Well, that was quick. After Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria just confirmed last month that she and New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez were dating, word comes today that they've split.
A rep confirmed the breakup to Us Weekly saying, "There was no drama. They just have completely different schedules and lifestyles." Which is understandable. I mean she's a hot actress, and he's a hot football player. She's 37 and twice divorced; and he's one of the most eligible bachelors in the country who's been linked to everyone from Kate Upton to Hayden Panettiere. A source told the magazine, "He likes to go out and have fun. She's more focused on her career and her philanthropic work."
I don't want to say they had no chance from the beginning, but if there was one, it was a small one. I'm just glad they figured out they weren't meant to be before things got too far ... or Eva decided to get inked again.
While with her ex, Tony Parker, she got three tattoos, and is still in the final steps of ridding herself of them. So at least this time, there's no need for any additional ink removal since as far as we know she hasn't tattooed Sanchez's jersey number or anything else on her body.
Also, this is what dating is supposed to be like -- you go out a few times, decide if you're compatible, and then move on if you're not. Only in Hollywood, it seems that any time a couple is romantically linked, suddenly they're getting married and/or pregnant a few months later ... and then divorced. They fast forward on dating so fast it's no wonder they fail at forever after.
So good for Sanchez and Longoria for figuring it out now. I'm sure they had fun while it lasted, and that counts for something. And also good for all the single ladies out there -- Mark Sanchez is on the market again!
Are you surprised to see Eva Longoria and Mark Sanchez split so soon?
