  • Teri Hatcher sued by beauty company for breach of contract

    Teri Hatcher has angrily hit back at bosses of a cosmetics firm, who are suing her for breach of contract, insisting she complied with all their terms.

    The Desperate Housewives star signed up to a $2.4 million contract to solely promote LA skincare company, Hydroderm, but executives there have filed legal papers claiming she promoted other beauty items at the same time.

    Hatcher insists the allegations are ‘totally false and completely without merit’, and feels she is the victim in the case because management changes at Hydroderm left her unsure of the contract.

    The actress’s lawyer said in a statement: ‘Clearly, Hydroderm has embarked on this unjustified and public assault on Teri Hatcher’s good name, reputation and celebrity in a transparent and pathetic effort to distract from its own failure to live up to its end of the agreement. Ms. Hatcher will respond swiftly and decisively by appropriate legal means to recover everything she is owed under her contract, as well as compensatory and punitive damages for Hydroderm’s outrageous accusations.’
