Eva Longoria stars as the beautiful former model, Gabrielle "Gaby" Solis on ABC's Desperate Housewives.  Gabrielle gave up her modeling career to marry the rich businessman, Carlos.

However, Gaby soon grew bored with suburbia and had her infamous affair with her young gardener.  When her husband Carlos lost his job and ended up in jail, Gaby was forced to get a series of odd jobs.  However, it was their inability to have a kid that led to their eventual divorce.

Gabby then got together with a mayoral candidate, Victor.  However, she eventually ended up back with Carlos and it ended with a showdown between Victor and Carlos, resulting in Victor's death and Carlos' blindness.

Carlos and Gabby then had kids and Gabby eventually let herself go.  However, Carlos eventually regained his vision and Gabby became pretty again.  Yay.

Desperate Housewives Quotes

(Susan is trying to visit Mike at the coma ward)
Nurse: You need to leave. You're disturbing the other patients.
(a security guard grabs Susan by the arms)

My name is Mary Alice Young. When you read this morning's paper you may come across an article about the unusual day I had last week. Normally there is never anything newsworthy about my life, but that all changed last Thursday. Of course everything seemed quite normal at first. I made breakfast for my family, I performed my chores, I completed my projects, I ran my errands. In truth, I spent the day as I spent every other day, quietly polishing the routine of my life, until it gleamed with perfection. That's why it was so astonishing when I decided to go to my hallway closet and retrieve a revolver that had never been used
