“I gained five pounds and it’s like a national scandal,” Eva told Access Hollywood’sBilly Bush.
Eva’s weight has been the subject of media attention and pregnancy speculation since she frolicked on a yacht for her anniversary to Tony Parker this past summer, with her bikini-body revealing a less than flat tummy.
With her character on “Housewives,” Gabrielle Solis, now a mom on the series, Eva has been wearing less form fitting outfits for the role. And, as a result, the pregnancy rumors haven’t failed to die down.
In an attempt to quell them, Eva’s co-star, Felicity Huffman joked last week to People, Eva’s not pregnant, “she’s just fat,” a comment Felicity now regrets.
“Oh my god!” Felicity told Billy at last night’s Emmys. “I get in such trouble for that line!”

But one person Felcity didn’t get in hot water with was Eva herself.
