Reggie Austin Is a DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Husband

Reggie Austin

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES has given its newest housewife a husband. TV Guide reports that Reggie Austin (Life Unexpected, The Starter Wife) will join the long-running ABC series as Doug, spouse to Vanessa Williams’ Renee Perry.

Doug is a New York baseball star whose relationship with Renee is rocky at best. Renee is already said to be involved in a love triangle with Bree (Marcia Cross) Bree’s young handyman (Brian Austin Green), so Doug’s visit to Wisteria Lane should only further complicate matters. Austin’s first appearance will be in the fifth episode.

Desperate Housewives returns to ABC for its seventh season on Sunday September 26 at 9pm/7 central. You can find all of the fall premiere dates and times here.
