More sibling get-to-gethers? Looks like Andrea will be joining Jamie Denton on Desperate Housewives this season.

Less Than Perfect star Andrea Parker has been tapped to replace Friends alum Jessica Hecht in the final season of Desperate Housewives, TVLine.com reports.

Hecht was originally cast to play the new girlfriend of Tom Scavo (Doug Savant), whose marriage with Lynette (Felicity Huffman) fell apart in Season 7. Talks between Hecht and the ABC series reportedly fell apart, so Parker will step in.

Parker, who will next appear in USA’s Common Law, is one of many additions to the final season, including and V‘s Charles Mesure and Protector star Miguel Ferrer.

Desperate Housewives returns Sunday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c on ABC.

What is that I read? Parker is getting a show on USA? That is what it said. I’ll keep you posted!

Retail industry sources have leaked the word to us that Lionsgate Entertainment, as part of their licensing pact with ABC/Disney, will soon be releasing Less Than Perfect - Season 1 on DVD!

This 2002 sitcom was created by Terri Minsky (Sherri, Lizzie McGuire), and starred Sara Rue (Eastwick, Popular). Other cast during the show's first season (out of four) included Andy Dick (NewsRadio), Zachary Levi (Chuck), Andrea Parker (The Pretender), Sherri Shepherd (Sherri) and Eric Roberts (who played "The Master" in Fox's 1996 Doctor Who TV-movie).

Not much is known about the DVD release yet, but what we are told is that it will be a 4-disc set and is currently planned to hit the streets on September 14th. That could be subject to change, though, so stay tuned for updated!
