Emotional Eva Longoria opens up on marriage split

The star admitted that talking about the break-up makes her want to cry

Emotional Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria has spoken out about the break down of her four-year marriage to Tony Parker, admitting thinking about it still makes her ‘want to cry’.


After weeks of frenzied rumours, Eva filed for divorce from her French basketball player beau last November, after reportedly finding hundreds of texts’ from another woman – reportedly Erin Barry the wife of one of Tony’s teammates, Brent Barry, and a friend of the couple – on his phone.

The heartbroken starlet – who is now rumoured to be dating Penelope Cruz’s younger brother Eduardo – has rarely spoken out about the split.

But in a new interview, Eva has finally opened up on the events, admitting she still finds coping with the break-up ‘very hard.’

‘I’m kind of having to find new patterns because I’m not used to having – I’m used to always being on a plane and flying to a basketball game,’ the 36-year-old actress told Allure Magazine.

‘It’s been – every time I talk about it, I want to cry,’ she added. ‘It’s been hard. Very hard.’

‘I’m just trying to get through it as gracefully as possible without any drama,’ she said.

‘You know, some people collect plates and stamps and coins. I collect people, I collect amazing, smart, interesting women.’
