Eva Longoria talks about cheating and denies 'Desperate Housewives' feud
Eva Longoria is making media rounds for the upcoming series finale of "Desperate Housewives" on May 13 and the actress recently dished about how she dealt with being cheated on and an alleged feud between the "Desperate Housewives" cast.
In an interview on the Lifetime talk show "The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet," Longoria talked about recovering from infidelity.
Longoria does not mention her ex-husband, NBA player Tony Parker, by name during the episode but Longoria reportedly found hundreds of text messages from another woman on Parker's phone, who turned out to be the wife of one of the NBA player's teammates. The reports were never confirmed by Longoria, Parker or their spokespeople.
Longoria and Parker, who met in late 2004, wed in Europe in 2007. The couple's divorce was finalized in January 2011. The two had no children. This was Longoria's second marriage. She was married to actor Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004.
"I am so secure in who I am. I really am! And I'm not conceited. I just think, 'Wow, okay, that's the life you want to live,'" she told host Amanda de Cadenet. "It wasn't about who he chose. I mean, I had moments, 'Am I not sexy enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?' But in so many of those questions, I immediately stopped and said, 'No, don't start doing that.'"
The interview aired on May 10 and Longoria explained after she confronted the person about why they cheated, "It was definitely not about me and 'the why' did say that."
"It didn't make me feel better but it helped me understand," she added.
Longoria also appeared on "The Late Show With David Letterman" on May 9 and the 37-year-old actress was asked about by Letterman if the "Desperate Housewives" cast gets along.
We all get along," Longoria said.
"I thought there were fights and stuff," Letterman asked.
"I know, everyone says that," Longoria added.
Letterman then asked, "Didn't one get fired?"
Longoria laughed and said, "Yes, I forgot about that one."
Letterman was referring to Nicollette Sheridan, who filed a wrongful termination lawsuit regarding her exit from the ABC show. A judge declared a mistrial in March and Sheridan was granted a retrial for the lawsuit, which is scheduled for September.
Sheridan had claimed that her character, Edie Britt, was killed off in retaliation for complaining about a confrontation with show creator Marc Cherry. She had demanded $6 million in damages for alleged battery and wrongful termination.
Longoria reportedly split from her boyfriend Eduardo Cruz in March. The "Desperate Housewives" actress had been romantically linked to Cruz, a 26-year-old singer and the younger brother of actress Penelope Cruz, since early 2011.
