Drea de Matteo: A New Series Regular on Desperate Housewives

at . Comments

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.

This piece of casting news wraps up an exciting day, as we earlier reported that Jana Kramer was joining the cast of One Tree Hill and Trevor Donovan was coming aboard 90210.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.


There is a place in St. Timothy's church
where sinners go to confess their sins. And once they're done,they expect absolution. But the truth is, not all confessions are worthy of such forgiveness. Most who unveil hidden agendas deserve the condemnation they receive. Most who disclose vengeful motives merit the punishment that follows. Only the truly repentant have any right
at all to expect a second chance... Which is why it's best to think twice before you confess... Especially if you don't know what it is you're confessing to.
