The actress, who turned 36 on Tuesday, discusses the divorce process from Parker in the upcoming April issue of “Allure” magazine. In recent weeks she has been linked to actress Pénelope Cruz's younger brother Eduardo.
Longoria filed for divorce from Parker last November, citing irreconcilable differences. The two were married in July 2007.
In the publication, Longoria states how talking about the breakup from the San Antonio Spurs player makes her "want to cry" but she's trying to make the transition "as gracefully as possible" and "without any drama."
She added how she now has time to "find new patterns" in life because she no longer spends her spare time watching Parker play.
Longoria also credits the women in her life with getting her through difficult times. She says she "collects people" in her life, particularly "amazing, smart, interesting women."
The April issue of Allure magazine goes on sale nationwide March 22.
