Nicollette Sheridan angry over 'Desperate Housewives' fate



Nicollette Sheridan took the high road after Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry bumped off her character, Edie Britt, not by just having her crash a car, but by having her crash a car while leaving her psycho husband and then getting electrocuted by a downed power line. Good thing she's not bitter.

Tbd-nicollettesheridan041509 Wait, scratch that: "(Killing  Edie) was a risky decision that could have devastating ramifications," Sheridan told TV Guide. "Somebody up there really wanted her dead. I think whoever Edie represented in Marc's life was somebody he didn't like. And he had a very difficult time distinguishing between fact and fiction."

Of course, it's not like Nikki was an obvious favorite. She whined about never being mentioned in Cherry's interviews, and never having her character added to the opening credits.

"When you have a jewel, why not polish it and put it out there for all to see?" she asked. She also complained about the show becoming "a little complacent," which she described as "frustrating." Maybe Cherry was friends with her ex-fiance, Michael Bolton.
