The 46-year-old's heels and pumps remain in her collection forever; she even has a closet for her older pairs which her husband Hose Baston can't get his around.

"With my shoes, I never say, 'Thank you and goodbye.' I'm like, thank you, and I move it to the other closet. I can't part, and my husband goes, 'Why do you keep all these shoes?' I'm like, 'I'm a shoe collector.' As if I'm an art collector. It's a thing," she told People magazine.

The 'Desperate Housewives' star also admitted that she has a relationship with her Louboutin pumps because they grew up together. Eva got her hands on the nude patent pumps and is extremely protective of them. She says she treats them like babies in her closet.

"I feel like Louboutins came of age when I was coming into my fame, or when I was coming into my popularity. I feel like we have a relationship of growing together. So it was like the shoe to have at the moment when I started Desperate Housewives. I remember just craving having a collection of many Louboutins. But really the main pair I wanted, which was very hard to get because I have a very small foot, it was always sold out, this patent leather nude."
