For the first time since her marriage to Tony Parker came crumbling down, Eva Longoria is opening up about divorce. On Piers Morgan on CNN to promote her cookbook, the actress broke down, saying divorce was “heartbreaking.”
As the video below will confirm, Eva was somewhat taken by surprise by Piers Morgan’s question about the divorce, but she decided to answer it either way.
Perhaps not even she expected to have such a hard time speaking about her failed marriage to Parker, as she hints at one point.
Eva says one of the worst things after the separation was finding her identity again since, understandably, she could no longer think of herself as “Mrs. Parker.”
“It was heartbreaking. It’s the first time I’m talking about it, so I’m sorry,” Eva said, visibly struggling with her tears, when Morgan asked her how she felt when “the fairytale was over.”
“It was disappointing because I had such an identity in being Mrs. Parker and being a wife. And, so, when that’s taken away from you, you go, ‘Who am I?’ It was hard,” the actress said.
In time, though, she got over it – and she’s already moving on with her life, as her blooming romance with Eduardo Cruz, the brother of Penelope Cruz, seems to confirm.
One thing that she promises she will never do is to badmouth Tony for his share of the blame in the divorce (word has it he cheated on her).
“I would never speak ill about him or the time we had together. I really, really valued it. Seven years together’s a long time,” Longoria said.
“I love the concept of marriage and I love being a wife. You know, we tried our hardest. We really, really tried and it just didn’t work. We wanted different things,” the star added.
Eva was also on David Letterman the other day, also doing promo duties for the book but, as we also noted at the time, that meeting was less emotional and more on the funny side.
