Eva Longoria and Matt Barnes? That's the rumor of the day.
Having divorced San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker in 2010, Eva was rumored to be dating Matt after the New York Post reported a dalliance on Sunday.
The Texas-born actress "may have her eye on a new baller," they said, noting that the two were "very flirty" while dining with friends in NYC Thursday.
"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 and a lot of eye contact."
Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan broke up last week, and the NBA is locked out, freeing him up to potentially court Longoria. But she says it's not true. At all.
The 36-year-old Desperate Housewives star slammed the story on her Who Say account, "First Jessica Simpson, now this. Once again, press gets it wrong."
"Let me be very clear, Matt Barnes and I are not dating!"
Jessica Simpson is pregnant though. We got that right.
"We are doing a charity event together for Padres and Athletes vs. Cancer," Eva explained further. "Why is the truth never the headline? Why did I bother to comment when they put your statement at end of articles? #stillannoying."
The eternal question of the celebrity gossip age.
