Eva Longoria says that her selfishness is what got her to win the role that made her famous on "Desperate Housewives". She explained to Tatler: "Marc Cherry asked me, 'What did you think of the script?' So I said, 'You know, I didn't read the script, I just read my parts and I think she's fantastic'.
"He said he knew I was Gaby at that moment because that was the most selfish thing to say. That I only read my part. He goes, 'Yep, there's our Gaby.'"
Parker also reveals how her family thought her decision to join the one hour drama and leaving daytime television was a big mistake at first: "I remember when I got Desperate Housewives, my mum was like, 'But it's not on during the day?' She was really upset about it. But I said, 'I think this is better Mum'."
Thankfully, she trusted her instincts! The show rocketed her to fame and is still a hit after seven seasons. Eva has been highlarious lately with great one-liners showcasing her great comedic abilities.
