'Desperate Housewives' exclusive: Searching for a new 'Edie'

Nicollette-Sheridan-Desperate-Housewives-320.jpgWe know many of you " Desperate Housewives" fans have missed the lovable trampy-ness of Nicollette Sheridan's Edie Britt character on Wisteria Lane.

If you do, we have great news: The show's producers miss her energy, too.

Executive producer Bob Daily told Zap2it exclusively that the show is currently searching for a new "Edie" type to kick up dust in Fairview.

"We agree that [Edie] was a great person to have on The Lane," Daily says. "The sort of vixen troublemaker. That's a great person to have on a television show."

For now, the new vixen will stir up trouble short term this year and the producers are considering making the character a recurring part of next season.

So, what kind of actress are they looking for? Daily says she'll definitely not be a "Nicollette clone."

"I think Nicollette was so great as that sort of blonde bombshell," Daily explains. "I think we'd probably not go in that direction again just because we've had that."

Who do you think could fill Edie's high heel shoes?
