Eva Longoria felt the need to take to Twitter to personally deny she will star in a telenovela (Spanish soap opera) for the Televisa channel.
The Latin Post reported that Longoria was cast in three different Spanish dramas for the network:
“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 report even includes a quote from Eva Longoria in which she allegedly says how excited she is to work in the telenovela.
“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.”
Well, apparently it’s all made up as Eva Longoria frustratedly denied both, the supposed casting on the soap opera, and her “comments.”
How can people make stuff up and print it? Not one word of this is true! Even has fake quotes from me! http://t.co/o3n3BX4DRK

She even called out the author of the article for her inaccuracies:

The Latin Post has since made a correction after the former Desperate Housewives star called them out by name on Twitter, and blames the original source of the report, which they say is the Latin Times.
No correction has been made to the Times report as of yet.
Eva Longoria, 38, is dating Televisa’s President, Jose Antonio Bastón, 45, who heads the largest media company in Latin America.
