Longoria gives Simpson tips to being a sportspersons ladyloveJanuary 14th, 2008 - 5:24 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Jan 14 (ANI): American actress Eva Longoria has been advising American singer Jessica Simpson on how to stay cool when fans blame her for her footballer beaus poor performance on the field.
Longoria, who is married to basketball player Tony Parker, is helping Simpson cope with being called a jinx on boyfriend Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys.
“When I first started dating Tony (Parker), I got the same flack, and this was so many years ago that people don’t remember,” Longoria told People mag on Saturday Jan 12.
“If he had a bad game, it was my fault, if he got injured, it was my fault, if he had a good game, it wasn’t because of me,” she added.
Longoria’s advice to her fellow Texan is to just go with the flow and everything will be all right.
“You have to weather that for a while, and once people get over it, they kind of get used to you,” she stated.
Simpson, 27, got ribbed by Cowboy fans when Romo, 27, had a bad late-season game while she was in the stadium, but Longoria says Simpson can learn from the happily married Desperate Housewives star.
“Believe me, they are not thinking of us when they are on the field, particularly Tony Romo, who has 10 linemen coming at him,” said Longoria, 32, while promoting her upcoming film Over Her Dead Body.
“Do you think that he is really thinking about Jessica the moment that he is about to get sacked?” she asked.
However, Simpson does not want to take any chances, and after Romos bad game, she has stayed away from the stands and is not expected to attend Sunday’s Dallas-New York Giants playoff match. (ANI)
