Vanessa williams And to think Marc Cherry didn't have anything up his sleeve, he's spicing things up on Wisteria Lane by bringing in the queen of mean, Wilhelmina Slater.

A rep for ABC confirms that Vanessa Williams has joined the cast of "Desperate Housewives" as a series regular when it returns for its seventh season.

According to TV Guide Magazine Williams' character -- who I'm sure will be fierce, fabulous and wickedly evil -- will be linked to Paul Young (Mark Moses), who in the final scenes of the finale moved into Mike's and Susan's house.

Cherry told TV Guide, "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." 

My DVR thanks you in advance, Cherry & Co. -- this is the perfect way to make up for ... well, you already know.
