star Eva Longoria
(or, should I say, Eva Longoria Parker) has found herself in what appears to be a instance of high-stakes jealousy. Rumors began swirling recently that Longoria's new husband, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker, cheated on Longoria with a French model. The rumors stem from some MySpace messages supposedly written by Parker, inviting French model Alexandra Paressant to his hotel room in Paris. Paressant also supposedly showed an on line gossip site some text messages between herself and Parker. Longoria and Parker quickly came out and denied the claims as pure rubbish, saying that their marriage is happy as ever and that this French model is a unreliable source.
"Tony has been nothing short of the perfect husband," Longoria said in a statement. Paressant has been previously linked to soccer super star Ronaldinho, and has apparently sued athletes before by saying she hooked up with them (though I could find no source to back this claim up). Paressant supposedly met Parker at Parker and Longoria's wedding, exchanged e-mails, phone calls and text messages with Parker over the last few months, and then got together with him in the early fall when Parker visited Paris to receive an award. Tony Parker is French, so this allegation is not completely unbelievable but, as I'm sure the thought has crossed other people's minds, why would anyone cheat on Eva Longoria? It seems crazy, especially so early in a story book marriage. The quick and vehement denials from the couple are probably a strong indication that this story is nonsense, but you never know.
Basketball players are notorious for their womanizing ways, whether the stereotype is warranted or not. The amount of travel they embark on is intense, and the ladies (and French models?) tend to flock to wherever players are at. Fans of Longoria and Parker shouldn't worry, though. This is most likely a false alarm.
