Eva Longoria Parker
’s Desperate Housewives
costar, Felicity Huffman, is putting those pregnancy rumors to rest.
"She's just fat, that’s all there is to it!" Huffman, 45, joked to PEOPLE about Longoria Parker at Saturday's re-opening of the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles.
Rumors of a pregnancy
for Longoria Parker, 33, and her husband, Tony Parker, have been circulating all summer after the actress wore a loose-fitting sundress on a shopping trip
and later debuted a fuller-than-normal bikini body in July.
Longoria Parker says she can’t wait
to have children, but her fuller figure is all for the sake of her role
as Gabby on Housewives
In addition to putting on weight for the role, Longoria Parker will also don a fat suit this season to play an overworked housewife when the show's storyline jumps ahead five years.
"She looks cute," Huffman said of a fat-suited Longoria Parker. "But she's always like, 'Feel my ass! Feel my ass!’ All the jokes [on set] are Eva and her fat suit."RELATED ARTICLE:
