'Desperate Housewives' beauty Eva Longoria was rushed to hospital after a piece of set equipment fell on her head.
The stunning actress, who plays Gabrielle Solis, was filming the latest series of the hit show when she was struck by a falling pole.
She was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors released her after treatment.
Eva's spokeswoman, Liza Anderson, revealed: "She's just fine. It was a big jolt but she has a hard head. She's tough!"
The petite actress is now resting at home and the accident is not expected to delay filming of the new series.
Eva recently confessed she would love to quit acting and start a family with basketball player boyfriend Tony Parker - but can't because she has just fully committed herself to work.
She said: "I would love to have a brood of kids. I am desperate to be a housewife, but I have six more years on 'Desperate Housewives.'"
Eva fell for lover Parker after he invited her dad on their date.
The brunette beauty revealed: "Tony was very shy but he asked me out for dinner and invited my dad to join us. That was it for me."
