Eva Longoria diovrced Tony Parker last year and has since been seeing Eduardo Cruz, Penelope’s brother, but she was spotted with newly single, LA Laker, Matt Barnes at dinner last week in NY! Eva wasÂ allegedlyÂ ‘very flirty’ with Barnes. Is this a new love connection or two people working on a charity event together?
â€œDesperate Housewivesâ€ star Longoria, who divorced San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker last November amid reports he shared racy texts with another woman, seemed â€œvery flirtyâ€ with Barnes as they dined with two friends at Il Mulino Thursday night.
Spies at the Greenwich Village restaurant said Longoria, whoâ€™s still dating Penelope Cruzâ€™s younger brother, Eduardo, also dined with two of her close friends — stylist Robert Verdi and entrepreneur Loren Ridinger — but seemed very focused on Barnes.
A spy in the restaurant told us: â€œThere was definitely a spark between Eva and Matt. They werenâ€™t seated next to each other, but you could tell there was something between them. There was a little hand-holding over the table and a lot of eye contact.â€
This isnâ€™t the first time Longoria has been out with Barnes. On Oct. 16, she posted a photo on Twitter of herself partying with Barnes and George Lopez at Club Nikki in Las Vegas.
Barnes announced last Monday that he had split with his fiancÃ©e, Gloria Govan, the sultry star of â€œBasketball Wivesâ€ with whom he has 3-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isaiah Michael. The pair broke up after postponing their wedding and having their struggles well- documented by reality TV.
Barnesâ€™ statement read, â€œWe have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.â€
But Govan told gossiponthis.com that she and Barnes could get back together. â€œWeâ€™re still friends, and weâ€™re still working things out … I think anything is possible,â€ she said.
A rep for Longoria told us, â€œEva and Matt are friends and are working together doing charity work for Evaâ€™s Padres Contra El CÃ¡ncer. She was at the dinner amongst her other friends.â€
