Eva Longoria treats ‘Desperate’ set to burgers on last day
The cast and crew on ABC’s "Desperate Housewives" got the perfect parting gift from Eva Longoria: burgers and fries in which to drown their sorrows.
Longoria, who has played high-strung fashionista Gabrielle Solis for eight seasons, treated her coworkers to a Fatburger lunch truck on the show’s final day of shooting Thursday.
“Thank you Fatburger for making the last day on the set of Desperate Housewives special!” she tweeted, rocking a purple cocktail dress and comfy boots.
While an onlooker tells us costar Doug Savant chowed down and socialized with staff, the main ladies of Wisteria Lane were busy with their final shot. If additional photos posted to Longoria’s Twitter account are any indication, one of the show’s final scenes will be a fan-pleaser.
Pictures of Longoria embracing fellow stars Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross have the ladies at a dining table over cheese and wine -- the site of many of the classic card-game scenes where the women (including Teri Hatcher) bonded over murder, adultery and recipe-swapping.
One last shot from Longoria includes show creator Marc Cherry, Vanessa Williams, Eva’s onscreen husband Ricardo Chavira and Brenda Strong, the show’s posthumous narrator who kicked off the intrigue eight years ago when she killed herself in the pilot.
