Eva Longoria: I have to keep busy

Eva Longoria says the word "lazy" isn't in her vocabulary.

The former Desperate Housewives star revealed: "There are days when I relax but it won't be a full day. It usually means I'm gonna clean out my closet. That's relaxing for me. Or I'm gonna cook a full meal for my family and friends."

Eva, 37, insists she has no problem juggling various projects.

"I always say there's more time in the day than you think. You waste a lot of time that you don't realise," she said. "When I was on Desperate Housewives, I learned two languages. I went back to school for my master's degree, I was married (to San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker) and flying back and forth (between Los Angeles and Texas). You have time."

The actress has just wrapped up filming on Frontera, alongside Ed Harris and Michael Pena. She is also an executive producer on two upcoming TV shows.

On Ready For Love, a reality dating show that will air on NBC, three matchmakers help three men find love, and Eva handpicked each of the three eligible guys.

They're "not only handsome and successful, but generous, kind and sweet human beings", she said. "They'll forever be friends in my life."

She's also one of the executive producers of Devious Maids, alongside Desperate Housewives creator Mark Cherry. Based on a Mexican series, it follows four maids who work in Beverly Hills but dream of their own success. The show will air on Lifetime.

While she's enjoying TV production, Eva said: "I love the medium of television. I'll definitely be back. I'll definitely come back one day."
