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!
