Eva Longoria‘s love life is once again in the news, as the NY Post’s Page Six reports that Eva and Los Angeles Laker Matt Barnes shared a “flirty dinner” in New York City last Thursday (Oct. 27). A spy at the restaurant tells Page Six, “There was definitely a spark between Eva and Matt. They weren’t seated next to each other, but you could tell there was something between them. There was a little hand-holding over the table and a lot of eye contact.”
But the report goes on to include a statement from Longoria’s rep denying any romance. It is included in the post and says, “Eva and Matt are friends and are working together doing charity work for Eva’s Padres Contra El C�ncer. She was at the dinner amongst her other friends.”
Longoria took to Twitter to also set the record straight:
“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, in fact, still going strong with her boyfriend Eduard Cruz, the younger brother to actress Penelope Cruz.
