Eva Longoria getting reality show based on her life after divorce

Eva Longoria’s BFF Mario Lopez got a reality show (I downloaded the first episode of “Saved By The Baby” for free on iTunes and couldn’t bring myself to watch it) and now it’s not surprising to hear that Eva is about to get her own reality show. It will reportedly feature Eva’s courageous recovery from her husband’s infidelity that she went running to the press about.

Eva Longoria’s getting a new dose of reality!… [She] told pals that A&E network’s set to green-light a show based on her endlessly dramatic real life. Revealed a pal: “Eva wants to document her push to reassemble her life after a broken marriage. It will highlight her intensive charity work and show what she’s really all about!” And maybe taunt Tony with a peek at her new dating life? The show should include lotsa scenes with Eva’s mega-watt real-life pals – like Mario Lopez and Jamie Foxx. Stay tuned.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, Mike Walker’s column January 10, 2011]

Does anyone want to see Eva in all her preening glory? I’m sure she has some fans from Desperate Housewives who would watch her pretend to not be an entitled diva. I’ve also heard she pampers her dog, and that could be interesting for about five minutes. No one can top Lisa VanderPump and Giggy, though.

Why do we need more reality shows with C Listers when we can see fabulous new stars that bring the drama every week? We want interesting plotlines and catfights, not boring television personalities trying to increase brand awareness so that they can earn more in their next perfume campaign.

A&E should know better. They’re the network that brought us “Kirstie Alley’s Big Life” and look how well that worked out for them.

    Um, why?

  2. Rita says:

    “57 channels and nothing on”..The Boss

    I have more imagination watching paint dry than Hollywood puts into movies and TV.

  3. LisaMarie says:

    Why is she standing like a flamingo in those last two pictures?

  4. malachais says:

    I’m not sure what’s more ridiculous here, the title “Saved by the Baby” or her “courageous recovery from her husband’s infidelity” LOL – barf!!

    You know she would just spend the entire show blabbing about herself and promoting sh-t.

  5. lilred says:

    What the hell is she wearing?

  6. Kaboom says:

    @LisaMarie: She is re-enacting the peak of her acting career?

  7. Celebitchy says:

    @malachais the “courageous recovery from her husband’s infidelity” was just me being sarcastic, no one really said that but it sounds like Eva to me.

  8. Nicole says:

    she sure is a Desperate Housewife. who the hell wants to follow her azz on tv, not to mention that idiot mario lopiss, i caught his fake azz show one time and that was enough for me

  9. Westcoaster says:

    Eva has been separated for less than six months and a reality show about her post-marriage life is in the works?
    It almost sounds like this has been in the works for quite awhile. Is it possible that someone would file for divorce from a spouse in order to get their own reality show? Hmmmmm
    Of course that is nonsense. Everyone knows how much Eva hates being in the spotlight…..

  10. brin says:

    This is a bad idea….what’s next, “Ryan & Scarlett,the miniseries”, “Leann & Eddie:Homewreckers”, a new show on HGTV?

  11. poopie says:

    ” Her recovery from a broken marriage..”
    HUH? when my marriage ended A & E NEVER called me ! it’s not like it’s an UNUSUAL THING. if she was worth anything or was any kind of actress, MAYBE, but WHO would watch her or even CARE?
    oh, she has weird eyes and fat legs.

  12. malachais says:

    @celebitchy, oh no I get it, so funny yet ridiculous like Eva!

  13. maria says:

    Ugh. Just Ugh. I guess this is proof that she can’t get any real acting jobs, so she settled and/or pulled some strings to get a reality show. Just Ugh. She makes brunettes look bad.

  14. happygirl says:

    LMAO @ LisaMarie!

  15. the original bellaluna says:

    A&E – Arts & Entertainment Channel, my ass.

    MTV – Music Television, my ass.

    TLC – The Learning Channel, my ass.

    Combine all these trashy networks & their “reality programming” into one big messy network, and call it VTV – Voyeuristic Television. Or TTV – Trash Television. At least have the balls to be honest about they’re programming.

    These networks seriously need to stop telling viewers that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a very interesting dog that we NEED to watch.

  16. Johnny Depp's Girl says:


    Who are these executives that think this reality crap is a good idea??

    Give me True Blood any day. FANG!

  17. skilo says:

    “We want interesting plot lines and cat fights, not boring television personalities trying to increase brand awareness so that they can earn more in their next perfume campaign.”
    Honestly the 80’s and early 90’s were the best for tv now mostly it all just sucks.

  18. Tess says:

    This project sounds so uninteresting to me, I’d have to make a note to self just to remember to forget it.

  19. JustBored says:

    Reality shows are for “has beens” or “wannabes”. Signing on for a reality show sums up your career pretty well.

  20. nnn says:

    I rather see a rerun of Starsky and Hutch, Dallas and Dynasty than this sh*t !

