Desperate Housewives Rumor of the Day: Vanessa Williams to Join Cast?!?

by at . Comments

A day after Desperate Housewives concluded its most recent season, there's plenty of casting news to report:

  • Drea de Matteo is out.
  • So is Dana Delany, as her new ABC series, Body of Evidence, has been picked up.
  • Mark Moses is back.

Producer Bob Daily tells Zap2It that the series isn't done adding her cast members, though.

"We haven't really figured out what that person is," he said. "What we're looking for is sort of a provocateur, a muckraker. We've had a couple different people filling that role over the years. When Dana Delany joined, her function was partially to sort of stir things up a little bit. I think that's really what we're looking for."

Rumors, meanwhile, actually point to Vanessa Williams taking on a role next season. The former, beloved Ugly Betty star is looking for a job, after all.

"We love Vanessa Williams and I knew her name has been floated," said Daily. "If she were available, we would certainly be interested in talking to her."

Could you see Williams moving onto The Lane? Sound like an ideal casting scenario to us!

Desperate Housewives Quotes

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

(narrating) Family. There is nothing more important. They're the ones who show up when we are in trouble. The ones who push us to succeed. The ones who help keep our secrets. But what of those who have no family to rely on? What happens to those poor souls who have no loved ones to help them in their hour of need? Well, most learn to walk life's road by themselves. But a sad few of us, simply stop trying.
