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.
So you're just not gonna talk to me, is that it? Fine. I don't need to talk. Okay. Yes, I had a little affair. It wasn't the best thing to do, and I'm not proud of it. But it's not the worst thing that could have happened. Nobody died. Oh, don't be such a martyr, Carlos. Okay, it takes two people. How many times did you go off on your little business trips and leave me alone? See, so technically, you cheated, too. It's just your mistress was your work.Gabrielle
Bree: My husband, the man I spent my life with for eighteen years, died thinking that I murdered him!
Bree: Yes, the cardiologist shared this moronic theory with Rex and Rex believed him!
Gabrielle: Are you sure?
Bree: Yes, because he left a note. And it said, and I quote, "Bree, I understand and I forgive you." I spent eighteen years of my life with this man. How could he not know me?
Edie: Well, maybe he was forgiving you for something else.
Bree: I have done nothing to be forgiven for! I was a fantastic wife! When he was sick, I nursed him. When we were low on money, I stayed within a budget. I cooked his meals, I mended his clothes. For the love of God, I used to check his back for acne. And that miserable son of a bitch has the nerve to understand and forgive me! Well, the joke's on him because I do not understand and I do not forgive!
