Longoria Learns French for Fiancé
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria is taking French classes in
order to learn how to speak fiancée Tony Parker's native language.
The 31-year-old star decided to take intensive lessons this summer (06)
while she was on a break from filming her hit TV series.
She tells American publication People, "He's terrible. He always
wants to speak English. I try to remind him, but he always forgets and
says it's easier and faster to speak English, but I want to understand.
"I couldn't speak French before Tony. All I knew how to say was
'My name is Eva'. I went to a Berlitz French school this summer, doing
about five hours a day."
Longoria first met professional basketball player Parker in the San
Antonio Spurs locker room just over two years ago and they became engaged
last month (NOV06).
Communication should be easier in the future - Longoria now describes
her French language skills as "great".
