Arguello was cast on the reality TV dating show “Ready for Love,” which was produced by Longoria. When the show aired in the spring, there was romance buzz around the two, but Longoria says they were just friends at the time.
Longoria told People.com, "I think that's why our relationship is so special -- we truly started as friends. I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn't see!"
A source told People.com, “Eva and Ernesto are a perfect match. They both speak Spanish, have the same religion and the same cultural background."
Longoria just returned from a trip to Nicaragua where she was introduced to Ernesto’s family.
