I've been following the Nicolette Sheridan case. I don't know anything about her character. I never watched his crappy show until Vanessa Williams was added to the cast (fall of 2010) to attract viewers but given not much to do because Marc Cherry's just another racist.
So anyway, a number of things came up in the case and I was confused and mentioned it to Ty who hooked me up with a producer who knows all the players. The producer then said I should talk to ___ who is a good friend of C.I.'s. So I did.
Here's the story I'm getting (and I believe it). There's Teri Hatcher and then there's a bunch of bitches. Vanessa's not included in that mix, this is before she was on the show.
That's hilarious to me because Teri's the only one with a career. I see that as God watching out for Terri because she, it turns out, is a very nice person. I love Susan and I'm always talking about how talented I think Teri is. I'm so glad about that now because she apparently is a very sweet person and the only decent one.
The woman who plays Lynette? A total piece of work who you'll probably see in Betty Ford at some point. But you won't see her in anything other than a Lifetime movie or two when this shows goes off the air because she's got no career. Ha-ha-ha.
I'm sad to learn that Marcia Cross is a bitch and was a real bitch to Nicolette Sheridan. But, again, God works in natural ways. And Marcia won't have another hit either.
Then there's Gabby, the failed movie actress. Who is too identified with her role to ever be anything else. Ha ha.
Only Terri Hatcher had a career before this show and she's the only who'll walk away with one. She's genuinely nice which makes people want to work with her, audiences love her which helps her get work and she's so talented that she makes it look so easy.
Nicolette Sheridan, I'm told, was not an angel on the set. Nor was she a total bitch. But her problem was that Felicity Huffman hated her and hated the attention Nicolette got. Felicity was the leader on the push Nicolette off the show.
And basically the entire cast went along with it except for Teri Hatcher and Doug Savant. (I am so sorry for all the mean things I've said about Doug Savant.)
You would not believe the petty jealousy of Felicity Huffman. Or her ridiculous idea -- supported at one point by Marc Cherry -- that Lynette could become a femme fatal for the show.
Has Huffman never looked in the mirror? On a good day, she can pass for "well groomed." But even on that day, no one would mistake her for pretty. Add in that she walks like a man and you have to wonder how she ever thought she was going to be the new Edie?
But she thought that. Stupid idiot.
She has to be filmed very carefully and ideally from the left side. The right side of her face doesn't film well and she's also got a "Popeye mouth" on the right side.
I was confused too.
Remember how he pours spinach in his mouth open on one side? That's the right side of her face.
Last night I wrote about the awful Eric Holder declaring Barack to basically be a king.
Glen Ford has a column where he calls it out as well:
It turns out that due process of law is not what we thought it was, these last two centuries. Attorney General Holder defended the president’s authority to summarily execute, without sanction of the courts, or formal charges, or even evidence of crime, persons designated by him as enemies of the United States. You can’t get more king-like than that. Holder acted as if he’d found a previously undetected loophole in the Constitution. “‘Due process’ and ‘judicial process,’” he said, “are not one and the same, particularly when it comes to national security.” According to Holder, “The Constitution guarantees due process,” but it does not guarantee judicial process. In other words, the U.S. Constitution does not guarantee people access to the courts, even if they are targeted for execution. If that were true, it would be a worthless Constitution, but the U.S. Supreme Court has convincingly ruled, in a 2004 case, that citizens who are detained as enemy combatants have a right to confront the government on the facts of the matter “before a neutral decision maker” – that is, before a court of some kind. Certainly, such rights would apply to someone the president wants killed.
