Personally, I don't think Nicolette is replaceable. Edie was a great character, and despite the rumored personal conflicts between Nicolette and the show's creator, it was just plain stupid to kill her off.Ugly Betty's Vanessa Williams Joins Desperate Housewives Cast

Vanessa Williams — who played diva Wilhelmina Slater on Ugly Betty — will be moving onto Wisteria Lane as a regular on next season's Desperate Housewives, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
Details of her role have not been released, although producers have been searching for a saucy replacement for Nicollette Sheridan since she left the series in Season 5.
You can still catch Williams' Wilhelmina in encore presentations of Ugly Betty on Saturdays at 7/6c on TV Guide Network.
But if they have to have another Edie-like character, I think they made a good choice.
