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!

Bachelor and Bachelorette Sued For Alleged Racial Descrimination

Is The Bachelor racist?

Nathaniel Claybrooks, 39, and Christopher Johnson, 26, think so.  Both are African-American former college football players, and think so!  Claybrooks and Johnson answered an open casting call for The Bachelor in Nashville last August. According to People,  they were rushed through the audition process, while witnessing other (whiter!) applicants getting far more attention.

The lawsuit alleges that ABC “knowingly, intentionally and as a matter of corporate policy refused to cast people of color in the role of the Bachelor and Bachelorette.”

ABC responds by saying, “we have had various participants of color throughout the series’ history…as always, we continue to seek out participants of color for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

Hmmm….I’ve watched many seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and definitely noticed some whitewashing going on.  I’m all for this lawsuit diversifying the show- let’s see a Bachelor or Bachelorette of color!

Thoughts?

Ali Fedotowsky on ex-fiance Roberto Martinez: “We’re not speaking”

One of “The Bachelor” franchise’s most popular celebrities, Ali Fedotowsky, has sat down for an exclusive, tell-all interview with E!’s Chief News Correspondent Ken Baker for her first TV interview since her shocking split last November from Roberto Martinez. Revealing the truth about the break-up, her feelings about the current season of “The Bachelor,” the real-deal about the “Facebook millions” she allegedly lost by quitting her job to go on “The Bachelorette” and her plans for the future, the beautiful blonde opens up to Baker in her first sit-down television interview since her very public breakup.

On why they split:

“We were unhappy more than we were happy, and something needed to change…I didn’t want to let people down. I felt anger from my followers, fans…the pressure was to make sure we did what would make both of us happy.”

On what she hopes people will believe about her “Bachelor” relationship:

“I wouldn’t want people thinking we were deceiving them. We didn’t highlight the negative; we wanted to believe in it. When we posted a happy moment [on Twitter/Facebook], we truly were happy in that moment.”

On the latest with Roberto:

“We are not currently in touch, I’m sure we’ll be friends, we did really love each other so maybe one day”.

On reports that she “lost millions” by leaving Facebook years ago:

“Did I have some stock? Yes. How much was it worth? I don’t know…money is the last factor when deciding what I want to do with my life. I made this decision and I’m super happy”

On the current controversial “Bachelor’” contestant, Courtney:

“I am not a fan of what she did on the show and sometimes you think this can’t just be editing, this woman has to be saying this stuff but I was happy to see her apologize.”

On her new hosting job with NBC for the show “1st Look”:

“It’s a lifestyle show where I travel to the best restaurants hotels and nightlife and get to share it with people… I am pretty lucky, I can’t complain, I’m so blessed. It will be on NBC after ‘Saturday Night Live’”

Tune-in to E! News to see the complete interview at 7:00 and 11:30 PM only on E! News.
