Marc Cherry:

No Hard Feelings

Against Nicollette ... Really??

3/8/2012 2:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Desperate Housewives" creator Marc Cherry just fed the jury a spoonful of crap in his court battle with Nicollette Sheridan ... swearing he WASN'T ANGRY with Nicollette when she accused him of striking her.

Pants. On. Fire. 

As we previously reported, Cherry insists Nicollette straight up lied when she claimed he battered her when she questioned a script change back in 2008. Cherry claims he merely tapped her on the head while trying to explain a physical stunt for a scene.

Nicollette claims Cherry then killed her off the show because she complained.

Today, Cherry took the stand in L.A. County Superior Court and said ... not only did he NOT write her off in retaliation ... but he says he wasn't even a tiny bit upset when he found out she complained.

So, if YOU had just been accused of a crime you swear you didn't commit ... you wouldn't be a smidge perturbed? We thought so. 

Still, we gotta ask ...

No, the charge is murder in the first degree. And accessory to murder. Accessory to murder on a second count. No criminal court, but my own :-)

There are a lot of people in Hollywood pulling for her - and Nof is one of them.


I don't care how allegedly difficult she was on the set.


That day or any other day.


You don't smack her.


Then write-her-off-the-show.


Who are you, anyway - God.

the under'lying' problem is that he has been angry all of his life because of never being close to what his last name references

Fascinating trial. But the prosecution has to prove malice. Question is, did Cherry not get along with Nicolette due to sexual tension or is he a gay man intimadated by a female with a male tough guy streak? Masculine attitude is like kryptonite for gays. And NC is known for being a tough gal.

It could just be that he has been able to let it all go. After all, it was several years ago.

Seriously, I didn't think Sheridan had a case here, but, the more Cherry speaks, the more it looks like she actually deserves some kind of compensation.

Marc, you are your own worth witness.

Marc Cherry only cared about one woman in his entire life - his mother. And you know how men that only love their mother, middle-aged, lived at home with her, etc are... You just know his computer if full of kiddie pics.

I'm glad he hit her. But I don't believe him.

He is a coward. A weak little coward who thinks he can abuse his power and abuse a woman, then cause her to lose her job and income, just to continue to have power over her because she spoke out that she did not like that you hit her.
