Eva Longoria reached a high rank in her career not only as an actress but also as a filmmaker, director, and businesswoman with a flourishing clothing line. Famous for her role in Desperate Housewives, Longoria began to explore the glitz and glamour of Hollywood in the 2000s and has blamed her strong sense of discipline for the colossal success she has achieved. With her constant eye on her career, she continues to enjoy steady fame, and this fame will not soon fade.
Biography of Eva Longoria
The award-winning actress and filmmaker were born in Texas on March 15, 1975, as the son of the Mexican-American couple Ella Eva and Enrique Longoria. She attended Texas A&M University Kingsville, where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. She also holds a Master’s degree in Chicano Studies from California State University Northridge.
The starlet decided to pursue a career in Hollywood after she struggled with the low self-esteem she had as a teenager. Without wasting time, she was discovered by the Tinseltown talent specialists and had her first stage appearance in the production of What the Rabbit Saw. Soon after, her talent was used in many other small film roles, including the TV series Beverly Hills 90210. But in 2004, the starlet was added to the cast of Desperate Housewives. The show, which showcased her beauty and acting talent at the same time, offered her an opportunity to rise to a desirable stage in her profession. Her position in the industry was strengthened in 2006 by her performance in The Sentinel, among others. Since then, she has maintained her importance in the film world and has even expanded her already busy portfolio to include production alongside other money-making ventures.
Eva grew up in a close-knit family that practiced Roman Catholicism. Her parents have a total of four daughters and she is the youngest of them. Her sisters are Esmeralda Josephina Longoria, Elizabeth Judina Longoria, and Emily Jeannette Longoria. As a child, Eva lacked self-confidence mainly because she was considered the ugliest of her three sisters due to her dark skin color. But when she won the title of Miss Corpus Christie in 1998, her self-confidence was strengthened and the uncertainties she might have suffered disappeared. This may be due to her rise to international fame, which she enjoys today.
Husband & Daughter
Eva Longoria has a way around her career, but apparently you can’t say the same about her love life. Beauty has been married several times. First, she was married to her actor colleague Tyler Christopher, who is known for his role at the General Hospital. Unfortunately, her relationship with the actor lasted only two years, from 2002 to 2004.
While the scar in her heart was probably still open, she was emotionally connected to the famous Tony Parker. They got engaged in 2006 and got married the following year in public service in a community hall. In July of the same year, they continued to marry in a Catholic church known as Saint-GermanI’ Auxerrois Church in Paris. The fans thought that this time Longoria had finally made the right decision, but surprisingly, after a few years, she filed for divorce, citing insurmountable differences.
It was revealed that the actress had confided to a friend, Mario Lopez, that Parker was sending a message to another woman. The woman was identified as Erin Barry, the former wife of Brent Barry, Parker’s former teammate. Barry and Erin were also on the verge of divorce at the time.
In 2010, Parker responded to Longoria’s divorce petition with his own filing in Bexar County Texas, before the divorce was finalized in 2011.
It seems that Hollywobeauty took a short break from dating, but in 2015 Eva Longoria opened up about her engagement with Mexican business mogul Jose Antonio Pepe Baston Patino. Jose was at that time president of Televisa, one of the largest media companies in Latin America. They had met on a blind date arranged by a friend after Baston had previously declined the request because of his busy schedule. In 2016, they made the Covenant for Life in Mexico, and in 2018 they welcomed their first son, Santigo, who they had together.
Apparently Longoria’s acting career was a success. She has played many remarkably big profitable film roles. One of those roles was in Desperate Housewives, which earned her a salary of $325,000 to $400,000 for each episode she cast. Other sources of income, such as owning a marketable clothing line, product advertising and more, also contributed to her estimated net worth of $35 million. Yet the actress has not always had an easy time with finances. In the past, she has had to cope with some financial setbacks when her restaurant Beso, which she founded in 2008, went bankrupt by 2011.
