Saturday Night Live (SNL) – Eva Longoria

SNL 2005On November 19th, “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria hosted NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” with musical guest Korn. In a total of nine segments (coincidence?) she made a strong comedic debut on what is the longest-running entertainment comedy show in America. As a mohican-haired dance music star “Ms. Drama Martinez” in Keenan’s “MTV4 Deep House Dish,” she turned a simple sketch into some big laughs. Perhaps the most memorable sketch however was when she poked fun at the infamous Vanity Fair Desperate Housewives cover shoot spat by playing a scene-stealing Teri Hatcher.

Named one of “People’s 50 Most Beautiful People” and the Hottest Woman in the World on Maxim’s 2005 annual “Hot 100 List” Eva Longoria will soon be seen in the feature films “Harsh Times” with Christian Bale and “The Sentinel” with Michael Douglas. In this Saturday Night Live photo, Eva Longoria is wearing Alex Woo’s No. 9 necklace from the Little Numbers Collection that started her No. 9 craze for boyfriend San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker.
