Marc Cherry Previews New Desperate Housewives Characters, Season

at . Comments

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

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


So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.
