Elizabeth Judina Longoria and Eva Longoria - The 6th Annual Eva's Heroes Celebrity Casino Night held at Eilan Hotel Resort and Spa - Inside - San Antonio, California, United States - Sunday 13th October 2013
After playing comical sidekicks in rom-coms like No Strings Attached and What Happens in Vegas, Lake Bell emerges as a rising-star filmmaker with the smartest, funniest comedy of the year. Winner of the screenwriting award at Sundance, this script is painfully hilarious, drawing on the characters' personalities to take us into a previously unseen side of the movie industry. It's also a rare Hollywood movie that refuses to shy away from anything.
We're talking about voiceover artists here, specifically those who provide the rumbling commentary for movie trailers. The late Don LaFountaine was the voice behind all of those iconic "In a world..." trailers, and now a studio wants to revive them for a new epic quadrilogy. The top contender for the job is Sam (Melamed), a veteran who decides to let his protege, the egotistical womaniser Gustav (Marino), have the job. Then Sam's voice-coach daughter Carol (Bell) throws her hat in the ring, which is unthinkable because a woman has never narrated this kind of trailer. She prepares for the audition with the help of a love-struck sound engineer (Martin), but is distracted by issues between her sister and brother-in-law (Watkins and Corddry) and the fact that her dad's new girlfriend (Holden) is younger than she is.
Bell juggles all of these plot strands brilliantly as a writer, director and actor, generously giving her costars the most riotously funny dialog while Carol pings around between them. And since we see everything through her eyes, she emerges as a hugely engaging woman who is smart, skilled and also likeably flawed. Every performance is natural and amusing, with the kind of astutely witty dialog actors can really sink their teeth into. And there are some uproarious cameos along the way, including Offerman as a wry colleague, Davis as a studio head, Longoria as a vocal client and Diaz as the star of a Hunger Games-style saga.

Eva Longoria is snapped by paparazzi arriving at LAX with her new boyfriend Ernesto Arguello after a trip to Paris where Eva was shooting her new L'Oreal campaign.

The actress seems smitten with her new man, who isn't just a one-time reality contestant after all
Eva Longoria is back off the market, with the actress now tied up with Miami-based entrepreneur Ernesto Arguello. Rumours have been circulating for some months that she and Arguello had become an item, with People confirming the news on Thursday (July 4) this week.
Eva is back off the market... sorry men
The two met when Arguello was cast as one of the eligible bachelors on the short lived, Longoria-produced reality show Ready For Love and have remained on speaking terms ever since, with their romance eventually blossoming. Longoria confirmed the coupling with People herself, releasing a statement that read; "I think that's why our relationship is so special – we truly started as friends - I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn't see!"

Lake Bell, who is usually cast as the quirky best friend in the majority of films she's in, comes into her own in this independent comedy about a struggling female voice over artist. She asks the question 'why are female voices so rarely used on film trailers?'
Lake Bell revealed in an interview with Yahoo! Movies that she was trying to address more than an inequality in the film industry with her new movie In A World, if we subconsciously associate power and a sense of omnipotence (which is needed for narrating film trailers) with manliness, thus culturally its preferable for us to hear a man narrating. Or that "resonance" makes it "easier and more authoritative to hear".
Another reason for doing the film is Bell's own strident stance on the power of speech and intonation she uses the insipid use of "sexy baby talk" as an example emphasising the importance of using your voice as it "is such a profound tool for communication and how you are perceived".
That all sounds terribly deep and philosophical yet that's not how it comes across in the trailer with Bell showing off her vocal skills (the Russian Star Wars impression is something to look out for).

The actress just completed her Master's degree.
Eva Longoria isn’t your typical celebrity – while most Hollywood dwellers spent the last three years milling around film sets and picking outfits for premieres, Longoria spent her time getting a Master’s degree. Ok, to be fair, there was probably a lot of outfit picking and premiere attending in there too, but still – balancing the responsibilities of an actress with those of a student probably wasn’t easy.
Longoria’s shiny new degree is in Chicano studies from Cal State Northridge, where she attended three whole years of classes, along with shooting for Desperate Housewives. The actress even did her coursework on set, according to TMZ. After the expert balancing act, Longoria has definitely earned her cap and gown – perhaps more so than a lot of her fellow graduates. Her new degree (following a Bachelor’s in kinesiology from Texas A&M) is in Chicano Studies, presumably because Longoria is of Mexican descent herself, with her final thesis being titled "Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers." "STEM" is an acronym for science, technology, engineering and math.
But the hectic schedule was far from over after the coursework was done. The actress reportedly attended a charity event at Cannes, right before boarding a 17-hour-flight to her graduation ceremony. "She does these things with such ease and grace," Fonda blogged, mentioning that Eva auctioned off a date with herself at Cannes.

