Desperate Housewives Snatches Up Vanessa Williams
Things on Wisteria Lane just got a little more interesting. Fresh off her role as Wilhelmina Slater on the recently canceled Ugly Betty, Vanessa Williams has just signed on to join the cast of Desperate Housewives.
“I’m a big fan of Vanessa’s work and I’m so excited that she’ll be moving into the neighborhood next season to cause trouble in all the ladies’ lives,” says Marc Cherry to TV Guide.. But don’t expect Vanessa to be at the center of next season’s big mystery. “I think our mystery is going to involve Paul Young [returning cast member Mark Moses].”
Fans who saw the season finale that aired this past Sunday know that Paul Young has returned to the neighborhood and nothing about him says sunshine and rainbows. Word is that Paul's son Zach (Cody Kasch) will not be returning with his father, but Paul did manage to pick up a new wife.
And for those of you rejoicing at the fact that Teri Hatcher's botox filled, whiny Susan Meyer moved off the lane, simma da na. She will still be on the show, especially with Paul living in her house.
And Vanessa easily takes the cake as the hottest housewife on the lane now. Move over Gabi, there's a new diva in town.
How hilarious would it have been if Marc Cherry had worked out a deal to use Vanessa as Wilhelmina on DH?
