Desperate Housewives Episode Recap: "Remember Paul?"

Desperate Housewives is back for a seventh season, folks, and we've got ourselves a new Housewife. Vanessa Williams has joined the party, and she has a bit of a mean streak. Former neighbor Paul Young has returned, a free man, and surprisingly prison hasn't made him any less creepy... or treacherous. Susan is Fairview's own Donna Summer — she works hard for the money. Bree's new contractor has more than paint samples on his mind. Gaby and Carlos have dueling secrets. And Lynette, after giving birth to a basketball team, is too tired to defend her choices.

Desperate Housewives: Vanessa Williams Is the "New Gunslinger in Town"

On the dusty expanse of suburbia that is Wisteria Lane, Vanessa Williams is ready to duel at 40 paces.

Desperate Housewives has always relied on a fun, trouble-making foil to shake up the staid suburban lives of the women of Wisteria Lane — think Edie, Mrs. Huber, Karl, may they all rest in peace. This season, ABC has employed a Wild West theme to announce the arrival of Renee Perry (Williams), who'll try on a (very chic) black hat. Executive producer Bob Daily introduces us to Renee, and tells us what all the other ladies — and at least one familiar gentleman — will deal with this season.

I am so drunk. I am so drunk, I can hardly control my redheaded tongue. Meredith from The Office here. There's no telling what I'll say about Jim and Pam and the rest of the Office dirt. God help the bartender. He's like a priest. He hears things in the strictest of confidence in my drunken stupor. I can't tell you the bar or the bartender in case he has a weak moment. I am not waiting for the black coffee to kick in.OK, here goes. This is the real story. Jim and Pam are never going to get together... in this week's episode, "Safety Training." Don't repeat that. You seem nice enough. You won't tell anyone that I said that, will you? It's hot in here. I better open a window. I am drunk because I miss everyone. We just stopped working two weeks ago. Why am I drunk? That's why I am drunk. Is anybody listening to ol' Mer? Is anybody else feeling hot? I hope that's dried oatmeal on my sweater. I am drunk.But who am I trying to kid?
