Big spoiler slips out at ‘Housewives’ trial

Producer reveals key plot point from upcoming seg

Spoiler alert!

The biggest revelation to come out of former “Desperate Housewives” actress Nicollette Sheridan’s wrongful termination trial on Thursday was that she won’t be the only primary character killed off from the show.

Under questioning from one of Sheridan’s lawyers, one of the show’s executive producers George Perkins, revealed that James Denton’s character Mike would be killed off in Sunday’s episode.

When he blurted it out, there was laughter in the courtroom.

“Should we quarantine the press?” Adam Levin, Marc Cherry’s attorney, asked half jokingly.

“I can’t issue those” orders, Judge Elizabeth Allen White responded.

The revelation essentially ruins of the element of surprise, but it actually could bolster Cherry’s case that the killing off of even primary characters was not out of the question. Sheridan sued Cherry and Touchstone television, claiming that her character was killed off from the show in retaliation for complaining about a confrontation with Cherry.

At a break in the proceedings, Cherry just shrugged at the idea that a secret was blown in open court.

Denton testified earlier in the day that he was “always” concerned his character would be killed off.
