Maria Conchita AlonsoCuban-born actress Maria Conchita Alonso has stunned Desperate Housewives fans by revealing she was once bulimic. The 49-year-old actress, who plays the mother of Eva Longoria's character Gabrielle Solis on the hit show, admits her eating disorder became a big problem when she could no longer sleep lying down.

She says, "I did open a hole in my oesophagus... I called a friend of mine and said, 'I think I'm dying, I need help.'"

At the height of her illness, the star admits she'd gobble bags of chocolate, throw up and then exercise. Alonso is still a fitness freak, but she now works out with a trainer and nutritionist.

She says, "It's not right to believe that the only way you're gonna get a job and the only way you're gonna get a man or be happy is by being so skinny."
