There is a new face on Wisteria lane and she fits right in with the gang. Vanessa Williams, better known for her starring role on Ugly Betty has joined the cast of housewives, and she is definitely stirring things up. But first one should know a little bit more about our new housewife if you have not been watching do far.
Who is this new housewife?
Vanessa Williams who’s on screen character name is Renee Filmore-Jones, is an old college friend of Lynette (Felicity Huffman). She is from New York, married to a famous baseball payer, and is fashion savvy. Her visit to her pal Lynette becomes a permanent stay when she reveals that she is recently divorced and ends up buying a home across the street from Lynette. We know that there was a past fling between her and Lynette’s husband Tom back when they were in school that Lynette does not know about and that she is not afraid to speak her mind. While this housewife has much character, what will she bring to the show?
What does she bring to the table?
Renee; has enough spunk to spice up all of the housewives already juicy lives. However, if we had to compare her to any of them we know that she is most like Gabby. She is narcissistic, fashionable, and full of attitude. What is there not to love about her? There is one other thing about her that makes her a fine fit to Wisteria Lane, she is pretty normal. Well as normal as anyone on this street can be, but she doesn’t have some deep dark secret that could land her in jail. Most of the housewives who have joined for just a season before have murdered someone, harbored a criminal, or committed some other serious crime. Aside from having a past fling with Lynette’s husband, it seems as if Renee is just a normal crime free gal.
Is she here for good?
The question still remains is if Renee, the new housewife here to stay? We can only hope so. Katherine was on for a while and she was hardly as likable of a character. So we can only hope that Miss Renee will be here for the long run, or at least for a couple more seasons. All in all, I say the new housewife is one that everyone will enjoy and she makes Wisteria Lane a little spicier.
