Desperate Housewives star, Nicollette Sheridan, is suing the creator of the show, Marc Cherry, for reasons of assault.
The lawsuit claims that Cherry slapped the actress during the filming of the 5th season, and Sheridan immediately reported it to ABC. Although ABC never did anything about it, things between Cherry and Sheridan got increasingly worse, and he eventually killed her off the show.
Sheridan states that his aggression has been apparent since the beginning of Desperate Housewives, and he created a hostile environment for the crew to work in.
She is now seeking $20 million in damages. After all the negativity he has supposedly brought to the set, he slapped someone and they finally slapped him back!
