What seemed like an odd couple may have been just too odd. Sanchez said Longoria is too involved in her career to want to do what 25-year-olds do. Makes sense, since she is obviously in a different place in her life.
It’s only been a month since Eva Longoria finally confirmed she was dating Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, but it looks like the relationship is already over. Sanchez confirmed the news to Us Weekly.
“Mark adores and respects Eva,” a rep for Sanchez told the magazine. “It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends.”
Longoria has been busy lately working on President Obama’s re-election campaign as well as her own career. It makes sense that the 25-year-old is in a different place in his life than the 37-year old actress.
“He likes to go out and have fun,” a source told the Los Angeles Times. “She’s more focused on her career and her philanthropic work.”
Back in September, Mario Lopez of Extra asked the actress about the rumored relationship, which she had managed to avoid talking about publicly before then.
“Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy — just dating,” she told Lopez. The couple had been rumored to be dating for months before she confirmed the relationship.
Longoria split from husband Tony Parker only a year ago, but she has been keeping busy since then. According to the LA Times, before dating Sanchez she was linked to Eduardo Cruz, brother of Penelope Cruz. Sanchez has been linked to Jamie Lynn-Sigler and Kate Upton.
With the breakup, both Longoria and Sanchez will go back on their respective most eligible bachelor/bachelorette lists. There is a good chance that both stars will have no problem meeting someone new — and most likely someone more similar to themselves. And Longoria will have more time on her hands after the election is over. She is currently a co-chair of the president’s re-election committee and will be out of that job after election day on Nov. 6, no matter who wins.
