Nicollette Sheridan says she felt compelled to bring a lawsuit against Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry, following an incident last year in which the actress says her boss struck her across the face.

Now, Sheridan's former co-workers feel equally compelled to stand up for Cherry.

The main Desperate Housewives cast members - Eva Longoria Parker, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Felicity Huffman - have issued a joint statement that pledges full support for Cherry. It reads:

"It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment.

"It is, in fact, the opposite. The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day."

Because Teri Hatcher was singled out in the lawsuit - Sheridan alleges Cherry said he hopes Hatcher "gets hit by a car and dies" - that actress says she never authorized Sheridan's attorneys to use her name and:

"While my adoration and respect for the classic and dynamic chemistry of the characters of Susan and Edie is indelible, I'm honored to stand with Eva, Felicity and Marcia, as a group and clarify that our set environment is nothing less than an amazingly positive experience. I have never felt discriminated against. In fact, I have felt heard and respected by Marc and other executives in regards to both my professional and personal needs."

Man, no Desperate Housewives spoilers or storylines can compare to the drama taking place away from the set of this hit show. Whose side are you on in the battle between Sheridan and Cherry?

The stakes were raised for the American Idol finalists last night.

It was Elvis Presley week, for starters, as it's always a challenge to sing classic singles by one of the most iconic artists of all-time.

Meanwhile, Adam Lambert served as a mentor, bringing extra attention to the broadcast by fans of last year's runner-up. As if that wasn't enough, the contestants took the stage aware that TWO of them would be sent home, following last week's save of Michael Lynche.

So, who stepped up his/her game in the face of such pressure? Let's find out...

  1. Lee DeWyze made the perfect song choice in "A Little Less Conversation." It's one of Elvis' most catchy hits and, as the judges keep telling us, Lee has one of the best radio voices in the competition. An ideal combo.
  2. Crystal Bowersox is almost a bore at this point. Not really, of course, but her rendition of "Saved" was just the latest example of why she's guaranteed to finish in the top three and will likely win it all.
  3. Michael Lynche didn't make Simon and company regret saving him. He sat on the stage, strummed his guitar and did what he does best: connect with the audience.
  4. Tim Urban earned raves for the second consecutive week. Another great song choice here, as viewers suddenly Can't Help Falling in Love with the cute crooner.
  5. Casey James might be playing it too safe. His performances are always similar, which isn't a bad thing - but also make it impossible to ever award him the top spot.
  6. Aaron Kelly could be in danger of elimination, as nothing stood out about his "Blue Suede Shoes." No 'wow' moment, as Simon likes to say.
  7. Siobhan Magnus falls to the lowest spot we've ever had her at with her confusing arrangement on "Suspicious Minds." Not one of Elvis' better known singles, so we admire the risk she took. But it didn't pay off for a chance.
  8. Think Katie Stevens was venting to the judges with her choice of "Baby What You Want Me To Do?"
  9. Andrew Garcia sang "Hound Dog." He seems very nice, but will hopefully be singing it again tonight after he gets voted out.

This is an amazing video.

While Glee returned to Fox last night with a new episode, the Internet is buzzing today over the song that aired after the installment itself concluded.

Featuring Jane Lynch as her character of Sue Sylvester, and along with a couple other Glee cast members, the show actually put together a shot-for-shot recreation of Madonna's "Vogue" music video.

It's elaborate, it's entertaining and it's incredible that a TV show went to this length in order to promote an upcoming episode (tune in next week for a lot more of the Material Girl!).

Seriously, if this doesn't make you a Glee fan, nothing will. Sit back and watch the video below.

If there was one thing Steven Seagal was good at as an actor - and, at most, there was only one thing - it was taking on injustices and righting wrongs.

According to Seagal's lawyer, that's exactly what his mission is when it comes to Kayden Nguyen. The model has sued Seagal for sexual harassment, claiming he fondled her breasts and ordered her to serve as his sex toy.

In a statement, attorney Marty Singer refers to Nguyen (pictured) as a "disgruntled" former employee who was fired for using illegal narcotics and adds: "[I am] extremely confident this merit-less lawsuit will be dismissed.”

Singer continued:

"Ms. Nguyen filed her lawsuit without even notifying Steven Seagal or his representatives of her alleged claims because she was aware that claims could be asserted against her based on her own conduct. Her lawsuit is nothing more than a preemptive strike by a disgruntled ex-employee.”

We have no idea what took place, of course, but Nguyen actually appeared on a segment of Tyra Banks' talk show in 2009 and said: "I can use my sex appeal to get any girl that I want and trick any guy to getting what I want."

She came close to showing it all off on the American Idol stage last May, donning a bikini on the season eight finale.

But Kara DioGuardi takes things one step further in the latest issue of Allure. Actually, two steps: the bottom and the top. She appears totally naked in the magazine.

