Actress Eva Longoria arrives at a celebration for 'A Practical Handbook for the Boyfriend,' written by Felicity Huffman and Patricia Wolff, at Iconology on February 5, 2007 in Los Angeles, California.
Eva Longoria Parker appears to be as surprised as everyone else with the news that Nicollette Sheridan has filed a lawsuit against "Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry – and the actress hopes the suit doesn't hurt the show's image.
"It's a big lawsuit, it's a big deal, I love the show so much, that I would hate for anything to really tarnish the reputation of the show," she said during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" on Wednesday. "I really would like all of it to go away."
Eva said she was not on set when the alleged incident occurred in September 2008, but said it is hard for her to imagine Marc being violent.
"He's funny and sweet… and probably could not harm a fly. He's just so sweet. I do know they had a thing on set, I guess it was a couple of years ago," Eva said, referring to Nicollette's claims that her former boss struck her "across the head and face" on the set – and once she complained, she was fired from the show.
Eva also said that her former co-star was a joy to work with, adding, "Nicolette's a sweet girl too, I'm really confused about this whole thing."
Eva explained that she's had no contact with Nicolette since the blonde bombshell left the ABC series.
"I haven't talked to her since she left the show… we used to be really friendly when she was here, but she was kind of on vacation for awhile, so I haven't seen her around in LA," Eva said. "I would love to see her to find out if everything is OK."
