Eva Longoria may be a Hollywood star, but she isn’t above reality television romance. The Desperate Housewives star confirms that she is officially dating Ernesto Argüello- one of the contestants from Ready to Love. The two met during the the short-lived series which Longoria produced.
Argüello, a Miami entrepeneur, was one of three bachelors chosen to appear on the show and work with matchmakers to find him a potential girlfriend. Ernesto ended up choosing former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey before ending their short union late last year.
Longoria initially denied their relationship after seeing tabloid reports online.
“WHAT?! AGAIN? Sorry guys, still not dating @ernestoarguello Who are these ‘sources’??,” the 38 year old previously tweeted.
Today, the two are spending a lot of time together in Los Angeles where Eva is based. The reality star even attended her May 22 graduation from Cal State Northridge where she earned a Master’s in Chicano Studies.
“I think that’s why our relationship is so special—we truly started as friends. I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn’t see!,” she gushes to People.
