Vanessa’s Coming Back!

Last night’s series finale of ABC’s Desperate Housewives had us saying goodbye to the women of Wisteria Lane, including Vanessa Williams!And while we’ll miss all the drama (and laughter) Vanessa’s character Renee brought us each week, we’re thrilled to learn this sister is still going strong, finding another place to call home for the upcoming television season.

In ABC’s new show 666 Park Ave., slated to debut this fall, Vanessa will play the role of Olivia Doran, who’s described as the coldly beautiful and sophisticated wife of the show’s villain, played by Terry O’Quinn. We can’t wait to see all the drama unfold, and we’re excitedly awaiting her next mane moves. For now, here’s what Vanessa has to say about her gorgeous tresses…

“I’ve been wearing wigs consistently for years to shield my hair from all the damage,” reveals the actress. “Plus, they allow me to play with length, color and texture. My hair is cut a little below my shoulder and there are a few layers in it. I don’t do any crazy styles or cuts because this just works for me.”
