Eva Longoria opens up about the end of ‘Desperate Housewives’

Eva Longoria appeared on last night’s ‘The Late Show with David Letterman’, looking absolutely stunning! The ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress revealed how hard it’s been saying goodbye to Wisteria Lane, and how she and the other cast members cried on the last day of filming.

‘Desperate Housewives’ will air the 2-hour series finale on Sunday, bringing the show to a close after 180 episodes and 8 seasons.

“They said ‘that’s a wrap’ for the last time, and that’s when the tears came,” Longoria told David Letterman Wednesday.

The waterworks were matched with gifts for the show’s crew – carry-on luggage embroidered with the phrase, ‘Take us with you on all of your journeys.’

Eva, wearing a black gown, joked with Letterman about the outcome of the final episode.

“Everybody dies,” she said. “You must watch.”

Longoria’s life has seen a number of changes since she joined “Desperate Housewives” eight years ago. International fame. Numerous awards. That whole Tony Parker thing.

Most importantly, the success has allowed her to turn the page on her fast food career. Before becoming a celebrity, Longoria worked at a Wendy’s in Corpus Christi, Texas.

“I was the fry girl, I made burgers, I did everything,” she told David Letterman Wednesday.

After working as a fry girl, Longoria appeared on “The Young and the Restless.” She also tried out for the Will Smith rom-com “Hitch.”

She didn’t get that part – it ended up going to Eva Mendes, she told Letterman.

The day after learning of the rejection, she got a call from the producers of “Desperate Housewives.” They wanted Longoria to move to Wisteria Lane, starring on the show as housewife Gabrielle Solis.

And there she’s stayed for eight seasons, enduring back-stabbing and raunch, rumors and ratings – quite the TV run for the fry girl turned sexpot celebrity.

Again, daaaaaaang! Eva looks hot here!

Sheridan sues ‘Housewives’ creator for assault

As first reported by TMZ.com, former “Desperate Housewives” actress Nicollette Sheridan is suing series creator Marc Cherry on charges of assault and battery, gender violence, wrongful termination, and “intentional infliction of emotional distress.”

In the suit, obtained by EW, Sheridan alleges that Cherry created a “hostile work environment,” regularly “demeaning” writers and staff, and behaving in a “dismissive, demeaning, and unprofessional manner” towards her both on and off set.

She claims that on September 24, 2008, after she questioned something in the script, Cherry took her aside and “forcefully hit her with his hand across her face and head.” Although Sheridan immediately complained to ABC, she claims no action was taken.

The legal papers paint Cherry as someone who became hostile to those who “questioned his authority,” and Sheridan claims her complaints led directly to her termination. What’s more, the suit says, Cherry reportedly told third parties that “he hoped Sheridan would be distraught as a result of the termination.”

In a separate incident cited by way of example, Cherry allegedly once responded to “Housewives” co-star Teri Hatcher’s complaints to the network by saying, “I hope Teri Hatcher gets hit by a car and dies.”

Sheridan is seeking $20 million.

Two former regulars returning to Desperate Housewives

Desperate Housewives

In May’s “Desperate Housewives” season finale, we saw a lot happen to Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher), including a near-death experience with her son.

After Susan’s ex, Mike (James Denton), rushed to their rescue, the two shared a passionate kiss. That kiss was followed by a wedding scene, in which Mike was marrying a veiled bride… but was the bride Susan? Or was it his fiancee, Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany)?

We won’t find out for sure until this fall, but sources tell me September’s “Desperate Housewives” premiere is set to feature a Susan Mayer wedding… or the preparations for one at least (who knows if she’ll actually go through with the “I do”s).

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Susan wasn’t the lady Mike married in the season finale. As every “Desperate” fan knows, the show is no stranger to flashbacks, divorces or second chances. But I’m beginning to think the tide turned in Katherine’s favor. Just my gut feeling.

Either way, there’s good news for Susan on the horizon. Rumor has it, daughter Julie (Andrea Bowen), who was mostly M.I.A. last season when “DH” jumped forward five years and sent her off to college, will return to Wisteria Lane full time come fall.

Julie’s father, Susan’s ex Karl (Richard Burgi), who hooked up with Bree Hodge (Marcia Cross) in the season finale will supposedly be showing up on a regular basis as well.

Thoughts?
