nicollette sheridan trial gi Nicollette Sheridan slammed Teri Hatcher, says 'Desperate Housewives' creator Marc CherryFormer “Desperate Housewives” star Nicollette Sheridan was often unprepared for work, “insulting” to writers and slammed co-star Teri Hatcher according to show creator Marc Cherry.

On Wednesday (March 7), Cherry testified in the Sheridan’s ongoing wrongful termination and battery trial. His testimony included an account of a conversation he had with Sheridan during the show’s first season when she called Hatcher “meanest woman in the world,” reports Deadline.

And although he described Sheridan as a disruptive presence on the set, Cherry insists that Sheridan’s character — Edie Britt — was killed off for creative reasons; not because of any differences between Sheridan and himself.

Sheridan also alleges that Cherry “hit her upside the head” during a fight on set. An internal ABC investigation cleared Cherry of any wrongdoing, reports E! Online.
