DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Nicollette Sheridan has been accused of taking cocaine while at school - a report the star vehemently denies.

JENNIFER YOUNG, a former pal of the blonde actress and daughter of late screen legend Gig Young, claims cocaine is part of everyday life in glitzy Hollywood, and she and Sheridan, 41, used to snort the drug together after classes.

Young says, "If you were young and gorgeous in Hollywood you couldn't escape coke. The first time Nicollette and I got high was after school."

However, Sheridan slammed the claim as "absolutely untrue".
