Teri Hatcher doesn't use Botox, but is being sued for firing marketing manager

tbd-terihatcher081310.jpgTeri Hatcher has raised some eyebrows by posting unretouched photos of herself in a bath towel on her Facebook page to prove she doesn't use Botox. Oh, and because she's getting sued for firing a business partner, allegedly without cause. Let's start with the naked photos.

"Out of the bath getting ready for bed. Thought about all those damn critics of my face. Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants, no matter what 'they' say," Hatcher, 45, wrote in captions for photos she took of herself  and posted on Facebook. "Decided I'd shoot myself in to reveal some truths about 'beauty' and hope it makes you all easier on yourself. ... I can be mad, or confused or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey."

Wow, that's, um, great and all, but then there's the matter of her being sued by Jennifer Glassman, a marketing veteran who helped launch Hatcher's ISBE Productions in 2006. Teri's ABC-based venture ended up selling Burnt Toast to Lifetime and the scripts for Fried and Mercury Rising to ABC. The website www.gethatched.com was getting ready to launch when Teri allegedly sent e-mails to business contacts saying she and Glassman were no longer partners; Disney's Touchstone TV then apparently gave Glassman the ax.

Glassman says she had a 50 percent stake in ISBE, but was deliberately excluded and fired so Teri and Disney wouldn't have to pay her. Disney and Teri are not amused.

"This lawsuit is based upon ridiculous fabrications and is completely without merit," Hatcher's rep tells the Hollywood Reporter. "It is unfortunate that the many opportunities Ms. Hatcher afforded the former employee are now being so implausibly twisted and contorted. The suit will be vigorously defended by the Walt Disney Co. and by Ms. Hatcher's attorneys, who also intend to file substantial counterclaims against the former employee for her reckless and premeditated misconduct on her departure."

Better knuckle down, Jen; The Mouse House is ruthless when it comes to litigation.
