Apparently the bonds are still strong between the actors who used to call Wisteria Lane home. Actress Eva Longoria practically jumped with excitement when asked about her former Desperate Housewives costar Jesse Metcalfe's upcoming participation on this season of Dancing with the Stars. "I've got to tell you, Jesse is so much fun," she tells Woman's Day. "He's such a good guy, and I think audiences are gonna fall in love with who he really is."

Longoria and Metcalfe worked together on the wonderfully soapy Desperate Housewives from 2004 to 2009, with Metcalfe playing the steamy and seductive gardener, John Rowland, who worked for Longoria's married and mischievous character, Gabrielle Solis.

Though it's been a long time since the two have been on set together, Longoria is eager to watch Metcalfe on the show, and is definitely in his corner. "Dancing with the Stars really shows who you are because they're challenging you every week," she says. "And he's at his core a really good human. I love him very much."

But before you go thinking that Longoria will be casting all her fan votes for Metcalfe, think again. "I'm gonna be cheering Justina Machado on too," she says. And despite splitting the vote, who could blame Longoria for being so supportive of her friends?
