Drea De Matteo joins 'Desperate Housewives'

Drea "Desperate Housewives" has recruited its sixth housewife.

With Nicolette Sheridan's Edie Britt dead for good, ABC confirms that producers have signed Emmy-winning "Sopranos" actress Drea De Matteo to join the cast as Wisteria Lane's newest housewife.

Michael Ausiello reports that Matteo will play "the matriarch of a new Italian family." A source tells him casting is also underway for "her landscape designer husband and their tightly wound son."
