Report: ABC to Offer Nicollette Sheridan 'Peace Package'

ABC bosses are reportedly in talks to offer Nicollette Sheridan a "peace package" so she can drop the $20 million dollar lawsuit she filed against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry.

Bosses at ABC reportedly want to resolve the case before it heads to court, after Nicollette's lawyers said they intend to subpoena cast and crew members to give evidence if the matter goes before a judge.

Nicollette Sheridan Sues Desperate Housewives for $20 Million

An ABC source tells the Britain's Sunday Express, "Our legal team is working to get both sides together to see if they can help broker a compromise. This doesn't mean that anyone is going to hand Nicollette $20 million to drop her action and walk away but there are various incentives that might be put on the table."

As you recall, Nicollette claims Marc slapped her during an argument about a scene while she was still on the show, then fired her when she complained about his behavior.

Desperate Housewives Women Side With Creator

Nicollette's former co-workers Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross have released a joint statement expressing their support for Marc Cherry--not Nicollette.

Do you guys think Nicollette's case is a load of crap and she's just upset about being let go from the case? Or would Marc Cherry really risk his job by slapping her? Tell us your thoughts!
