Eva Longoria Steals from the Desperate Housewives Set

Eva Longoria on the set of Desperate HousewivesEva Longoria has been stealing from the Desperate Housewives set. The 37-year-old actress wanted mementos from the eight years on the series - which will come to an end this month - but admitted bosses had to stop her from taking more items and she is trying to conceal what she has already taken.

"I have stolen some stuff but I'm not going to tell you exactly what because they'll ask for it back. They've already told me, 'Stop stealing things.' I don't want them to know what it is that I have stashed away. What I really want are the Warhols but I haven't found them!" she said.

Eva has admitted the read-through of the final script of the series turned into a "crying fest" because she and her co-stars Brenda Strong, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross were overwhelmed with emotion: "It was a crying fest. Brenda couldn't get through her voice-overs. I couldn't get through my dialogue."

"We sat there crying, hugging and reminiscing," Felicity added.

"It was a sweet, private moment for us," Marcia said.

Vanessa Williams in Desperate Housewives cast

This cast photo makes me miss Ugly Betty just a little bit less.

Although we’re about to begin the seventh season of , a few new faces might help keep the ABC series fresh.

A few weeks ago, we got to a glimpse of Brian Austin Green on set with Marcia Cross. Now, we’re getting a taste of what Vanessa Williams might bring to the show. (Doesn’t she seem right at home in the middle of these ladies?)

First Look: Brian Austin Green in Desperate Housewives

Brian Austin Green was able to win over Vanessa Marcil and (new wife) Megan Fox, but what kind of effect will he have on Marcia Cross?

In the upcoming season of Desperate Housewives, the former 90210 star will play a handyman hired by Bree (Cross) to work on her home. That tattooed character will not only catch the eye of the redhead, but also the eye of new Wisteria Lane resident: Ugly Betty‘s Vanessa Williams.

“Suddenly by episode 4 they’re both going after him,” executive producer Bob Daly teased.

Season 7 of Housewives will debut on September 26.

Assessing (and Ignoring) the New Fall Season

Kitchen NightmaresAs I type this, I’m listening to the new Radiohead album, In Rainbows, and I’m in a terrifically good mood.  See, I love Radiohead like Tyra Banks loves … well, Tyra Banks, and so you would think that this good mood would make me put together a list of wonderful things about the new fall TV season.

Yeah, not so much.  To be honest, I haven’t watched a lot of the new fall network TV shows.  But it’s worthwhile to take a look at these shows and for me to say what I watched, what I thought, and why I didn’t watch a lot of them.  Well, it’s worthwhile for me anyway.  Plus it goes well with Radiohead (not really, but it’s not like I’m gonna stop listening).  Here goes:
