'Desperate' Romance Buzz for Eva and Teri
May 11, 2005

The Tinseltown rumors never stop, and neither do we. When a story sets tounges wagging, we're on top of it to get at the truth. Cases in point: today's Rumor Control...

She's pregnant and carrying on an affair with a gardener. He's saving the world from a nuclear attack -- at least on TV. But now "Desperate Housewife" Eva Longoria and "24" terrorist tamer Keifer Sutherland were spotted out to dinner together in Toronto and then at a chic hotel. So did they have a secret rendezvous?

Yes -- but it's not what you think. As Eva told us, "I play a secret service agent with Keifer Sutherland and he trains me. Actually, he's my mentor."

That's right: the two are co-starring in a new movie together. Their people say it's strictly business between them.

But can the same be said for Eva's "Desperate" co-star Teri Hatcher? She's at the center of a romance rumor of her own, one that has her going one-on-one with former NBA star John Salley. Is it true?

No -- a report by The New York Post's Page Six says the twosome shared a booth, a dance and a kiss at Los Angeles nightspot Chi, but “Extra” confirmed that this rumor is definitely not true.

Meanwhile, Jessica Simpson is super-sexy in her Daisy Dukes, but what about the rumors that the buxom blonde made a booty call for a butt double on the set of "The Dukes of Hazzard"?

No -- in fact Jessica told us a lot of hard work is going into those Daisy Dukes. "I work out six days a week," she said. "That's a lot, but I do about two-and-a-half hours a day."

And back on the romance front comes word that Hollywood's top gun, Tom Cruise, is ready to settle down. Is it true?

Yes -- Tom tells Reader's Digest he wants to get married and have more kids. So, how does "Katie Cruise" sound?
