Vanessa Williams – aka Ugly Betty’s arch villainess Wilhelmina Slater – is moving into Wisteria Lane to join the other Desperate Housewives. And set to catch her eye? Mr Megan Fox, 90210’s Brian Austin Green. (The couple married in Hawaii in June.)
Brian is to play a 'hunky contractor' – easy money on plenty of shirtless scenes then. We can’t wait – last time we saw Megan’s new hubbie shirtless was on teen sci-fi hit Smallville!
But Vanessa is set to have a love rival on the show, as Brian also catches the eye of Bree Van de Camp, played by Marcia Cross.
'I’m still blushing – I’m not really acting yet,' says Marcia. 'Just yesterday in the scene he grabbed my hand to pull me somewhere and as Bree – just coming into my physical space sets her atwitter. I was atwitter, too. Don’t tell him I said that!'
