Looks like Nicollette Sheridan doesn't have many supporters!
The actress has accused show creator Marc Cherry of assault and battery on set (she's asking for $20 million), and now the remaining ladies - Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria - have released a collective statement:
- "It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicolette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment. It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day."
Sheridan also claims in the papers that Hatcher complained to ABC about Cherry and that Cherry said, "I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies. Hatcher, in turn, adds the following in a statement:
- "I'm honored to stand with Eva, Felicity and Marcia, as a group and clarify that our set environment is nothing less than an amazingly positive experience. I have never felt discriminated against. In fact, I have felt heard and respected by Marc and other executives in regards to both my professional and personal needs."
Either they're just protecting themselves or they truly stand by their boss in this matter... or both.
