Nicollette Sheridan's Desperate Housewives character was a real tramp—and she couldn't be prouder.
"That was embarrassing," the actress quipped on the stand Thursday after her attorney showed the jury a five-minute montage of a number of Edie Britt's more salacious scenes throughout her five seasons on the ABC series—before she was unceremoniously fired by Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry and ABC in 2009, as Sheridan is alleging.
"She was a colorful character," Sheridan said of Edie. "She was a singular voice on the show. She was sexy, audacious, honest and overt. She had a heart and people loved to hate her."
Sheridan testified about her earlier days on the job in the morning, but her afternoon testimony kicked off with her describing a fight with Cherry on Sept. 28, 2008, that allegedly turned violent.
