The California Supreme Court has declined to review Nicollette Sheridan's lawsuit over the scrapping of her role on Desperate Housewives.

The state's high court in Los Angeles said it would deny an appeal by the actress in her wrongful termination case against the ABC network and Touchstone Television.

Nicollette said she was fired because she claimed she was hit in the head by series creator Marc Cherry.

ABC lawyers claimed her contract simply was not renewed.

In March, jurors were deadlocked after a two-week trial. An appeals court found in August that Nicollette was not entitled to a new trial, but should be allowed to file an amended lawsuit claiming she was retaliated against because she complained about her boss.

Desperate Housewives concluded its eight-season run this year.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