Miranda Kerr's wardrobe malfunction was bad, but not as bad as Eva Longoria's.
Miranda Kerr didn't have the best of times during a photo-shoot for her Kora Organics skincare line in Miami earlier this month. The former Victoria's Secret Angel and wife of Orlando Bloom looked rather bashful after her top fell down, exposing both breasts to the nearby photographers. Doh!
Somewhat ironically, Kerr had posed nude for Kora Organics' first advertising campaign nearly four years ago, however, she kept her breasts covered with her left arm on that occasion. The businesswoman opened up about her cosmetics line in February, telling Us Weekly, "It's so rejuvenating for the skin and revitalizing.The rosy face oil at night is a must have for me because it puts back all the essential fatty acids back into the skin and it's anti-aging and super revitalizing," adding, "We've had such wonderful feedback.For my own skin I see how it helps me, but the amazing response we get back on a daily basis has been so lovely."
Since launching the brand in November 2009, Kerr's beauty giant has gone from strength to strength. "It was my idea, it was my vision, my concept, so I went and found a lab and started working with all the organic chemists," she said of Kora, which is now sold on Net-a-Porter.

Eva Longoria suffered a wardrobe malfunction on Saturday and made sure not to repeat it the following evening.
Eva Longoria suffered a wardrobe malfunction at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 18, 2013) though managed to have a pretty good laugh about the whole thing. The former Desperate Housewives actress stepped onto the red-carpet for the premiere of Jimmy P. Psychotherapy of a Plains Indians and accidentally flashed too much skin for waiting fans and photographers.
The 38-year-old had tugged up the bottom of her sea foam green Atelier Versace gown in order to avoid tripping while climbing the stairs of the theater. Unfortunately for Longoria, she was sans underwear and exposed her bottom half. The embarrassed actress quickly noticed mistake and pulled herself together to pose for photographs. She laughed off the incident the following night, "Here's my dress for tonight!" she wrote, alongside a photo of herself in a black gown. "No wardrobe malfunctions tonight!"

Eva Longoria appears to be running an open house for contestants on her show.
Err, well this has come straight out of leftfield. Eva Longoria is reportedly living with the Ready For Love bachelor Ernesto Arguello! Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.com that Ernesto - a successful architectural engineer - has been living at Eva's Los Angeles pad recently.
We also know that Eva and Ernesto have been hitting the town together and were spotted together at the Chateau Marmont on the Sunset Strip on Sunday night. They were together again on Monday, at Soho House. In a weird turn, Ernesto isn't the only guy from her dating show crashing at her house, singer Tim Lopez (From Plan White T's) has also moved in! What's going on!
Well, Longoria appears to have a reasonable explanation for it all, with sources saying several cast members from the TV show have been stopping over because they don't have anywhere to stay in Los Angeles. The former Desperate Housewives actress also took to Twitter to give a more direct response to the rumors. "Sorry @ernestoarguello is NOT dating me," she said.

What now for the actress?
U.S. network NBC has pulled Ready for Love from its schedule. The dating show, produced by Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria just wasn’t pulling in the views, and the network decided to pull the plug.
“It's so hard to date anybody today,' Eva told NBC before the show aired. “This show puts it into a format that people are using today. Matchmakers. The Internet. Scouring the earth for that perfect match. I think people will take away inspiration, motivation to find their match, she added. “The hopeless romantic in themselves to go out and find their compatible one.” The show, for its two episodes anyway, was hosted by Bill and Giuliana Rancic. “This show is going to do for the dating show genre what The Voice did for the music show genre,” Rancic said. “I truly believe that it’s going to change the whole landscape of these types of programmes.” His wife Giuliana added: “You almost want it to be opposite of what these dating shows are doing, because a lot of that stuff tends to be a train wreck.”

Former desperate housewife is set to judge
Eva Longoria will judge the documentary and student short film competitions when the New York film festival, Tribeca, hits the U.K. Abigail Breslin, Danny Strong and celebrity chef Bobby Flay will co-judge.
“We are delighted to welcome such an illustrious group of individuals to the Tribeca jury,” said Jane Rosenthal, who co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival. Robert DeNiro, added: “We look forward to their expert perspective on the films and talent in our program and the dialogue that emerges from the process.” De Niro had plenty to say, and, as one of the lead judges of the festival, we can only hope he’s this animated come the season. "American audiences have really enjoyed being able to participate in the festival experience, not just in New York but from all over the country. We are looking forward to bringing these films to homes across the UK." The Tribeca Film Festival opens on April 17 until the 28th of the month.

