Former "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria took to Twitter to say that a Latin Post article announcing her involvement in a telenova gig on Televisa is fake.
The Latin Post reported on New Year's Eve that Longoria
was cast as the mother of former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant William Levy in the telenova "Cuna de Lobos." The article quoted Longoria saying: "I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing project, because working in Spanish and connecting to that audience it's something that I've always wanted to do."

Longoria, 38, said on Twitter, though, that the story is not true and the quote was made up.
After Longoria's tweet, the Latin Post added a correction at the top of the story that said: "According to Longoria herself, the original source from the Latin Times quoted in this story is mistaken. Latin Post was not responsible for the initial inaccuracies but simply quoted what was thought to be a reputable source. While the rumor quoted in this story has proved to be false, the article remains below for reference."
That brought a second tweet from Longoria Thursday, calling out the story's writer Melissa Castellanos.
Longoria has been dating Televisa president Jose "Pepe" Baston, 45, according to E! News.
Televisa is Latin America's largest media company.
The couple was spotted at the Museo Jumex Opening dinner at Casa De La Bola in Mexico City in November.
"He's been sweeping her off her feet and courting her like a proper gentleman," a source told People magazine in November.
