Erin Barry, who was formerly married to San Antonio Spurs player Brent Barry was last week named as the other woman in Tony Parker's life.
According to the Sunday Independent, Erin has spent a considerable amount of time in Ireland in the past two years and has enjoyed working relationships with a number of actors from the Emmy winning series "The Tudors". She has also starred in one episode.
Her Irish acting friends have expressed their shock at what has unfolded.
“She is really lovely girl and devoted mother. I'm shocked at this because all she talked about was her husband and her sons while she was here. She us your typical all-American girl, she is always up for a good laugh and went on nights out in Dublin with some of the gang from the series,” the source told the Independent.
“She is strikingly beautiful and turns heads where ever she goes. She had a lot of admirers during her time in Ireland but I never though she would be involved in something like this.
“We became close friends while she was here and I've heard she is in pieces over this. I feel really sorry for her that it is blown up like this. It must be a nightmare. I know she's in the middle of a divorce now from her husband Brent so it must be awful on top of everything else,” they added.
The actress can be seen in the first episode of the last season of The Tudors.
Last weeks rumors emerged that Longoria had discovered messages on her husbands phone from Barry
After three years of marriage, Eva Longoria filed for divorce last Wednesday citing irreconcilable differences.
A statement on their Twitter accounts said "We love each other deeply and pray for each other's happiness.”
