Desperate Housewives: where are Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria, and the other ‘wives’ now?

Before reality television overtook our screens, and before we became fixated on the Kardashians, the world was obsessed with the inhabitants of Wisteria Lane on the iconic show, Desperate Housewives.

The fictional street was home to harried mum-of-four Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman), conservative perfectionist Bree Van de Kamp (Marcia Cross), creative free-spirit Susan Mayer (Teri Hatcher) and glamorous former-model Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Bastón) and their wickedly dysfunctional families.

The show aired from 2004 to 2012, for eight seasons, and was screened a decade and a half before we had streaming services – meaning back then, we only got to watch the suspenseful domestic dramedy once a week.

Here’s what the stars of one of the 2000s most iconic shows have been up to.

Since Desperate Housewives, the Emmy award-winning actor has starred in a string of successful roles, in shows such as Shameless and American Crime, and the movie Transamerica, for which she won a Golden Globe Award. Huffman has had projects with Netflix, most notably Get Shorty, which streamed in 2018.

Huffman is married to fellow award-winning actor William H. Macy, and they share teenage daughters Sofia and Georgia.

This week, 56-year-old Huffman was arrested for fraud charges after allegedly paying $15 000 for a college to double the time given to her daughter to sit an exam. Those charges are pending.
