Julie Benz survives 'Dexter' bath, dries off on 'Desperate Housewives'

Julie Benz survived the bloodiest bubble bath in TV history on the last season of "Dexter." 

Now the actress who played Dexter's ill-fated supportive wife has dried off and and moved onto Wisteria Lane, a street that has seen its share of psycho-killers and nutcases. 

She should feel right at home in the new season of "Desperate Housewives."

Access Hollywood reports that Benz has been cast in the recurring role of Debbie, a stripper with a Masters in Education.
