Well, this story involves a lot of strife for the young Mexican actress, who had some troubles on the set of Desperate Housewives, apparently.

Poor Eva Longoria, no one deserves to go through that.

Before we get started, let's get something straight.

ABC

Bullying is awful, and it shouldn't happen to anyone.

Whether you're a child, teen, or adult, it's always awful, and it always leaves a scar.

Eva Longoria recently came out in an article and said she was bullied on the set of 'Desperate Housewives'.

ABC

It was in response to the letter she wrote about Felicity Huffman, who has been going through some troubles of her own recently.

She was part of the college scandal scam.

But that's not the story we want to tell.

Even though Eva's story involves her.

There was this one costar Eva had on Desperate Houswives that she dreaded working with because the costar in question would constantly bully her.

The bullying kept going on and on until none other than Felicity Huffman stepped in and told the bully to stop.

Which truly shows the good character of Mrs. Huffman.
