I have enjoyed several parts of Eva Longoria’s relationship with Eduardo Cruz, the younger brother of Penelope Cruz. One part of enjoyment comes from Eva’s blatant hypocrisy and mixed media messaging when talking about her divorce from Tony Parker. She’s trying to milk the divorce for all of the public sympathy that she can get, and she’s being really, really obvious about it. At the same time, she’s pushing her “new” relationship with Eduardo to any paparazzo who will snap their photo. Also: the relationship began long before the “official” line – there were photos of Eduardo at Eva house just weeks after Eva and Tony split. But I digress.
My absolute favorite part of Eva’s Eduardo drama is how Eva is trying to sidle up to Eduardo’s Oscar-winning, A-list sister, Penelope. The Enquirer had a story a few weeks ago about how Penelope hates Eva’s guts and thinks that Eva is a famewhoring B-lister who should get her cougar claws out of Penelope’s baby brother. And now, a new chapter. Us Weekly has yet another “Eva is moving on, she’s got a new man!” story, and this week’s twist is that Eva’s people are leaking the story that she and Penelope get along really, really well. Riiight.
Look who’s rebounding!
“I’m moving on,” Eva Longoria tells Hot Stuff. “Life is great!”
Indeed, a source says Eva has been “blossoming” with boyfriend of two months Eduardo Cruz.
“With Tony, she used to feel pressure to learn French and deal with his crazy mother. Now she’s in a family where she feels comfortable.”
Adding to her bliss? Longoria already has the approval of her beau’s bid sister.
“At first, Eva was unsure if Penelope would like her,” adds the source. “but now they embrace each other. She just met Penelope’s baby!”

Seriously, I’m not one for gratuitous catfights, but I would seriously pay good money to see Penelope take care of this famewhore once and for all. Penelope can throw down. “But Eva is scrappy,” you say. NO! Penelope is going to cut a bitch, especially now that Eva has taken to famewhoring the baby!!! It’s not just about Penelope and Eva now. Eva crossed a line.
