Sarah Paulson, last seen on Desperate Housewives back in 2007, is returning to Wisteria Lane in her role as Lynette's loser sister, Lydia. But oh how things have changed. "Lynette always helped put the pieces back in Lydia's disastrous personal life, but she is now engaged and shows up with her new fiancé," previews executive producer Bob Daily. With Lynette newly separated from Tom, Lydia is now the one offering a shoulder to cry on. "We'll hear her say, 'Oh Lynette, I'm so sorry. What can I do to help?' The seeds of sibling rivalry are planted as the roles are reversed." TV fans may also remember Sarah from such series as Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip and Deadwood.

Beginning in CSI: Miami's fourth episode this fall (titled "Look Who's Taunting"), a twisted season-long mystery will kick off involving a sadistic psychopathic doctor with movie star looks. The CBS procedural is currently casting the role of young Dr. Bryce Wheeler, a late-twenties stud with everything going for him — a lean athletic body, a seemingly caring demeanor, an Ivy League education and a rich family inheritance coming his way. But get this: The guy has a demented, kinky side and uses his private ambulance as a torture van! Yikes!

Executive producer Bob Daily confirms to me that both will be seen dating new people.

When Renee Perry (Vanessa Williams) moved into Edie Britt's vacated home last season on Desperate Housewives, the recently single New Yorker spent a lot more time talking about sex than actually doing the deed.

Mesure moves on to Wisteria Lane as land developer ...
