There always seems to be available real estate on Wisteria Lane for new neighbors moving in from other TV neighborhoods: Beverly Hills, 90210’s Brian Austin Green will join the Desperate Housewives cast as a working class contractor who catches the eye of both Bree (Marcia Cross) and another newbie, Ugly Betty’s Vanessa Williams. And series creator Marc Cherry also hopes to save some property for his longtime friend Betty White.
"Marcia will have a new love interest in the form of Brian Austin Green," Cherry said at a Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "We wanted Bree to be involved with a hunky blue collar contractor and take her out of her refined and educated world – someone who's a bit younger and someone who would be challenging to Bree. We read the first script of the season and I introduced Brian as Marcia's new love interest and then I said, 'You're welcome, Marcia!' and Marcia blushed."

Television and Broadway actress Dixie Carter passed away Saturday morning at the age of 70.
"This has been a terrible blow to our family," her husband, actor Hal Holbrook, said in a statement. "We would appreciate everyone understanding that this is a private family tragedy."
Carter died from complications arising from endometrial cancer, publicist Steve Rohr tells PEOPLE.
Best known for her role as interior designer Julia Sugarbaker in Designing Women, the Tennessee native earned an Emmy nomination in 2007 for her guest appearance on Desperate Housewives.
Her Broadway credits include a stint in Thoroughly Modern Millie in 2004.
Carter and Holbrook, who married in 1984, appeared together last year in That Evening Sun, an independent film based on a short story by author William Gay.
In addition to her husband, Carter is survived by two daughters from a previous marriage.

Eva Longoria Parker won't take sides in the legal spat between Nicollette Sheridan and Marc Cherry, but she will say this: that the Desperate Housewives set is a healthy work environment.
"The only thing I can say is we don't have a hostile set, and Marc's really nice, and Nicollette's a nice girl, too," Longoria Parker says in an interview set to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Sheridan, 46, who played Edie Britt on the show, filed court papers this week saying she was fired after complaining that Cherry, the show's creator, had hit her in the face on set.

Nicollette Sheridan won't be surprised if the legal response against her is, well, desperate.
After filing a lawsuit Monday alleging she was assaulted and then was wrongly fired from ABC's Desperate Housewives, her lawyer alleges show creator Marc Cherry was abusive on the set – and the attorney anticipates more of the same now.
"We expect the case to be hard fought, and it will not be a surprise if ABC and Mr. Cherry try to depict Nicollette to be something other than a team player and long-standing industry professional," says attorney Mark Baute.
Sheridan, 46, is suing for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination. She says that Cherry hit her in the face when she questioned a script and that she was then killed off the show last year when she complained.

It's a lawsuit worthy of a juicy Desperate Housewives storyline.
Nicollette Sheridan alleges the show's creator hit her in the face on the set and that she was then fired in retaliation for complaining about him, "resulting in her losing millions in future earnings," says the suit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Sheridan, whose character was killed off the show last year, is suing for $20 million, alleging assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination. She claims series creator Marc Cherry created a hostile work environment, "behaving in an extremely abusive and aggressive manner."
Sheridan, a Golden Globe nominee who played sexy Realtor Edie Britt, claims that Cherry directed his abuse at other cast and crew members, even at star Teri Hatcher after she went above his head to ABC executives.
