George Lopez got the usually tight-lipped Longoria to open up about the explosive lawsuit between Sheridan and Cherry on Monday’s Lopez Tonight.
Sheridan filed the $20-million wrongful termination lawsuit against Cherry last year; in it, she claims he’d struck her twice, in the face and the head. Their trial is slated to begin next month.
“There is a bit of like a law thing going on between Nicollette Sheridan and Marc Cherry who created Desperate Housewives,” Lopez said. “How did you you get involved in that?”
“I know: How did I get involved?” Longoria said. “I was like, ‘Why did I get pulled into this?’ We all have to give a deposition because what they are fighting about. I just saw that her deposition came out that Marc had said these mean things.”
“It was at my wedding, and Marc Cherry did a toast and the toast is like a roast so it makes fun of you. I don’t know what she had said, but it was not anything close to what he had said — everybody laughed!
“Like [San Antonio Spurs coach Greg] Popovich did a toast to [Eva’s ex, basketball star] Tony [Parker] and roasted him, too. If you take a sentence out of context, you can always …”
Lopez said, “And that’s what it is?”
“Yeah!” Longoria replied.
Cherry and Sheridan’s trial begins June 8.
