Eva Longoria On 'Telenovela': 'It's A Big Fat Comedy, Not A Latino Comedy'

Eva Longoria happily waves to photographers as she makes her way out of her hotel on Monday (January 4) in New York City.

The following day, the 40-year-old actress continued to promote her new show Telenovela at the AOL Studios as part of their AOL Build panel series.

“The great thing is that it’s just a workplace comedy, it’s a big fat comedy, not a Latino comedy,” Eva expressed in her recent interview with MSNBC. “And my character Ana SofĂ­a is everybody’s way in, she is the eyes in which you can see the show. You don’t need to speak Spanish, the show is not in Spanish.”

FYI: Eva is wearing the Anoushka Belt by Maje.

    It should also come with a disclaimer that this show is based off of the film “Soapdish”. If you watch it you’ll see A LOT of similarities. It’s a complete knockoff from Longoria’s bitchy rival on the set of her soap opera to the man from her past who returns to act on the show. I loved Longoria on Desperate Housewives and love Devious Maids, which she produces. But this is … Meh!

  • Amber

    I’m actually a bit disappointed that she wouldn’t classify this as a Latino/a comedy. Eva Longoria has been very vocal, and active in fighting for more diversity in Hollywood and this comment seems hypocritical from comments she’s made previously.

  • Allure

    love it! I’m also with her in that it is a Comedy.

  • Gina

    Probably because she knows how racist and stereotypical America is, she doesn’t want to alienate potential viewers.
