Nicolette Sheridan Versus Terri Hatcher

The Corsair cannot get enough of Nicollette Sheridan. It takes a whole lotta man to handle that much woman, if you know what I mean and I think you do. The Corsair is like a rabid wolverene when he gets ahold of his prey, he just won't let go, no matter what -- vicious *two snaps and a neck roll* And The Corsair has a hankering for Nicolette tartare if you know what I mean, and I think you do. So, when that significant cultural artifact, The Star published an article about catfighting on the set of Desperate Housewives, well, we were so there:

"Catfighting Desperate Housewives Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher can't stand each other on-screen and off, sources say. 'It seems Nicollette has been badmouthing Teri and telling people that Teri's too skinny and not attractive, and that she shouldn't have gotten the lead role in the show,' a source reveals to Star. 'Teri just thinks Nicollette is way too abrasive,' adds an insider."

How great is this catfight? Nicollette abrasive? Nooo ... Teri Hatcher, too skinny? Nooo, if you know what I mean, and I think you do ...

"The problems apparently began during casting. Hatcher, 39 -- who shot to fame as Lois Lane on TV's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997 -- landed the lead part of divorced, single-mom Susan Mayer. It's the role that, Sheridan, 40 -- who left her starring role in Knots Landing in 1993 -- admitted she originally wanted, says a source. Instead, Sheridan got the smaller role of serial divorcee Edie Britt --and the source says she threw a fit when she learned the character was originally slated for just one guest appearance, a source says."

The Corsair pours himself a glass of 1990 Chateau d'Yquem, then splashes a little on the ground, to celebrate his "dead homiez".

"A week before shooting was to begin, Sheridan threatened to walk out if her part wasn't made into a recurring role. She then vowed to walk out again just three days before shooting unless they promoted her to a full-time role, the source claims. 'Nicollette probably thinks she is a bigger name than Teri,' the close source says. 'She had barely been on the set for a week when she started complaining about her co-stars -- mainly Teri.'"

The Corsair chuckles softly.

"Sheridan, a real-life divorcee whose relationships with the likes of actor Harry Hamlin and satiny crooner Michael Bolton ended in disaster, is 'very much like the character she plays,' the insider says. On set, the insider says, some of the other actresses are definitely feeling the heat, viewing Sheridan as an 'outsider' who's far 'too vocal.' Sheridan is unfazed. 'It seems like Nicollette doesn't like the rest of the cast either,' says the source. 'And it's been that way since day one.'"
