Eva Longoria Denies Telenovela Drama Rumors
Eva Longoria recently took to Twitter to set the record straight on the new rumors surrounding her. According to the Latin Times, Longoria has been cast to three different Latin soap operas on Televisa.
“Longoria has signed an exclusive contract with Televisa, locking her for three telenovelas starting with Cuna de Lobos, where she will play the infamous Catalina Creel. The production finally came true after Por Derecho De Sangre, what was supposed to be the remake, proved to be a major flop after the pilot wasn’t selected, but the network now hopes that with Eva on board, Cuna de Lobos will step up to the original 80’s classic,” the Latin Times wrote.
They even included a fake quote from Longoria that said she was excited to work on this project. “I’m thrilled to be a part of this amazing project, because working in Spanish and connecting to that audience it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve already started taking Spanish lessons with a speech coach to perfect my accent and portray this role that María Rubio made immortal, and I couldn’t be any happier,” Longoria allegedly said.
Apparently, none of this is true. Longoria took to Twitter to slam these rumors, and said she couldn’t believe that they were able make up lies and publish them. “How can people make stuff up and print it? Not one word of this is true! Even has fake quotes from me!” she tweeted.

While the Latin Times did not remove the article, they did issue an update saying that they thought they had a reputable source for the quote and information.
According to Longoria herself, the original source from the Latin Times quoted in this story is mistaken. Latin Post was not responsible for the initial inaccuracies but simply quoted what was thought to be a reputable source. While the rumor quoted in this story has proved to be false, the article remains below for reference.
