at . Comments

It's been confirmed: Vanessa Williams is coming to Wisteria Lane.

We can't wait for this great actress to arrive on Desperate Housewives in the fall. Especially now that we know a lot more about the character she'll portray.

Our thanks to TV Guide Magazine, which was the source for the following tidbits regarding Renee Filmore-Jones:

  • She's a former collegiate rival of Lynette's.
  • She's been married for years to the same hunk.
  • They have no children.
  • Also, you won't believe this, but Renee will have a secret!

Look for Williams to show up on Wisteria Lane early in the fall. You can read more about season seven storylines RIGHT NOW.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

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


(after Andrew tells her he hates her) The opposite of love isn't hate. It's indifference. And if you hate me, that means you still care, and we're still connected and I still have a chance to set you right.
