Eva Longoria Parker
Born March 15, 1975
Eva Longoria made her mark on television playing Gabriela Solis on ABC’s Desperate Housewives, but got her first big break on the soap opera The Young and the Restless. The Mexican-American author of Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends, has been the face of L'Oréal Paris, Hanes, New York & Co., and Bebe Sport, in addition to promoting her own fragrance, Eva by Eva Longoria.

Despite a public divorce from NBA player Tony Parker in November 2010, Longoria rose above the rumors, continuing to act and be actively involced in Latino issues and charity work with PADRES Contra El Cancer, the National Council of La Raza and her own foundation, Eva’s Heroes.
Looks like Eva Longoria isn't the only Desperate Housewife in San Antonio Texas these days. Longoria received a dramatic visit from her ex-mother in law Pamela Firestone at a recent signing of her new book Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family & Friends.

We were shocked when we read about the recent drama between Desperate Housewives series’ creator Marc Cherry and Nicolette Sheridan. Sheridan is currently in the process of suing Cherry, and has accused him in a deposition of (among other things) making some vile comments about her former costars.
“I was present at Eva Longoria’s wedding to Tony Parker," claims Sheridan in the lawsuit. "When Mr. Cherry commented that 'Tony must like boys if he is marrying this little, small girl with no...
