Cosmetics firm sues Teri Hatcher for $2.4 million

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Teri Hatcher is being told to pucker up and pay $2.4 million to a skin-care products company that says she promoted the wrong lip gloss.

Hydroderm's lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, claims that a 2005 agreement with ISBE Productions, Hatcher's production company, stipulated the star of ABC's "Desperate Housewives" wouldn't endorse other competing products as part of a $2.4 million endorsement deal.

According to the lawsuit, the company learned last summer that Hatcher was also promoting CityLips, a lip plumper made by City Cosmetics that competes with Hydroderm's lip plumper, called Volumizing Lip Serum.

Hatcher, 42, appeared in promotional materials for CityLips, said she was a "fan" of the product, credited it with "helping her appear beautiful at an awards event," and gave CityLips gift bags to guests at her birthday party.

Geeze! That's a pretty steep price to pay just for liking 2 different kinds of lip gloss. I guess when you are a celebrity, you have to be extra careful about what you say and wear each day.
