Creator of Desperate Housewives has written a letter in defence of Felicity Huffman amid her college admissions scandal case, according to Us Weekly.

Marc Cherry is one of 27 people who have written letters backing up the actress, detailing how one Desperate Housewives star had 'big behavioural problems' and caused tension on-set among the cast.

We're not entirely sure how pointing out another actress's behavioural issues excuses Huffman's illegal scheme to doctor her daughter's university entrance exams, but whatever…

Cherry’s letter detailed how one actress was obnoxious and rude to cast members but 56-year-old Huffman refused to stoop down to her level.

The hit show also starred Eva Longoria, Terri Hatcher, Marcia Cross and Nicollette Sheridan, and ran from 2004 until 2012.

The showrunner wrote about the unnamed actress:

"She was a big star with some big behavioral problems. Everyone tried their hardest to get along with this woman over the course of the show. It was impossible."

57-year-old Cherry praised the way Huffman handled the actress’ troublesome attitude as a testament to her character.

"Things went from bad to worse. Felicity still insisted on saying “Good morning” to this actress, even though she knew she wouldn’t get a response," he claimed.

"I found out about this and asked Felicity about it. She smiled and said, “Just because that woman’s determined to be rude, doesn’t mean she can keep me from being polite”."

Cherry's statement comes after Eva Longoria wrote a letter on Huffman’s behalf claiming she was ‘bullied’ and ‘tortured’ by a colleague on set. (It's rumoured to be Teri Hatcher).

 The John Wick actress wrote:

"There was a time I was being bullied at work by a co-worker. I dreaded the days I had to work with that person because it was pure torture. Until one day, Felicity told the bully, “enough” and it all stopped."

She added: "Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone. ‘I know I would not have survived those 10 years if it wasn’t for the friendship of Felicity."

Huffman pleaded guilty in May to paying $15,000 for someone else to sit her daughter’s university entrance exams, and is now awaiting sentencing.

Two of the iconic Spice Girls reunited on the red carpet last night – Victoria and Mel C.

Victoria Beckham shared a snapshot with her old friend, raving about her musical performance last night.

Both dawned gorgeous black dresses. Victoria wore an elegant long gown that hugged her small frame in a flattering way.

And Mel C chose a more performance-worthy number with puffy shoulders and shimmering sparkles.

“So proud of Melanie,” the mum wrote. “Fantastic performance tonight!”

She also added the hashtags #friendshipneverends and #girlpower.

The two were attending Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Gala and clearly wanted to show that they are still close despite recent rumours.

Their sensational 90s pop band is reportedly reuniting for a 2019 tour, but Victoria doesn’t wish to be the fifth wheel this time.

The model is the only former member to not be joining the reunion, choosing to focus on her fashion business instead.

However, it appears that the singers are not holding it against her.

It was important to Victoria that she showed the two remained on good terms.


A post shared by The Spice Girls Blog (@thespicegirlsblog) on

She showed ample support for her long-time friend, also sharing videos of her performance on her Instagram story.

Calling her performance “amazing”, Victoria sang along to the band’s hit single 2 Become 1.

We are sad that Posh Spice won’t be joining the reunion tour but are glad that her decision hasn’t affected her relationship with the rest of the girls.



Eva Longoria's son is the cutest baby we've ever seen.

Now at four-months-old, little Santiago is looking more like his mama every day.

The mum took to Instagram to pen her boy a sweet birthday message, reflecting on the day she met him for the first time.


A post shared by Eva Longoria Baston (@evalongoria) on

“My little angel is four-months-old today! It’s going by too fast!” she wrote.

“I still look at Santi and wonder how my body created and nourished this little bundle of love! Truly a miracle!

“From the moment he was placed in my arms, I knew no love like this before. Happy four-month Birthday mi Santi precioso!!!”

The doting mother shared her message with photos of her happy Santi.

He is laying on his colourful play mat in a onesie decorated with bikes, trains, and cars. His big brown eyes are looking up at his mum with so much love.

All smiles and sticking out his tongue cheekily, the boy looks truly content in the photos.

Many parents have commented on the actress’ post, saying how cute he looks.

“Looks just like you, Eva”, recognised one mum.

“He’s so precious”, said another.

The Desperate Housewives star welcomed her son into the world in June, choosing the adorable name of Santiago Enrique Bastón.

Although he is her first child, being a mum is nothing new to Eva, for she spends time parenting her husband José's three children as well.

So, tiny Santi gets to play with his with his older siblings as he grows more and more each day.

Happy four-month-birthday, Santiago! We hope have the best day with your mum.


Eva Longoria Bastón is pregnant with her first child, a boy, the actress' rep confirmed to People

The 42-year-old expecting mum still has a while to go until her little bundle of joy arrives, as she is just four months along in her pregnancy.

Last October, the silver screen vixen told E! News that she would welcome motherhood, saying, "If it’s meant to be, it would be a blessing."

It seems her blessing has come! She and husband José Antonio 'Pepe' Bastón must be ecstatic.

