Star: Eva Longoria & Eduardo Cruz are engaged, he proposed last month


I haven’t written about Eva Longoria in a while, mostly because “Who cares?” Also, I have to say – Eva has been keeping a lower profile. Maybe it’s just that no one really cares enough to invite her places, or maybe the paparazzi are bored with her too, but she hasn’t been getting pap’d on a daily basis for several months. Sure, she manages to get pap’d once a week or so, but that’s very low-key for Eva. Anyway, Eva is still loved-up with Penelope Cruz’s brother, Eduardo. He’s 26 – Eva is 36. She’s twice divorced, he’s never been in a really committed relationship. So… I’m saying that “six months” together is an achievement – although the “six months” figure is a lie perpetuated by Star Magazine. Eva and Eduardo started up two seconds after Eva’s marriage was over, last year. There were photos of them together around New Year’s. So they’ve been together for more than eight months. Time for marriage and babies?!?

Why wait when you’re in love! Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz, 26, are so smitten with each other that after dating for just six months, he popped the question in Marbella, Spain, a source close to the actor reveals to Star. The big moment came while they were cruising the Mediterranean on a yacht with his sister Penelope Cruz and her husband Javier Bardem, in July.

And they even plan to wed later this year.

“After he proposed, Eva and Eduardo jumped into the water together,” says the source. Tying the knot again so soon may seem like a big leap for the Desperate Housewives star, whose marriage to Tony Parker ended last November.

But Eduardo’s pal tells Star, “They’ve found their soul mate in each other.”

Part of me thinks that Eva is just one of Those Girls. Those Girls who always have a boyfriend/husband, those girls who can never be alone for two seconds, those girls who go from “casually dating” to “OMG, we’re getting married” in about a month. So, I’m not really surprised that there are engagement rumors, and I seriously doubt they’re coming from Eduardo. This is ALL Eva. Which means that I don’t know if I can take it seriously – I just don’t see Eduardo Cruz being all “I want to spend the rest of my life with Eva Longoria!” It doesn’t make sense.

By the way, did you notice how the Star Mag piece name-dropped Penelope and Javier? That’s Eva’s M.O. too. Eva is desperate to make this Penelope Cruz connection happen, when really, I don’t think Penelope cares much for Eva. I hope Penelope really thinks that Eva is a desperate, fame-hungry B-lister.

UPDATE: Oh, and Eva’s publicist denied this story. Considering he was the one to plant it, it makes sense.

    Isn’t she denying they are engaged?
    She does seem desperate so it wouldn’t surprise me. I think he’s so not her type…if he wasn’t named Cruz, she probably wouldn’t even look at him.

  2. lucy2 says:

    She is SO one of those girls. She’s twice divorced already and he’s pretty young, if she pushes marriage with him, it will not end well. Again.
    When there was no public outpouring of sympathy after her marriage ended, I bet she was mad.

  3. tapioca says:

    Penelope Cruz probably only hates Eva for reminding her a little too much of herself a few years ago – when she was that B-list actress solely known outside Spain for whichever high-profile co-star she was humping at the time!

    But yeah, Eva will get 3 years and a cute kid out of Eduardo, so why not jump in?

  4. gee says:

    She looks like an old kardashian. She should date someone her own age for a change.

  5. Thea says:

    I thought there were rumors he was gay? These women have all this money, enjoy their lives. Why get tied down to these losers? I would be doing my own thing and not worrying about getting married again. Cant people date and not get married?

  6. the original bellaluna says:

    She’s what I’ve dubbed a “serial relationship-ist” – always has to be with a man or she has no self-worth and no way to identify herself.

  7. Harley says:

    Never liked her. She’s so very ‘meh’. And I totally believe she’s one of those chicks who can never be without a man. If he wasn’t related to Oscar winners, she wouldn’t have given him the time of day-I’ve always gotten the sense that everything about her is so calculated. Run, Eduardo, run!

  8. meilamon says:

    I will never understand how people can marry again and again. Such a ridiculous waste of precious time imo. Have your string of boyfriends, one right after another, but for f***s sake don’t get married again!Especially with two divorces under your belt by mid 30′s.

  9. Augusta says:

    Is it me or Eduardo is a copycat of her ex?

  10. The Original Ashley says:

    If this were true, he’s an idiot. Eva Longoria is a sad famewhore and now that her show is canceled she’ll only cling to relevancy harder. You know she loves having two Oscar winners as her “inlaws”.

  11. Ren says:

    Remember when she was dating JC Chasez?? LOL!

  12. Denise says:

    She is another one that I am tired of seeing. Don’t these women take any time to recover from divorce before the ready themselves for marriage as soon as they are done with the last one? Yawn.

  13. taxi says:

    I like Eva on DH, but why does she keep going for men-boys who are too young & (too tall)for her? This kid seems like the rebound from her cheating basketballer. Does he even have a job-career? Eva is very high maintenance.
    We know big sis is not liking this at all.

  14. cailinos says:

    me too/neither; don’t get it at all. Maybe it’s the lure of a godawful, almost topless white gown and the attention of appalled wedding guests? (But then again, these dames wear such frocks any time, any place). Reckon they should be fined for repeat timewasting, and perhaps imprisoned for 3+ divorces?
    Romance recidivists of the world, untie!

  15. truetalk says:

    cougar! cougar!! cougar!!!

  16. Dana M says:

    I figured that he was just a transition guy. She seems like the type that would try to trade up from Parker. But I guess this Cruz guy is the best she was able to do.

  17. blinditemreader says:

    I thought I read he was gay?

  18. Amanda says:

    I of course know who she is but have never heard of him…

  19. jover says:

    She’s meh and I despise her phoniness when she was on lopez tonight and made the remark about how we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us; faux politics playing to the audience – right, I consult this d-list famewhore for political guidance on complex issues like immigration; she’s not that talented, and if she disappears who will miss her?
