Nicollette Sheridan has found herself in the middle of yet another controversy. Following her ex-boyfriend’s tell-all book that promises to expose her spiteful relationship with Nicklas Soderblom, not to mention her bitter ties with her co-stars on Desperate Housewives, the 44-year-old actress is now rumored to be leaving ABC’s award-winning dramedy.
Rumors surged the internet when Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry revealed that Sheridan’s character will be crossing a huge moral boundary that she’s never crossed before on the show.
“It will have devastating consequences for her and lead to a shocking conclusion to her time on Wisteria Lane,” Cherry said.
In attempt to break her silence, Sheridan has laughed off rumors that she has been fired at the end of the fifth season of Desperate Housewives in which she plays realtor Edie Britt. On the contrary, she insists that her character is getting prepared for some explosive storylines, hinting that she will be the only star left on the series.
“Please! Edie’s going to be causing trouble. The house hags have done terrible, terrible things to Edie,” Sheridan revealed. “There will only be one moment of true revenge when all of them are gone, and Edie remains!”
Sheridan, who had her career breakthrough as Paige Matheson on the CBS night soap Knots Landing, was initially offered a minor role on Desperate Housewives. But since her character became popular, she was elevated to become the fifth lead character on the show, following Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman.
Meanwhile, fans can catch Desperate Housewives as it returns with new episodes beginning April 13. This Sunday’s episode, which is coincidentally called “Sunday,” picks up several months after Wisteria Lane was left in shambles from the twister. Fans are in for a wild ride as a surprise wedding ceremony with chockfull of secrets takes place.
