Eva Longoria Parker and Tony ParkerEva Longoria Parker has said that she thinks her long-distance relationship with husband Tony Parker helps their relationship instead of hinders it.

The couple divide their time between Los Angeles, where Eva films Desperate Housewives, and Texas, where Tony plays for the San Antonio Spurs basketball team.

She explained recently: “[When we’re together] it is a honeymoon, because we only have three days together and we hardly fight because we know we don’t have much time.

“All the little things that couples argue about - we let them slide.”

The couple married in Paris in July 2007.
