Eva Longoria talks politics, producing
NEW YORK (AP) — “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria is leaving Wisteria Lane for 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
The 37-year-old actress was named a national co-chair for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign in February, and she’s bidding farewell to her sassy, model-turned-housewife character Gabrielle Solis on the ABC drama’s May 13 finale.
But making the leap from the domestic affairs of the “Housewives” to a national political campaign hasn’t been an easy transition.
“People go, `Who cares about your opinion, you’re just pretty,“’ Longoria said. “And it’s like, `Why can’t I have an intellectual argument about immigration or health care reform just because I’m pretty?“’
The Mexican-American actress is also developing a dating reality series titled, “All About Love,” for NBC and is co-producing ABC’s upcoming telenovela-style TV drama “Devious Maids,” about the scandalous lives of the hired help.
