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 Sofía 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.
