Yesterday it was announced that Eva Longoria and Tony Parker were separating after 7 years together (and 3 years of marriage). The news rocked the entertainment industry and left many wondering how a seemingly healthy marriage could crumble so fast.
Today, reports are surfacing that Eva Longoria’s friend (or should we say former friend) Erin Barry may be the reason for the divorce. Why? Because sources claim that Erin (who is married to Tony’s friend and former teammate Brent Barry) and Tony had been having an affair for quite some time, hiding their relationship from their spouses.
Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush said he contacted Erin for comment and here’s what happened:
“We spoke to erin barry…Brent Barry’s wife from San Antonio Spurs” Bush Tweeted, “…she cried and said ‘No comment.’ TP was texting her.”

According to some sources, Eva found over 100 text messages between Tony and Erin – just within the last month. Eva broke her silence yesterday and told Mario Lopez she is “devastated” by the split and “totally and completely blindsided” by Tony’s infidelity.
News of an affair would definitely explain why Eva Longoria was so quick to file for divorce. On Tuesday she told the press the divorce reports were “100 percent untrue” and yesterday she filed the papers, confirming the rumors were true.
If this is the case, I hope Tony and Erin live unhappily ever after. Eva is too hot for Tony anyways – he kind of looks like a mix between and alien and a sexual predator (in my opinion, of course).
Erin may have lost a friend in Eva Longoria but I’m sure she can give Leann Rimes a call. After all, they seem to have a lot in common…
