The battle for Wisteria Lane heats up

Last week, former Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan filed a lawsuit against ABC and the show's creator Marc Cherry. She claims in her suit that she was physically abused by Cherry after she complained about him to the network. I found it all rather suspicious since Nicollette was written out of the show over a year ago....if this really happened, why would she wait so long before going public with it. No doubt, there's bad blood between her and the show. This whole mess just got a bit juicier since the four remaining original stars of the show, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria Parker and Marcia Cross, just issued a statement to People magazine in support of Cherry and praising their set environment as an 'amazingly positive experience', in contrast to Sheridan's claim that it was a hostile working environment. Who's telling the truth and who's lying? Maybe everyone is doing a bit of both but perhaps this kind of unpleasant attention is exactly what this six year old program needs in order to regenerate public interest in it. I, for one, am looking forward to watching how this real-life primetime soap opera plotline unfolds...
