DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Nicollette Sheridan will become a desperate mother on next season's show when her vampish character, EDIE BRITT, welcomes her young son to Wisteria Lane.

Sheridan admits the addition of her bed-hopping character's son will make for interesting viewing in season two of the hit ABC drama.

She says, "Edie's six-year-old son will be showing up. I think it'll probably be pretty frightening."
