Sex Tape[edit]

Sex Tape! Oh tell me it is true! Surprised no one has spoken about it yet. LegoTrip 10:35, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

I do believe I have to disappoint you (unless it is posted on more exclusive sites and formats). My guesses are that the video people are talking about, is this http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/5216488a3b (ps, not funny!). --85.164.93.115 16:52, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Doesn't there need to be a mention of the sex tape on here? I don't see it anywhere on the page. Even if it isn't real, this is the 2nd time the rumor has happened. Makes it worth mentioning. 68.55.150.25 02:07, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

No. We're not a tabloid, so no need to report 'rumors'. The comedy bit mentioned above doesn't really seem all that notable. Kuru talk 02:42, 8 October 2007 (UTC)
Look, i thought the sex tape thing was real, so i came here and checked and there was nothing on it, why not simply put that rumors say there is a sex tape but we are not 100% as of yet. --Metal to the Max! 12:22, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
Again, this isn't the Weekly World News, it's an encyclopedic article. Please read through WP:BLP when you have an opportunity. Kuru talk 21:43, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Better picture[edit]

Initially I had wanted to switch to a more recent and higher-resolution picture, but I realized the article was looking a big congested. I removed one of the pictures because the article is too short and it seemed like the pictures were taking up too much space. Maybe if we can expand on this article then we can include more pictures. Hrana98 07:31, 30 July 2005 (UTC)

filmography[edit]

Why the box for the filmography? Much more famous actresses have simpler filmography listings than this (e.g. Michelle Pfeiffer, Rita Hayworth, Lucille Ball, etc.). Is there a standard format for filmography? - IstvanWolf 05:50, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

I believe every page needs a picture of some sort this is a good enough standard for a wiki page, but it still needs the picture to be complete.

There's a (free) image there now. —ShadowHalo 01:21, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

Language[edit]

Is she bilingual? Does she speak Spanish? --Speakslowly 07:48, 17 October 2006 (UTC)´

I live in Spain, and when they've interviewed her here, they've always done it in English: which leads me to believe that she might know some words because of her background, but doesn't speak it. J.Harrison

She does however speak French quite well. Not terrificly well, but not bad either. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.58.147.83 (talk) 01:40, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Exernal Link Request[edit]

I have a external link request for a website that has unique and valuable information of numerous people that are also listed on Wikipedia. Who Is Your Sponsor? is similar to imdb.com but instead of movie or acting information we have a database of people (celebrities, mucicians, althetes, etc.) with lists of the companies that they sponsor and vise versa. On the persons page we have a list of their sponsors and the sponsors logos. From the logos you can click to find out more information on that company and a link to that company's website.

For example Eva Longoria:

http://www.whoisyoursponsor.com/people/eva-longoria.html

I would like to add links like this from Wikipedia to Who Is Your Sponsor? for additional information that browsers/users would like to know about the people that they are looking up.

Please let us know if this is within the guidelines for wikipedia to post links from your site to WhoIsYourSponsor.com.

Thank you.

Boojaya 06:28, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Probably won't float. Please see Wikipedia:External links#Advertising and conflicts of interest. WP:EL is the overall article and is usually cited as the reason not for including that type link. Ronbo76 07:04, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
What won't float? I've read through the external link and advertising conflicts and we should fit into the guidelines. imdb.com fits and has advertising on there site. Who Is Your Sponsor? does have companies, their logos and links to their sites but if you browse through the site we are not pushing one company over another. It is unbias information on people, the companies that support them and vise versa.

74.214.224.6 15:24, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

There is a difference. Almost any site you visit will have ads - that is the nature of the web. However, a site that is about celebrities with a database of people (celebrities, mucicians, althetes, etc.) with lists of the companies that they sponsor and vise versa becomes a direct commercial ad for the sponsoring companies and vice-versa. I have WP:EL on my Watchlist and follow the discussion there. From what I have seen in other editors reversing links with commercial ties, the citation is WP:EL. Thanks, Ronbo76 15:31, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
I want to understand Wiki policy on adding links, I'm just confused. IMBD.com has a database of celbrities and the movies and tv shows they are in. That to me would be as you said "becomes a direct commercial ad for the sponsoring companies and vice-versa" for the movies and product placement with in them. Is there a difference to what IMDB.com has and what Who Is Your Sponsor? has to offer. Could you please explain to me without adding links to pages I have to scroll through to find what you are referring to. I don't want to sound belligerent about this, but like I said I'm confused on what you allow and don't allow and why or pass it by the board for approval.

