Eva Longoria and Tony Parker are hoping that the number seven will bring them luck.
The “Desperate Housewives” star got engaged to the San Antonio Spurs guard in November after a two-year romance that had its ups and downs, and are planning to get married on July 7, 2007, because Parker thinks the date is lucky, according to Us Weekly.
“Tony is extremely superstitious and thinks 07-07-07 is the day most lucky to get married on,” a source told the mag.
The couple plans to get hitched at Château de Chantilly, a “fairy-tale-like” castle north of Paris, reports Us, which adds that designer Monique Lhuillier will create the wedding dress.

Longoria, 31, will head to France next month with event planner Mindy Weiss to work on details of the nuptials, along with 24-year-old Parker’s mother, Pamela. “Tony wants [his mother] to feel that it’s her day as well as his and Eva’s,” a source told the mag.
Longoria’s rep would say only: “She’s still working out all the details. Nothing is confirmed.”
The dancing Duchess
Sarah Ferguson won’t be “Dancing With the Stars.”
The Duchess of York had expressed interest in appearing in the hit show, but talks fell apart.
“Although she’d love to do it, she’s just too busy,” and a spokeswoman for the red-headed royal explained.
A source believes, however, that real reason the royal won’t rumba on the show has more to do with cash than time.
“Fergie is very busy, it’s true,” says the source. “But she also comes with a very high price tag.”
Notes from all over
Fiona Mills posted a note on her sister Heather Mills McCartney’s Web site, blasting former Beatle Paul McCartney and his treatment of his estranged wife — but toned it down, apparently worried that it would hurt her sister’s divorce battle. . . . Pierce Brosnan’s nude scene in “Seraphim Falls” was cut — but not for reasons of decency. “There was one scene that they shot where I was completely naked, but we cut that out. It was too much of a distraction,” the former James Bond star told MoviesOnline. “They had the fur coat around me and they took it away and it was just him huddled by the fire in this kind of Rodan-esque frame. It didn’t really work in the film.” . . . Donald Trump has some advice for Britney Spears: get back to work. “She wants some free time but now, Britney, it’s time to settle down and get back to work,” opined the mogul. “It’s time to get back to being a mother and being a star.”
