Kelly Monaco May Be on 'Housewives'

Kelly Monaco (search), the surprise winner of "Dancing with the Stars" (search), could be waltzing over to a role on ABC stablemate "Desperate Housewives."

"I thought she did an amazing job dancing on that big ['Dancing'] finale," "Housewives" creator Marc Cherry told "Access Hollywood."

"I think she's great," Cherry said. "I haven't started to think of how to fit her into Wisteria Lane, but she's awfully talented."

"AH" co-host Billy Bush then asked Cherry if he would be "out of his mind" to assume Monaco would appear on "Housewives."

"You would not be out of your mind," Cherry replied.

The casting of Monaco would be easy, considering she stars on "General Hospital" — which, like "Housewives," airs on ABC.

When Monaco was asked by "AH" about appearing on "Housewives," she didn't exactly deny the rumor.

"We'll see," she said. "I can't say anything. I'm sworn to secrecy."

Monaco beat out former "Seinfeld" co-star John O'Hurley (search) for the "Dancing with the Stars" crown.

The hit summer series paired celebrities with dancing pros, who taught the stars two dances a week before they performed live, with one "couple" voted off the show each week.

The show's been renewed for a second season, which will air early next year.

"Housewives" was last season's breakout hit, telling the (often sordid) tales of the women of Wisteria Lane: Gabrielle (Eva Longoria), Susan (Teri Hatcher), Bree (Marcia Cross), Lynette (Felicity Huffman) and Edie (Nicollette Sheridan).
