The Scavos, Hodges, and Solises are getting some new neighbors.
The Scavos, Hodges, and Solises are getting some new neighbors. An Italian family is moving to Desperate Housewives's Wisteria Lane — led by Drea de Matteo of The Sopranos.
The Emmy-winning de Matteo, most recently seen on TV in Sons of Anarchy, will be a series regular, playing the "vixenish" new housewife. And she's not coming alone: the show is currently casting for her husband (a landscape designer) and the couple's tightly wound son.
Desperate Housewives has really shaken things up over the past couple of seasons, and I think adding a new housewife to the mix could keep the momentum going — especially since we've said goodbye to Edie. Plus, I think de Matteo's a good pick to bring some sass (and maybe some new dark secrets?) to the show. What do you think of the casting? And which housewife do you think de Matteo's character will butt heads with first?
