Sydney Morning Herald journalist Jenna Clarke wrote a piece about celebrities endorsing products they don't actually need or use and used Longoria as an example.

The former Desperate Housewives star was recently in Sydney to promote Specsavers and was snapped wearing her specs.

However, Clarke claimed that after a search on the internet she only happened across two photos of Longoria ever wearing glasses and claimed "she doesn't wear spectacles".

My open letter to @jennamclarke from the Sydney Morning Herald @smh who "claims" I don't wear glasses. If you had done...

She went on to say, "Longoria, who is also a cosmetics ambassador, is a serial offender when it comes to selling out in a not so subtle way.

"Back in 2012 she was the ambassador for a cat food, which would have been a great brand alignment had she owned a cat."

Wow! MissingThePoint! @jennaMClarke didn't appreciate me "sticking" my 7M followers on her! Well Jenna I didn't...

However, Longoria did not take the attack lying down and took to Facebook to post a response:

"My open letter to @jennamclarke from the Sydney Morning Herald @smh who "claims" I don't wear glasses. If you had done your journalistic duty (it's actually not that hard, a more thorough google job, or one phone call to my camp and they could have provided you any documentation) you would see that I have been wearing READING glasses since May 3, 2013. Long before Specsavers ..."

The post was accompanied by several shots of Longoria wearing specs.

Clarke then spoke to 96FM Breakfast to say she didn't appreciate Longoria setting her 7 million followers on her and Longoria responded with another hilarious post:

"Wow! MissingThePoint! @jennaMClarke didn't appreciate me "sticking" my 7M followers on her! Well Jenna I didn't appreciate you writing LIES! So think twice next time and maybe all these awesome people won't have a reason to tweet u! ‪#‎BeHappy‬ ‪#‎MostTweetsYouveEverGotten‬"

The actress has also revealed on Facebook that the Sydney Morning Herald have "failed to respond" and "won't return calls to stand by the article".
