Nicollette claims that her character Edie Brit was killed off in 2009 only after she had a physical altercation with Cherry, which she says she reported to ABC.

The  47-year-old also claims she was fired due to “unlawful discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, and age.”

In her lawsuit, Sheridan notes a post-firing interview that Cherry gave where he noted that: “We will find a new kind of sexiness through Wisteria Lane. What we won’t do is cast another fortysomething sexy blonde.”

She further alleges that “Cherry’s treatment of Sheridan, including his physical assault and battery of her, occurred because he is a homosexual man and she is a heterosexual woman.”
