One of the stars of ABC’s "Desperate Housewives" is being sued, along with ABC Studios, ISBE Productions and The Walt Disney Co., reports TheWrap.
Jennifer Glassman, a former executive with Teri Hatcher’s ISBE Productions, accuses Hatcher in court documents of backing out on a 2006 deal that would have made them business partners, according to the article.
Glassman, who was working as a Paradigm Talent Agency executive, resigned from that position to work for Hatcher. Glassman’s documents describe the experience in a negative light, saying Hatcher had “mood swings and unusual requests." Glassman declared that she was “wrongfully terminated” in late February 2010.
The fly in the ointment for Glassman, however, may be that her deal with Hatcher was never created as an equal partnership. Glassman reportedly signed an agreement as an "at will" employee, giving Hatcher the latitude to fire her at will.
