Eva Longoria Opens Up About Tony Parker Cheating: "I Don't Carry Baggage"
Talk about resilience!
About two years into the marriage, she discovered hundreds of sexts between Tony and another woman, which led to their eventual divorce. While finding your husband was cheating may lead many down the rabbit hole of despair, Eva swears she didn't let it affect her self-esteem.
"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 said. "I had moments [where I wondered], '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.' Because you can get stuck in that cycle and you can carry on to other things."
After filing for divorce, she found love again with Penelope Cruz's brother, Eduardo, whom she dated for over a year. How did she move on so quickly? She's not a "baggage person" and surmised Tony's infidelity with "that was him, that was that."
In fact, she still says she doesn't hold any ill-will for the basketball star and doesn't want to "judge him" for the mistakes he made.
"I'm in a transitional state where I have no rules and I have no boundaries," she said confidently. "I don't really want to put those back up."
