Teri Hatcher Sued by Cosmetics Company

Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher is being sued for millions, by cosmetics company Hydroderm, who says the actress is in breach of her contract with them. According to papers obtained by Access Hollywood, an attorney for the company says Teri had an exclusive endorsement deal with Hydroderm since 2005, when she began promoting their cosmetic and anti-aging products. The company claims the deal stated that Teri would not use "among other things, her name, voice, autograph, image or likeness to, among other things, promote, endorse, market or advertise skin care products manufactured or marketed by Hydroderm's competitors." They say Teri broke her end of the deal when she endorsed a lip-plumping product produced by City Cosmetics. The lawsuit states the City product is in "direct competition" with Hydroderm's lip enhancer. The cosmetics company is suing for $2,806,952 -- that's a lot of lip plumper.
