Mystery witness emerges in 'Housewives' trial
LOS ANGELES (AP) -March 13, 2012 (WPVI) -- A judge wants to talk to a "Desperate Housewives" worker who claims he mistakenly received an email suggesting a cover-up of information about Nicollette Sheridan's firing from the show.
The man called Sheridan's attorney Sunday afternoon stating he was a low-level employee on the series, but received an email indicating messages about Sheridan's departure from the show would be purged.
The message was left as Sheridan's wrongful termination trial draws to a close, with closing arguments expected on Tuesday. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Allen White ordered the man to appear in court Tuesday to determine whether he should be allowed to testify.
Sheridan's attorney Mark Baute has claimed "Housewives" creator Marc Cherry and conspired to hide info about when they decided to kill off the actress' role.
