Vanessa Williams Moves In to Wisteria Lane

Marc Cherry confirms that the 'Ugly Betty' alumna will be a series regular of 'Desperate Housewives' season 7 but she won't be the big mystery.

Vanessa Williams sticks to ABC, switching show to "Desperate Housewives". The former cast of now-canceled "Ugly Betty" will not only do a guest starring appearance on the drama show but will be part of the series regulars next season.

Creator Marc Chery shared to TV Guide magazine, "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." However, Vanessa won't be the biggest piece of pie in next season's storyline. Marc said, "I think our mystery is going to involve Paul Young [returning cast member Mark Moses]."

What kind of role Vanessa would tackle is not specifically mentioned but she would play "wicked new housewife". Marc said to EW previously that he was creating a role much like Nicollette Sheridan's Edie Britt. The producer is also still looking for an actress to play Paul's new wife.