"This shoot was less about beauty than about taking a risk and showing people a side of me they never have seen," the American Idol judge said, looking back on her days of battling an eating disorder:

"Back then I was a size 6 or 8; now I'm more like a size 2. Food is not what I use to anesthetize myself anymore."

DioGuardi isn't the only celebrity to bare it all for Allure. Wanna see an Entourage hottie and a Grey's Anatomy beauty in the buff? Read on.

The stars came out in New York City last night, as one of the country's leading publications celebrated a major milestone.

No, not The National Enquirer. Not Star Magazine, either.

HA! You wish, OK! Weekly.

Instead, it was the honorable Good Housekeeping that brought out such names as Brooke Shields, Meryl Streep and Jessica Simpson for its 125th anniversary event. The latter is pictured immediately below, showing off abysmal posture:

This may be hard to believe, but there was a time when Jim Carrey was known as one of the most popular actors on the planet. Remember Ace Ventura, anyone?

But the funny man hasn't had a box office success in years. Which was fine when he was seemingly busy and content with Jenny McCarthy.

Carrey On, Jim

Ever since that pair broke-up, though, Carrey has unleashed a stream of Tweets that has fans concerned: might the actor have fallen off the deep end? For example, he recently referenced his character in The Truman Show and wrote:

"I have freed Truman at long last! I am grateful for my avatar's many yrs of dedicated service, but no one has ever won the Tour De France while back peddling... so I killed him."

Well, okay then. At least Carrey isn't still placing some blame on Elin Woods for her husband's infidelity.

Carrey acknowledges that "some folks out there are worried that I stay up too late," but he insists: "This is no breakdown! It's a breakthrough! And if you'll just loosen these straps, I'll show you the difference!"

Sorry, Jim, but we're not convinced.

With a number-one album on the charts, a successful SNL gig behind him, and a movie about his life possibly on the way, might Justin Bieber be developing a major ego?

We pose this question because the singing sensation spoke to MTV News this week and gave himself props for being embraced by the hip-hop community.

"I'm really glad they've taken a liking to me," Justin said. "Having Luda [on my song "Baby"] and having Lil Wayne give me shout me out on UStream... it's cool."

Bieber was discovered by Usher's manager and signed by Def Jam Records. He says he wants to emulate the careers of Usher and Justin Timberlake.

At the Oscars

What about other young singers, such as Miley Cyrus and The Jonas Brothers? Bieber started a possible war in the tween world by implying that those artists are nothing more than Disney-manufactured drones. Asked why he's so popular among various demographics, he replied:

"I think it's because I didn't go through the Disney route. I didn't go corny... I've been cool and collected."

Hear that, Miley, Nick, Kevin and Joe: you're corny. Would you care to respond?

He's thrown phones at people in fits of rage, and he once helped Martha Stewart murder a chicken.

But Russell Crowe is also one of the best actors of his generation, an Oscar winner and a multiple-time Best Actor nominee.

The native Australian was honored for those achievements yesterday, earning a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He posed at the event (below) with his family, wife Danielle and sons Charles and Tennyson, ages 6 and 3, respectively.

Perpetual Honor

As for his next project, Crowe will star as Robin Hood. The film opens on May 14, but he must apologize to all female fans: the handsome actor won't be donning any tights.

"They weren't invented until quite a few hundred years after when the story takes place," he said. "We start our story in 1199. Tights don't come into play until the 1600s. I do apologize to those who will be disappointed that there are no tights."

Check out a few more photos of Crowe celebrating his latest honor:

Tonight, Glee returns to Fox with its first new episode of 2010.

But fans of the musical comedy are already looking ahead to next week. That's because the April 20 installment of the show will feature nothing but Madonna singles, from "Vogue" to "4 Minutes"

The cast covers the latest issue of TV Guide and shares with the publication a few of its earliest Madonna memories. For instance:

  • Lea Michele attended Madonna’s Drowned World Tour three times and styled her hair like the Material Girl when she went to Bat Mitzvahs as a teenager.
  • Said Chris Colfer: "I was not allowed to listen to Madonna when I was younger... My mother and grandmother had all the CDs but didn’t want me to hear about sex.”
  • The newly-engaged Jane Lynch, pictured below in an iconic cone bra, recalls “sitting at a bar all drunk on Long Island ice teas watching her ‘Material Girl’ video and thinking, ‘How Ballsy.’"

Going Vogue

As for Glee spoilers involving the episode itself, fans can look forward to...

... Sue Sylvester starring in her own “Vogue” segment, which also involves Mercedes and Kurt.

... Mercedes and Kurt singing "4 Minutes," as part of the Cheerios.

... A rendition of “Like a Virgin” that focuses on three couples trying to lose their virginity.

Moreover, the show will release a CD full of these Madonna singles. It just keeps getting better, doesn't it?
