Eva and Tony take lessons in love

Eva Longoria caused a stir when she revealed that her pro-basketball star boyfriend Tony Parker had scored with only one other woman in his life. “I’m the teacher, especially about love,” the Desperate Housewives actress said about her 24-year-old boytoy. But when fans assumed that meant Tony was a lousy lover, Eva, 31, was quick to correct them. “When the lights are out, he’s the teacher and I’m the student!” she says. Regardless of who’s teaching, it’s clear that class is always in session for Eva and Tony.

As the new season of ‘Desperate Housewives’ kicks off, Marcia Cross (aka Bree Van De Kamp) bares all on her character

It seems like in Season 2 on Star World, so much is going on with George and Andrew and Bree’s drinking -- is she going to be happier?
I don’t think Bree knows what would make her happy and that’s part of the problem. She doesn’t want to deal with everything and that’s why she’s drinking and trying to self-medicate.

Is Bree the most desperate housewife?
I guess that’s true. She’s the most desperate.

Are you still finding Bree exhausting to play?
Yes. I wish I could say it is easier but it is really not because she hasn’t been in any one emotional state for very long so it is constantly moving through different journeys with her.

What is the most difficult part of playing Bree?
Getting my own opinions and morals out of the way and aligning with hers. I’m constantly checking out my own thought process and going into somebody else’s, because hers are very different.

What are the characteristics that you actually like about Bree?
Well, even though she is wrong, she is very convinced and she loves her children very deeply. She sticks with her principals strongly; I can identify with that even if they are not mine. In the scene where I beg my son to go to Christian counselling, I had to get my thoughts out of the way because here is a woman who believes that her son is not going to have eternal life and she is going to lose him. Well, I can certainly identify with loss or what it would be like to do anything to get my child to be safe. It’s interesting how you can work your own moral code and substitute it.

How realistic are the expectations that like your characters, all you housewives get along in real life?
Well, we actually do adore each other. Are we like our characters? Well, no, but there are little twinges like Felicity has a couple of kids and Eva is hot. But we do actually get along great - even the men are fantastic.

Isn’t there the slightest competition going on because some get more attention than the others?
Last year Teri had a great year. This year is Felicity’s and it’s so deserved. It’s not about what trophy you get, we are all so lucky and supportive of each other. I think we are just all very grateful too. I mean this is an extraordinary experience.

Nicolette Sheridan's awful plastic surgery

Ever since the new tv show Desperate Housewives hit the airwaves, I have been getting horrified emails about Nicolette Sheridan's appearance. The most common query is ,'What has she done to her face?' Well, lets see at the top.

It definitely looks like she's had a face lift. She's 41, yet look at how smooth her forehead looks; not a line to be seen. Her nose is also slimmer than it was in her Knots Landing days; not only is it slimmer, she's had an implant put in her nose to make it look longer. Nicole's always had a square face, but it looks even more square; could it be from cheek implants? Possibly. Overall, she looks pretty hard these days.
Here's what one fan had to say:

Has anyone taken a close look at Nicollete Sheridan in the interim between ‘Knot’s Landing’ and ‘Desperate Housewives’? She’s looking awfully “plumped” about the lips- and is it just me, or are her eyebrows up higher than they used to be?
