One of the Housewives in particular – Lynette – may have an old score to settle with Williams’ character, Renee Filmore-Jones, with whom she went to college.

Felicity Huffman, who plays Lynette, says that the addition of Williams to the ensemble for Season 7 “has rejuvenated everyone. You can feel the energy in the air at the read-throughs.”
