Sheridan’s lawsuit over firing rejected
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Supreme Court has declined to review Nicollette Sheridan’s lawsuit over the demise of her role on “Desperate Housewives.”
The state’s high court said Friday it would deny an appeal by the actress in her wrongful termination case against ABC and Touchstone Television.
Sheridan said she was fired because she claimed she was hit in the head by series creator Marc Cherry.
ABC attorneys claimed Sheridan’s contract simply was not renewed.
In March jurors deadlocked after a two-week trial. An appeals court found in August that Sheridan was not entitled to a new trial, but should be allowed to file an amended lawsuit claiming she was retaliated against because she complained about her boss. “Desperate Housewives” concluded its eight-season run this year.
N.J. Gov. Christie has cameo on ‘SNL’
NEW YORK (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie can’t get enough of “Saturday Night Live.” The governor made a cameo appearance on “Weekend Update.”
The tough-talking governor poked fun at his notoriously short temper and the familiar blue fleece jacket that he has worn while touring the state following Superstorm Sandy.
Christie thanked the Red Cross and first responders. He also thanked his wife, who he said has put up with “a husband who has smelled like a wet fleece for the last three weeks.”
He took a swipe at New Jersey officials who failed to follow his orders before Sandy, refusing to thank “any of the stupid mayors” who ignored his evacuation orders, calling them “idiots.”
Christie closed by quoting from the Bruce Springsteen song “Atlantic City.”
