legalbytes: nicollette’s ‘desperate’ lawsuit



This week in pop culture and law is dedicated to former Desperate Housewives star, Nicolette Sheridan, who is suing ABC and the show’s creator, Marc Cherry, for wrongful termination, assault and battery, and age discrimination. Among other things, Nicollette says that Cherry slapped her in the face and then had her killed off the show when she complained to the network. Cue the ‘Mary Alice’ voice over: “Sometimes when we get slapped in the face, we strike back with a legal case.” Then, watch my TV Guide Network segment, which uncovers exclusive scoop on how Marc Cherry may defend himself. Have a good weekend, Popbytes peeps!
