So, like, what's up with Eva Longoria this morning?
Here are a few pertinent updates and I'm glad I could get them to you before the beginning of your workday so that you can focus on your exciting tasks instead of endlessly wondering how Eva's coping. First, People (Team Tony?) has this:
"Tony Parker was not blindsided when Eva Longoria filed for divorce this week, the NBA star tells People. "Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately," he says in a statement issued by his rep. "I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles." Parker, 28, also denied a report – since retracted – that he went to court first. "I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California," he says. "We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private." But ... but we've been subjected to every boring-ass detail of your epic love throughout the last six years. It seems cruel to cut us off now.
TMZ, meanwhile, points out that there may be some lasering in Tony and Eva's future: "Eva Longoria and Tony Parker didn't just trade vows when they got married - they also got permanent displays of affection tatted on their bods - but now that the marriage is off, will the ink follow? Both Eva and Tony had Roman numerals tatted on themselves - representing their wedding date. Eva's is on her wrist - Tony's is on his ring finger. But there's more - Eva also got the word "Nine" tatted on her neck (Tony's jersey number). Plus, Eva says she has another tat - Tony's initials - but they're hidden in a spot where only he can see .... well, in a place he USED to be able to see."
And, finally, Rob Shuter at Popeater has some tasty I-told-you-so insights: "Several guests who attended the wedding tell me they are surprised it lasted this long. "Neither one of them wanted to get married for the right reasons in the first place," a friend of the couple tells me, revealing that after Eva found overnight success on 'Desperate Housewives,' she became dizzyingly attracted to fame. "After seeing all the attention Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' wedding had received she wanted the same," my source notes. "And Tony just happened to be the right man in the right place at the right time." In 2007, I was working at the weekly magazine that secured the exclusive access and images to the too-good-to-be-true wedding, where fireworks lit up the sky at Chateau of Vaux le Vicomte, a 17th Century castle on the outskirts of Paris. I remember scouring through hundreds of images desperately trying to find a picture of the couple looking happy on their big day. It was much harder than it should have been. "Tony spent most of the day listening to music on his iPod when not being pushed into pictures, while Eva spent the entire evening hanging with her friends and dancing," a wedding guest tells me. "Tony seemed confused by the circus Eva had assembled." After only one year, cracks were already starting to show as cheating rumors circulated, but reluctant to give up her Hollywood fairytale, Eva stood by her man. Finally, after recently discovering more evidence of Tony cheating, Eva couldn't keep up the façade any longer. "She has been going home to an empty house for way too long," a friend of Eva's tells me. "Finally the charade is over and we can all stop pretending."
