Beauty and brains!

Eva Longoria Parker
has announced her plans to get a masters degree in Chicano studies and political science to learn about her heritage.

Jessica Alba, take note!

Eva is originally from Texas, but her family hails from Monterrey in Mexico. The actress was recently in Mexico City shooting her first Spanish-speaking role for the upcoming film Days of Grace.

Regarding her higher education plans, she told Hola magazine that she wants to "learn more about the history of the country we come from."

No word yet on which university she plans to enroll in, but the Latina stunner already has a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology from Texas A&M!

We think a masters degree sounds fantastic!

Good for you, sweetie!

  2. 2

    Why should Jessica Alba "take note?" She is busy running after an active toddler. That obviously is taking up most of her time.



  3. 3

    can she get back over the border?



  4. 4

    she has her degree from TEXAS A&M–KINGSVILLE!!! get it right! NOT COLLEGE STATION. TAMUK. Eva was even Miss TAMUK back in 1997 I believe. Again, TEXAS A&M-KINGSVILLE!!!



  5. 5

    She did not go to Texas A&M Univ. — she went to a small branch of it, commonly referred to as TAMU-K. It's a dinky college in Kingsville, TX and she majored in kinesiology… P.E.! TAMU-K is hurting financially… maybe she acknowledge the TRUE college she attended and help them raise funds. Like it or not - it is her alma mater; she was not an Aggie.

    good for her, its always good to learn new things

    Re: g.babyl0c805 – Pretty deep. I'm having a tough time breathing. I'm hispanic so I thought I could get away with that comment.

    Wait a minute, Its great that Eva is going back to school, but your hating on Jessica Alba for not representing is idiotic. How you relate to your own ethnicity is very personal, and no one has the right to tell you how to "legitimately" show your roots. That is on par to reducing a very complex cultural heritage that many of us have, into a cartoon. Let me tell you, that gets old FAST, because before being Latin, Irish, African, or wherever your from we are PEOPLE.



  18. 18

    Good for her; it sounds cool. But i've go to say, Longoria's such a bore. She's contributed as much to the acting world as Eva Mendes. Just another pretty face.



  19. 19

    Bong, you're an idiot!

    Naidu- I beg to respectively disagree with you. I agree with your point of us all being human and expressing their heritage in their own way, however, the fact is that Jessica is what I call an ethnic poser for various reasons. Case in point, when interviewed in Latina magazine, she said she does not consider herself Latina, she considers herself American because her great grandparents were the ones who migrated from MExico and because she is half Caucasian. While there is nothing wrong with expressing your roots in whichever way one chooses, Jessica was later seen at an event encouraging Latinos to vote for Latinos, because she is of Latin heritage. I see at least one thing wrong with that, first of all she had previously denied her Latino roots, secondly, she showed her ethnic poser like tendencies. She acknowledged her ethnicity only when it was to her advantage, when all celebrities were on the Obama bandwagon for publicity. Jessica clearly looks Latina and it's sad that she seems to be so ashamed of her roots, being multi-ethnic is something to be proud of. BtW, ethnic poser= Only acknowledging one's ethnicity when it is convenient and denying it otherwise.



  20. 20

    ROTFLMAO……why are you so concerned about your culture now? September 16th was El Grito….the cry for independece from the French…you know the same people you married.



  21. 21

    Longoria needs to get a green card while shes back in Mexico! Illegals getting a free education on our tax dollars, we already have enough bad actress's in California! She needs to go try to get aa acting job in one of those pitifully horrific "Mexican Soaps!"

  22. Eggs says – reply to this


    22

    She always has that stupid "I just caught playing with my coolie. I'm a bad good girl" look.



  23. 23

    Soulse and Uncle Edon you two are morons!

    First of all, the French raped "my people" dumb ass, some willingly married them, but most were raped and had their land stolen DICK!

    Uncle Edon- You are so ignorant, "illegals" don;'t get money from the government to go to college dumb ass! You are so racist dumb ass, you both are go fuck yourselves!



