article imageActress sues over on-set harassment

By Matt Harding     Apr 5, 2010 in Entertainment
In a storyline suitable for the show she was fired from, Desperate Housewives, actress Nicollette Sheridan is suing over on-set harassment.
TMZ first reported the lawsuit where Sheridan alleges the show's creator hit her in the face on the set and that she was fired after retaliating by complaining about him. The suit she filed on Monday says the incident resulted in her "losing millions in future earnings."
Sheridan, whose character Edie Britt was killed off the show last year, is suing for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, gender violence, and wrongful termination. She claims Marc Cherry, Desperate Housewives creator, created a hostile work environment and behaved in "an extremely abusive and aggressive manner.
Sheridan also claims Cherry directed his abuse at other cast and crew members including Teri Hatcher after she went above his head to ABC executives.
"I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies," Cherry told Sheridan, according to the lawsuit.
