On Monday night, NBC aired a sneak peek episode of the new comedy from Eva Longoria and her team, Telenovela, which takes a look at the behind-the-scenes of a spanish-speaking sudser.  It was fun romp reminiscent of the motion picture Soap Dish with a new twist.  Any soap opera fan, or televnovela fan, would appreciate the nods to some of the infamous soap opera staples and backstage drama!

Series star and EP, Longoria also gave fans extra incentive to check out the show when it bows on January 4th  when she announced via Twitter, that her former Desperate Housewives husband and love-interest Ricardo Chavira will be making a guest-star on the comedy!

Desperate Housewives fan, recall Ricardo and Eva, played Carlos and Gabrielle Solis on the ABC primetime series.  Longoria tweet exclaimed: “@RicardoAChavira will be on an episode! He’s amazing and still my first love!”

Meanwhile, if you caught last night’s episode, one of the highlights feature Longoria’s, spanish soap opera superstar Ana Sofia, going through her script while a perky over-enthusiastic young actress joins in the scene, while Ana Sofia’s ex-husband who is now back on the telenovela exclaims (while perusing the script) “You’re not playing my love interest – you’re playing my love interest’s mom!”

Next, Ana Sofia had a massive soap opera diva meltdown captured by adoring and shocked fans! Watch the hilarity in the clip after the jump!

Then let us know, if you caught Telenovela last night, and your thoughts on the series?  Excited to hear Ricardo and Eva will reteam again for an episode?  Comment below!

    hey Timmm..
    The soaps have been made fun of/spoofed since forever,, SNL did it best..
    It is bad advertising for the real soaps.. I mean, c’mon! lol

    It comes off as a slapstick soap ahaaa!


    Timmm replied

    I realize that BUT some of the best actors are on daytime and I guess they are at fault because of the choices they made BUT I respect them!

    I really enjoyed it. I had forgotten how much fun Eva Longoria can be when she acts a little crazy! It was good, silly entertainment.
