Eva Longoria Hosts Prestigious Latin Awards Show!

Eva Longoria is the host for the 2006 ALMA Awards, which taped last night in Los Angeles. The ALMA Awards were created in 1995 to promote fair, accurate, and balanced portrayals of Latinos in television, film, and music. The awards honor Latino performers for their outstanding artistic achievement, impact, and enhancement of the image of Latinos.

Eva said she was honored to be asked to host and produce this important event since she is a past recipient of an ALMA Award. The show airs on ABC on June 5th!

Eva is no stranger to awards' stages...she got her first taste of Hollywood when she appeared on the IMTA stage in 1999 when she competed as a model and actor as part of the IMTA Convention. Eva received 38 callbacks and signed with a theatrical agent who got her her first auditions. Eva landed the role of Isabella on The Young and The Restless and of course, she plays Gabrielle on the smash hit Desperate Housewives.
