Every time I think we’ve seen the last of Eva Longoria , the paps always seem to show up with another set of bikini pictures from the former Desperate Housewife . And sure, that booty of hers definitely looks like it’s seen better days, but I can’t think of a much better way for Evan to spend her retirement than hanging out on yachts showering for paparazzi with zoom lenses. Well, unless she wants to start hanging out at my place. I’d better fill up the kiddie pool on the front lawn just in case.
