Oh, celebrities! When they aren't falling off horses, they're standing around on sets, minding their own business, and practically begging to become victims of gravity. A Defamer operative on the scene wrote in to inform us of an on-set accident yesterday involving Eva Longoria on a Desperate Housewives location shoot:
While rehearsing an exterior prison sequence at Pasadena City College for "Desperate Housewives," a section of cross-pipe that was securing tall chain link fences came loose and fell on top of Eva Longoria's head. She collapsed to the ground, and she lay still for a few minutes while the set medic attended to her. Yes, there was blood, but very little. She was finally carried off the set and taken to a local hospital for further examination. Thank goodness for a pretty little hat that she was wearing, which helped cushion the blow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that my favorite desperate housewife isn't brain damaged.
This seems a lot less scary now that the AP has reported that she was treated and released yesterday (no brain damage, Mr. Callous Operative), and won't even miss a day of work. Longoria suffered a far more serious blow when the television Academy's metaphorical snubbing-cross-pipe struck her, leaving her fine work as a gardener-bopping vixen on the show unrecognized by an Emmy nomination.
