Eva Longoria met Tony Parker, Spurs point guard, in November 2004. After attending a San Antonio Spurs game with her father, Eva requested to meet the players in the locker room. She fell in "lust at first sight" with Tony. Upon meeting the Desperate Housewives star, Tony asked both Eva (and her father) to dinner, and the couple began dating. On November 30, 2006, the couple became engaged.
They married in a civil service on July 6, 2007, at a Paris city hall. They had a full, Catholic wedding ceremony at the Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois Church in Paris on Saturday, July 7, 2007. On November 17, 2010, Longoria filed for divorce from Parker in Los Angeles, citing "irreconcilable differences". In the divorce petition, Longoria requested that her maiden name be restored.
Parker admitted to French television show Conversation Secrète that walking away from Longoria was hard. “It’s not easy to leave a relationship, because when I get involved in something, I want to do it well,” he said
Parker also explained in the interview that the Hollywood spotlight did not help his relationship. “The exposure, I could not control. This is the world we live in today – everything is on the Internet and social network sites,” he said. “I never paid attention to what people said. Hollywood is another world, on another level.”
