Vanessa Williams has joined the cast of Desperate Housewives. I waited a few episodes to form an opinion of her new character Renee Perry.
Now that I have seen a few episodes, I absolutely hate the Renee Perry character. She is shallow, much too shallow. Her character lacks any sense of mystery, and I can always predict what Renee will do next.
All of the other characters on Desperate Housewives have something secretive and special about them. What is there to learn about Vanessa Williams character Renee? I can’t think of one story line that would be interesting to watch.
Her friendemy relationship with Lynette Scavo is boring and predictable. I never feel the chemistry, that real friendemies have.
It seems that Renee Perry has been added to Wisteria Lane just to give the other woman on Wisteria Lane something to do. Lynette now has someone to fight with, and Bree is forced to be more adventurous with men and life and she fights Renee over the hot new man on Wisteria Lane (played by Brian Austin).
I hope that Renee Perry gets more interesting fast, or that we focus on more interesting characters. Renee needs a secret, and she needs more depth.
