Eva Longoria

Eva Jacqueline Longoria Parker (born March 15, 1975) is a Golden Globe Award-nominated American film and television actress. She plays Gabrielle Solis in the ABC television series Desperate Housewives, and stars in the film Over Her Dead Body. She has also become an nationally recognized model after appearing in several high-profile advertising campaigns and numerous men's magazines. Longoria is also known for her high profile relationship with NBA guard Tony Parker, whom she married in 2007.
Career
Longoria landed her first television role in 2000, guest-starring in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210. In 2004, Longoria landed a role that elevated her to the A-List. She starred as adulteress Gabrielle Solis in the worldwide break-out ABC hit Desperate Housewives. As the show became an overnight sensation, Longoria's career was well and truly launched. But she has never considered her career to have jumped off so suddenly, "I think it’s funny when people say I’m an overnight sensation, because I’ve been working at it for 10 years."

In 2005, she was rewarded for her performance as Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives when she was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series. She also starred opposite Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland in the 2006 thriller The Sentinel, which was her first major role in a theatrical movie.
In 2006, Longoria appeared in Jessica Simpson's music video "A Public Affair" along with Christina Milian, Christina Applegate, Ryan Seacrest, Maria Menounos, and Andy Dick. Longoria was on the cover of the September 2006 issue of Maxim Magazine. In 2007, the stars of Desperate Housewives each renewed their contracts with ABC for four years, worth $40 million. In November 2007, Longoria won a Bambi award in Germany for best TV Actress.
Personal life
Longoria was married to General Hospital star Tyler Christopher from January 20, 2002, to January 19, 2004. On November 30, 2006, she became engaged to Spurs point guard Tony Parker. She said the way he proposed was "perfect, personal, and sweet." After playing against the Utah Jazz, Parker flew out to Los Angeles, which was unexpected because she never thought he would come there after the game. She got off work at about midnight and found Parker waiting for her. The couple was officially married on July 6, 2007. They had their lavish church wedding on July 7, 2007 in Paris. Longoria was voted No. 10 in COED Magazine Online's list of "Top 20 Sexiest Athlete Wives of 2007".


Charity work
Longoria founded Eva's Heroes a charity which helps developmentally disadvantaged children. She signed shoe for the Spirit of Women Red Shoe Celebrity Auction. Longoria also supports the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Stroke Association, Project HOME and St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.

Digital Memory sure is becoming cheaper these days. I'm curious as to when we will finally reach the rate of 1c to 1 Gigabyte.

I'm quietly waiting for the day when I will finally be able to afford a 20 terabyte harddisk . But for now I will be content with having a 16 GB Micro SD Card in my R4i.
