Jesse Metcalfe

Actor Jesse Metcalfe stopped by HuffPost Live yesterday, to discuss season three of TNT's hit series “Dallas." He also opened up about his relationship with girlfriend Cara Santana and revealed why he wasn’t originally casted as the sexy landscaper on “Desperate Housewives.”

Metcalfe: “I had no idea how successful 'Desperate Housewives' was going to be. I just didn’t have a clue. I wasn’t originally casted in that part. They had another actor that was casted in that part and for some reason or another, they decided to recast. I was lucky enough to be at the right place at the right time and fit the bill. I had to audition for Marc Cherry, the creator of that show, and he saw fit to give me that role. It was an incredible opportunity but I did not anticipate it at all. I think a lot of it had to do with working with Eva Longoria. We had a great friendship and we had great chemistry on screen. I think people really loved that story line. The show just became a television phenomenon really and kind of found its place in the zeitgeist of popular culture.”

On What He Looks For In A Relationship:

Metcalfe: “I think most people are drawn to someone initially because of the way they look or maybe it’s just a vibe or something… But as far as being in a relationship with somebody, I’ve dated in the past some very beautiful women that weren’t so smart and it didn’t really keep my attention. So I really look for the total package. [My girlfriend Cara] is just one of the most caring and generous people I’ve ever met and she’s incredibly intelligent. She keeps our lives and my life in order. I’d be lost without her, I really would.”

The cast of 'Desperate Housewives'

Angry 'Desperate Housewives' fans bombarded phone lines after a scene appeared to mock the Filipino medical system. In the first episode of the fourth series, which aired in the US on last Sunday, Teri Hatcher's character, Susan, goes for a medical check-up and is horrified when the doctor suggests she may be going through the menopause.The gynaecologist tells her: "Listen, Susan, I know for a lot of women the word `menopause' has negative connotations. You hear `ageing,' `brittle bones,' `loss of sexual desire.' "To which Susan replies: "OK, before we go any further, can I check these diplomas? Just to make sure they aren't, like, from some med school in the Philippines?"More than 30,000 infuriated viewers have signed an online petition, seeking an apology from the ABC network.The petition read: "A statement that devalues Filipinos in healthcare is extremely unfounded, considering the overwhelming presence of Filipinos and Filipino Americans in the medical field."ABC responded to the complaints saying they were considering editing the episode.The statement said: "The producers of 'Desperate Housewives' and ABC Studios offer our sincere apologies for any offence caused by the brief reference in the season premiere. There was no intent to disparage the integrity of any aspect of the medical community in the Philippines."As leaders in broadcast diversity, we are committed to presenting sensitive and respectful images of all communities featured in our programs."Filipino Health Secretary Francisco Duque III said he intends to write to the producers to ask for an apology.

Eva Longoria needs more sexy roles !

Eva Longoria wants more sexy movie roles.The 'Desperate Housewives' actress, who shot to fame playing seductress Gabrielle Solis on the hit US show, is disappointed by the lack of racy parts she is offered. She said: "Probably 80 per cent of the scripts I'm sent are dramatic. I've had very few sexy offers, to the point where I'm getting annoyed and going, 'Hey where's the sexy stuff?' I'm going for the sexy roles for as long as I can, because women have an expiration date in this business."Eva's last big screen outing was in 2006's 'The Sentinel', in which she starred opposite Michael Douglas. In the movie, the petite brunette played a gun-toting Secret Service and despite her girly persona, her co-star revealed she was the best shot. Douglas said at the time: "The FBI, Secret Service, and state police all said that she probably shot better than 90 per cent of the police officers in the US."

The 42-year-old, who plays Susan Mayer on the hit US TV show, recently admitted she was struggling to strike a balance between work, love and caring for her eight-year-old daughter Emerson Rose. She said: "I'll work a 14-hour day, four days in a row and feel like I've been run over.

She is quoted by Britain's Daily Express newspaper as saying: "I don't use Botox or Restylane and I've never had any surgery."A male friend in the fashion industry once asked me, 'Why is make-up any different to getting Botox?' I said I didn't think it was a fair comparison, make-up is removable, it's not permanent. But changing the natural chemical state of who you are? I'm not sure."In March 2006, the 'Desperate Housewives' star admitted having Botox and collagen injections - which plump up the lips - to keep her looking young.Teri - who plays hapless Susan Mayer in the US TV show - said: "In the past,I've had Botox and collagen."

I didn't care for wine before. But I'm not a big drinker. I actually don't drink at all except for at dinner, occasionally I'll have a glass of wine."

Marcia Cross has been ordered to stay in bed for the remainder of her pregnancy.The 'Desperate Housewives' actress - who is expecting twins in April with her stockbroker husband Tom Mahoney - has been put on bed rest by her doctor. Marcia's spokeswoman Heidi Slan said: "Marcia has been put on bed rest due to the fact that she is pregnant with twins. This is a precautionary measure only."Marcia had planned to film two more episodes for the hit US TV show before her bump became too visible - her pregnancy has not been written into her character Bree's storyline. However, producer Marc Cherry is now reportedly planning to move the set to Marcia's Los Angeles home for two days so they can shoot the scenes there. Marc recently admitted: "It hasn't been fun hiding the bump. Marcia Cross has carried more bags of groceries this season than ever before!" Marcia hasn't experienced any complications in her pregnancy until now - the only thing she found difficult was carrying extra weight around. The 44-year-old said: "I am absolutely, 100 percent fine. It's hard to carry around all that weight. I wake up feeling like me and then I step on the ground and I'm like, whose body is that walking to the bathroom?"Marcia's bed rest order means she will miss the Golden Globes ceremony on Monday. She has been nominated for Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical. Marcia and Tom dated for a year before he proposed in August 2005. The couple married in June 2006.
