I don’t know about you guys, but I just found a new reason to love Wisteria Lane.

Drea de Matteo is joining the cast of ‘Desperate Housewives‘–as a series regular no less–according to EW.

‘The Sopranos’ star will play…the matriarch of a new Italian family that also includes an as-yet-uncast landscaper husband and a tightly wound son.

With a hardcore new vixen on the block, you’ll barely notice Edie is gone!

It’s been a good month for the Emmy-winning actress.

On June 11th, de Matteo accepted a marriage proposal on stage from her rocker boyfriend Shooter Jennings during a concert. The couple has a two-year-old daughter named Alabama Gypsy Rose.
