Eva Longoria entered the new year as an engaged woman when businessman Jose "Pepe" Antonio Baston asked for her hand in marriage during their Dubai getaway last December.
"He planned for months and it was in the Dubai desert and there were camels and falcons involved," she reveals to On Air with Ryan Seacrest over the phone Monday morning. "It was a lot and very memorable and special because it's him."
In a separate interview with Today, the actress admits that setting a wedding date is the furthest thing on her mind. In the meantime, she will be focusing on her upcoming NBC show Telenovela, a comedy series that goes behind the cameras of the soap opera and its stars.
"I play the star of this Spanish soap who doesn't speak Spanish," she laughs. "She's kind of like a fish out of water like myself when I was growing up, I didn't speak Spanish. It's a mainstream comedy. It's for everybody and not just for Latinos."
Telenovela premieres tonight (Monday, January 4) at 8:30/7:30c on NBC.
