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

I love you once. I love you twice. I love you more than beans and rice.

There were many things Gabrielle Solis knew for certain. She knew red was her color. She knew diamonds went with everything and she knew men were all the same. But the one thing Gabrielle knew above all else...she would never want children. Unfortunately for Gabrielle, her husband, Carlos, felt differently. Yes, Gabrielle Solis knew without a doubt she didn't want to be a mother, but what she couldn't know was just how much her husband wanted to be a father, or that he'd been tampering with her birth control for months. Or that within one week's time, she'd be pregnant
