Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria was asked by Women’s Wear Daily to talk about her life since the end of her tenure on Wisteria Lane. Calling the final episode “bittersweet,” Longoria says that saying goodbye to the cast, crew – and her character – after eight seasons was difficult. “It was really heartbreaking to know I would never play Gabby again,” the actress told WWD.  I mean, all of that was really sad, but at the same time, I’m so excited to turn the page and embark on this new journey of my career, of my life. You know, Desperate Housewives [was] all-consuming. It’s year-round filming. It’s always in L.A., you don’t have time to travel, you don’t have time to do movies, you don’t have time to do anything else. So now, I feel like a free bird.”
