Nicolette Sheridan, Desperate Housewives
In 2004, Nicollette Sheridan played the role of Edie Britt in the comedy-drama series from ABC, Desperate Housewives. After her successful portrayal of the character, Nicollette got nominated in 2005 for the Golden Globe award for Best Supporting Actress in the Series, Miniseries or Television Film category. She was also the 48th ranked personality in Maxim magazine’s 2006 Hot 100 List.
Similar to her character’s feisty persona though, Nicollette quarreled with the rest of the cast of Desperate Housewives. The actresses of the miniseries would be upset if they felt that they were not getting the right screen time and emphasis, among others. It got to a point when the producers themselves couldn’t take it anymore and had to remove Nicollette’s character in the fifth season. The American actress then went on to file a lawsuit and claimed that she was physically assaulted on the set. In the end, though, her case was dismissed.
