Cher and Alexander “A.E.” Edwards have been long in love and their relationship stands boldly against social norms and rules, separated by a 40-year age gap. Cher, age 77, and Edwards, age 37, started their journey when they went public in November 2022, and it has been a relationship filled with highs and lows.
October and November 2022
In October 2022 they met during Paris Fashion Week through a common friend. Cher found Edwards “so special” that she was prepared to bend her own rules that said no going out with younger men.
On November 1, Cher tweeted, “One part of my life is SO AMAZING,” and within a day a couple was photographed walking with rapper Tyga hand-in-hand. The same month, Cher also uploaded some images of Edwards and had a chat with her fans, describing the traits of her boyfriend that she would never trade for anything in the world. She described him as gentle, clever, and witty, highlighting how they suited each other.
December 25, 2022: Sparking Engagement Rumors
Cher posted an image of an outstanding pear-shaped diamond ring on Christmas Day, making many wonder whether the couple had gotten engaged during the holiday season.
She didn’t confirm or deny the rumors, but she did say in another tweet that she only posted the photo because Edwards’ nails were so cool.
In her New Year’s Eve post, Cher referred to Edwards as daddy while sporting the supposed engagement ring on her middle finger. Cher also wore the ring while having a candlelit supper with Edwards a couple of days later. The two also had a magical moment at MAC’s event white sporting similar new blonde hair.
Cher admitted they had been working on a music partnership. She was overjoyed with the songs she received from him. This collaboration implied how close they were, not only on a personal level but also in the workplace. But in May, it was reported that the couple separated “a few weeks ago.”
September and October 2023
However, a few months later in September, the couple was photographed hand in hand going out to dinner. This hinted towards a patch-up and sent shock amongst fans.
As October 2023 rolled in, Cher and Edwards celebrated their one-year anniversary. Cher expressed her happiness, highlighting the joy and laughter in their relationship. Despite the odds, they were still going strong.
Desperate Housewives famed Eva Longoria revealed that she is ready to return for a reboot of the show. According to an industry source, the classic ABC drama is unlikely to get a revival, after the finale of the series aired in 2012. But the actress seems hopeful nonetheless!
Eva Longoria starred in the comedy-drama-mystery series Desperate Housewives which premiered in 2004 on ABC. Created by Why Women Kill show-runner Marc Cherry, the series garnered much praise throughout its eight seasons, from viewers and critics alike. The show also secured multiple awards including two Golden Globes in the category of the Best Series- Musical or Comedy.
The Cast and the Story
The show centered on the lives of four women living in the suburban area of Wisteria Lane. The story began after the incident of the suicide of the women’s friend, Mary Alice Young, and was narrated by the deceased character, who was voiced by Brenda Strong. Eva Longoria played the role of Gabrielle Solis, one of the four main women. The show also starred famed actresses Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman alongside Longoria, in the central roles of Susan Mayer, Bree Van de Kamp, and Lynette Scavo, respectively. These friends embarked on a journey to solve the mystery behind their friend’s demise while hiding and facing other secrets in their own suburban lives.
Desperate Housewives was one of the most successful TV series of its time. Several critical reviews have hailed the show as a great mix of soap opera and mystery, much like the acclaimed show Twin Peaks. Considering the level of popularity and box office success, it’s only natural that the question of a reboot has been circling for some time now. Especially now, when nearly every popular show, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to Sex and the City, is being revived or rebooted decades later, Desperate Housewives appears to be the perfect next candidate to take the same route.
The Possibility of Revival
Almost ten years have passed since the final episode of Desperate Housewives was aired. In the meantime, even though Eva Longoria has responded positively to a series reboot, confessing that she is ready to sign up for another journey to Wisteria Lane, it is unlikely to happen anytime soon. Unlike Longoria, the other cast members expressed no such enthusiasm and out-rightly rejected the idea of the show’s return. The creator Marc Cherry also expressed the view that he has finished exploring the characters, strongly putting a stop to the idea of a revival.
