For season five of Desperate Housewives, Eva Longoria Parker is taking her character, Gaby, to a whole new level!

The usually diva-ish Gaby gets a total make-under this season, and for Eva, it’s nothing short of a pain-in-the-butt!

"I hate the fat suit I’m wearing!" Eva told OK! of Gaby’s new look at a NYC M&M’s Premium event Sept. 7. "It’s tight and uncomfortable and I’m like, ‘I hate this fat suit!’"

In last season’s finale, viewers were treated to a flashforward of a much frumpier Gaby, five years from now with two daughters. On top of wearing the fat suit, Eva says she padded her butt, cut off her hair and ate everything she wanted to make the transition more believable.

"I ate everything in sight!" Eva told Entertainment Tonight. "Pasta pappardelle and pizza. Oh, Tony [Parker] and I went crazy this summer."


This season, the show picks up where it left of – in the future, five years from now. Oh, and there won’t be any more designer labels for Gaby!


Eva told ET, "I think we shopped at K-mart for me this season."
