Does texting count as cheating? If you are Eva Longoria, the answer is yes — and it is a deal breaker. The “Desperate Housewives” star (no, we are not going to make a joke about the show’s title — you are welcome) has filed for divorce from Tony Parker, and it turns out he did not even have a physical relationship with the woman.
Though the NBA star did have a “sexting relationship” with Erin Barry — the wife of his former Spurs teammate Brent Barry — “they never had a physical relationship,” sources told TMZ. The flirtation — or whatever you want to call it — is said to have ended months ago.
“They knew each other, sent each other messages,” a source told People magazine. “It was flirtatious, but he never did anything with her.”
Brent filed for divorce from Erin, his former high school sweetheart, on Oct. 29; they married in 1998 and have two sons.
Eva, pal Mario Lopez said, “is devastated — she wants us all to know that. But she’s strong.”Amber Charged
Things just seem to keep becoming worse for “Teen Mom” Amber Portwood. Weeks after audiences were shocked to see her caught on camera hitting and kicking baby daddy Gary Shirley, police in Anderson, Ind., have formally brought domestic violence charges against her.
The 20-year-old mom of daughter Leah, 2, was filmed assaulting her then-fiance in front of their child, who is now in his care.
She now faces two felony charges and one misdemeanor, which could mean up to three years behind bars and a fine of up to $10,000.
“According to police documents, on Aug. 14, 2009, Portwood shoved Shirley against a wall, slapped him on the face and choked him. The incident was witnessed by the couple’s 1-year-old child who sat in a child seat on a nearby bed,” a police report said. “On June 14, 2010, Portwood was videotaped slapping Shirley five times, punching him three times and kicking him at least once. Finally, on July 18, 2010, Portwood is again videotaped in the presence of their child slapping Shirley in the face, and punching him several more times in the face and upper body.”
As Scoop! told you Thursday, underage Amber is allegedly partying her troubles away with drinking, pills and making out with guys.
This is just a sad story, and we hope that for Leah’s sake Amber seeks help.Shame Game
Bristol Palin said she is under fire from “haters” who cannot believe her subpar moves made the final “Dancing With the Stars” cut. But dancer Maksim Chmerkovsky is not happy that she pegged him as one of them.
The pro hoofer, who was eliminated with partner Brandy, was not happy that the teen mom declared to In Touch magazine that “Maks does not like me. He thinks I don’t deserve to be here because I’m not the best dancer.”
“I felt really disappointed with Bristol,” Maksim told E! Online. “On Monday night, I found out that she went on record saying that I said something about her along the lines of, ‘I don’t like her because she’s still here and she’s not a good enough dancer.’
“For her to come out on Monday night and totally smear my name the way she did, that’s just completely uncalled for. I have no idea where she got it from, but wherever she got it from, shame on her and shame on whoever told her that.”
Yeah, we have no idea where she got the idea that he does not like her. No idea at all.Kitty Raymond is an entertainment writer and astrologer. She welcomes feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
