Beloved Characters Who Were Written Off Of Shows Because Of The Actors Portraying Them

Desperate Housewives – Nicollette Sheridan Had An Equal Amount Of Drama Off Screen


There’s a reason Nicollette Sheridan scored $200,000 per episode in Desperate Housewives – she is a natural drama queen. Unlike most of the actresses who made it to season 8, Sheridan only scraped season 5. Presumably, Marc Cherry, the drama-crazed creator of the show, was being pressured to cut costs; he rationally came to the conclusion the best move would be to sack the neurotic sorority queen making $200,000 an episode.

Following this decision, Sheridan filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Cherry; turned out he merely tapped her on the head, and the judge decided to throw out the case.
