Desperate Housewives - Info on Vanessa Williams' character

Vanessa Williams has inked a lucrative contract to stay within the ABC family as the newest of Wisteria Lane's Desperate Housewives. Now here are the exclusive first details about a character that couldn't be more different from Vanessa's Ugly Betty witch, Wilhelmina Slater. First off, she sounds about as desperate as any housewife who has ever lived on the Lane.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Vanessa will play Renee Filmore-Jones. She is an old college chum of Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman). They were rivals way back in the '80s, and we can certainly expect that relationship to continue in Fairview. (Oh, please give us flashbacks of these two duking it out in their dormitory!)

Renee has been married for years to a handsome, hunky man (likely an athlete) named Keith Jones (I'm so picturing NYPD Blue hunk Henry Simmons in this role, though it's yet to be cast). They have no kids, meaning Renee has spent all these years just being a housewife supporting her man. But she's reached a time in her life when she wants to do more.

Oh, one last thing: she has a secret. Who on Wisteria Lane doesn't?

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
