Eva Longoria is anything but desperate. In fact, her life is pretty ideal these days.
“Everything in my life is perfect,” she said Friday in Las Vegas at her 36th birthday bash at Eve Nightclub.
Joined by her new beau Eduardo Cruz and a large posse of friends, including Mario Lopez and David Spade, Longoria capped off a week of birthday celebrations in a white sparkling cocktail dress with dinner at her Beso restaurant, followed by a night of dancing at Eve, which was decked out in balloons for the celebration. Sipping Nuvo sparkling liqueur, the Desperate Housewives star cuddled up to Cruz in the VIP section, sneaking a few kisses throughout the night.
Later, she stood atop a catwalk in view of the club to listen to singer Tino Coury perform as a large birthday cake was delivered. The birthday, she said earlier in the night, begins a “new year” for her while acknowledging the “big changes” in her life.
“I embrace everything that’s happening,” she told PEOPLE. “I hold dearly every experience that I have in my life. I regret nothing, so, you know, [I’m] moving on.”
