Nicollette Sheridan’s Supreme Court Appeal Denied: Is Her ‘Desperate Housewives’ Feud Over?

The drama ended on Wisteria Lane back in May, but the off-screen tension between former “Desperate Housewives” star Nicollette Sheridan and the show’s creator Marc Cherry lingered. That’s because the woman behind Edie Brick can’t seem to give up on her lawsuit against her old bosses at ABC and Touchstone Television.
It all started a few years ago when Sheridan alleged that Cherry hit her in the head while demonstrating how she should play a particular scene. She went on to claim that he fired her because of the incident. The network and the producer held firm in their rebuttal that her character had just run her course. They contended that Edie was simply written out, like so many other actors before and after her in the primetime soap. A two-week trial over the whole mess ended in March with a deadlocked jury and in August her request for a retrial was dismissed.
Still the door was left open for Sheridan to file an amended suit focusing on the notion that she was let go for complaining about her working conditions. That same door was slammed shut in her face this week, when the California Supreme Court rejected her appeal. Sounds like it could be the end of Sheridan’s battle. What do you think: Is Sheridan’s “Desperate Housewives” feud over?
