Desperate Housewives is adding a new villain to Wisteria Lane. The twist? It’s an old villain!
Sources confirm to me exclusively that Mark Moses is slated to reprise his role as Mary Alice’s creepy widower, Paul, on a full-time basis next season.
The character was last seen in season 3 when Mike paid him a visit in jail, where he’s serving time for murdering poor Martha Huber. After leaving Housewives, Moses joined the cast of Mad Men as Herman “Duck” Phillips.
Earlier this year, Housewives creator Marc Cherry hinted to me that he was thinking of bringing on a new vixen to succeed Nicollette Sheridan. “We hope to add a troublemaker,” he clarified, “but I’m not so sure it’ll be a woman.” Sneaky!
Thoughts? Anxious to see what trouble Paul will stir up this time around? Sound off below!

Question: Have we seen the last of Katherine on Desperate Housewives? Ausiello: For this season, yes. But if Dana Delany’s ABC pilot, Body of Evidence, fails to earn a pickup, she’ll most likely be back in the fall. “We’d love to have her back, but obviously for her sake, I hope her pilot goes,” says exec producer Bob Daily. “Marc [Cherry] has said that she has an open invitation to return next season if it doesn’t.”
Could creator Marc Cherry be wearing thin on the “Desperate Housewives” drama? Maybe, ABC just realized that the storylines are being recycled? At any rate, Deadline.com reports that ABC is considering stepping back from its previous announcement of nine seasons to eight for the run of the show. According to the article, a couple issues are affecting ABC’s decision process:
* Cherry is already on a three-year deal with the network. If the show ends after Season 8, that would allow Cherry a year to do development on new projects. And the network really wants him to churn out another hit for them.
* The core divas Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria Parker and Marcia Cross, apparently have deals through next season. ABC Studios has reportedly approached them about extending that through a Season 9, but the women haven’t committed. Could they be considering other options?
Back in 2008, ABC announced that it had a deal in place to carry “Desperate Housewives” through Season 9, instead of Season 7 as Cherry had planned.
An ABC spokesperson declined Zap2it’s request for comment.

Image Credit: Ron Tom/ABC A valuable piece of real estate is about to open up along America’s most popular cul-de-sac — and I’m not referring to Dana Delany’s possible departure: Drea de Matteo is leaving Desperate Housewives in May. Series creator Marc Cherry, however, insists tabloid talk that the Emmy-winning Sopranos vet was fired because she wasn’t clicking with the cast is not true. “When I heard that stuff, I was stunned,” confesses Cherry. “We adore her. She is the sweetest gal in the world.” The reality is, de Matteoaccording to Cherry. “Part of the deal when we hired Drea ’s stint on Housewives was never intended to go beyond this season, was she was only interested in doing one season,get back to her life in New York.”” he explains. “She has a baby and is eager to It’s fair to say de Matteo won’t be terribly missed by Housewives fans, many of whom never warmed to her icy character, fugitive matriarch Angie Bolen. But Cherry believes that has less to do with the actress and more to do with the nature of her story line. “We shielded parts of her character because of the mystery,” he says. “As we build toward the end and we start undoing the many layers of [Angie], everyone will get how brilliant she is.”Cherry declined to reveal how Angie will exit Wisteria Lane (body bag? plane ticket?). Instead, he teases that the arrival in April of Torchwood’s John Barrowman as the man she has been on the run from will build to “an explosive finale,” during which “all the mysterious parts of her past will be revealed.”
Dana Delany is so well-regarded over at ABC that network prez Steve McPherson is inviting her to cheat on Desperate Housewives by starring in Body of Evidence, an Alphabet pilot that, if it’s picked up, would almost certainly take her away permanently from Wisteria Lane. Of course, that’s provided a deal can be made. As of now, Delany is still in talks to headline Evidence, a procedural that centers around a female medical examiner who used to work as a neurosurgeon. ABC declined to comment.
