Eva Longoria’s Learning Sign Language

It looks as though Eva Longoria is picking up a new language! The 36-year-old star of Desperate Housewives recently announced at the 9th Annual GLAD Benefit Extravaganza that she is learning sign language to be able to communicate with her deaf fans. 

“I’ve had a lot of deaf people who have bought my [cook] book and I’ve been able to talk to them about what my favorite recipe is and what to cook,” she said. 

Her cookbook, titled Eva’s Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family & Friends, was released earlier this year. Last week, Eva had some drama at a book signing when her ex-hubby Tony Parker's mom showed up at a book signing in San Antonio. TX.
