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.
