Eva Longoria Parker has been making the rounds lately; signing on to the commission for the National Museum for the America Latino, working to gain exposure for the DREAM act and MALDEF, picking up awards from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute, getting her MA in Chicano studies...you get the point!

For a minute there, we almost forgot what catapulted ELP to the level of international stardom she's achieved—of course we're talking about the Mexican American actresses starring role in the hit ABC series Desperate Housewives!

Well, we were reminded that Longoria Parker works hard for her money when the list of the highest paid TV actors of 2010 was recently released. There she was, holding down the fourth spot on the list for raking in $400K an episode! She's the second highest ranking Latino on the list, bested only by Charlie Sheen for his role on Two & a Half Men.

Congrats Eva, you deserve the dough for all the hard work you do for our community!

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
