Sheridan urged to settle Housewives lawsuit

The star filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against show creator Marc Cherry last year (10), alleging he slapped her in the face after she expressed an opinion about a script he had written, and then fired her when she complained to producers.

Sheridan, who played sexy real estate dealer Edie Britt in the series, later amended the suit but still sought damages for wrongful termination and gender discrimination.

During a hearing at Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday (29Aug11), her attorney Patrick Maloney called for jurors to be allowed to consider whether Sheridan was entitled to wages for at least two extra seasons, but Judge Elizabeth Allen White ruled that the star could only seek damages for one year's pay, which would total approximately $980,000 (£612,500), according to the Associated Press.

Judge White declared the show's producers had discretion to eliminate Sheridan's character and called for the star's legal team to settle the case ahead of a trial, scheduled to begin in October (11).

She warned, ""You're going to spend a lot of money on this case.""
