Telenovela Spice? Eva Longoria Gives 'Wannabe' a Hilarious Dramatic Reading

Eva Longoria is spicing up our lives.

The 40-year-old Telenovela star teamed up with Mashable on Monday to deliver a dramatic reason of one of the '90s biggest hits: "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls.

In the style of a soap opera, Longoria told us what she wants (what she really, really wants) while somber piano tunes plays in the background.

In the video, the actress becomes overwhelmed by emotion when declaring, "I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna really, really, really, wanna zigazig ha."



And just when it seems that the star might break down further, Telenovela-style, she poses with a nonchalant expression and declares, "'Wannabe,' ladies and gentlemen."

Although the star invested a comically over-the-top amount of emotion into the video, Longoria recently told PEOPLE that she's absolutely serious about the Eva Longoria Foundation and its mission to inspire young women through education.

"I researched to see who had the greatest educational disparities in the United States, and it happened to be Latinas. I thought, 'I'm Latina, and this community needs help,' " she said.

"With our funding, we encourage parental engagement, after-school programs and entrepreneurial programs."
