Eva Longoria Parker won’t take sides in the legal spat between Nicollette Sheridan and Marc Cherry, but she will say this: that the Desperate Housewives set is a healthy work environment.
“The only thing I can say is we don’t have a hostile set, and Marc’s really nice, and Nicollette’s a nice girl, too,” Longoria Parker says in an interview set to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Sheridan, 46, who played Edie Britt on the show, filed court papers this week saying she was fired after complaining that Cherry, the show’s creator, had hit her in the face on set.
