Looks like the people over at Wisteria Lane are Desperate for some ratings.
Former Sopranos star Drea de Matteo is joining the cast of Desperate Housewives in hopes of giving the sagging show a boost in the ratings.
The actress is said to be playing the matriarch of an Italian family who just moved to the neighborhood. And casting underway for her landscape designer husband and their tightly wound son.
Should be interesting…
