Nicolette Sheridan was once a Hollywood star actress who was a regular on the red carpet of both award shows and various movie premieres who became persona non grata after her exit from the hit television show "Desperate Housewives". Why she would have even considered taking the path to create the situation for her removal from the hit show is beyond the understanding of most entertainment observers but now that she is starting to re-emerge from Hollywood obscurity what is the thing that Nicolette Sheridan decides to do: resume her fight with the Touchstone/ABC studio over her dismissal and do so in as public a manner as possible.
Over the past year Nicolette Sheridan has been seen in the television movie "Christmas Spirit", has completed filming for the 2014 movie "Let's Kill Ward's Wife". Her career is on the upswing and this is a great thing for her because she went from being an actress on one of the most popular television shows in Hollywood to after her firing from "Desperate Houswives" basically being frozen out of Hollywood as she has not been involved in a television series since 2009.
No one knows what took place on the set of "Desperate Housewives" but Nicolette Sheridan is a talented actress who one would have expected could add something to one of the many television series that have been on the air in the past several years. Yet no one was willing to consider her for a role on network television which makes one wonder if Hollywood producers and directors felt she brought too much negative attention and trouble to her workplace and their television projects.
In 2014 Nicolette Sheridan is being considered for a role in the UK movie "If" but no one is talking about that or her slow but steady resurgence up the acting ranks of Hollywood. Instead, the focus is on her lawsuit against her past employer. Many an entertainment insider wonders if Nicolette Sheridan had not made the lawsuit such a public affair and had announced the fact that a new trial has been approved in a quieter manner if she would have been able to move on from "Desperate Housewives" onto another television show in Hollywood.
Sometimes public embarrassment of another, especially an employer when both parties may have been wrongdoers, is not always a smart move.
