Vanessa Williams Joins 'Desperate Housewives' Cast!

Vanessa Williams is joining the cast of Desperate Housewives!

The Ugly Betty alum will be a series regular on the forthcoming series of DH, according to TV Guide Magazine.

“I’m a big fan of Vanessa‘s work and I’m so excited that she’ll be moving into the neighborhood next season to cause trouble in all the ladies’ lives,” creator Marc Cherry said.

“I think our mystery is going to involve Paul Young [returning cast member Mark Moses],” Marc added.

    I hope she plays the same fabulous villain that she did on Ugly Betty.

    What a great addition, to the series. The top, Vanessa is wearing is quite the number. Im loving the slight shoulder pads, and the cut-out at the neckline. This top speaks and demands POWER, and in this still shot you can see that’s what Vanessa’s character is all about. Props to the costumers!! The rust color possess an electrifying energy, flowing brilliantly with the design. You’d easily believe anything her character has to say simply because this fabulous top supports and exudes confidence. Only think Id change, would be to accessorize with gold, the silver dangle takes away and it’s not the same energy as the top. Instead I would have used heavy, antique gold, triangle earrings to add more punch to the ensemble and to create a better flow.