74.214.224.6 17:51, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Before I begin a discussion on IMDb, what is your relationship to this site you propose?
IMDb is a common site cited here on Wikipedia for actors, singers, and other media types. While not considered an authorative site on their accomplishments, dates, etc. IMDb fills a niche for a third party citeable site because much of their info can be confirmed via other sites. The hard and fast info about when a movie or show was on is usually correct but there are some exceptions or errors as there are on any site, Wikipedia included.
Some could say that the IMDb listings become a direct commercial link which would be a stretch IMHO. Sure, certain actors get placement because of product endorsements and other arrangements but if you go to see Top Gun most people don't care about Pepsi's direct placement in the movie because that is the norm these days. Product placement in movies and television shows is the equivalent of a ten second ad buried within the script.
I would suggest that you visit the talkpage of WP:EL as it is very telling. Commercial links are the bane and will get removed by almost every editor. If you read WP:NOT#DIR, in that paragraph you will read:

Wikipedia articles are not: . . . a resource for conducting business. (the paragraph's bolded for emphasis - not my doing).

Your site would be seen as a direct commercial link and as a resource for conducting business. I know trust is hard to come by these days, but I am giving you the straight scoop. As an editor, I see the two policies I cite in this answer as ones used to remove commercial links. Cheers, Ronbo76 18:16, 1 February 2007 (UTC)

Copyedit needed?[edit]

Who put the line in here about her relationship being "crazy hush hush" and whatever else? Removed for the sake of it being an encyclopedia article. Shawn 09:01, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

This is a very badly written article. "It was random because..." was this written by a thirteen-year-old girl or something? Zeke72791 03:22, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

(Moved comment as it should be added onto bottom) That might be a start. Please discuss here what sections you'd like to edit. Please remember however, that some of the people here are not 13 year old girls. Ronbo76 03:27, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Reviewed article after this morning's (March 21, 2007) deletion of a blogsite (whose link is contra WP:EL and WP:RS), and feel that the article needs a copyedit.
As an example, the early life has extraneous info about who one of her sisters was married/divorced from. In this same paragraph is a long-winded discussion about her lineage, coming from a dot net site, that uses a weasel word like noble. Subsequent paragraphs are just as bad if not worse. Ronbo76 16:36, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Not married yet![edit]

There's only a microsopic chance that it won't happen, but it's wrong to report that she was married on July 7, when it's only July 6. Marzolian 20:23, 6 July 2007 (UTC)

Last name[edit]

Unless I'm missing something, Eva is still using Longoria as her last name; not Parker, and not Parker-Longoria. The only attempted cite [1] seems to only be a blog entry saying they're married. Please fill me in if anyone can find something different. Kuru talk 01:46, 17 July 2007 (UTC)

it is possible that they're married but she is still using the same last name. a lot of women do this, famous or not.

Update to this, her name change in the credits of DH is good enough for me and seems to indicate her intent to use the name professionally. Kuru talk 02:43, 8 October 2007 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

The picture does not look like her can anyone find a better free image of her? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gaogier (talkcontribs) 02:32, 29 September 2007 (UTC)

Catholic Wedding[edit]

Did she anulled her first or she didn't married by the church? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 190.21.239.219 (talk) 19:57, 17 October 2007 (UTC)

Parker?[edit]

I put Parker under alias. Her common name is just Longoria. Would you search "Longoria-Parker" on a search engine?? Italian111 (talk) 20:19, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Restaurant Name Meaning[edit]

"Beso" is Spanish for "kiss", the noun. "To kiss", which is an infinitive, translates as "besar". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.180.46.177 (talk) 05:12, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Is Eva Longoria A Converso?[edit]

I am Interested in the Conversos. these people are descendents of Spanish Jews who were Forced to Convert to Christianity or leave Spain by king Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492, When Those Jews stayed and Became Conversos, they were closely watched by the eye of the Spanish Inquisition,to avoid Persecution and to retain there customs, many conversos who immigrated to Mexico settled in remote places like, what is now the Texas/ Mexican Border. Eva Longorias Parents were fronm the Texas Mexican Border so I wonder If anyone could find out for me if any of Eva Longoria's ancestors were the Conversos who settled in that area. La convivencia (talk) 20:45, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Nationality in lead[edit]

Over a period of time, I've seen numerous variations of American/Mexican/Mexican-born American and Mexican-American appear, disappear, and reappear, to the extent that it's getting extremely boring, and I think it's about time consensus should be reached for one description, and only one, and that should be maintained, once reached. I have no particular preference, so I regard myself as a neutral admin, except insofar as continued edit-warring, so I would have no problem in locking this article to prevent disruptive editing and POV-pushing. Over to anyone who cares. Rodhullandemu 00:23, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

