Michael Bolton is glad the Hollywood writers strike has brought production on Desperate Housewives to a halt - because he gets to spend more time with the show's star, fiancee Nicollette Sheridan. The hit TV show is just one of many productions hit hard by the Writers Guild of America strike, after union members began picketing in a row over royalties in early November (07). But Bolton is happy for Sheridan's unexpected break - because it means she can join the singer on his worldwide tour. He tells U.S. chatshow host Larry King, "We're doing great. She's working - minus the strike, which is... we hate the strike happening, but it is allowing her to travel with me. And we've just been to Europe and just gotten back to New York."
