Eva Longoria Gets A Raise

It looks like Eva Longoria will be sticking around on Wisteria Lane for at least one more season!

The Desperate Housewives star, who plays fan-favorite Gabrielle Solis on the hit ABC dramedy, and her costars Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross are finalizing deals to return to the show next fall. The new deals are for one year with an option for a second. According to Deadline.com, ABC will renew DH for an eight season, but it’s not yet known whether the network will announce the news right away, or wait until May upfronts to do so.  

For season eight, Longoria’s salary will go from $275,000 to $325,000. Combined with back-end bonuses, the actress is expected to make about $375,000 per episode (the same as her DH costars Hatcher, Huffman and Cross). If Eva signs on for a ninth season, her base salary is expected to be raised once again to $350,000 per episode, plus other incentives.
