"Desperate Housewives": Meet the New Neighbors

"Desperate Housewives": Meet the New Neighbors


In true "Desperate Housewives" fashion, the newest family to move to Wisteria Lane is dripping with mystery. Actors Nathan Fillion, Dana Delaney and Lyndsy Fonseca recently chatted with TV Guide about their family, one of two new households on the lane this year. Here's what we learned about their characters:

  • Katherine Mayfair, Delaney's character, used to live on Wisteria Lane with her daughter, Dylan (Fonseca), and an aunt, but she moved away 12 years ago under — you guessed it — mysterious circumstances. When she returns, she's with her new husband, Adam (Fillion), a gynecologist with an "unsavory" secret in his professional life.
  • A perfectionist and control freak, Katherine is a rival to Bree; apparently there will literally be a throwdown over lemon meringue pie.
  • Dylan was once friends with Julie Mayer, but she remembers nothing from that time, and the memory loss leads people to suspect something dark in her past; as a teenager, she's kept on a strict schedule, "almost like a dog."

"Desperate Housewives" is also the latest show to get the music video treatment from ABC, with glam scenes of the original five housewives set to the new Jennifer Lopez song "Mile in These Shoes."
