Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman is finding Nicollette Sheridan's ongoing wrongful termination trial "hard" and wishes "it wasn't happening".
Huffman's former co-star Sheridan filed a lawsuit against show creator Marc Cherry in 2010, alleging he slapped her in the face in 2008 during a discussion about a script, and then killed off her character when she complained to producers.
The trial got underway in Los Angeles last week (29Feb12), with Sheridan breaking down in tears on the first day, and Cherry claiming his 'slap' was merely used to demonstrate a scene to his former star.
Huffman is set to be called as a witness for the defence, and although she admits hearing news of the trial is tough, the Housewives stars are not letting it affect them as they film their final scenes for the hit TV show.
She tells E! Online, "It's been hard. I wish it wasn't happening... It's too bad, but, I have to say, it's not really influencing what we do on set. We're all still working and (doing) OK."
