After a long time, I have decided to go back to Wisteria Lane and create the rest of the female cast of the very popular series - Desperate Housewives.

I have so enjoyed making them, as they are really beautiful women. I do hope you will download them and have them in your game. Maybe you can build Wisteria Lane houses that they can live in. Susan and Lynette to follow and I might do a revamp of my previous upload Bree.

Anyway, please enjoy. Thank you.






To get Eva Longoria (Gaby) to show up in your game like she looks in the pictures, you will need the following:

Huge thanks to my daughter Hayley who loves the show and helped me see how to improve her.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the sim to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sim file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\SavedSims folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game, enter Create-a-Sim, and save a sim to the sim bin to create this folder, rather than doing so manually. After that you can close the game and put the .sim file in SavedSims
4. Once the .sim file is in SavedSims, you can load the game, and look for your sim in the premade sims bin in Create-a-Sim.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

JCHnd, wait till you see Teri Hatcher and you might change your mind.

Thanks Es and Jc.

Thank you mod(s) for your kind comment on my upload.

I like it! I can see Eva Longoria in her! I can only hope my Gaby turns out half as good as this one

She's very pretty, but it doesn't look much like Eva Longoria IMHO. :/

I thought it was Sandra Bullock. Doesn't matter, though. She's a very nice sim.

When I was scrolling the screen, and I saw a miniature, my first thought was "OMG, Susan from Desperate Housewives!" but then I saw the title... She's very pretty, but not really like Gabrielle. There's something with her lips.

What can I say, some see Eva, some see Susan, some see Sandra Bullock. I hope those who see Susan will change their minds when Susan goes up.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. May I ask those people who gave criticism, to point out what I can do to improve her.

MySimsBlog's comments are getting worse and worse everyday, and some people are just simply down right rude and ungrateful. Don't let the troll's comments get you down, I doubt they could achieve anything close to your gorgeous work. I also admire how you took the criticism in such a calm and patient manner, I know there are heaps of people out there who love and appreciate your work, myself being one of them.

I definitely see Eva, and the eyes and the nose are spot on. I think that the main thing is that the distance between mouth and the nose is too large, and overall the face is a bit too long.

But those are just a few things I see, because I think there's a great resemblance already! Nice work

People who say sunshine brings happiness have obviously never danced in the rain.

Audrey, I think she looks fantastic. It isn't spot on in your pictures, but I think some people just don't realize how hard some celebrities can be to make into Sims. You got way closer than I ever have when trying to make a female. I only deal with male celebrities mostly for that reason.

I played her in game for a bit, and she does look right in my game. Maybe you need to work on picture taking? I don't know how to do that because my pictures suck, but it seems that people are ready to down your work without even d/ling it and giving it a chance. Then post anonymous gripes that really don't help you improve. All I have to say, is in-game, she's fantastic and is a Sim I'm keeping.

Thank you Fragglerocks and Emmz. However, there seems to be too many people thinking she looks like Sandra Bullock or Teri Hatcher or not even remotely like Eva, that I must re-open my thread in CFF and get more feedback. So those people who have constructive criticism on how to improve her, please let me know on the thread.

I think it's funny that a lot of the people complaining are not even creators. Why dont you try making something and have people bitcn about it?

I don't take requests. :-)

Yes, I'm not a creator, and no, I'm not bitching, but I could have sworn it was Teri Hatcher until I read the name. I did some comparisons, I think the eye height and shape could use some work, but I think it's the blush that makes her look different from Eva Longoria. Not saying she's not a great sim- She totally is, you did a great job, it's just subtle differences that can make or break the similarities.

Nobody is "bitching" about it. It's called constructive criticism and I think it's great of Audrey to be willing to reopen her thread to get more feedback on her creation in order to improve it.

Thank you all for your feedback. I really do strive to get the sim as close to the IRL pictures. It seems I have fallen short this time and maybe other times as well. I do welcome constructive feedback and thanks for commenting on my thread.
