According to McDonough, Edie has no idea of her husband’s shady past: “Dave has revenge on his mind, which you’ll see in the first episode.” [Marc] Cherry won’t say who Dave is out to get, or why. But, he reveals, “Dave is a low rent Tony Robiins who comes to Wisteria Lane very determined to be everyone’s best friend. And we don’t know if he married Edie just to move to the Lane.” […] “On Housewives, I make Edie realize through positive thinking that she doesn’t need to be so cutting all the time[,” reveals McDonough.] Dave will also bring music to Wisteria Lane as he and Tom Scavo form what McDonough calls a “Desperate Houseguys rock band” in Lynette’s garage. “I’m the drummer,” says McDonough, who’s been taking lessons for a month. “Orson plays the keyboard, Tom plays the bass, and Mike sings and plays lead guitar.” Source: TV Guide
