Leave it to the ladies of Wisteria Lane to weigh in on neighborhood gossip.
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.
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.”
