Eva Longoria Talks 'Heartbreaking' Divorce From Tony Parker (VIDEO)

Eva Longoria opened up about her divorce from NBA star Tony Parker for the first time Thursday night, breaking into tears when CNN’s Piers Morgan quizzed her about their public split.

“It was heartbreaking,” she said. “I think it was disappointing because I had such an identity in being Mrs. Parker and being a wife, and when that’s taken away from you, you go ‘Who am I?’”

Longoria filed for divorce in November 2010, amidst reports that her ex-husband was caught “sexting” with a former teammate’s wife. Since their split was finalized in January 2011, Longoria has been spotted canoodling with her new boyfriend, Penelope Cruz's 25-year-old brother Eduardo Cruz.

Despite the “humiliating” nature of their split, Longoria refused to talk ill of her former hubby.

“You know, he’s not a bad person, he just wanted something else. I don’t hate him for it, I really don’t,” she said. “I would never speak publicly about what happened or why we got divorced because I love him and we still talk, we are still in each other’s lives.”

Since their divorce, Longoria and Parker have been seen together several times, an act that “takes grace,” said Longoria.
