Eva Longoria has been left in pain after taking pole-dancing lessons for a special episode of Desperate Housewives.
The actress has taken up the saucy hobby so she can perform a risque routine on the hit show, and is being taught by pole-dancing guru Sheila Kelley at her Los Angeles studio.
Uploading pictures of her bruised arms on Twitter.com, she writes, "My wounds from pole dancing! Wait til you see this episode of Desperate Housewives! Hilarious! Worth the pain!"
