Eva Longoria announces rich businessman boyfriend: trying to make Clooney jealous?


Eva Longoria broke up with her last boyfriend of a whole four months around the end of August. Eva’s most recent ex was a reality show contestant who was over four million in debt. Eva may have wised up that the guy was using her for money and fame, although reports of the split claimed that “they’re just on hold right now.” To me that’s evidence that she was keeping her options open because she can’t stand to be single at all. There’s nothing wrong with playing the field and dating, but Eva comes across as a serial dater.

To complicate matters, Eva was said to be hooking up with George Clooney on the downlow this summer. Clooney predictably didn’t take it further with Eva, since she’s too high profile for him. So what’s going on with Eva now? She found another guy, a very accomplished one, and just announced that they’re dating. If you go by her official story, she just announced her last breakup less than three months ago and she thinks she’s serious enough with the next guy to announce that too.

Before we quote People here, it’s worth noting that E! claimed that Eva was seen making out at a restaurant in NY, Serafina, with another ex boyfriend, Eduardo Cruz, just three weeks ago. People notes that Eva was in NY at that time with her new guy, Televisa president Jose “Pepe” Antonio Baston. E!’s earlier story was probably a case of mistaken identity:

After several weeks of keeping her new romance under wraps, Eva Longoria stepped out over the weekend with the new man in her life, Jose “Pepe” Antonio Baston.

“He’s been sweeping her off her feet and courting her like a proper gentleman,” a source tells PEOPLE of Baston, 45, the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America. On Friday, he escorted the actress/producer, 38, to the Museo Jumex Opening dinner at Case De La Bola in Mexico City, Mexico.

Cameras flashed incessantly as the wealthy businessman and the former Desperate Housewives star made their way down their first red carpet together.

Last month, Longoria and Baston dined at New York’s Serafina restaurant. A source told PEOPLE at the time that the Longoria was “very happy” with the budding relationship and that Baston was “crazy about her.”

So Eva has a new boyfriend, and he’s accomplished and rich in his own right. Here’s a headshot of the guy. Hot! He’s been named one of the most influential people in Mexico. Eva traded up from that reality show leech she was dating before, and arguably from Ernesto Cruz, her previous long term relationship. It still seems too early to announce the relationship, and like she’s tempting fate. Sure things are fun and romantic and it’s all butterflies now, but wait a bit. Don’t invite the press in until you’re sure of things. To Eva, a few weeks probably seems like forever though.

    Please! Does she really think she has a chance with an A-List? Not even an A-List TV star, let alone, a movie star.

    Lo siento, chica. LARGATÉ!

  2. Miss M says:

    That’s why she will never get back with Clooney (IF they were really together)…
    Such discreet lady…

  3. hadleyb says:

    Eh, I think she knows George is who he is and won’t ever, ever change.

    Seems like to me she is looking for a father for her baby, a new husband to complete that whole family thing she wants. She is well aware George would never marry or have kids.

  4. Cherry says:

    Has she done something to her face? She looks very different to me in the header pic.

  5. Bridget says:

    ”Hello! Look at me! Don’t you wnt to know about my lovelife? And maybe put me in your show or movie? Hello!”

    And she wasn’t too famous for Clooney so much as way too much of a yapper. No one would ever use ”Eva Longoria” and ”discrete” in the same sentence.

      Tony Parker is having a baby boy w/his fiancée announced previously–here comes EVA!!!

      Tony Parker announces his engagement–here comes Eva with the “reality show new LOVA announcement”

      GC is smart not to go there w/her–at least public.

      • Kim1 says:

        Oh please the best thing she has ever done is leaving that cheating ho Tony Parker.Oh and he may have two babies on the way but he can afford it.
        As for this fictional fling with Clooney? I believe as much as I believe there was a romantic relationship between Charlize and Skarsgard.Not at all

    Anybody else get a dorky Lou Diamond Phillips vibe from him?!

  7. aims says:

    She’s another one who can’t be alone. I’m really turned off by it and it makes her look sad and desperate. I really don’t like people who can’t be alone.

  8. blue marie says:

    why the hell would you “announce” a relationship? that’s ridiculous..

  9. lunchcoma says:

    I was going to cast some shade about being unable to be single, but that dude is hot, and I have a hard time combining contempt with envy.

  10. epiphany says:

    Watch and learn kids – this is how famewhoring is done!

  11. RobN says:

    I’m pro serial dater, so good for her. She’s not one who’s always getting engaged, she just dates, nothing wrong with that. He’s hot, she’s single, have fun.

    I’m not a big fan of hers, but the dating thing is the least annoying thing about her. I’m pretty sure the most annoying is her friendship with Mario Lopez.

  12. AnnE says:

    WoW – would not have recognized her, face looks so different.

  13. GirlyGirl says:

    Technically is she still a celebrity?

  14. Gistine says:

    Whooooooo cares? She is a has been!
