After eight drama-filled seasons, Desperate Housewives will end this Sunday, May 13th. And what legacy will it leave? According to Eva Longoria, who plays Gabrielle “Gabby” Solis, there’s one thing she hopes her character taught America: “I think she definitely brought the sexy back in suburbia,” she told InStyle.com. “Gabby has had an amazing arc over the eight years—from being a narcissistic, selfish ex-runway model, to a loving, caring mother and wife. It’s been an amazing ride for me, and an amazing journey playing Gabby.” See some of Longoria’s moments on Wisteria Lane in the gallery, and tune in to watch the series finale Sunday at 9/8c on ABC.
