OK, so apparently it's the fourth time that's the charm. Although Dana Delany turned down the role of Desperate Housewives' Bree three times back when the prime-time soap was but a gleam in Marc Cherry's eye, she may finally plant roots on Wisteria Lane after all.

Setside sources tell me that the China Beach Emmy winner is in advance talks to become a new series regular. And get this: Her character is the spitting image of Bree. According to the casting breakdown, Katherine is a "conservative Republican with an all-American wholesomeness and a mastery of passive-aggressiveness."

Tell me that doesn't sound like someone we know.

Unlike the new mom-to-be, however, Katherine is a former neighbor who is coming home after an absence of more than a decade, with a younger man for a husband (described as "the best-looking gynecologist in town") and a 17-year-old daughter who sounds like she could assume Andrew's mantel as the show's biggest JV troublemaker.

So how do we feel about Delany's move to Wisteria Lane? Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Thumbs sideways? Sound off below!
