Look, we’re not ones to start random rumors (Editor’s note: that’s an outright lie), but what, exactly, what Eva Longoria doing at last night’s edition of Dancing with the Stars?

Sure, Longoria claims she was there to cheer on an old friend, Mario Lopez.

But she also recently split from Tony Parker. As we recommend a sanity exam for the NBA star, we’re left to wonder if there wasn’t more to the timing of Longoria’s appearance.

Arriving four minutes to show time, the Desperate Housewives actress was shuttled to her seat in the front row next to Lopez’s mother. Since producers had banned clothes with messages of support for contestants, Longoria concealed her homemade black “Vote For Mario” tee under a tan blazer.

After the show, Lopez told People magazine:

“We were told that our families couldn’t wear the t-shirts. I called (Eva) and told her and she said, ‘Well, it’s too late. I already made it and I’m wearing it.’ And I said, ‘Okay, but you’re breaking the rules this week, not me!'”

Sounds flirtatious to us. Who cares if the former Saved by the Bell actor says “she’s like a sister.” With a Screech sex tape making the round, we don’t know who to trust!

Of course, Lopez and partner, Karina Smirnoff, have been rumored to be dating. They deny it, however.

“[We’re] a couple of nuts!” Lopez joked.

No, really, he said that.

Finally, in regard to their performance Tuesday, Smirnoff stated: “The music is from such a powerful movie, Desperado. We really aimed to be Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek tonight. I hope it came across.”

“(Salma Hayek) wishes she looked as good as Karina did tonight,” said Lopez.

Right. No way they’re together.
