Eva Longoria has some advice for Jessica Simpson.
Longoria, who is married to San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker, says Simpson is taking unnecessary heat from Dallas Cowboys fans who blame the 27-year-old singer’s weekend trip to Mexico with her boyfriend, quarterback Tony Romo, for the Cowboys’ defeat by the New York Giants.
“People gave me that ... when I started dating Tony,” Longoria, star of ABC’s “Desperate Housewives,” said in an interview Monday with E! Entertainment Television’s “Daily 10.”
“If he had a bad game they’d blame me. If he, uh, you know, had an injury, it’s like, ‘What did you do to him?”’ the 32-year-old actress laughed.
“Believe me, they are not thinking about us when they’re on the court, when they’re on the field,” she said of Parker and Romo. “It’s like they’ve got a little more important things to do.”
Longoria, who wed Parker last July, also shot down speculation that she’s pregnant.
“I’ve just gained weight from being on strike,” she said, referring to the Hollywood writers strike. “I don’t know who sits in a room and makes up stuff; it’s really comical sometimes.”
Last month, Parker, 25, sued a celebrity gossip Web site for publishing stories that alleged he had an affair with a French model. He’s seeking at least $40 million in damages.
“The Internet rumor is the first time we actually sued,” Longoria said. “Because it ... went a little too far. And for it being so false and so not true, it was like, ‘Wow, really.”’
