Vanessa Williams Joins "Desperate Housewives!" Woo Hoo!

Pin It

opening night performance of the Broadway revival of 'Promises, Promises' New York City

ABC has announced that "Ugly Betty" alum, the fabulous Vanessa Williams will be joining the ladies on Wisteria Lane this fall.  That's right, "Desperate Housewives" is gonna get a little color and a whole lotta attitude if Williams brings even a little of "Ugly Betty's" Wilhelmina Slater with her.

From the ABC press release:

Fresh off her stint on Broadway’s “Sondheim on Sondheim” and the critically-acclaimed series “Ugly Betty,” Williams will play a housewife who’s sure to shake things up in the neighborhood and wreak havoc in the lives of the women of Wisteria Lane.

Marc Cherry, my man, this is a brilliant casting move.  Not only does ABC get to hold on to one of its major talents, but "Desperate Housewives" will get a sexy diva to rival all sexy divas.  Not to mention, Williams can act.

This makes me a little less upset about the loss of "Ugly Betty."

Bravo!