I have a problem with her parents being listed as Mexican-American. If her family has lived in the same area since before the State of Texas was formed, then she should be considered Tajano-American at the very least. Either that or every decendant of Steven F. Austin's 300 families should also be considered Mexican-American. Did her ancestors fight for Texas independance?Tmpafford (talk) 22:20, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Endorsements[edit]

Eva Longoria Parker is no longer a spokesperson for Hanes, however her and husband Tony Parker endorse London Fog, and she recently appeared in commercials for Heineken Lite. --User: morganash85 13:06, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

I've found sources for London Fog and Heineken and update the endorsements section. The Hanes endorsement is well sourced; or at least there are several sources for it. Can you provide a cite states she has dropped endorsement or the contract has expired? Does she have an official site with this information or is there a press release? Many thanks. Kuru talk 23:47, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Personal Life[edit]

Eva does not own a home in Chino Hills. We are Eva Longoria Parker's publicity team. Is there any way that we can actually have the section about her owning a home in the Hollywood Dell area removed as well? At least out of professional courtesy, as it discusses how much she and Tony paid for the house. Thank you. Morganash85 (talk) 21:12, 25 November 2009 (UTC)morganash85

The item related to Chino Hills was unsourced and has been removed. The item related to Hollywood Dell was sourced to a blog, which is unacceptable and has been removed as well. I concur that it was fairly pointless information to have in the article anyways as it's not really all that notable. Thank you for making these requests on the talk page instead of making them yourself and disclosing your conflict of interest - that is greatly appreciated! Kuru talk 23:25, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Eva Longoria's divorce and last name[edit]

I think we should change the page's name into Eva Longoria (instead of Eva Longoria Parker), because on her facebook (http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/EvaLongoria her real facebook, she made a video to prove it) she no longer puts Parker... I know the divorce hasn't been finalised yet, but if she considers her as Longoria, I think we should delete Parker. And I think we also should change her box at "Spouse Tony Parker (2007-present)", and put (2007-2010), because even if it's not finalised, they are seperated, she says it. The celebrities' wikipedia pages are not meant to be really right according to the divorce law, but they are more meant to precise who she is dating. And we could think that she is not divorcing Tony Parker and tat they are still together. But I agree that she is still married to him officially, although it's not going to last for a long time. 5 desperate (talk) 21:28, 19 November 2010 (UTC)

As per the guidelines on Wikipedia:Naming conventions (people)#Nicknames, pen names, stage names, cognomens, the current article's name should be her current stage/professional name, NOT her current official legal name. It was primary changed from "Eva Longoria" to "Eva Longoria Parker" after she got married in the first place because she then also used it as her stage/professional name (e.g. in the opening credits of Desperate Housewives). If she reverts back to using just "Eva Longoria" as her professional name (again NOT legal name), the Desperate Housewives credits are also changed, and all the reliable, third party sources begin using it again as he professional name, then Wikipedia will eventually follow. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 05:19, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
Okay thanks :) Sorry if I made a few mistakes in english because I'm french. 5 desperate (talk) 21:24, 26 November 2010 (UTC)
  • UPDATE: I have moved it back now. All official sites (including this significant one that I was primarily watching) and most media organizations have reverted back to "Eva Longoria", so IMO we should follow that now. However, I cannot yet update you on the DH opening credits. The last original episode, "Sorry Grateful", aired weeks ago on November 14 before the divorce was announced. And the next episode Pleasant Little Kingdom is scheduled to air on December 5, more than a week after this writing – that is too long to wait IMO. But I assume it will be changed by then, based on the significant official link I mentioned. Cheers. Zzyzx11 (talk) 21:12, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Relationship section[edit]

Does this need to be so long, citing all the sordid details of her engagement/marriage/divorce? Should not the focus of the article be on her acting career for which she is famous? I think it needs pruning. --BwB (talk) 12:38, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Age[edit]

The footnote citing her date of birth refers to a newspaper article that's not about Eva Longoria. I seem to remember she was older than 36, too... Does anyone know when she was actually born? 165.124.217.141 (talk) 02:22, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

The article is a reliable source very specifically about the actress and her former spouse; I'm not sure what you're confused about. If you have another WP:RS, please feel free to add it. Kuru (talk) 19:30, 8 May 2011 (UTC)

Unnecessary details?[edit]

Just because a genealogical study was conducted of her on a TV show does not merit such detailed inclusion in a Wikipedia article, in my view. It just seems like a little much. The fact that her family emigrated to America in the 1600s is interesting, as is her ancestral link to Yo-Yo Ma, but everything else could afford to be washed.

Also a bit extraneous: the specific talking points of her speech to the Democratic National Convention. The fact that she spoke is itself notable, as is her claim that none of the platforms she's stood on in her life were as important, but the particular political positions do not seem warranted at all. --SchutteGod 70.181.184.7 (talk) 17:43, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
