Eva Longoria Says Depression Following Divorce From Tony Parker Seriously Impacted Her Physical Health
Breakups can be rough on anyone. Though many of us would like to put on a brave face and pretend that everything is okay, deep down inside we are all humans with feelings that can be hurt and hearts that can break. Celebrities are no different. Back in 2011 when Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria split from her NBA-playing ex-hubby Tony Parker due to his infidelity, the 38-year-old beauty resisted the urge to have a public meltdown, stood firmly and expressed that although she was hurt by Parker’s actions, she wouldn’t allow it to define her or impact her self-esteem.
“I just think, ‘Wow, okay, that’s the life you want to live.’ It wasn’t about who he chose. I mean, I had moments [where I wondered], ‘Am I not Hot enough? Am I not pretty enough? Am I not smart enough?’ But in so many of those questions, I immediately stopped and said, ‘No, don’t start doing that.’ Because you can get stuck in that cycle and you can carry on to other things,” she said during a 2012 Lifetime special.
Although she didn’t allow the divorce to cause her to question her worth, she recently revealed during an appearance on the Dr. Oz Show that it did, however, prompt her to sink into a serious period of depression.
“People kept saying, ‘You look amazing. Divorce agrees with you. And I was like, ‘I don’t feel good. I have no energy.’ I didn’t know I was depressed. I mean, I knew it was a sad moment in my life, but I wouldn’t categorize myself as depressed.”
“[Months after our breakup was] the time I got the most compliments, because I was so skinny. I was not eating. I was depressed. I was sad. My diet was coffee.”
After making a trip to the doctor, Longoria says she learned that she’d been suffering from a little more than just a broken heart.
“I was just depleted of every vitamin. He said it’s as if somebody took a straw and sucked everything out of your body. ‘You don’t have any iron and your liver’s overacting.’ It was like all these things were physically wrong with my body, so I had to saturate with vitamins and kind of get back on this track.”
Thankfully she was able to bounce back. All in all, Eva says she learned that “you don’t have anything if you don’t have your health.”
