Actress Eva Longoria Parker is spicing up the biggest night of the year when she joins BILLBOARD'S NEW YEAR'S EVE LIVE airing Thursday, Dec. 31 (11:00 PM-12:30 AM ET live; CT/MT/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Kim Kardashian and some of the biggest names in Hollywood will join Longoria Parker to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Las Vegas' acclaimed Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino will be the home of the best beach party New Year's Eve has ever seen as host Carmen Electra turns up the heat poolside and cranks up the water temperature to 90 degrees. Today's biggest musical acts � including AMERICAN IDOL Season Eight winner Kris Allen and finalist Allison Iraheta and music sensation Sean Kingston � will give rocking performances as they ring in 2010.

FOX cameras will be there to capture every electrifying moment from Las Vegas and the heart of New York City as the world-famous New Year's Eve Ball makes its descent into Times Square. The New Year's celebration will showcase some of the most memorable performances from the historic Billboard Music Awards and will count down the Top 5 of the year in music, movies and television.

Golden Globe-nominated, Screen Actors Guild Award-winning and ALMA Award-winning Eva Longoria Parker stars as "Gabrielle Solis" on the megahit "Desperate Housewives." Longoria Parker has received numerous awards, including the People's Choice Award for Favorite Female TV Star, a Bambi Award and a Teen Choice Award. A passionate philanthropist, Longoria Parker is the founder of Eva's Heroes, which provides an after-school program for individuals with developmental disabilities, and the national spokesperson for Padres Contra el Cancer, which helps Latino families who have children with cancer by providing them with educational, financial and language resources. Longoria Parker is the face of L'Oreal and the executive producer and host for the National Council of La Raza ALMA Awards, and is producing her first documentary, "Harvest," which brings the struggles of the estimated 500,000 mostly Latino children who work in this country's fields, unprotected by the Fair Labor Standards Act because they are farm workers, out of the shadows. In addition to being a restaurateur, Longoria Parker is the owner of her own production company, UnbeliEVAble Productions, and an eco-friendly development firm, The GreenVille Project.

Longoria Parker partnered with Celebrity Chef Todd English and restaurateurs JT Torregiani and Jonas Lowrance on her first restaurant, Beso, a popular Hollywood eatery featuring upscale contemporary cuisine that opened in March 2008. On New Year's Eve 2009, the team sets their sights on Las Vegas, launching a new Beso that boasts an eclectic and universally appealing dinner menu, featuring colorful and tasty dishes from around the world, as well as some of Longoria Parker's own recipes. The Las Vegas location, which is located inside Crystals retail entertainment promenade at CityCenter, also features the much-anticipated nightclub Eve, an 8,000-square-foot hot spot that envelops guests in a luxurious atmosphere of black and sparkling gold. Lavish VIP booths, floor-to-ceiling mirrored windows and the 50-foot-tall arched ceiling accentuate the glamorous interior while one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art colossal video screens surround the dance floor. Renowned DJs and a premium sound and lighting system make Eve the ultimate nightclub to dance the night away.

Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, a AAA Four Diamond Award-winning destination resort, is set on 60 lush acres and offers 3,635 newly remodeled rooms and suites, including 424 accommodations managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
