Nicollette Sheridan, Former “Desperate Housewives” actress Nicollette Sheridan is scheduled to testify Thursday in a courtroom battle with the show’s producer-writer over the TV killing of a character she played for five seasons.
Sheridan, 48, is locked in a courtroom battle against Mark Cherry and ABC Entertainment, claiming their decision to kill off Edie Britt, her character on the show, was wrongful termination of her employment.
Several of Sheridan’s former cast mates — including Eva Longoria, Marcia Cross, James Denton, Felicity Huffman and Neal McDonough — are on the list of witnesses expected to defend Cherry.
The actress wiped tears after her lawyer Mark Baute concluded his opening statements Wednesday in the Los Angeles trial that is expected to last two weeks.
Cherry “lost his temper on the set and smacked Nicollette Sheridan on the side of the head — hard,” Sheridan’s attorney said.
It happened after she raised a question about the script Cherry had written for a scene in the seventh episode of season five, he said.
Jurors must decide whether Cherry committed battery in the September 24, 2008 rehearsal and if his decision to end her work on the show was retaliation for her complaints against him.
Several months and 11 episodes after she complained, Sheridan was written out of the show, Baute said.
