Nicollette Sheridan who stars as Edie Britt on “Desperate Housewives” was not marked for death until after the actress and show creator Marc Cherry had a physical encounter on set, a former show cut testified Wednesday.Edie Britt

It has been reported that Sheridan intimately involved with development of the show’s fifth season and didn’t hear about character Edie Britt’s death until December 2008, more than two months after Cherry’s right hand connected with Sheridan’s head in a widely disputed rehearsal incident.

It has been reported that Britt’s death was kept low to provide a shocking, much-needed ratings increase and to make her salary available for new actors in season six. However it wasn’t decision taken in retribution for her complaints after she was “tapped” on the head during the September 2008 rehearsal an incident that is at the heart of Sheridan’s battery and wrongful-termination claim.

While Sheridan stated it was a “hard” blow delivered in frustration one that left both of them stunned and forms the basis of her $6 million lawsuit, originally filed in April 2010.

Last year Cherry hinted that he may ask Nicollette Sheridan back for the series finale, but the actress has firmly denied her comeback on Wisteria Lane, saying “That’s news to me and I had an amazing time playing that character. I loved her dearly, but they killed her! She’s dead.
