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.
Angie: We make sure they don't do anything stupid. Have you gotten Ana birth control?
Gabrielle: I make her spend time with Juanita and Celia. I was hoping that would do it.
Carlos: You know who you are, Gabby? You're the kind of person who would've turned away Mary and Joseph from the Inn.
Gabrielle: Well, they should've called ahead.
