Eva Longoria: I'm in a Happy Place

Eva Longoria: I'm in a Happy Place

Eva Longoria drops by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on an episode airing Thursday (September 15).

The 36-year-old Desperate Housewives actress spoke about what she’s learned since her divorce from Tony Parker.

“I realized you cannot identify yourself through a man or through your marriage,” Eva said, “Or through a partner.”

“I think it’s our nature to be socially constructed that way. To just be inferior or subservient and you don’t have to be. You can be yourself and really hold your own by yourself no matter what partnership you’re in,” Eva added.

“I’m in a happy place. Everyone says I look younger,” Eva concluded. “Everyone keeps saying, you’ve never looked better. I’m going wow; I think divorce agrees with me.”

    thats probably one of the best things that i have ever heard from a female. it seems in this day and age, women let a man define them and think that you need a man to be considered something worthy in this world. thanks eva

    Very beautiful you are Ms. Longoria!

    glad you’re happy eva..sometimes divorce is a great thing! You seem like a good woman, and Tony will realize this too late. He will get tired of h0-kers one day too, but good women such as yourself will not want their leftover then.

    It seems to me that she is putting on a happy facade, but I totally get that. I think people do need eachother- and that being defined in a marriage (whatever gender it is) or a family unit is a fine thing, if it is a supportive loving marriage. I have a husband and son and I do define myself in relationship to them, as they are my family- I think that is a good thing! Sorry her marriage didn’t work out, they seemed in love. Maybe she could forgive him? but not if he betrayed her. I wish her well.

    of course she”ll be in a , with the rebound guy to massage her ego

    Eduardo Cruz is lucky to have such a sexy, curvaceous and sensual woman be a cougar for him.
    I’m sure that Eva’s happier with her current toyboy than she was being married to that unfaithful ex-husband of hers. He doesn’t know what he’s missing.
    Eduardo knows how sexy she is and has such strong and obvious sexual needs.

    “Everyone says I look younger” …If you’re deriving your happiness from looking younger, you’ll never truly find inner happiness.

    People who are truly at peace with themselves have a presence about them that has absolutely nothing to do with their outward appearance.

    @bobbi: sorry kid. She said it just to declare that not only she’s feeling GOOD, but that also people see her in a good way. It’s not about the younger thing itself. She’s not really that kind of girl. I always appreciated her for being such a true, humble and honest person. I’m sure she will never disappoint anyone.

    And I’m so sorry for Tony. He’s free to do what he wants with his life but he had to leave her and not cheat on her. Eva, as any other woman which is in love, didn’t deserve that. That’s why i have a very poor opinion of Tony right now. I’m sorry but I just can’t help myself. NO CHEATING, leave your wife if you don’t love her anymore, but don’t hurt someone’s feelings like this………..

    Eva is being strong and I admire her even more.
