In tonight's premiere episode of Russian Dolls, we'll see Eva Levitis compete in a beauty pageant for grandmothers. She's a woman of many talents: she auditioned for the American X Factor back in June and recorded a song earlier this month. But for the talent part of the beauty pageant, she showed off a different skill... belly dancing!
Eva took up belly dancing when she and her husband got divorced. We'll also see Eva on dates later in the season. She hopes to show women her age that even though being single later in life can be scary, it can be a lot of fun too! I think that's a great message, and I look forward to seeing more from her on the show tonight.
