Eva Longoria divorce reports stunned a lot of people. However, as the Eva Longoria divorce rumors get sleazier, fewer and fewer onlookers will be surprised. This is shaping up to be the same old story, as a sports icon is once more rumored to be a cheater and adulterer. Although Tony Parker was married to a TV star and glamor icon, recent rumors suggest that it wasn’t enough for him. Parker will be at the center of the nastiest rumors, although the divorce leaves Longoria in a difficult position as well.
Already, reports and allegations are swirling about Parker, as he is rumored to have cheated with a teammate’s wife. Currently, Brent Barry’s soon-to-be-ex-wife Erin is the prime suspect, as he allegedly “sexted” her with text messages.
This development is said to have made Longoria divorce Parker, and was confirmed by a friend of hers. Mario Lopez confirmed that she found hundreds of suspicious text messages on Parker’s phone, but didn’t say who sent them. Even if she and her friends are staying mum on that detail, the blogs and gossip columns have narrowed it down anyway.
For the second time in almost exactly a year, a high-profile sports athlete has been accused of cheating on his wife. So far, they have only found one possible mistress for Parker, and are unlikely to find a Tiger Woods-esque harem of other women. Yet this scandal is still in the early stages, and the dirt has just begun to pile up.
The difference between that and the Longoria divorce is that Parker isn’t the most famous one in this duo. Although Parker has been an important part of the Spurs’ dynasty, Longoria has an even more public profile from her years on Desperate Housewives. By that standard, Parker is the Elin Nordegrin of this marriage, as he is famous, but not as much as his wife is.
Of course, Parker is the cheater in this case, whereas Nordegrin was the victim in hers. Yet that didn’t stop the press from spreading rumors on Nordegrin, particularly involving Thanksgiving night last year. She came out ahead, especially in the divorce settlement with Woods, but she was also battered in the rumor mill.
So far, the divorce has Parker as the clear villain and focus. Yet, as this goes on, Parker’s future ex will also attract attention, and speculation over her state of mind. Will she get the kind of support Sandra Bullock did when her husband cheated, or will she be the focus of her own rumor mill like Nordegrin – or something in between?
