Now legally a wife but hardly desperate, Eva Longoria returned to the set of Desperate Housewives Monday after a three-week wedding celebration and honeymoon.

"It was a great wedding, but it was time to come home," Longoria's rep Liza Anderson tells PEOPLE. "I got a call from her this morning (and) she was already at work. She sounded so great, really upbeat. She's completely content."

Longoria, 32, arrived at the Universal Studios lot at 7:30 a.m. fresh from her low-key honeymoon with basketball star Tony Parker, 25, to the Caribbean Island of Turks and Caicos.

The newlyweds dined over long candlelit dinners and spent their days relaxing and playing pingpong and Yahtzee.

"It was just her and Tony," says Anderson. "They had a private villa. She's completely relaxed and rejuvenated. She had a full week alone with Tony to decompress. It was the perfect balance to gear up for Season 4. So she's really excited. She wasn't dreading work at all."

The wedding marathon began with a party with family and friends in St. Tropez and a romantic excursion to France's picturesque Mont Saint-Michel. After a civil ceremony, they were married in Paris's historic Church of St. Germain L'Auxerrois in front of about 250 guests, followed by a lavish reception in a castle.

"She's happier than ever right now," says Anderson. "Life is great."

Ricardo Chivara, who plays Carlos, husband of Longoria's character Gabrielle on Housewives, "saw Eva for the first time today, and of course she was saying hello and being welcomed back by all the crew and cast and everything," he told PEOPLE on Monday.

"We talked a little bit and we have a huge scene to shoot tomorrow, so we'll talk tomorrow and I'm sure I'll get all the dirt."

Although Chivara was not at the wedding because he was working and spending time with his son in Texas, he said of the new bride, "She seems happy. Tony showed up today and I talked to him and got the lowdown [on the wedding] from him as well. I think they're finally just glad for it to be over, to be honest."
