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!”

Next, Ana Sofia had a massive soap opera diva meltdown captured by adoring and shocked fans! Watch the hilarity in the clip after the jump!

Then let us know, if you caught Telenovela last night, and your thoughts on the series?  Excited to hear Ricardo and Eva will reteam again for an episode?  Comment below!

I caught a few minutes last night and recorded it to watch later. It did remind me of Soap Dish, which was hilarious so I expect a lot of laughs!

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.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

ESPN Sports Personality and ‘General Hospital’ Guest Star, Stephen A. Smith Reveals COVID-19 Nearly Took His Life

In a harrowing account of coming down with Covid-19, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, who also has a recurring role on General Hospital as Brick, revealed his battle over the holidays that led to him being hospitalized because of the severity of his symptoms.

On Monday, Smith returned to his co-hosting gig on ESPN’s First Take and it was there he shared what happened during his breakthrough case of Covid.  Stephen had been fully vaccinated. Smith said that he had tested positive late in December and wound up in the hospital with pneumonia in both lungs over New Years.

Stephen A. discussed the details, expressing:  “I had 103 degree fever every night. Woke up with chills and a pool of sweat. Headaches were massive. Coughing profusely. And it got to a point where right before New Year’s Eve, I was in the hospital into New Year’s Day. That’s how I brought in the New Year.”

He went on to say about contracting Covid-19: “For me personally, it hit me differently. (Doctors) told me, had I not been vaccinated, I wouldn’t be here. That’s how bad I was. I had pneumonia in both lungs. My liver was bad, and it ravaged me to the point where even now I have to monitor my volume, get to the gym every day … I’m still not 100% with my lungs, but I’m Covid negative … I’m on the road to recovery.”

On a happier note, Smith shared how glad he was to be back at work after testing negative: “I’m ecstatic to be back. I’ve missed being at work. I’ve used more sick days in the last month than I’ve used in my 28-year career in this business.  And I can’t tell you how lucky and sincerely blessed I am to be sitting here with you guys today because two-and-a-half, three weeks ago, I didn’t know if I was gonna make it.”

So, glad to know Stephen A. is on the mend from a very scary bout with Covid? Share your thoughts in the comment section
