Exclusive: 'Desperate Housewives' recruits 'Sopranos' vet Drea de
Matteo
by Michael Ausiello

 Afraid Desperate Housewives would lose its edge without Nicolette
Sheridan's Edie around? You can fuhgettaboutit.

Emmy-winning Sopranos heroine Drea de Matteo is joining the cast as
Wisteria Lane's newest vixenish housewife, sources confirm to me
exclusively.

De Matteo, who will be a series regular, will play the matriarch of a
new Italian family. Casting is underway for her landscape designer
husband and their tightly wound son.

Thoughts? IMHO, this is the second coolest piece of casting of the
2009-10 season (behind Katee Sackhoff joining 24, natch). Agree?
