Eva Longoria Discusses Tough Times

Eva Longoria has treaded through her post-divorce rough patch just fine. Not long after her split from Tony Parker, she started dating Eduardo Cruz and has been promoting her new cook book, Eva’s Kitchen.

Hollyscoop caught up with Eva at the GLAD Benefit and asked her how she gets through tough times.

“Every time I go through a tough time I just lean on my family,” Longoria told us.

Longoria also discussed with Hollyscoop why she takes the time to support causes: “I always think it’s important to bring awareness to minority or a minority population and whether your Latino or black or a woman or deaf, it still falls into that category of needing support from people who aren’t normally around this type of population,” Longoria told us.

“I come from a diverse background of people with special needs, because of my sister, so I’m happy to bring my voice to this cause.”

The Glad Benefit was in support of the deaf and hard of hearing communities. Longoria attended the event to support celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves.

“He’s one of my best friends,” Longoria said. “Anything that’s close to him is close to me.”

Longoria has taken up sign language herself, and it’s already come in handy.

Longoria says, “I’ve had a lot of deaf people who have bought my book and I’ve been able to talk to them about what my favorite recipe is and what to cook.”
