Just days before Eva Longoria
's divorce from San Antonio Spurs player Tony Parker became final in January
, she spoke frankly with Allure magazine
about just how difficult the split is on her.
"Every time I talk about it, I want to cry. It's been hard. Very hard," Longoria, 36, says in the April cover story
. "I'm just trying to get through it as gracefully as possible without any drama."
As she begins to move on, Longoria has found a new beau (Eduardo Cruz
) and says she leans on her Desperate Housewives
costars. "Some people collect plates and stamps and coins. I collect people, I collect amazing, smart, interesting women," she says.
Longoria, who will star alongside Christian Slater in summer comedy Without Men
, concludes, "I'm in a transition stage, settling into a new routine – and I welcome it."
