Nicolette Sheridan

For five seasons, Nicolette Sheridan played Edie Britt on “Desperate Housewives.” But her run on the show abruptly ended when she was fired. Sheridan filed a $20 million lawsuit against the show creator Marc Cherry alleging that he physically assaulted her and when she complained about the abuse, she was handed her walking papers. The jury failed to come up with a decision and the case was declared a mistrial. However, Sheridan has filed for an appeal to have the case retried.
