It's official her hit show will soon be cancelled.  But that didn't seem to concern Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who was completely engrossed in her 26-year-old boyfriend Eduardo Cruz at the 2011 Starlite Charity Gala in Marbella, Spain.

Wearing an elegant white Grecian style gown, Eva, 36, added a touch of American glamour to the evening, remaining professional as she posed alone for the photocall upon arrival, before focusing her full attention on Eduardo later on. 

It was clear where Eva's real interest lay as once reunited she and Eduardo couldn't keep their hands off each other.

Finding a quiet corner in the crowd the smitten pair kissed, cuddled and whispered to each other, eventually leaving together through a back door at around 4am. 

 



Despite her relaxed demeanor there's no doubt the actress knew her hit ABC show would be ending after the current eighth season, because show creator Marc Cherry revealed today that he had already broken the news to the cast.

While several websites including MailOnline had already reported news of the show's cancellation, Cherry made an official announcement yesterday at the Television Critics Association conference in Malibu, California.

'I wanted to go out when the network still saw us as a viable show and doing well in ratings,' an emotional Cherry told a group of assembled reporters.

'We made this decision together,' Cherry added revealing the decision was a mutual one between him and ABC network brass.

The president of ABC Entertainment Paul Lee was also at the panel discussion adding: 'We wanted to plan it out and we wanted to give it that hero farewell that a show as iconic as this really deserves.'

Desperate Housewives is an international hit with millions of viewers around the world,.

The soap style show which premièred in 2004, made superstars of cast members Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman, Marcia Cross and Eva Longoria and it made the show's producers Hollywood power brokers.

But it hasn't been all hugs and kisses behind the scenes of Wisteria Lane.

Marc Cherry and ex-Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan have been locked in a nasty lawsuit after she claimed she was wrongfully terminated from the show.

Sheridan made the allegations in 15 pages of testimony submitted in Los Angeles Superior Court as part of $20 million lawsuit against Cherry and ABC.

The actress also accused Cherry of giving her a violent slap during an on-set confrontation. However, Cherry fired back saying the allegations are not true.

'I vigorously deny hitting Ms Sheridan; I did give her a light tap on the head in giving direction for what I wanted her to do to her show husband in a scene.

'Regardless I did not tap, hit or otherwise touch Sheridan because she is a woman.'

Sheridan was axed from the show in its fifth series in 2009, with her character being killed off after being electrocuted following a car accident.

She was replaced by former Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams, who is returning for the eighth season and final season.

At the TCA conference today, Cherry said he and ABC began talking a year ago about when to end the show, but they only recently decided to pull the plug after the current season

The show creator also confirmed there was talk of a spin off, but he vetoed the idea.

Although he admits he was tempted when he told 'Housewives' star Eva Longoria about the show's end, because he wanted to keep working with her. 'I love Eva Longoria more than life itself,' he said.

In April, Mail Online reported that the show's original cast members, Hatcher, Huffman, Cross and Longoria had all been given staggering raises, making them the highest paid actresses on US television.

After months of intense behind-the-scenes negotiations, the four actresses finalised new contracts paying them a reported £250,000-an-episode for the eighth season.

A source said: 'We had to get the girls back. The show simply earns too much money to stop making it.'

The foursome previously took home around £180,000-an-episode.

With Cherry's new ABC project Hallelujah picked up to pilot, Desperate Housewives executive producer Bob Daily will helm the show while Cherry is working on his pilot and is expected to continue to do so if Hallelujah is picked up for a full series.

Despite slipping in the ratings from its heyday, Desperate Housewives is still a big hit and a huge moneymaker.
