Nicolette Sheridan Tweaks ‘Desperate Housewives’ Lawsuit

To bolster her case against ABC and former boss Marc Cherry, former Desperate Housewives star Nicolette Sheridan has amended the $20 million lawsuit, alleging that the network has in fact initiated an investigation that confirmed that she got a “light tap on the side of her head” during rehearsal on the set of the ABC series.

Sheridan, whose Edie Britt character was killed off two seasons ago on Desperate Housewives, is suing for wrongful termination, assault and battery and discrimination. The case was filed April 5.

Some rewording has been done on the original complaint, while two paragraphs were added relating the response from the alphabet network that investigations found out that she was merely tapped on the side of her head. The additional paragraph said:

“In December 2008, Sheridan was informed that ABC had fully investigated her complaint and had concluded that she was not mistreated. In fact, the Executive Vice President of ABC Studios, Howard Davine, claimed that “Marc (Cherry) simply gave her a light tap on the side of her head for the sole purpose of providing direction for a scene they were rehearsing.”

“With that, ABC decided to take no further action and closed the investigation, informing Sheridan that “we will finish off the season in the spirit of professionalism and courtesy that has been the normal course for Desperate Housewives.”

Instead of professionalism, however, Sheridan’s lawyers allege that ABC decided to fire her, alongside being given “a strict publicity plan to follow to ‘break the story’ that her character Edie was leaving the show.”

In effect, the amended case seeks to assert that Sheridan was fired because of the complaint.
