Drea de Matteo Joins Desperate Housewives

Drea de Matteo Moves to Wisteria Lane

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?

Is it lame that I really liked her on "Joey"?

Great addition to the cast of DH. Looking forward to watching her next season.

I don't watch Housewives but I hope this means she'll be making less and less appearances on Sons of Anarchy...nothing against her, her character just gets on my nerves.

DH is one of my favorite programs and Drea is a wonderful choice for a new housewife. She will bring a new attitude to the neighbor. Like others said, I hope they keep the family longer than one season.

Oops, I meant I hope they DON'T make the family out to be a typical mob-like family. Now my point makes more sense haha.

I could be good if they don't leave at the end of the season like most new families...

I hope they make the Italian family out to be a typical mob-like family. I feel like most Italians on television are made out to be in the mob, and I find it a little insulting.
