I was so happy to learn a few weeks back that Vanessa L. Williams would be joining the prime time hit Desperate Housewives. After watching her for the past few years play bitchy Wilhelmina on my much missed Ugly Betty, I knew V would bring some extra spice to the aging suburban dramedy.
Here's the deets: Vanessa's character Renee Filmore -Jones was Lynette's college rival. She moves to Wisteria Lane, married w/ no kids, and from what I've read, time has not healed all wounds between the two ladies.
I just hate that Blair Underwood has been cast on another show. He would've been perfect as Renee's hunky husband :)
