Remember that episode of Desperate Housewives where the series creator Marc Cherry slappity slapped slapped Edie across the face after she sassed his ass one day? Well, you shouldn’t remember it because it never happened onscreen, but it did go down behind the scenes. That’s what Nicollette Sheridan is saying anyway.
TMZ reports that Nicollette filed a lawsuit against Marc Cherry saying that he was Joan Crawford to her Christina. In the documents, Nicollette claims that on September 24, 2008, Marc hit her in the face and head after she ate the last bear claw. No, he allegedly brought down his hand on her after she questioned something in the script. After Nicollette went to her trailer, Marc knocked on her door and begged for her forgiveness
When Nicollette complained to ABC about Marc’s abusive ways, they didn’t do anything about it. Marc’s acts of cuntery got worse until he eventually fired her from the show.
Nicollette claims she wasn’t the only one who suffered abuse at the hand of Marc Cherry Bomb. Nicollette says that he behaved in an “extremely abusive and aggressive manner toward the individuals who work on the show.” She even says in the lawsuit that when Teri Hatcher complained to the network about Marc, he said out loud, “I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies.”
Nicollette is suing for assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination. She wants $20 million or more.
The camera dudes on DH need to turn their lenses around and start following Marc Cherry’s bald head. It sounds like he’s the crazy bitch who really brings the theatrical bitchiness. I mean, who (allegedly) slaps Edie in the face? Edie’s the one who does the slapping around there, not the other way around. If this mess is true, Marc needs to go sit next to the vending machine in the break room and leave the slapping to the professionals.
