She’s got the official job of cheerleading for Barack Obama‘s re-lection campaign, Eva Longoria was all smiles as she moves forward doing her job.
As a Tex-Mex knockout of the American dream in effect, Eva is always so adroit and capable.
Current Election Status USA: Either Romney or Obama could win. Close.

In Gabrielle Gardiner Angels news:
Hekia Parata News: “I absolutely am… I’m asking you to get our names right. It starts with pronouncing them correctly.”–NZ’s Minister of Education to the teachers PPTA.
Well, cue us some Aretha tracks right now, cos that was some direct coaching on acknowledging Maori & Pasifika kids total presence in New Zealand’s education system.
“Hearing from or engaging with?” is what Lady Gardiner put to the PPTA crew when communicating how she likes to be engaged with. Simon Dallow, Miriama Kamo and Daniel Faitaua have the news.
Eva Longoria News: Eva breezed into town for a publicity star appearance. She believes Obama is the right President for the US, though she wasn’t in town to yak about that. She’s strictly on a promotional excursion. Good to see her on Kiwi TV. Watch clip with Ruth Wynn-Williams.
A Maori princess and a Tex-Mex Hollywood maiden. Fabulous, forceful and no nonsense stars of the world. Good press. Surreal magical news TV.

For Eduardo Cruz love is a walk over coffee with your Oscar winning sister’s good friend, Eva Longoria. Happy Valentines beautiful people. Already these two good looking Hollywood kids are appearing comfortably twin-hearted. Close knit ties.
It’s a mellow day in Hollywood post the Grammys. Everyone appears to be happy and in a good mood. The power of music in Los Angeles. We love it all. As I blog Neil Diamond‘s Love Song plays. Lyrics follow below. I like the thought of Love is the key we must turn. Truth is the flame we must burn. Freedom’s the lesson we learned. Do you know what I mean? Have your eyes really seen?
Hollywood entertainment and celebrity news voted across 50 nations in the world. Here are the top stories you searched for today.
Again - Love is the key we must turn. Truth is the flame we must burn. Freedom’s the lesson we learned. Do you know what I mean? Have your eyes really seen?
Thrice then - Love is the key we must turn. Truth is the flame we must burn. Freedom’s the lesson we learned. Do you know what I mean? Have your eyes really seen. :)
Espanol of the Day:
Si hablo las lenguas de los hombres y aun de los ángeles, pero no tengo amor, no soy más que un metal que resuena o un platillo que hace ruido. Y si tengo el don de profecía, y entiendo todos los designios secretos de Dios, y sé todas las cosas, y si tengo la fe necesaria para mover montañas, pero no tengo amor, no soy nada. Y si reparto entre los pobres todo lo que poseo, y aun si entrego mi propio cuerpo para tener de qué enorgullecerme, pero no tengo amor, de nada me sirve.
Tener amor es saber soportar; es ser bondadoso; es no tener envidia, ni ser presumido, ni orgulloso, ni grosero, ni egoísta; es no enojarse ni guardar rencor; es no alegrarse de las injusticias, sino de la verdad. Tener amor es sufrirlo todo, creerlo todo, esperarlo todo, soportarlo todo.
El amor jamás dejará de existir. Un día el don de profecía terminará, y ya no se hablará en lenguas, ni serán necesarios los conocimientos. Porque los conocimientos y la profecía son cosas imperfectas, que llegarán a su fin cuando venga lo que es perfecto.
Cuando yo era niño, hablaba, pensaba y razonaba como un niño; pero al hacerme hombre, dejé atrás lo que era propio de un niño. Ahora vemos de manera indirecta, como en un espejo, y borrosamente; pero un día veremos cara a cara. Mi conocimiento es ahora imperfecto, pero un día conoceré a Dios como él me ha conocido siempre a mí.
Tres cosas hay que son permanentes: la fe, la esperanza y el amor; pero la más importante de las tres es el amor.

