Desperate Housewife Eva Longoria was born on March 15th, 1975 in Corpus Christi, Texas to a Mexican-American Catholic family. Eva took interest to acting later than most. Not til she graduated from college did her acting career spark as an agent spotted her after a talent contest. Her first acting role came in 2000 as she guest starred in teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210. This was just a stepping stone that eventually led to a full time role with long lived soap opera The Young and the Restless. After 2 years she switched to nighttime TV as a sexy adulterer in Desperate Housewives. Eva has been named the Maxim #1 hottest star 2 years in a row, a first for any Maxim winner. Gal pal Jessica Simpson brought in Eva along with other hotties Christina Milian and Christina Applegate to star in her 2006 music video "A Public Affair".
