Eva Longoria’s Takes To ‘The View’ To Share Her Thoughts On Immigration Reform And Sanctuary Cities

Eva Longoria appeared as a guest on ‘The View’ to discuss a variety of topics with the show’s hosts. Not one to hold back on serious subjects like immigration reform, Longoria spent much of the interview tackling many of the issues facing our our country today. Of course the conversation wasn’t entirely political, and by the end interview Longoria managed to get several laughs from the audience and the hosts. Check it out.

Longoria took the opportunity to discuss her experiences with immigration and border patrol.

Longoria called the immigration system “broken,” saying there were “a lot of moving pieces” which make it hard for anyone to understand how the process actually works.

Then Longoria told ‘The View’ panel her opinion on refugees that seek asylum in the U.S.

She brought up the point that many people, including those who arrive from Central America, leave their countries due to warlike conditions in their homeland. Longoria added, “This isn’t an issue of Democrats and Republicans […] for these people it’s an issue of life and death.”

She then turned her attention to President Trump’s approach to sanctuary cities.

Longoria told the audience she understands the U.S. is a nation of laws, and that these laws need to be protected. However, Longoria warned that “when you vilify an entire community” and defund a sanctuary city, you run the risk of hurting everyone — not just the few who are breaking rules — just to make a point.

‘The View’ then brought up something a little more light-hearted: the fact that IMDB lists her age online.

Longoria was asked what she thought about her age being listed on IMDB. Her response was classic Longoria: “it sucks.” After a few laughs from the audience, Longoria continued, “It doesn’t suck when you’re like 20, you’re like, ‘I don’t care.’ Now I’m over 40 and I’m like, ‘yeah, let’s take that down.'”

Be sure to check out Longoria’s entire interview on The View.

Ana Navarro And Meghan McCain Got Into A Screaming Match On National TV, And People Are Praising Every Second Of It

Youtube

We love a good throw down in the name of reality TV. Drama is what makes TV worth watching — it’s like a real-life telenovela, and we don’t care if people on TV are doing it just for the ratings. We live for it. One of our favorite reality shows — which is technically not a reality show, but rather a talk show — is “The View.” Those ladies can fight about anything. In this political climate of us vs. them — a/k/a the Republicans vs. the Democrats — you will not get a better TV experience, while also getting informative perspectives, than “The View.” 

And today’s episode did not disappoint. 

This might not come as a surprise, but Ana Navarro And Meghan McCain literally yelled at each other on “The View” and left viewers gasping for air.

The two “View” co-anchors got into a fighting match while discussing the latest Donald Trump scandal. Navarro, who typically appears on “The View” on Fridays, was discussing the topic of a whistleblower who came forward to say that President Donald Trump had talks with leaders of Ukraine in secret. 

McCain attempted to make a point — which didn’t actually make any sense — that liberals didn’t like how Julian Assage released classified documents yet had issues with the whistleblower disclosing information about Trump and Ukraine.  

McCain tried to correct herself and inadvertently began interrupting Navarro while she was speaking.

Once McCain realized that her point didn’t make sense, she tried to correct herself as Navarro was talking, and she really wanted to every one to hear her, which is why she began speaking very, very loudly. 

“Excuse me, maybe I was clumsy in the way that I said it,” McCain said rather forcefully. Then Navarro said, pretty calmly, “you don’t have to scream at me.”  

McCain said to Navarro, “I don’t know what you just said.” Navarro responded by saying, I said, don’t scream at me. I’m two feet away!”

The audience was clearly in shock, and McCain said, “you know, that’s so rude, Ana.” They quickly cut to a commercial break, but the camera definitely caught McCain walking off the set. By the time the show returned, it was as if the whole thing never happened. It was so weird! They began to talk about another topic, and the two ladies behaved pretty chill toward each other. It almost reminded us of how we are during Thanksgiving dinner when one moment we are fighting with everyone and the next, we’re all good friends again. 

Even though the spat lasted two seconds, people on social media ate up the drama with a spoon.

We love a good fight, but that doesn’t mean they have to get physical. That would be the end of “The View”! 

You know we had to pick a side. 

We’re always rooting for our girl, Ana. Always!

