London: Eva Longoria is taking pole dance lessons for her role in the eighth season of ‘Desperate Housewives.’
The actress, who plays Gabrielle Solis, has been practicising at the S Factor gym in Los Angeles. The 36-year-old says she is not a stranger to stripper poles as her former "Baywatch" star friend Carmen Electra had gifted her one in 2009.
"Carmen Electra has these stripper poles that she sells. She sent me one for Valentine`s Day and told me to have fun. So I set it up myself and it is supposed to fit any ceiling. I got on it to swing and, `Whack!` I fell on the floor so I never really got good at it," contactmusic.com quoted her as saying.
The eighth season of ‘Desperate Housewives’ is slated to return to screens, Sep 25 in the US.