Daniella Moyles' wardrobe malfunction might go down as one of the most ridiculous and amusing in history. The Irish model accidentally exposed her right breast at The Erics entertainment awards in Dublin last night (January 17, 2013), smiling happily for the cameras without realising the photographers were getting an eyeful!
Daniella, 24, was wearing a smart red blazer though had nothing underneath. When the jacket slipped down...well, you know what happened. She later told a local newspaper, "Obviously it's embarrassing but I feel really bad for the Irish designer Sarah O'Neill because it's a beautiful top and now everybody's just focusing on the wardrobe malfunction." Yes they are Daniella, yes they are. The model claimed she didn't have time to pin everything in place before arriving at the bash as she had arrived directly from a modelling job. The Movie Show reporter added, "I'm usually really careful about stuff like this, but mistakes happen."
If you thought the Golden Globes' passed by with only minimal fashion disasters, than you were wrong. Ok, so Jessica Chastain's dress was pretty horrible, and Jennifer Lawrence and Zooey Deschanel wore similar outfits, but on reflection, it appears Eva Longoria took home the prize for biggest wardrobe blunder of the evening.
Eagle eyed commentators - specifically the UK's Sun newspaper - noticed that as Longoria posed for red-carpet photographs in her elegant Emilio Pucci creation, the dress had gaped open! The Desperate Housewife unwittingly became the centre of attention as her male guest looked on in horror. The actress was unaware of the malfunction, though was probably a little red-faced after seeing the snaps the following morning.
The remains of the late singer Jenni Rivera have been identified and returned to her family, following her death in a plane crash on sunday, CNN have reported.
The Spanish-American starlet was flying from the northern city of Monterrey on her way to Toluca with six others, all members of her touring party, when her plane crashed shortly after take-off. Although officials were reluctant to consider her death at first, their fears were realised later through the week when her remains were discovered and identified by her three brothers Lupillo, Juan and Gustavo.
Details on the crash are still a little sketchy, with new information into the ill-fated flight Rivera was on being released with each passing day. According to Mexican officials, her plane plunged from around 28,000 feet only a short while after take-off, but as of yet no explanation has been given as to what may have cause the crash.

The ceremony was held at the private estate of Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis, with a number of famous faces showing up to the exchanging of nuptials, with Eva Longoria among the guests, Extra were the first to report.
The pair have been together since 2008, after meeting two years earlier on Broadway when the two featured in A Chorus Line. Mario popped the question late last year on December 31, 2011, whilst on vacation in Ixtapa, Mexico. The two already have a daughter together, 2-year-old Gia.

Brick, McQueen and Lincoln Oodie are three trigger-happy redneck brothers who work for a corrupt sheriff of their town, taking down criminals in unlawful ways. After accidentally taking out the residents at an address that turns out to be wrong, they are offered $25,000 by Celeste Martin who asks them to retrieve her kidnapped handicapped godson Rob from her violent ex-husband Carlos who believes she is dead. He killed Rob's parents and had Celeste shot when he discovered he had a large sum of money in a trust that matured when he hit 18. The Oodies think of their mission as a simple smash and grab but things become less easy when Carlos sets a gang of gorgeous but deadly women on them, as well as a group of Federal agents and various other psychopaths hell bent on killing the brothers. While previously seeking fun in lawless battles to the death, the Oodie outlaws soon find themselves questioning themselves and their careers as they do everything in their power to protect the boy from harm, and not just for their own gain.

Eva Longoria's tattoo is history. The former Desperate Housewives star had ex-husband Tony Parker's jersey number (NINE) inked on her back, though it's since been removed, leaving a nasty looking red blotch.
The actress has actually removed all trace of Parker from her body, beginning a series of laser treatments in January to erase the jersey number, a wedding date on her wrist, and Tony's initials (said to be inked on a private, undisclosed part of the body). The removal has taken multiple sessions spaced out over several months, though Longoria gave photographers the first post-laser glimpse while out in Beverly Hills this week. The 37-year-old's 'NINE' tattoo has been completely erased - the nasty red mark will no doubt fade in the coming months. The couple's divorce was finalized in Texas on January 28, 2011.

Two-and-a-Half Men is the show that forks out the most for its lead actors; last year Charlie Sheen topped Forbes' list of TV's Highest-Paid TV Actors list with $40m and this year its new lead Ashton Kutcher has taken over the prestigious spot, albeit with a decidedly smaller sum of just $26m.
Hugh Laurie for his role in 'House' and Ray Romano, for a now cancelled 'Men of a Certain Age' were runners up to Kutcher, each raking in $18m. We'd all be happy to plum for second place in this race. Aside from Laurie, it was entirely sitcom actors that scored the bigtime in this list, with stars of 30 Rock, Last Man Standing, Men, and The Big Bang Theory - Alec Baldwin, family favourite Tim Allen, Jon Cryer, and Jim Parsons and Alan Galecki, respectively, all managing to make it into the top ten.
However, as much as it's always great to celebrate in the successes of others, for women in the equivalent category, financial success seems to not be quite so easy. Sophia Vergara from Modern Family is this year's female top earner, but at just (ha! just?) $19m, she's lagging behind Kutcher by $7m! Plus, the genres in which these women find their careers is far more varied than men - still including comedy, but also drama, reality and medical dramas all find their way into the list. Desperate Housewives is one show that truly shows women multitasking, and Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria, two stars of the show, both appear in the top ten. Although men still earn more than women, it seems the ladies can take the prize for versatility.
