Hydroderm sues Teri Hatcher and her lips



Tbdterihatcher120607 While we’re talking about celebs in court, let’s point out that Teri Hatcher is being sued by skin care company Hydroderm for $2-million after allegedly breaking her contract by promoting rival brands. That’s a lot of lip gloss. T

he suit claims a 2005 agreement stated Hatcher wouldn’t promote other brands, but lo, Teri was seen last summer not only promoting City Cosmetics’ City Lips, but credited it with credited it with “helping her appear beautiful at an awards event,” and gave CityLips gift bags to guests at her birthday party, the Daily Mail says.

“Hatcher’s name, image and likeness have been linked to so many competitors’ products (at least 17!) that it is anyone’s guess as to what product keeps her skin and lips youthful,” the lawsuit states. Hatcher’s camp blames Hydroderm’s “unjustified and public assault” on the company’s failing to live up to its end of the agreement. Besides, Us is probably swearing the real secret is plastic surgery.
