Eva Longoria has claimed, and it’s true, that the pile of pounds she packed on lately is to catch up with Gabrielle Solis’ five-year transformation into the future.  Gabby, of course, is the character she plays on ABC’s Desperate Housewives.  Last we checked, Gabby has evolved from the petite and bitchy housewife from the past few seasons to a mother of two who has obviously gained some heft.

“Five years on, Gabrielle has let herself go,” she says, “because Carlos [Solis, her husband] is blind and she’s had two kids and she’s let go of that vanity.  I love it because my hair and make-up only takes ten minutes rather than the usual two hours.”

Longoria admits, however, that the gain in weight is not purely because of Desperate Housewives.  Although her figure is still mighty slim for the general population, for weight-obsessed Hollywood, it is already rather plump.

“I’ve been cooking and eating, cooking and eating.  I’ve eaten pretty much everything in sight,” while adding that she has been binging on pizza and pasta.

After just celebrating her first wedding anniversary to basketball player Tony Parker, Longoria is clearly on the prowl for babies, and she admits it.

‘I’ve always wanted to be married with kids.  I almost had a checklist in my head: career?  Check.  Marriage?  Check.  Kids?  Check.  I can’t wait!

“There’s always something people are asking you.  When you’re dating someone, it’s, ‘When are you going to get married?’  Then you get married and it’s, ‘When’s the baby?’  Then you have a baby and it’s, ‘When’s the divorce?’  So I guess I should count myself lucky we’re still at the ‘When’s the baby?’ stage.”

Now after dodging those pesky pregnancy rumors, it can only mean that Longoria, number 14 in FHM magazine’s annual 100 Sexiest Women poll, and one of Hollywood’s most beautiful and skinniest actresses, has really gained some weight.  And Desperate Housewives fans say she’s never been prettier.
