Mrs Carter: Why does a Hollywood dinner always mean more when it comes to the media?
The New York Post’s page six is matching ‘Desperate Housewives’ star Eva Longoria with another basketball player, this time it’s L.A. Lakers Forward Matt Barnes, but is there any truth to this romance or were they just having dinner with some friends?
The Post claims that the pair was “very flirty” and that there was “a spark” between them at the dinner, and although the report included a statement from Eva’s representative insisting that they are just friends, Longoria is still annoyed at the speculation that there was anything more going on besides eating dinner. Eva decided to clear up the rumors herself on her WhoSay page, saying;
“First Jessica Simpson, now this. Once again, press gets it wrong, Matt Barnes and I are not dating! We are doing a charity event together for Padres and Athletes vs Cancer. . Why is the truth never the headline? why did I bother to comment when they put your statement at end of articles? #stillannoying”
Eva is said to be currently dating Eduardo Cruz, Penelope Cruz’s brother, so clearly there wasn’t anything more than friendship going on between Longoria and Barnes.
