Desperate Housewives stars to appear in court

Eva Longoria Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman have been named as witnesses, according to reports.

The stars of hit US show Desperate Housewives have been named as witnesses in a court case between former-show star Nicolette Sheridan and producer Marc Cherry, according to reports.

It’s thought the leading ladies of Wisteria Lane, Eva Longoria Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman, will be summoned to speak during the high profile hearing, as Nicolette Sheridan seeks to prove she was wrongfully fired from the show.

The actress was written out of the hit series during season five of the show, after her character Edie Britt was killed off during a dramatic storyline.

But according to movie website Deadline, the star is suing the Desperate Houswives’ executive producer Marc Cherry and studio ABC, claiming to have been wrongfully sacked from the show.

The actress is seeking a whopping $4 million in lost income during the lawsuit, claiming she was written out of the script after accusing Cherry of assault.

Sheridan’s claims first came to light at the time of the reported incident, when she alleged Cherry created a hostile working environment and axed her when she complained.

The glossy star also said he ‘took her aside and forcefully hit her across her face’ for querying a script.
