In the video, Longoria describes herself as an “actress, producer, activist and aspiring Spice Girl.”

The English pop group, known for its “Girl Power” mantra, formed in 1994 and released its first album “Spice” in 1996.

Longoria, star of “Telenovela,” is no stranger to dramatic and comedic readings. She previously held roles in such soap opera classics as "The Young and the Restless," and "General Hospital." From 2004 to 2012, she played the scheming Gabrielle Solis on “Desperate Housewives.”