The former Desperate Housewives star and her 49-year-old hubby married in Mexico in May 2016. 

The dad-to-be is president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company.

They certainly make a power couple!

Eva was previously married to actor Tyler Christopher and later, NBA player Tony Parker in 2011. 

"When Pepe and I met, I said I didn't ever want to get married again," the Golden Globe-nominated actress explained last year. "He said, 'Great, me neither.' And here we are!"

José, or Pepe, has two children from a previous marriage: daughter Tali, 21, and twins Jose and Mariana, 13. Eva seems to love being a stepmum, so we're sure motherhood will be a piece of cake for her.

Congratulations to Eva and José on their growing family!


Eva Longoria's wardrobe in Desperate Housewives was something we all envied (mainly because it was all Gucci dresses and Hermés handbags).

But we have say, her post-DH style is better than ever. She oozes glamour, with hints of casual-cool no matter where she steps out and she's certainly on top of the style charts in SHEmazing HQ!

So it was to our delight to find out that she has just launched her own clothing line, and likes to call it "from work to wine." 

We like the way she's thinking!

The Eva Longoria Collection, exclusively at The Limited, is everything you need for any occasion. We know that sounds like a stretch, but seriously, there's jeans, dresses, shirts, blazers, skirts, t-shirts and more.

She told InStyle: "I think so many women want a versatile wardrobe without the price tag, so a lot of these dresses and outfits you can wear to work and then take off the jacket and now it's a sexy dress.

"I think that's important, for women to be able to mix and match things."

We hear ya, Eva! Who else is forever debating what to wear to after-work drinks?!

The collection lands online on August 15, and don't worry, we already checked if they ship  to Ireland.



For years actress Eva Longoria has stunned with her style and beauty on the red carpet, but what did she look like before becoming one of Hollywood’s most recognisable faces?

Well – as her latest Throwback Thursday snap has revealed – she looked pretty much the same as she does today.

The star – who recently married businessman José Bastón – has taken to Instagram to share her first ever headshot with fans and while the exact date of the image has yet to be confirmed, it looks like Eva hasn’t aged a day since it was taken.

The 41-year-old celeb captioned the share: “#TBT Thanks @evajaclongoria for bringing this back!  Can anyone guess how old I am in this pic?! #FirstHeadshotEver #WhatUpWithThePuffyHair #MyNaturalHairColorJetBlack.”

Eva’s first big role came in 2001 when she played Isabella in an American soap called The Young and the Restless.

However she is now best known for her role as Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives which she played from 2004 until 2012.



Former Desperate Housewives star, Eva Longoria, appeared on the red carpet yesterday just hours after arriving home from her dream honeymoon.

And the petite star – who recently married businessman José Bastón at a private ceremony in Mexico – had plenty to say about her big day.

She told E! News: “[It] was so magical.  We had so much fun as you can see from all the posts from everybody." 

"It was the funnest wedding I had ever been to.  I’m glad it was mine," she added.

The actress’s friend, Victoria Beckham, played a special part on the big day as she both designed the wedding dress and helped the bride into it before she walked down the isle.

But the newlywed revealed to E! that when she first asked the former Spice girl to design her dress, she was a little reluctant.

Eva explained: “[Victoria] was like, ‘I don’t do wedding dresses’ and I was like, ‘I don’t want a wedding dress.  I want a simple elegant beautiful dress’ and I couldn’t think of anyone who would do it better than Victoria.”

In the end not only did Victoria design the bride's figure hugging gown, she also created two other dresses which Eva wore over her wedding weekend – busy lady!

After the celebrations, the 41-year-old actress – who has been married twice before – honeymooned in Hong Kong, Cambodia and Thailand with her partner of three years, an experience she described as “magical”.

Fashionistas, rejoice!

Victoria Beckham has taken to social media to share some previously unseen candid photos from BFF Eva Longoria’s Mexican wedding, and we are all OVER them.

The behind the scene pics show the former Spice Girl helping the stunning bride into her wedding dress – a figure hugging white gown which Victoria herself designed.

A second image shows the designer helping a giggling Longoria into her shoes as she prepared to marry businessman, José Bastón, in a sunset ceremony which took place just over a week ago in the lakeside town Valle de Bravo.

In an interview with Hello! magazine, the former Desperate Housewives star explained just how big a role Victoria played in her big day.

She said: “I asked Victoria to do my dress because I wanted it to be special and made with love – and I knew that Victoria would make it with love.”

The newlywed also revealed that Victoria was one of her witnesses: “She signed the paper that says ‘I was here’ – so it was a Victoria Beckham wedding.”

The intimate ceremony was attended by a number of well-known guests including Ricky Martin, Mario Lopez and, of course, the Beckhams, who the bride befriended while David was playing for the LA Galaxy soccer team.

Eva, who has been married twice before, told Hello! that Victoria is one of her best friends and by the looks of those pics she really is.



Cheryl made a major statement when she stepped out with her new beau Liam Payne in Paris yesterday, yet it was behind the scenes that the singer had the most fun.

