Back in the day when Eva Longoria Parker wasn’t walking the streets of Wisteria Lane, she used to work as a cashier for a local Wendy’s in Corpus Christi, TX, and returned to dish out fries and hamburgers to benefit the Dave Thomas and Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foundations.

The 33-year-old star of Desperate Housewives (ABC), chucked glamour to the curbside, and armed with a headset, attended customers who came to see the Mexican-American beauty demonstrate her humanitarian side.

The wife of basketball player Tony Parker surprised more than a few fast-food-goers who couldn’t believe they were being served by Longoria Parker, who offered up service with a smile and plenty of photo-ops with her fans.

According to The Corpus Christi Caller Times, The Sentinel star worked at Wendy’s from 1991 to 1994, before rising to fame.
