It’s a new day for the “Desperate Housewives” actress, as her divorce from San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker was only recently finalized.
“I’m used to always being on a plane and flying to a basketball game,” she says. “Every time I talk about it, I want to cry. It’s been hard. Very hard. I’m just trying to get through it as gracefully as possible without any drama.”
She’s getting through the heartache with the help from her gal-pals, even sharing her home with two friends.
“We always say that my house is the female ‘Entourage,'” she explains of her roomies, who watch over the house while she’s away and watch over her when she’s home. “When you go through something as devastating as a divorce, you just want to be surrounded by people who care for you… I don’t know what I’d do without them.”
Her housemates aren’t the only ones she’s leaned on for support. Longoria has found sanctuary with her “Desperate Housewives” co-stars.
“Two actors who I lean on heavily for life advice are Marcia Cross and Felicity [Huffman]. We’re like sisters,” she says. “You know, some people collect plates and stamps and coins. I collect amazing, smart, interesting women.”
