"Desperate" Spoilers: Gabrielle's New Family
Wisteria Lane's self-centered materialistic vixen played by Eva Longoria is getting two overweight daughters when she and her castmates time jump to 2013 on an all-new season of ABC's "Desperate Housewives."
Fans are eager to see whether these bold changes will ruin the beloved Sunday night soap, or if the writers and actors manage to pull it off and keep the show fresh and at the top of its game.
Richardo Chavira, who plays Longoria's husband on the show, has in the meantime become proud father again, welcoming his second child, a daughter named Belen Elysabeth. He says the experience has made him extra protective of the 2 young girls hired to play his daughters on the show.
In an interview with TV Guide, Chavira said he was not sure whether 'Desperate Housewives' should be making fun of child obesity, when the problem is spiraling out of control in North America.
An upcoming storyline features Gaby, a former model, noticing her girls are not living up to her strict standards of physical appearance and discussing the matter with her husband Carlos who is still blind and now a little grey, too.
The plan is for Carlos to regain his sight in the course of the 5th season. In the meantime, he will try to earn some extra cash by working out of his home as massage therapist.
Surprisingly, Gaby who herself appeared somewhat bloated and overweight in last May's finale, appears in top shape in the new episodes. Perhaps Mrs. Parker was unhappy with her character's physical changes and had Marc Cherry scrap them for her.
