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

Yes, life is a journey, one that is much better travelled with a companion by our side. Of course, that companion can be just about anyone... a neighbor on the other side of the street... or the man on the other side of the bed. The companion can be a mother with good intentions... or a child who's up to no good. Still, despite our best intentions, some of us will lose our companions along the way. And then the journey becomes unbearable. You see, human beings are designed for many things, but loneliness isn't one of them.

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