Goodbye, Nicolette Sheridan. Hello, Drea de Matteo!
While Desperate Housewives bid farewell to Sheridan's Edie last season, ABC has found quite the replacement for her:
Emmy-winning Sopranos star Drea de Matteo is joining the cast in the fall. She'll play Wisteria Lane's latest vixen.
As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, De Matteo will be a series regular. She'll portray the matriarch of a new Italian family, as casting is underway for her husband and their tightly wound son.
