Nicollette Sheridan Will Stop Claiming Marc Cherry Bitchslapped Her

Nicollette Sheridan, who’s been absent from the public consciousness so long we almost forgot Vanessa Williams used to be on a different ABC show, is not going to pursue her $20 million claim against gay Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry. Well, at least not the abuse part. In a court filing, the former Edie Britt says she will no longer go after Cherry for inflicting intentional emotional or physical abuse, as she intended in the original April claim. (In return, ABC dropped its requirement that Sheridan submit to a psychological evaluation.) So, what, this is just a wrongful termination suit now? Bo-ring!
