Uh-oh. Not the best way to start off a new year, bb.
Sources are reporting that Eva Longoria is facing a $4 million dollar lawsuit from a guy who claims he was scammed into investing in her restaurant, Beso.
The investor claims that Eva lent $1 million dollars to the company behind her restaurant with an agreement she'd get paid back in full with interest - a lot of interest. For her $1 million loan, she ended up getting back $4.6 million over 2 years. The investor claims that this arrangement is against California state laws and has cut into their percent of the company.
Naturally, its the last part he's particularly pissed about. Hence the lawsuit he filed today demanding over $4 million in damages.
Eva Longoria Parker is working on a new reality show that will focus on her Hollywood restaurant Beso.
The actress says she "loves producing" and she has "so many beautiful stories in the Latin community that I think should be told, and I really would like to focus on trying to bring some of those stories to light now."
The reality show will center around the ins-and-outs of her restaurant business, adding, "It will follow the employees that work at my restaurant. I'm not in it that much. I'm married and old now."
This sounds like kind of a weak premise for a reality show.
We previously mentioned that Eva Longoria was being sued by her business partners at her Vegas restaurant Beso.
In response, her reps released the following statement:
"Eva Longoria Parker is a well-respected business woman who is nothing short of honorable in all endeavors that she embarks upon, whether they are political, philanthropic, or in any professional business capacity. All allegations made by the Nachums against Longoria Parker, her business partner, and restaurant are absolutely false, untrue, and without merit. Longoria Parker plans to counter sue the couple in the court of law in order to protect the integrity of the restaurant, its brand, and the welfare and well-being of her employees, as well as her own reputation."
