Nicollette Sheridan

Targeted for Death

By OJ

Nicollette Sheridan
's character on "Desperate Housewives" was set to die, long before Marc Cherry struck her ... and the code name for her demise was OJ.

Marc Cherry testified today in the trial -- where Nicollette is suing Cherry and ABC for wrongful termination -- that the writers were playing with scenarios for killing her off months before the now-famous blowup.  Cherry produced writers notes, which included the phrase, "Steven drinks OJ."

Cherry claims the phrase was a reference to Sheridan's on-screen hubby killing her character ... and Cherry also told jurors OJ was a reference to OJ Simpson, who famously killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.

Really a script direction that says Steven drinks OJ is supposed to be proof? Gee couldn't possibly mean Steven drank a glass of orange juice. Stupidest defense I ever heard.

"a reference to OJ Simpson, who famously killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman."

have fun with that statement. Regardless of the facts i'm pretty sure he was given an Innocent verdict.

Did I miss the video release or something? When did it get to the point where anyone could state as a fact that OJ killed those people? Normally we say "alleged" until the quilty verdict/plea. Now all we can say is suspected. Or say whatever you like. The fact is you were not there and the man has not admitted it so we truly don't know.

Maybe they just got sick of seeing someone gross enough to let Michael Bolton touch her. http://www.comunitee.com/comunitee/showComuniteeBarArticle/3087281/4838/5/587

You people complaining about TMZ stating what every semi-intelligent American KNOWS- OJ KILLED NICOLE. Just because a bunch of ignoramuses let him off because they confused DNA for blood ("Lots of people have the same blood type," is what they said) doesn't change the fact that he did it.

It was OJ's son from before he had kids with Nicole Brown who killed Nicole and her boy-toy, not OJ. Feel free to investigate.

I don't think that having a character drink a glass of juice is a plot point worthy of mentioning in notes, so his version seems plausible. That would shoot her whole "wrongful termination" theory to bits.

I'm calling BS. He's a liar. I hope the judge/jury is getting it.
