Eva Longoria wants to launch her own fitness empire

NEW YORK: Former “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria, who is currently focusing on producing other shows and owns her own Mexican restaurant, is reportedly eager to create a series of diet and fitness DVDs targeted at Hispanic women.


“Eva noticed that there’s a major lack of health resources for Latinas. So she wants to work with chefs at her restaurant, Beso, to produce video segments about diet and nutrition in addition to her own Jane Fonda-style exercise DVDs,” a source said.

The brunette beauty is rumored to be in talks with a number of companies to help her move into the realm of fitness, sources.

“Netflix is already looking at backing her. Eva sees it as a real moneymaker,” the source said.

The actress previously admitted exercise is an important part of her life.
