Marc Cherry Previews New Desperate Housewives Characters, Season

at .

Brian Austin Green and Vanessa Williams are both coming on board Desperate Housewives.

Series creator Marc Cherry spoke on both these additions this week at a panel in front of The Televisions Critics Association and confirmed that Green's character would get involved with Bree.

“We wanted Bree to be involved with a hunky blue collar contractor and take her out of her refined and educated world - someone who’s a bit younger and someone who would be challenging to Bree," he said.

Look for the actor's tattoos to be on full display, Cherry added, a conscious decision because: “I based the character of Bree on my mother, and my mother is appalled by tattoos. I love the idea of Bree being attracted to someone who has body art.’”

Of course, Bree won't be the only Wisteria Lane resident with her eyes on the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star.

Referring to her new character of Renee Perry - who arrives on the scene as a former friend of Lynette's - the actress teased:

“I hear there might be some competition between Bree and Renee going after him."

Desperate Housewives returns for season seven on September 26. Williams concluded with this spoiler regarding Perry:

"She’s coming into Lynette’s life because she’s having issues in her marriage and that’s how she ends up on Wisteria Lane. She’s looking to start a new phase of her life. She has a lot of money and she has a lot of privileges.”

This is just a wild guess, but we're also assuming: a lot of secrets.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

There is a prayer intended to give strength to people faced with circumstances they don't want to accept. The power of the prayer comes from it's insight into human nature. Because so many of us rage against the hand that life has dealt us. Because so many of us are cowardly. And afraid to stand up for what is right. Because so many of us give into despair when faced with an impossible choice. The good news for those who utter these words is that God will hear you and answer your prayer. The bad news is that sometimes the answer is no.

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