Although the special double date has yet to be set, Savant lets slip another surprise that has already been shot in which he has an intimate moment another housewife.
"When we come back on the air ... Eva Longoria is kissing me," says the actor. "I had a 'hellacious' day on the set with just hours and hours of Eva Longoria kissing and kissing me. It's terrible for me. Then, I've got to go home to Laura -- just terrible!"

Macy is an Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actor who's appeared on "ER" and in numerous TV movies as well as starring in "Fargo," "Pleasantville" and "Seabiscuit" on the big screen.
