It's no secret that Mario Lopez and Eva Longoria are best friends, and just hours after Us Weekly broke the story that Longoria filed for divorce from her husband Tony Parker, the Desperate Housewives star gave her good friend Mario the first exclusive interview about the split.
“She is devastated, she wants us all to know that," Lopez reported on ExtraTV.com. “But she’s strong,” he adds.
Lopez explains that despite rumors that Tony filed for divorce from Eva in Texas on Tuesday, Eva tells him that she is the one who filed divorce papers, after finding hundreds of text messages from another woman on Parker's phone. Eva also revealed that the woman sending Tony the texts turned out to be the wife of one of his San Antonio Spurs teammates.
Even worse, Eva tells Mario that this isn't the first time she's caught Tony cheating. Earlier in their marriage, Tony had an affair with another married woman, whom Eva says he kept in touch with on Facebook.
In our November cover story, Eva told us she loves spending time with Tony during the holidays, but this year she says she’ll spend time with her friends and lean on them and her Desperate Housewives costars for support.
No doubt her good friend Mario will be there by her side to see her through the tough times.
