Wisteria Lane has a new resident!

Vanessa Williams is moving in on Desperate Housewives and in an exclusive photo, she's seen on the set with show creator Marc Cherry.

"It’s another challenge," Williams, who played the delightfully wicked Wilhelmina on Ugly Betty, told PEOPLE recently. "It's another opportunity for me to put on the clothing of somebody new and Marc Cherry and the team has guaranteed it’s a character worth watching so I’m excited to bring it to life."

As for her first day on the job, Williams reported, "I arrived and did my arrival and I hope it’s funny and I hope I fit in with the girls because they have embraced me with open arms and the show is a well oiled machine. They are in their seventh season and it’s a wonderful group of gals and everyone was so nice to me."

Hopefully, her character won't return the favor!
