Former The Young and the Restless star Eva Longoria (ex-Isabella Brana) has been making headlines with her latest series Telenovela, but soap fans' attention was pulled front and center during her Late Night interview with Seth Meyers on Tuesday.
Considering the premise of Telenovela has Longoria playing an actress on a Spanish soap opera, the world of daytime took center stage during her segment. "When I got one line on General Hospital, my mom acted like I had won an Oscar. 'You made it! You made it!' I was like, 'It's one line, Mom,'" she told Meyers, later joking that the line may have even been just a grunt.
Meyers noted that a three-year-run on Y&R must have opened the door for many crazy things to happen. "So many crazy things!" the actress conceded. "Marc Cherry [the creator of Desperate Housewives] says the difference between daytime and nighttime soaps is in the daytime, the men are the divas. Yeah, the men were crazy!"
Case in point? Longoria shared the story of a particularly aggravating Y&R costar who kept changing a line on purpose to mess up her cue -- which got her in trouble with the director. "The men could do no wrong!" she asserted before adding that the more time you spend on a soap opera, the more soap-like your real life becomes.
