Los Angeles: `Desperate Housewives` star Eva Longoria says everyone is emotional on the set of the show because they are upset about its end.

The drama show is set to finish at the end of the ninth series and the actress, who has played Gabrielle Solis since it began, says everyone on set is constantly "emotional", reported Ace Showbiz.

"I can`t - you`re going to make me cry already. I can`t even think about it. I mean, every episode that we`re shooting now is a little sad, because we`re like, `Oh, another scene of all of us in the woods, another scene of all of us playing poker.` It`s all emotional - every episode is emotional for all of us," she said.

Longoria has many good memories of her stint on the show but she says the early days of the programme were her favourites.

"My favourite moment will always be the pilot, the first episode. And kind of that time, too, because it was such madness.

"We always have fond memories of that time, and I remember Helen Hunt telling me, `There`s nothing like the birth of a hit, so remember every moment ... It`s rare, you know, and we kind of hit the lottery, so it`s bittersweet to me to be here and say goodbye," Longoria said.
