On Monday night, NBC aired a sneak peek episode of the new comedy from Eva Longoria and her team, Telenovela, which takes a look at the behind-the-scenes of a spanish-speaking sudser.  It was fun romp reminiscent of the motion picture Soap Dish with a new twist.  Any soap opera fan, or televnovela fan, would appreciate the nods to some of the infamous soap opera staples and backstage drama!

Series star and EP, Longoria also gave fans extra incentive to check out the show when it bows on January 4th  when she announced via Twitter, that her former Desperate Housewives husband and love-interest Ricardo Chavira will be making a guest-star on the comedy!

Desperate Housewives fan, recall Ricardo and Eva, played Carlos and Gabrielle Solis on the ABC primetime series.  Longoria tweet exclaimed: “@RicardoAChavira will be on an episode! He’s amazing and still my first love!”

Meanwhile, if you caught last night’s episode, one of the highlights feature Longoria’s, spanish soap opera superstar Ana Sofia, going through her script while a perky over-enthusiastic young actress joins in the scene, while Ana Sofia’s ex-husband who is now back on the telenovela exclaims (while perusing the script) “You’re not playing my love interest – you’re playing my love interest’s mom!”

I really enjoyed it. I had forgotten how much fun Eva Longoria can be when she acts a little crazy! It was good, silly entertainment.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
