Eva Longoria, one of the most beautiful roses to ever come from San Antonio, Texas, is also a big producer of live comedy in Los Angeles. Her show, "Hot Tamales" which is hosted by show creator and host Kiki Melendez, is coming back to the World Famous Comedy Store in Los Angeles on March 29th.
"Hot Tamales Live" premiered April 2002 to a sold out crowd, and will feature Amy Anderson, Betsy Salkind, Retha Jones, Kira Soltanovich, Retta, Sandra Vals and the morning drive star of San Diego Jack FM radio, Monique Marvez, a comic who is also releasing her first book, described as a hilarious, heartwrenching memoir through Hay House, titled, "Not Skinny, Not Blonde."Amazon-order-Not-Skinny-Not-Blonde
Despite her busy "Desperate Housewives" filming schedule, Longoria is hands on with the line-up and promotion of her all-female, multi-cultural comedy revue which has been featured on E!, Access Hollywood, Extra, Insider, Univision, Telemundo, Fox, CBS NY, New York Daily News, Los Angeles Times.
In light of the recent news about her castmate from "Housewives," Longoria has also given strong support to her on-screen boytoy Jesse Metcalfe, who is in rehab addressing his problems.
TMZ.com reported that Longoria called Metcalfe, who is battling alcoholism, "the most put-together young actor you'll ever meet," adding that "he wants to be responsible and do the right thing. That's a brave thing and I support him 100 percent."
