Eva Longoria talks divorce and depression on 'Dr. Oz'

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Eva Longoria is opening up about her 2010 divorce from NBA player Tony Parker. The former Desperate Housewives actress admits that during the time of her divorce, she experienced a severe amount of depression.

According to Yahoo!, Longoria sat down with Dr. Oz and she admitted that she lost a significant amount of weight as her marriage began to crumble.

“That's probably the time I got the most compliments because I was so skinny,” she explained. “I was not eating. I was depressed. I was sad. My diet was coffee. So people kept saying, 'You look amazing. Divorce agrees with you.' And I was like, 'I don't feel good. I have no energy.'"

Longoria and Parker's divorce played out in the public eye after it was revealed that Parker was sending numerous explicit text messages to a players wife. At the time the Latin beauty admitted to Amanda de Cadenet, “It wasn't about who he chose. I mean, I had moments of, 'Am I not sexy enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?'"

Now, during her interview on Dr. Oz, which aired Friday, Longoria admits, she "didn't know I was depressed."

"I mean, I knew it was a sad moment in my life, but I wouldn't categorize myself as depressed. I'm not that. I'm an optimist about life, like, 'Didn't work? Moving on. I'm fine.' And then I went to the doctor to get some blood tests because I said something's wrong."

Following her divorce, Longoria was linked to Eduardo Cruz and recently denied rumors she was dating a bachelor from Ready for Love, her recently cancelled reality show.
