Funny Pictures Celebrity Biography
Eva Longoria is an American actress who is best known for her role as model Gabrielle Solis in the hit ABC comedy drama, Desperate Housewives. Born in Texas, she was raised a Roman Catholic by her two Tejano parents. She originally wanted to be a model, but was rejected because of her height. Instead, she went on to gain a Bachelor of Science degree at Texas A&M University-Kingsville in Sports Medicine. While at college, Eva won a talent contest which took her to LA.
There, she met an agent and in 2000, guest-starred in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. The role led to bigger things, and Eva finally got the break she was looking for, starring in US soap opera The Young And The Restless, in which she played Isabella Braña (2001-2003). But it wasn't until 2004 that Eva was elevated to the A-List when she landed a lead part in Desperate Housewives. The darkly funny show became a world-wide sensation overnight, and made her internationally famous. She made her debut as a co-producer in Carlita's Secret (2004). Her first major theatrical movie role was in thriller The Sentinel (2006) starring alongside Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland.
In 2007, Eva married Spurs American football player Tony Parker. Sadly, in 2010 it was alleged that Tony had been having an affair with a former team-mate's wife, and Eva filed for divorce. Since then, she's been romantically linked to Penelope Cruz's brother, Eduard
The best thing about Janice's memoir—an account of how she survived an abusive home, became a highly paid model, became a drug addict, and fucked lots of famous guys—is that she's really funny, irreverent, and (edited to be?) lucid. The second best thing about it is how deliciously TMI she is about everything: her binge-and-purge episodes before photo shoots; when she tried to trick Sylvester Stallone into thinking he was the father of her baby when he wasn't; fucking her best friend's (Jerry Hall) boyfriend (Mick Jagger); getting totally fucked up on coke and booze at Stephanie Seymour's bachelorette party until she puked; what a scumbag Bill Cosby is; and describing—in detail—Liam Neeson's penis size. The third best thing about her book is that it caught the attention of Tyra Banks, who then hired Janice as a judge on her new reality show America's Next Top Model, introducing her particular brand of inanity to a new generation, and helping create the second phase of Janice's career, as an arbitrary—yet weirdly reliable—source of inanity.
