Eva Longoria Is Just as Obsessed with Tacos as You Are

Eva Longoria knows what she likes.

On Monday, the Telenovela actress, 40, did a Twitter Q&A with fans, chatting about everything from Desperate Housewives memories to the foods she can’t live without.

“My favorite food is Mexican food. Anything Mexican. Tacos, guacamole, enchiladas, tacos, tacos…,” she said. “I like cooking it, too.”

Unsurprisingly, when asked if she could live anywhere else in the world, Longoria chose Mexico City, though her response had less to do with tacos and more to do with her fiancé, José Antonio Baston, who proposed to her in December 2015.

“I would live in Mexico City, because that’s where my future husband is. Or Miami, because that’s where he is also,” she said. “But my work is in L.A., so I have to be based in L.A. But if work were not an option, definitely anywhere he is.”

Aside from Mexico, Longoria’s favorite travel destinations are Bora Bora and Sydney, Australia.

The most compelling part of the Q&A? When a Twitter user asked her the first thing she does in the morning.

“Pee,” she said. “I do! I get up and pee. Well, actually, I do the sign of the cross, and thank god for another day. Then I pee.”

Whenever the actress doesn’t have access to tacos, she relies on her life philosophy to keep her motivated.

“I’m an optimist. I love life. You only get one shot, so you just try to live to the fullest.”

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I’ll never forget the interview I read when she said it was hard for her to break into the industry because she was too pretty for most roles. This irrelevant 40 year old going on her third marriage needs to go away. Perhaps humble herself to the fact that she isn’t “all that” as she perceives herself to be, then go away.
