Eva Longoria is set to guest star on Project Runway, the reality fashion design show hosted by Heidi Klum.

When reality shows first came out, their appeal was in the fact that they starred ordinary people. A few years later, the reality show buzz is dying off, but some producers think hiring stars like Eva Longoria could help boost ratings again.

"Longoria's cameo marks the show's move from New York to Los Angeles in a bid to bring more celebrities onto the programme," the Post Chronicle says.

It's a great move for Eva Longaria too. Between fending off rumors of "getting fat" due to the weight gain of her Desperate Housewives character and supporting charities like OmniPeace, a guest appearance on Project Runway could boost Eva Longoria's appeal even further.