  24. 24

    Perez, you are so retarded to call out Jessica Alba on this no matter how bitchy she is. We are Americans. Not all of us walk around waving the flags of our heritage. There's got to be that point where you stop saying "I'm Italian, I'm Irish, I'm Greek, I'm Cuban." etc. Sure, we all have our roots and that's what makes us, well, US. But to harp on the whole Jessica not being proud of her Latino heritage is ridiculous. She's a very small part Latino and didn't want to jump on the bandwagon, so fucking be it. I'm like 1/8 Irish… should I be waving the flag of Ireland and getting wasted eadh St. Patrick's day in the name of my ancestors? Give us all a fucking break already… esp. Alba.



  25. 25

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – GO back to Mexico You Illegal bastard and jump back in the stinking toilet you came from!



  26. 26

    lover her. WHEN IS DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES COMING BACK!??!



  27. 27

    Re: uncle eldon

    For your information I was born and raised in California dumb ass, but my parents migrated from Mexico and worked their asses off so I would graduated from college you trailer park trash cracker!



  28. 28

    jessica alba is mixed, she is white AND latina not one of the other. and being mixed she can say she is either one. and i don't hear you criticizing barack obama for saying he's black when he is half white, and was raised by his white family and his dad is african. but then again your head is pretty far up his ass, unless "gay rights" are mentioned



  29. 29

    *graduated. The fact is that Alaba is an ethnic poser, she is beautiful but it's so sad she appears to be ashamed of her roots.



  30. 30

    Re: bongo – well then u must've crossed a pretty rough border if u say comments like that…



  31. 31

    What a colossal waste of time. She'll be able to wipe her ass with that degree because it's useless for anything else.



  32. 32

    Good for her but a true Texan would be a longhorn!!



  33. 33

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – Screw you and your self-rightious BS. Jessica never once said she was "ashamed" of her heritage, she said she didn't want to be called a "latina", she was an AMERICAN. Since when has it become a crime to be an American?? She didn't want to be called a 'latina' because she didn't want to BE a poser, you idiot. The only POSER here seems to be you. You admit you were born in California, which makes YOU an American, not a Mexican, but you want to preach on others about whether they are 'properly displaying their heritage'. FU and all like you. I'm proud to be an American, and do NOT feel the need to hyphenate my heritage. Only in this country do people seem to use the freedom living in this country provides them to always put it second when titling themselves … Afro-American, Mexican-American, Cuban-American … blah blah blah. If you all seem to like using our freedoms so much to spout off about it, how about putting America first? Otherwise, feel free to LEAVE! You don't see people in other countries calling themselves "Mexican-English" or "Afro-Spanish". Everyone has the right to, and should, be proud of who they are. And if you're American, try being proud of that too.



  34. 34

    Good for her. She's had so much trouble conceiving, she should focus on a degree. Looks like it's a simplistic one, at that. Right up her ally, so to speak. I wish her all the luck. I've never found her pretty (god - that constant overbite and mighty mouse's girlfriend look) but to each their own! :)



  35. 35

    Good for you Eva!!! :)



  36. 36

    Good for her! Many actors have no education what so ever. Grow up people and stop with the racial remarks. It must come from your sad misery of a life.



  37. 37

    Any self-respecting history department would not let someone do a masters with a phys ed bachelor, folks



  38. 38

    Old news, Eva has already enrolled to a CSU.

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – If Mexico is so great go home you illegal, bastard! I see a taco on your diploma and in your future you disgusting wetback!

  42. 42

    chicano studies. give me an f'ing break.



  43. 43

    Re: Unbelievable! – xenophobic much? definitely ignorant much. go read about the history of all non-white people in this country. one can embrace their roots and still be american. but it is very hard when my family was told we were dirty mexicans not americans by white immigrants who stepped on this class that has always been ours!!!



