There is a fashion crisis at ABC! According to an internal ABC memo which MSNBC had access to, the network is cutting the fashion budgets of its shows. "No more than $150 may be spent on men’s or women’s accessories; no more than $250 on a pair of women’s shoes (only $200 for men’s shoes). Handbags should cap out at $300 and men’s suits at $1,500."
Well, no wonder Desperate Housewives' Marc Cherry turned Eva Longoria's Gabi into a frumpy housewife, the show probably couldn't afford Gabi's wardrobe. No more mowing the grass in an evening gown for Gabi, no sir, can't afford to film such memorable scenes.
