One of the leading ladies of “Desperate Housewives” is on the mend.
Eva Longoria hurt herself on set of the ABC show … while dancing. The actress revealed the unfortunate twist on Twitter.
“Resting on set putting ice on foot, hurt it dancing on set,” Longoria wrote. She also posted a photo of herself in her dressing room showing the injury.
The actress did not include any further details on how exactly she sustained the injury, or why she was dancing (in character for a scene? goofing around between takes? practicing to be the next “Dancing” ABC star?)
Chances are she was not rejoicing over the “Desperate” death of a major character on Sunday’s episode, which shot a jolt of surprise into longtime fans (unless you are following the prime-time drama’s real-life soap opera playing out in an L.A. court, which spoiled the plotline on the witness stand last week).
Longoria, 36, is also nursing a fractured relationship. The actress recently split with boyfriend Eduardo Cruz, her rebound man after her divorce last year from NBA star Tony Parker.
“Desperate Housewives” is winding down the drama on Wisteria Lane, as the show, now in its eighth and final season, coasts into its final episodes. The two-hour series finale airs Sunday, May 13 on ABC.
