Eva Longoria: 'Desperate Housewives trial is a stain on legacy'

By
Eva Longoria has said that she never expected Nicollette Sheridan's case against Marc Cherry and ABC to go to trial.

The Desperate Housewives star confessed that the trial, in which Sheridan sued Cherry and ABC for wrongful termination, has put a dampener on the series' final season.

"I was surprised that there was even a trial and it went that far," Longoria told Katie Couric on Good Morning America.

"I love Nicollette, and I love Marc Cherry, and I love our work environment. It's a stain on our legacy as a hit show. It was just unfortunate, the whole thing."

Sheridan's case against ABC was declared a mistrial in mid-March after the jury became deadlocked and unable to reach a verdict.

However, Cherry was cleared after a judge dropped the battery charges against the Desperate Housewives showrunner.

Sheridan had claimed that he hit her on the head, though he insisted that it was purely a tap for artistic direction.
