Appearing today on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, Eva Longoria was asked about the lawsuit brought on this week by her former co-star, Nicollette Sheridan, against her current boss, Marc Cherry.
While initially saying she doesn't know "any of the details," Tony Parker's more beautiful half did proceed to open up about an incident that took place around 2008.
"I know that they did have a thing on set - I guess it was a couple of years ago," she said. "It's so long ago, the actual incident, and I wasn't on set when it happened," she said. But apparently this incident had happened, and she felt it was wrong.
"I am trying to get the dirt here on set, but no one's allowed to talk about it."
Longoria referred to Cherry as "sweet" and added: "He really probably could not harm a fly."
But the actress did elaborate more on what she knows, saying: "[Nicollette] was doing a scene, and... he was showing her how to do a scene. Honestly, I wish I knew."
That seems to be the common consensus forming: Cherry and Sheridan were arguing about a scene that involved a slap, when the Desperate Housewives creator took it upon himself to physically show his star what he was looking for.
That certainly makes more sense than reports that Cherry truly smacked Sheridan across the face out of anger. Such a confrontation would never have remained under the radar for this long.
As always, we'll follow up on this story when more information is available.