Why did the segment get so heated in the first place?

These ladies can throwdown about anything, honestly. McCain has a thin skin because she always gets frustrated that enough people do not agree with her. 

The two women have gone head-to-head in the past, and we can see why they have more tension lately. 

McCain’s husband has made fun of Navarro on Twitter. What the heck?

We can always count on Navarro to piss her off. 

This is not the first time Navarro and McCain have not seen eye-to-eye on a topic; in fact, fighting is what they do best. We’re just a bit surprised at the tone that it got to today. 

McCain was clearly more pissed off at the fact that she messed up her point entirely.

McCain didn’t explain herself well in the first place, so we’re thinking her error plus the fact that everyone else was not seeing her point is what made her upset. Navarro has never backed down if she has felt disrespected.

McCain is going to have to toughen up if she wants to last on the show.

Lots of women have left “The View” because they’re tired of the bickering, so McCain better get a grip or she going to end up going back to Fox News. Girl, we are begging you DO NOT LEAVE “THE VIEW”! 

If McCain leaves, who will fight with Navarro or any of the other women?

Out of all the other Republican hosts on “The View” McCain is our favorite, so we are pleading. Stick it out, girl. It’s Friday, let’s get a drink and pretend like this never happened. 

Check out the whole exchange below, and get some popcorn too!

Eva Longoria Is Being Called Out For Dragging Former ‘Housewives’ Actors And Defending Felicity Huffman

www.justwatch.com

Earlier this year, a major college admission scandal was exposed and at the center of it was actress Felicity Huffman. Huffman was found guilty of mail fraud for paying $15,000 to increase her daughter’s SAT scores. As of now, she awaits sentencing but is expected to be given at least a month in prison for her crime.

However, before the judge announces her sentence, celebrity friends and loved ones have sent in letters of support for Huffman, asking for leniency.

Among the letters was a testimonial from her “Desperate Housewives” co-star, Eva Longoria, and it revealed some major onset drama.

In the letter, Longoria called Huffman her “good friend” and recalled how welcoming the actress was to the Latina, who was new to Hollywood at the time. She also recalled her first table read where Huffman offered support to her co-star after seeing her “alone, scared, and unsure of where to go and what to do.”

Additionally, Longoria revealed that she was bullied on set by another actress. Though she didn’t divulge who the bully was, “Desperate Housewives” was plagued by drama and tension between the cast and had rumors of a feud between Teri Hatcher and the rest of the actors.

Longoria wrote, “I dreaded the days I had to go to work with that person because it was pure torture.”

In the letter, Longoria revealed that the bullying didn’t stop until Huffman intervened.

“Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone,” the actress said in the letter.

The letter also revealed other ways that Huffman supported Longoria during their time at “Desperate Housewives.”

It was also revealed that Longoria was being paid less than her co-stars. According to the letter, it was Huffman’s idea to pursue renegotiations as a group so they could reach a fair conclusion.

“That did not go over too well with the others,” Longoria explained. “But Felicity stood up for me, saying it was fair because the success of the show depended on all of us, not one of us. The fight lasted weeks, but Felicity held strong and convinced everyone this was the right thing to do.”

The letter also revealed that Huffman was the only co-star that supported Longoria’s charities and special projects.

“[The other women] were all usually too busy to help, except Felicity,” she wrote. “I can’t tell you how many times she was the only one who would physically show up to help me with kids with cancer, or children with special needs.”

Though Longoria’s letter comes from a place of friendship, not everyone appreciated the actress’ support of Huffman.

Some Twitter users pointed out that Longoria’s letter shouldn’t circumvent the justice system and that Huffman’s punishment shouldn’t be lessened just because of the words of her friends and family.

Other’s mentioned the injustice that was perpetrated against a deserving student because of Huffman’s actions.

In order to get her daughter into college, Huffman took a position from a deserving student who didn’t have the privilege of a parent who would buy their acceptance. Character witnesses from Huffman’s friends and family don’t negate the wrong she did to this student.

Overall, we don’t know if Longoria’s letter will help with leniency, but a lot of us still appreciate that “Desperate Housewives” tea she spilled.

This whole college admission scandal has the makings of a novela and we’ll be sure to keep following the drama.
