On the Hot Seat

Oprah Winfrey has been scoring interviews with the biggest stars from the sports and entertainment world for years. Michael Jordan has been a recent guest, as have LeBron James, Kevin Garnett and Caron Butler.

But perhaps no appearance by an NBA hoopster in recent times has drummed up more buzz than yesterday’s visit by San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker and his “Desperate Housewives” girlfriend Eva Longoria. The French-born Parker met the sultry actress in the Spurs’ locker room following a game over a year ago, and the two have been one of Hollywood’s hottest couples since.

As for his appearance on Oprah, Parker views it as dishing an assist to his main squeeze. “I'm doing this more for Eva. I know it's a big thing for her, and she really loves Oprah.”
