Is this the woman who made Eva Longoria desperate for a divorce lawyer? Sources tell Us Weekly that Erin Barry, the wife of Tony Parker‘s former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry, is allegedly the woman who exchanged hundreds of texts with Parker. Supposedly, after discovering the texts on her husband’s phone, Longoria announced yesterday that she is splitting from her husband. The Barrys are currently going through a divorce, too.Erin and Brent Barry are high school sweethearts, according to a 2004 interview she gave to SpursTalk.com. They both grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended Catholic boys’ and girls’ schools across the street from each other. Erin gushed to SpursTalk.com that the couple fell in love instantly after going on a date to see “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” when she was 16.
The Parkers and Barrys were apparently friends with each other. (Heh, not anymore.) Sources are telling E! News and other outlets that Erin Barry and Tony Parker never got physical with each other and that the hundreds of texts exchanged were “just texting.”
For what it’s worth, in 2008, the website WAGrankings, which ranks the wives and girlfriends of professional sports players, said of the rumored homewrecker: “Erin Barry has reached the sort of legendary status among San Antonio Spurs fans that few sports wives ever attain.” I’ll say!