    Bring back those 70’s and 80’s shows ! they may be stupid and outdated but there were funnily stupid.

    Now everything reecks of patheticness and desperation !

  21. dragonfly says:

    @LisaMarie: She’s the Black Flamingo!

  22. lucy2 says:

    I hope this flops in a gigantic way. Seems like she sent out feelers to networks before the ink on her divorce filing was even dry.
    I always figured her career would be kaput once Housewives ended.

    Also, it looks like the back of her dress got caught in her underwear.

  23. lin234 says:

    And this is why she’s not Sandra Bullock. Can you imagine Sandra doing a reality show? lol

  24. Marjalane says:

    Oh please, please, please- let someone uncover a few of Eva’s marital indescretions and release the info right before her show premiers. I can just see Mario Lopez playing “Nick” to Eva’s “Camille”.

  25. Oi says:

    The black flamingo does not have the thighs to wear that dress.

  26. Stubbylove says:

    That sounds about right…

  27. Hautie says:

    Miss Longoria is playing with fire.

    She is far from a saint and has been the answer to many blind items on CDAN.

    What little she may do for charity does not balance out the nasty daily behavior to the peons’ that she tortures.

    And I truly suspect Tony will throw her butt under the bus if she keeps up this “I was wronged!” act much longer.

  28. Str8Shooter says:

    In other news: Teri Hatcher will be getting a reality show of how she picked up the pieces after the drycleaner lost her sweater.

  29. machiavelli says:

    262 channels and nothing to watch, in my case! PLEASE make them go away! Bring on the dramas, the comedies….Even news is taken over by dumb entertainment news. Why do we tolerate this? Who are the people who keep watching these shows and keeping them alive?

  30. JRenee says:

    15, 14, 13,12….seriously, are her 15 minutes up yet? She does not have the savvy required to turn the divorce into more roles etc. She lost major cred with the way the annoucement was leaked/denied/announced.

  31. brin says:

    *raises hand sheepishly*

    Just kidding…even I wouldn’t watch this.

  32. TeeTee says:

    not surprised her and Kim K are close buds, smdh!

    will NOT be watching, no damn thanks.

  33. TeeTee says:

    uhhhh, I just scrolled back up and why does she keep posing w/her leg up like that???

    these chicks are super fake, wowww

    she looks like a damn fool, LOL
    she can kiss what lil career she has–Goodbye!


  34. Tia C says:

    OMG, who the F would want to watch that?! Does anyone care about her anymore? She was hot like 5-6 years ago, but she has cooled off. I used to like her, but she totally turned me off when she went all Bridezilla about her stupid wedding to Tony Parker. Now with the divorce a mere 3 years later, she just looks like a complete and total ass.

  35. guesty says:

    no thxs.

  36. crtb says:

    Don’t do it Eva!!!

  37. coconut says:

    that is the most hideous dress!!!

  38. LolaBella says:

    Will Not Watch.

    Also she looks ridiculous in that tiny black dress while posing like a flamingo.

  39. she's gross says:

    she dumped tony because she thinks she can do better but she will quickly see how irrelevant she is. shallow, vain and delusional sums her up imo. spare me these clueless one trick ponies

  40. dorothy says:

    Why? Is anyone really interested? What is it with TV programmers…do they really think that every celebrity should have a reality show? Here’s an idea…come up with an original TV show that doesn’t involve “reality”.

  41. dragonlady sakura says:

    Ugh, I’d rather watch Lisa VanderPumps dog Giggy get its own series.

  42. Nanz says:

    What a brave and courageous woman to go on television to air her divorce. Bitch, please! You know, I never even paid attention to this actress (or DH) or her relationship until the divorce news broke. Not a great first impression. I think she’s damaging her brand.

    Ps – Only a C (falling to D) -lister would sign up for this shiz. Talented celebs (and confident ones) don’t need cameras following them all the time.

  43. Kim says:

    She is the most self-overexposed celeb next to Brooke Shields as far as doing anything to stay in public eye. She would show up to see a stamp being put on an envelope if it meant she would be pictured in the tabloids.

    Dragon lady – I agree. Id rather watch him peeing all day than watch Eva for 1 second.

  44. Hakura says:

    I can’t believe people are still *watching* this crap enough for them to continue making them.

    No one gives a flying fuck what you had for breakfast today, what you did at your photoshoot, how you’re dealing with the end of your marriage, that you’re writing a book about absolutely nothing, are recording an album (just because, a-la Kim Kardashian), what ‘every day’ routine activities you do, just like the rest of us ‘small folk’.

    It’s ALL been done before, I’m not trying to sound insensitive to the end of the marriage thing, but GOD. ENOUGH already.

  45. JenJen says:

    I love Eva (surprised by her outfit with her butt hanging out). I always thought she was classy but a reality show while she is supposed to be devasted, sounds very fishy to me.
