Tony Parker divorced television star Eva Longoria five years ago, but the glittery marriage still seems to follow him wherever he goes. Here's what Parker recently had to say in a French television interview on Conversation Secrete:

Well, none of this is all that surprising. Divorces are typically difficult situations, even more so when placed beneath a microscope. 

But the San Antonio Spurs point guard recently remarried a French journalist and has a son. He's also back to his normally efficient self, after slumping last year through several nagging injuries. 

It's safe to assume that he's moved on, and everyone else should to.

But, Parker said during the interview that walking away from Longoria was difficult. “It’s not easy to leave a relationship, because when I get involved in something, I want to do well,” he said in the conversation translated by ContactMusic.com. In 2013, People.com reported Longoria told TV-famous Dr. Oz she didn’t know she was depressed after the divorce, adding that she didn’t eat much. “My diet was coffee,” she said in the interview.
