Longoria has not been hiding out despite her hurt over the breakup of her marriage, but has made it a point to socialize. She has been seen out with 25-year-old Eduardo Cruz, who is the younger brother of actress Penelope Cruz, though the pair say they are just friends. Another rumor that recently sprang up was that Longoria had the tattoo of her wedding date (07/07/07) removed from her wrist, but Longoria took to Twitter to deny that rumor.
