Nicollette is not the one when it comes to her money and she is not going to let a little thing like a mistrial stand between her and possibly millions of dollars. Sheridan, who claims she was booted from ABC’s Desperate Housewives after a string of arguments (and a pimp slap) by creator Marc Cherry, will have her second chance at
a check redemption when the case returns to a new court on September 10th.
ABC and Disney, which are jointly owned, asked the judge to dismiss a second case but were refused. The first case ended in a hung jury, with an 8 to 4 decision. Basically, Nicollette was one vote away from a check check check! Since she can practically smell a settlement on the horizon, Sheridan is pressing her luck for another trial, hoping the suits will back down and pay her handsomely.
I predict that Nicollette will be rolling in the deep, cash wise in a few months. No way in hell is ABC going to go through another costly trial and re-hash all the sordid details of the Desperate Housewives people. And to top it off, I predict that Sheridan will write a tell-all about this entire fiasco. Or better yet, she will make ABC pay her not to write one. Mark my words!
