The Rally for Kids Scavenger Cup in support of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and PADRES Contra el Cancer brought Eva Longoria and friends out to the red carpet in L.A on Tuesday. The press conference for the Rally for Kids fundraiser revealed a very different side of the sexy Housewife.
Eva is not just a pretty face; she’s a very giving actress and she has even established her own charity, Eva’s Heroes which helps developmentally disabled children.
Ms. Longoria didn’t become BFFs with POTP or even speak with us, but I wanted to keep my ‘So and so talks to Pop on the Pop’ titles going. Eva’s publicist is a pit bull and she wouldn’t allow us to speak to her. She only wanted Eva to talk to Extra TV, television shows and People and Us Weekly magazine. I had my charity-based questions all ready for TV Guide’s Sexiest Female on T.V., but I was not permitted to ask any of ’em.
Its been claimed that Eva is 5’2, but she was in major heels and she still looked very vertically challeneged. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was around 5’0. The camera is so deceiving; Eva is also so petite and I doubt she even weighs 100 pounds. She said that a Children’s hospital visit seven years ago has prompted her to do her part to contribute.
Her publicist only allowed everyone (including Extra TV) to ask her about the charity and the charity event only! I really respect that about Ms. Longoria. She is that passionate about the causes she supports.
Eva said, “PADRES has been around for 20 years, I’ve been the spokesperson for five and I just love the work that they do to help families navigate through these horrible horrible time in their lives. I got all my friends here for the scavenger hunt because it’s actually one of the fun fundraising events. I created Eva’s Heroes. We have a poker tournament coming up in September.
We’ve got 33 celebrities lending their times and their names.“
One reporter seemed to be interested in Eva’s workouts and favorite makeup. An agitated Eva ended the interview when one reporter asked her about her workout. Eva repeated the question and gave her a look so that she would feel like an ass. Well done! But if you must know, Eva did tell someone else – also focused on the wrong topics – that she “mostly” diets and doesn’t do much exercise.
Have a great weekend, all! We’re working on a new site layout which may take weeks and you may notice that POTP looks a little different. We’re changing it up, we’re switching servers to eliminate errors and big things are ahead. I’ve gotta go right now cause it has been a bit stressful but that’s what the weekends are for. 🙂
