Eva Longoria splits with Miami reality hunk


We won’t see Eva Longoria planning her wedding at any local hot spots. She just couldn’t make it stick with Miami “entrepreneur ” Ernesto Arguello.

According to widespread media reports, the L.A. based actress split from her boyfriend of four months due to long distance issues. Or maybe she got a look at his bank account. According to Gossip Extra, he’s basically broke and laden with debt.

The two met while the ex Mrs . Tony Parker was producing her disastrous dating show Ready for Love and Arguello was a contestant. The show was canceled before we got a chance to see his pick. But maybe he has a shot with that woman, whoever she is.

Andy Cohen recently blabbed that Jillian Michaels was basically the guest from hell when she stopped by his Bravo chat show, Watch What Happens Live.

Fins up

On Wednesday, while singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett was on a day off in between his Jones Beach concerts in the New York area, the avid fisherman caught a whopper of a fish: a 350-pound, 74-inch long tuna in the waters off Nantucket, Mass.

Land shark? Not quite, but almost as big. “Look what ran into my line this morning!” Buffett, 66, said of his fish tale as he sent off a photograph with his impressive catch, caught by a camera mounted on his boat.

Now we know what the menu holds for the immediate future at one of his restaurants: Tunaburger in Paradise, tuna tartare, tuna steak, tuna casserole, tuna sushi rolls.

Buffett just released a new studio album, Songs from St. Somewhere, which features songs cut in Miami, Key West and other locales while dozens gathered Thursday on Hollywood beach for the groundbreaking of Buffett’s 349-room, island-themed Margaritaville Beach Resort.
