May 22, 2007 (New York, NY) — “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria opens up about hosting the 2007 ALMA Awards and her summer wedding to NBA star/rapper Tony Parker for the June/July issue of Latina magazine.
Longoria praises her future husband Tony Parker (reportedly getting married July 7, 2007) and downplays their seven year age difference. “I don’t know if it’s because he’s French or what, but he’s actually far ahead of me in years with a lot of things – he’s so disciplined and way more intelligent about money and investments,” she says. “Then there’s things in which I’m ahead of him, but we balance each other out really nice, as it should be.” The couple is reportedly getting married in Paris at the Chateau de Chantilly, a castle just north of the city. “It will be a very traditional wedding…the Mexicans take over Paris!”\
Regarding her family’s take on interracial dating issues, Longoria says, “I thought it would be an issue, because of our community, but not once has it ever come up with anyone in my family, even with my real traditional Mexican grandma…They love him for who he is.”
Could the couple be following in Brangelina’s footsteps by adopting? “We both have big hearts and the finances to do it, and we want to be able to provide an environment of love and stability to a child who otherwise wouldn’t have that,” Longoria says.
