Actress Eva Longoria stopped by The Grove to chat with “Extra” host Mario Lopez – and confirmed she’s dating New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez. I guess she wanted to see how the Football guys do it, seeing that she dated NBA Tony Parker. I wonder will she tattoo his number on her?
After jokingly calling her good pal Mario an “a**hole” for asking about the rumored romance, Longoria finally said, “Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating.”
It’s not like she has a lot of time to date as she continues supporting President Barack Obama as Co-Chair of his national re-election committee.
Her speech at the Democratic National Convention was a powerful one, and Mario wondered if Eva would ever consider running for office. She laughed, “No, I think the power is in the citizen.”
Longoria is also preparing to co-host the 2012 Alma Awards with George Lopez, honoring stars like Christina Aguilera… and US swim champ Ryan Lochte?
Eva explained, “We’re honoring American Latino Olympic medalists… and Ryan’s mother is Latina!”
Finally, the busy TV star is opening a new restaurant called She in Las Vegas. “It’s kind of a female concept on the traditional boys club steakhouse.”
Make sure to catch Eva at the 2012 Alma Awards, Friday, September 21, on NBC!