Sometimes I feel like a waterfall in West Hollywood, that just won’t stop. Where the water comes from within the spirit that feels dry, jaded, tired on grey winters days, ironically on days when it pours with rain – I don’t know.
One thing I do know, is that 2 million innocent children, die each year in our world, on our watch, regardless of what flags we wave above our heads, or what parades we have under them for whatever reasons to gratify our own sense of worth and identity. While our flags flap around in the wind, the lives of these children do too and many die because they don’t have access to clean drinking water. They get sick, their lives and their potential in this world are cut short.
Sometimes I wish, that people who are told and even say themselves that they are Kings & Queens would rise up like the legend of Moses in a dry desert, and take the wooden staff of their generation’s destiny and dare to strike the rock of greed, of apathy, or blindness, of entitlement, of nationalism, of hatred, of extreme and costly ‘paper gangsta’ capitalism, of those attitudes of detachment masked in those nonhuman words ‘that’s them and not us,’ of leader’s pride, human blind spots and prejudices; and our own too judging these leaders who are at best, mirrors of ourselves that we elected in many cases (or, the flip side too of letting go of the paralyzing and crippling fear of extreme loss and grief that inevitably follows in that degree of sudden loss too, it’s all the same constructed coin)–and these royals of the earth would say “enough, let these children go free” and cause water to flow to children they don’t know, whose parents they’ve never seen, whose dreams are more real than us at times or our bank balance or the figure we are told of our paper worth or lack of, or the excitement in our allocated and imagined carbon credit worth too. We are so green thinking these days!
[Excuse the Kerouac-esque lack of punctuating all proper, in that last paragraph].
Then I realise, sh*t, these Kings and Queens are on this blog everyday. They’re you and on a good day – I could be in your good company too. On a good day. Giving the gift of water to someone else is perhaps the most powerful thing we can do in the 2010′s. One of the true signs we have actually evolved with all of enjoyment and claims of new technology et al that have radically changed our lives. Giving water and saying to someone else, “I love you and you are much loved” are two simple yet vital things we can do each day.
Feliz Navidad this season from Cali. :)

James Franco and Anne Hathaway have apparently been offered the role to co-host the Oscars next year. Both have reportedly accepted. Eva Longoria - though facing divorce, is planning to adopt a child from Haiti anyway, something she’s long had in the works. Good for her!

TMZ is loving running pics of Eva Longoria and Erin Barry who sat next to each other 3 years ago at a San Antonio Spurs basketball game.
The ladies shared jokes, laughter, sporting enthusiasm like close friends. Three years later, and Longoria claims her hubby Tony Parker has been texting Erin in ‘sexting’ way, hence Longoria filing for divorce.
~Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. 11.21.10~
Speaking to People, Tony Parker says of his divorce case with wife, actor Eva Longoria these things:
Parker denied a report– that he went to court first. “Eva and I have been discussing our situation privately. I was aware that she would be filing for divorce in Los Angeles. “I did not file for divorce in Texas and did not hire divorce attorneys in either Texas or California. We plan to continue to keep our discussions of this matter private,” said Parker via his rep.
The fact that Tony is not turning this issue into a publicity spectacle perhaps indicates that he wants to stay with his wife.
Actors are always dramatic. With so many splits occurring as show biz news right now, perhaps Eva feels she’s being totally normally filing for divorce right now with her celebrity peers. However, let’s see if Longoria will stick with him. This brotha from France is only 28. He’s achieved so much and yet he’s learning like all of us. Perhaps he deserves another chance.
Unlike many other basketball players, Tony’s had to tuxedo up so many times to keep his wife happy to fulfill her star commitments, surely that counts for something in Texas? and California.

Her best friend, Jessica Simpson is garnering mad tabloid headlines with the most romantic engagement story in America right now, with her beau Eric Johnson.
This is not the case for Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives fame.
The latina princess of Texas is seriously contemplating divorce from her basketballer French beau Tony Parker. Here’s a quick recap on the star couples divorce proceedings to date:
1. Yesterday the Longoria-Parkers allegedly wanted to divorce.
2. Eva’s rep denied the news yesterday.
3. Today though, People claim that Eva has filed for divorce for reals.
4. Eva is apparently distraught after filing in Los Angeles court.
5. UsWeekly’s claim that Tony has been sexting a wife of a fellow basketball team mate, which is reported to have sparked the star couple’s split.
It’s all quite sad really. Such a good couple together when they were “on.”

She’s a Latina who sizzles. Eva Longoria is such a global superstar. It’s so easy to forget that in the US watching her on her staple housewives show, appearing like familiar TV wallpaper of America.
As an MC of pop culture, she can’t rap to save Nicki Minaj‘s next wig change, but Eva still represents as an A-Listed latina.
French toast? What’s that got to do with the EMA’s. Lol!

