Just like The Hills cast members are standing by creator Adam Divello in the sexual assault case against him filed by Heidi Montag, The Desperate Housewives are standing by creator Marc Cherry in the claims filed by ex cast member Nicolette Sheridan that he physically assaulted her.
In a joint statement released by Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria, and Marcia Cross, they explain their backing of Cherry;
“It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment. It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day.”
