Longoria assured us that there is no engagement news to share. “It’s just a Martin Katz ring that I’ve had forever.”

She added, “I can see where people thought this was true. First, on New Year’s, I wore white because my black dress didn’t fit. Then because of a flight, I wore the ring on this finger because I had to move it from being so swollen from the flight. Then we dedicated a song to our friends, who are getting engaged, and the song was called “Will You Marry Me?’ I can totally see where people think [an engagement] happened.”

As for her project with ESPN, Longoria is executive producing a series of short films called “Versus.” She explained, “It's when the world of sports bumps up against something bigger than the sport.”