Actress Eva Longoria took like a duck to water, as she nursed a friend’s baby while noshing down on a pasta lunch at Cafe Med on Sunset Plaza.
Aunty Eva has a cute ring to it.

Because Lady Gaga was unavailable today (she’s filming her “hot like Mexico” music video here in LA, reflecting back the same message from the City of Angels instead) the beautiful Beyonce Knowles was seen heading to The White House to sing this evening, Wednesday 19th May 2010.
Mexico’s President Felipe Calderon and first lady Margarita Zavala are guests of honor for the Obamas. Mexican duo Rodrigo y Gabriela and the United States Marine Band are singing too.
Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria, Salma Hayek, (aka The Robin Hood Cannes latina and gorgeous, red carpet diva-ettes), Oprah Winfrey and George Lopez. were also invited.
Sounds a bit like… this blog (allegedly!!!)… a bigger blast than oil rigs exploding off the Coast of Mexico’s Gulf in flames! Love it.
And what really irks me, is that inspite of some of the most exciting people in the world, being present at this prestigious dinner party tonight… that Carlos Slim Helu, the richest bloke in the world, (and Mexico’s other president who owns most of Mexico’s infrastructure and telecommunications too) couldn’t even be bothered turning up.
When you have two of America’s #1 divas of pop, warbling a lesbian Telephone pop song, and all of these power players at the table too–that must have been a little bit disappointing, not to have Carlos present.
His biz model is one that America should adapt asap to aid America’s economy quicker. Slim Helu knows a thing or ten about how to make a buck. Fixing the immigration laws could help a little, in Arizona though, to get his attention. No one likes a strained welcome. But perhaps next dinner party, the Obamas will be successful.
That was America today, pretty much.

The good people at Forbes Magazine have released their list of Top-Earning couples in show biz.
As we think of the nation of Haiti today, here’s who earned what, in the romance stakes of entertainment earners in 2009.
Click on Beyonce, Angelina’s, Jay-Z’s and Brad Pitt’s names to donate to Haiti if you want to.
The Jolie-Pitts may earn less than Jay-Z and Beyonce, but they’ve already donated a million dollars to Haiti relief. Shine on. Congrats to all couples in this list.
2. Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford earned $69 million.
5. David and Victoria Beckham earned $46 million.
6. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi earned $36 million.
7. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson made $35.5 million.
8.Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy earned $34 million.
9. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes made $33.5 million.
10. Chris Martin and Gwenneth Paltrow brought in $33 million.
11. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick earned $29 million.
12. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill made $28 million.
13. Eva Longoria Parker and Tony Parker collectively made $22 million.
14. Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelly earned $20 million.
15. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban made $17 million.
Um… what about Britney Spears and Jason Trawicke? They earned a bom in 2009 with Brit Brit’s Circus Tour. Also… isn’t there a need for an Asian-America super star couple to arise in show biz in America? I think so. That would be very groovy.
… both appear in London Fog Magazine.
Why Eva is baring her back to cam, only Tony knows. Loving the Burberry Sherlock Holmes trench coat though. Eva is kinda very London town, with an International Latina American twist. Actually, Burberry is very Christchurch New Zealand old school aristocracy too. Love it!.– Just Jared
To visit, Eva Longoria’s restaurant, Besos jewel of the LA dining scene, go here to check out her menu. The tortilla soup, a family recipe of Eva’s is second to none. Besos is like an extension of Eva’s living room for Hollywood stars to chill out at, mainly. The restaurant vibe is loungy chic with chandellier elegance.
Not like, Hamburger Mary’s in West Hollywood. But both restaurant hot spots in LA, have their respective charm. :)
Covering French Magazine, Citizen K, Latina hottie, Eva Longoria of Desperate Housewives fame, ups the anti with an alien-chic photo shoot.
Vampires are soon to be out and aliens are the next big theme of Hollywood for 2010-1012. Not a bad photo shoot from Longoria. Very futuristic.
This post brought to you by le Clafoutis restaurant, Sunset Plaza, Hollywood California. Eva Longoria also owns Besos restaurant here in LA. Hollywood stars eat at both restaurants each week.
