Eva Longoria is really excited about getting her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this year!
Though the Desperate Housewives alum can't help but point out the irony of receiving her mark on the famous walkway the same year of as her "idol" Selena Quintanilla!
On Thursday, the actress took to Instagram to pay tribute to the late Tejano Music legend — who will receive her star over 20 years after being fatally shot by a fan.

Pointing out the similarities between herself and her "fellow Tejana," Longoria wrote:
"I could never have dreamed that one day I would receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. But even more ironic is that the same year I receive my star, so does my idol, my inspiration, my fellow Tejana, my fellow Corpus Christi native, Selena Quintanilla."
The 41-year-old noted that Quintanilla was a hometown hero who made her "proud to be from" Corpus Christi, Texas.
Fan-girling over the singer's trailblazing talent, Longoria concluded her message:
"Her smile, her charisma, her beauty put every single person who watched her under a spell. Thank you Selena. I know I will receive my star on the Walk of Fame because you dared to dream it first."
We can't wait for the names of these two phenomenal entertainers to be forever cemented into the historic walkway!