  44. 44

    Re: uncle eldon – i hope you die



  45. 45

    Re: me0101 – i would willingly give you a break … and a fracture and a shatter of all the bones in your ignorant body. chicano studies is the last truth in this country!!!



  46. 46

    i just admire her willingness to go back to school at that age. it'll be great for other people to look at her and realize that there truly is no age at which you have to stop learning - no matter what it is you choose to learn.



  47. 47

    Maybe she should take some courses to learn more about the country she was born in. Perhaps she might want to study the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and American History. She doesn't seem to know too much about that. She is an AMERICAN. She was born HERE.

    Re: marlow – is because jessica don't like people to say she is latina, she is an idiot, not like eva



  51. 51

    Smart girl. She is definately grounded and hasn't let fame and money make her the slightest bit lazy. Kudos to all the celebs who choose to go back to school.

    WHY IS THIS WHORE FAMOUS? I HATE THIS ZORRA.



  54. 54

    My favorite college classes were caucasion studies.



  55. 55

    Does anyone else see that HUGE ASS bruise on her armpit? WTF has her husband been doing to her?



  56. 56

    How about she learns about her AMERICAN heritage. I can tell her about her mexican heritage: mexico is a third world dirthole.the end.



  57. 57

    CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY NORTHRIDGE

    Re: DukeSteele – Fuck you stupid piece of shit! Every student that goes through the American school system is required to learn about American history. Secondly, learn the history and you;ll realize it was the Americans who cheated Mexico out their land "the Southwest". While I am proud to have been born and raised in this country, the reality is that I also proud of my roots, unlike alot of other "CHICANOS"!

    To UNCLE ELDON: You are so pathetic, you ignorant white piece of trailer park trash! It's because of idiots like you who voted for Bush that this country is in the hole and that thousands of soldiers have died for a useless war. You uneducated and pathetic piece of trash!



  59. 59

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – Unbelievable #34 is so right. And like I was saying, mexico-not worthy of a capital letter- remains a third world dirthole.



  60. 60

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – If you are going to insult me then at least speak proper english. Its "screw you, YOU stupid piece of shit."And mexico is STILL a third world dirthole.



  61. 61

    Re: BlueeyedMexi88 – Correction: Its fuck you,YOU stupid piece of shit. Sorry, I don't want to confuse you with bad english. You seem confused enough.



  62. 62

    well… its not THE texas a&m… its a branch in kingsville. but i guess its the same thing?



  63. 63

    Good for her, considering her limited acting ability.



  64. 64

    What does Jessica Alba have to take note? What has she done to you? I wish someone would start a blogging site bashing you. But I guess that other celebs & people have better things to do. Leave Jessica alone, you fat ass, twinkie stuffer!



  65. 65

    Re: Qxicano – Go read?? You should try taking your own advise dipshit! I specifically stated that everyone SHOULD embrace their heritage, INCLUDING being American. It pisses me off when ignorant morons like yourself like to tell everyone else how they should display their heritage. As if they are somehow LESS Mexican, or Spanish, or Cuban or whatever if they don't choose to advertise it, or fly a flag, or hyphenate their names like you'd like them to! Get a clue f@cktard. And I like how you somehow assume that it's about being white! This country isn't about being white, it's a mix of every culture, that's what makes it great. AND, for your information, as much as you just love to preach about how "tough you had it", you don't know shit. My ancestors were American Indian, and NO culture in this country has EVER had it worse than ours. SO GO F@CK YOURSELF! Can you read that clear enough?

    I am a grad student at the school Eva is attending online. She is not a registered grad student - she is taking an undergrad course.



  67. 67

    Eva's dumb ass needs to learn her ancestry history…ahah. She apart of that denial real roots. She can't even say or admit. Just admit it " your Mexican". A white girl trapped in a Mexican body. Que Lastima. Jessica Alba should join her because she don't represent either. HOW SAD MEXICAN, Mexican women afraid to admit they're Mexican.