The star joined up with her BFF Eva Longoria and enjoyed playing face swap while at a glitzy party in Cannes.

The friends posed as their features were swapped around, and they actually looked very similar to each other.

Eva is heard saying on the video: "Amazing, I look so pretty."

With Cheryl adding: "We don't actually look that different."

Both of the women looked absolutely stunning on the night, and Eva captioned the funny video: "What you have all been waiting for! Me & @CherylOfficial face swapped! #Twins #LorealGirls (sic)"


From drafting her first book at home in her parents' spare room to being flown to New York to discuss her first film deal, it’s certainly been four years of extremes for Cork native Louise O’Neill.

After over a year working for ELLE magazine in the US, O’Neill moved home in September 2011 with a plan – to write her first novel. Just over a year later, she had a full first draft of Only Ever Yours under her belt, which went on to win her the Newcomer Of The Year Award at the Irish Book Awards in 2014.

Pausing during our interview to hug her mum goodbye (“She’s off to Thailand!”) it’s clear O’Neill still has strong roots at home in West Cork. But over the last twelve months her life has spiralled in a million different directions – most notably last September, when US film/TV studio Killer Content bought the rights to Only Ever Yours.

"They flew me first class to New York and threw me a party on a yacht with Eva Longoria. It was all very surreal," she recalls to SHEmazing! from her family home in Clonakilty, where she’s spending the night before travelling back to Dublin for a panel discussion at the Mountains to Sea Book Festival. 

"I could never have anticipated it when I first started writing. I was just thinking of the next thousand words."

While that undeniably huge level of success might be enough to keep some young authors going, O’Neill barely stopped for a minute before penning her second – and equally lauded – book, Asking For It, which threw up a whole new set of "firsts" for her.

Chief among those is the fact that she’s become something of an unintentional activist for consent and sexual violence issues in Ireland, largely due to the subject matter of Asking For It.

The story of a Leaving Cert student who has her life ripped apart after explicit images of her end up online has struck a chord with Irish readers, not just in the Young Adult sphere but everywhere else, too.

"Even early on, when I was researching the book, I realised that rape and consent were much bigger issues in Ireland than I had ever known," she recalls.

"Women were coming to me and telling stories, saying things like ‘Oh, I had an unpleasant sexual experience,’ or ‘I was drunk, I said I didn’t want to have sex but we did’… Things that made me think, ‘That sounds like the definition of rape to me.’"

And even now, O’Neill is still asked to advise, help or just to be a listening ear to countless readers.

"I get emails every single day from women sharing their experiences – survivors or people going through things right now that Asking For It has helped them to understand," she says.

"It’s just been this ripple effect from where I first started, at home in my parents' spare room in my PJs, on the laptop.

"It’s humbling and gratifying but it’s also terrifying… The main thing I try to do is to listen and to be there."

Despite the ever-blurring divide between, as she puts it, "artist and activist," O’Neill is still on track with her third book, which she hopes to have finished by early next year.

"I do feel off-kilter at the moment, but I have a blanket ban from June [2016] to January [2017], and that’s when I’ll stay at home and really get into the writing. I need that stability and normality."

While O’Neill says she’s too "superstitious" to discuss the plot of her third novel just yet, she’s already started speaking to women and crafting "the voice of my main character."

For now though, it’s back on the road – first to UCC later in the afternoon for a creative writing workshop, and onward to Dublin tomorrow.

"It never stops," she laughs. "But it’s great. It’s brilliant."

Louise O’Neill will be discussing Asking For It at Opsh’s Book Club next Monday, March 14 at The Button Factory, Dublin 2.

She’ll be joined by journalists Louise Bruton and Jeanne Sutton; and blogger Rosie Connolly.

Tickets for the event start at €15, with €5 of each ticket redeemable on Opsh.com. Dubray Books are also offering 25% off Asking For It for ticketholders ahead of the event – simply use the code OPSH at checkout.


Even though we will probably never go to a ball or award ceremony, a girl can still dream about wearing a floaty, silk dress and sparkly shoes.

Well, scratch the floaty dresses because last night's SAG Awards were all about being skin-tight, cut-out and sexy. 

Yep, the girls were out to impress on the red carpet last night, and while there were many style disasters (as always), these ladies got it just right.

Victoria Beckham and Eva Longoria have been friends for nearly more than a decade… and fashion was one of the things that brought them so close together.

So, it's no wonder that Vicky is going to design Eva's wedding dress for when she marries businessman Jose Antonio Baston, reports The Sun.

The former Spice Girl will create a "romantic, sexy, silk gown" for her actress friend.

The newspaper said that Victoria is already thinking of ideas for the dress, but that doesn't mean she is going to add them to her fashion line.

A spokesperson for VB's line said, "We have no plans to expand the business to include wedding dresses," so Eva's dress will be a once-off.

The pair first became friends when Victoria had to move over to America for David's football career. Speaking to Mail Online this year, Eva said of her relationship with Vics: 'We're best friends and have shared lots of life lessons together."

We're sure it's going to be the wedding dress of DREAMS. #Goals.
