Making the most of a beautiful day in Malibu, Nicollette Sheridan was spotted soaking in the sun yesterday afternoon (August 2).
Joined by her boyfriend Steve Pate, the “Desperate Housewives” hottie looked lovely in a sexy white two-piece swimsuit as she splashed in the ocean and played with her dog.
Speaking of her former ABC gig, “Desperate Housewives” director/writer Marc Cherry recently quashed rumors that Sheridan was cut from the cast due to infighting.
He explained, “Edie was fantastic for the show and I do not have a negative word to say about her. Her character was actually not supposed to have as long a run in the show but she was so good in the pilot I had to keep her in. Part of my job is knowing when the end has come for any character and it was just Edie’s time. There is no animosity and there was no falling out.”
However, Nicollette sounds like she may have resented the decision. “[Killing off Edie] was a risky decision that could have devastating ramifications. When the show started it was such a different beast. It was exciting and dangerous and funny and edgy and bizarre. It started feeling a little complacent, and that was very frustrating.”
