    Eva Longoria would surely spice up any telenovela, but that's not happening any time soon.

    The former Desperate Housewives star took to Twitter to slam a fake report claiming Longoria had been cast to three Latin soap operas on Televisa, one of which is a role as the mother of hunky Dancing With the Stars alum William Levy.

    "Longoria has signed an exclusive contract with Televisa, locking her for three telenovelas starting with Cuna de Lobos, where she will play the infamous Catalina Creel. The production finally came true after Por Derecho De Sangre, what was supposed to be the remake, proved to be a major flop after the pilot wasn't selected, but the network now hopes that with Eva on board, Cuna de Lobos will step up to the original 80's classic," according to the Latin Times.

    Mmm, not so fast.

    Longoria tweeted, "How can people make stuff up and print it? Not one word of this is true! Even has fake quotes from me!"

    Although Eva isn't slated to appear on the network, she doesn have close ties with the station. The actress is currently dating Jose Antonio Baston, who is the president of Televisa, Latin America's largest media company. "They looked like such a great couple," an insider at Art Basel in Miami told E! News of the pair, who reportedly first started seeing each other in October. "She looks so happy and he is so madly in love with her."

    "He wants her to be in the spotlight," the source added. "He clearly looked uncomfortable when the attention was on them. He loved it when it was just him and Eva."

    When she's not hanging with her beau, Longoria is busy being the executive producer of the Lifetime series Devious Maids, which was recently picked up for a second season.
