'Housewives' star to wed
NEW YORK - Her marriage didn't work out on "Desperate Housewives," but things are looking rosy in real life for Eva Longoria: She's engaged to her beau, basketball star Tony Parker.
"Tony flew into Los Angeles last night after his game and surprised Eva at her home as she got off work," Liza Anderson said Thursday via e-mail.
"The proposal was romantic and perfect. The couple plans to wed in France in the summer of 2007 in what they describe as a big, happy ceremony with lots of family and friends."
Never miss a local story.
The 31-year-old Longoria, who plays crafty Gabrielle Solis on the hit ABC show, met Parker, a 24-year-old Frenchman, in the San Antonio Spurs' locker room after a game two years ago.
Longoria divorced Tyler Christopher, who stars on ABC's "General Hospital," in 2004, after two years of marriage.
