NEWS ROUNDUP: Nicollette Sheridan Lawsuit Update, Austin Butler Joins CARRIE, WALKING DEAD Leak

Dozens of ‘Desperate Housewives’ deaths shown to jury
Nicollette Sheridan, 48, is suing show creator Marc Cherry and Touchstone Television Productions for wrongful termination and battery. She has testified that Cherry hit her in the head when she repeatedly questioned script changes and then wrote her off the show and out of her $175,000 per episode salary after she complained about the alleged assault.

With the video -- titled "Deaths on Wisteria Lane" -- the defense positioned the fatal electrocution of Edie Britt, Sheridan's character, as just one of more than 40 deaths in the show's eight seasons.

Under cross-examination, Sheridan sparred with defense attorney Adam Levin over how she characterized the blow to her head. She acknowledged calling it a "slap" in a complaint with a state employment authorities and a "hit" in a deposition, but bristled when the attorney accused her of changing her story.

"It's just ridiculous to me," she snapped. Judge Elizabeth White later told her to "calm down and answer the questions."
