Nicollette Sheridan Case: Battery Charge Dismissed

Originally posted 03/13/2012 05:30PM

There's been a huge sigh of relief on Wisteria Lane.

A judge on Tuesday dismissed the most sensational charge in Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination suit – a battery charge against producer Marc Cherry for allegedly slapping her in the head during an argument.

The jury in Los Angeles must still consider whether the actress, 48, was fired from ABC's Desperate Housewives in retaliation for complaining about the incident.

Superior Court judge Elizabeth White said there was not enough evidence to support the battery charge, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Desperate Housewives Welcomes New Stars … Including Betty White?

Originally posted 07/28/2010 01:00AM

There always seems to be available real estate on Wisteria Lane for new neighbors moving in from other TV neighborhoods: Beverly Hills, 90210’s Brian Austin Green will join the Desperate Housewives cast as a working class contractor who catches the eye of both Bree (Marcia Cross) and another newbie, Ugly Betty’s Vanessa Williams. And series creator Marc Cherry also hopes to save some property for his longtime friend Betty White.

"Marcia will have a new love interest in the form of Brian Austin Green," Cherry said at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "We wanted Bree to be involved with a hunky blue collar contractor and take her out of her refined and educated world – someone who's a bit younger and someone who would be challenging to Bree. We read the first script of the season and I introduced Brian as Marcia's new love interest and then I said, 'You're welcome, Marcia!' and Marcia blushed."

Dixie Carter Dies at Age 70

Originally posted 04/11/2010 09:45AM

Television and Broadway actress Dixie Carter passed away Saturday morning at the age of 70.

"This has been a terrible blow to our family," her husband, actor Hal Holbrook, said in a statement. "We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy."

Carter died from complications arising from endometrial cancer, publicist Steve Rohr tells PEOPLE.

Best known for her role as interior designer Julia Sugarbaker in Designing Women, the Tennessee native earned an Emmy nomination in 2007 for her guest appearance on Desperate Housewives.


Her Broadway credits include a stint in Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2004.

Carter and Holbrook, who married in 1984, appeared together last year in That Evening Sun, an independent film based on a short story by author William Gay.

In addition to her husband, Carter is survived by two daughters from a previous marriage.
