Is Eva Longoria dating Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa following her split from Mark Sanchez?
Although the rumor mill was buzzing about the possible new relationship, the former Desperate Housewives star’s rep is denying it.
Longoria told her pal, Extra’s Mario Lopez, that she’s not dating the political figure.
But the actress has a theory as to why she was linked to Mayor Villaraigoa: her new political platform.
Longoria spoke at the Democratic National Convention this year, and she was very active with President Obama’s re-election campaign. She called her speech at the DNC "the most important speech" she has ever made.
She also told E! at the time, “I'm so honored that they asked me to do it. It's a privilege to be able to speak to the American public in this forum."
Longoria split from New York Jets quarterback, Sanchez, in October after only three months of dating. A source said at the time, “It really was about scheduling more than anything else. They will remain close friends.”
