Eva Longoria is moving out of Wisteria Lane to Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington. The 37-year-old actress was dismissed from her role as the sexy Gabrielle Solis on “Desperate Housewives”, when the ABC drama comes to an end after eight seasons.
She is currently working with the reelection campaign of President Barack Obama. Skip the sordid affairs of “Housewives” to the affairs of state was not an easy transition to Longoria, who said it is not always taken seriously in politics.
“People say, who cares about your opinion? You’re just beautiful. But can you not have an intellectual argument about immigration or overhaul health just by being nice? “Eva said in a recent interview. Longoria has also adopted new roles behind the scenes. She is currently preparing a reality show about dating called “All About Love” for NBC. She is co-producing the ABC soap opera style series “Devious Maids” as well about the scandalous lives of the servants.
“For any minority community, is a woman, Latino or black, there are papers limited in Hollywood because we need more people behind the camera,” said Longoria. “So if we reflect ourselves more women on TV or the movies, we have to produce the stories, the stories we have run, we need to get behind the scenes to actually happen.”
Longoria, who is currently studying her masters, studies at the University of California at Northridge. She also said that her greatest achievement will make a difference in the November election. “I’m getting my civic engagement to mobilize voters and make sure they are informed about the issues and acting under the belief that if one wants to change something in this country has the power to do as a citizen. These are perhaps the things I’m most proud.”
