Eva Longoria confirms that she and Mark Sanchez are dating (video)

Since SoB apparently is your go-to source for all the news surrounding the love lives of high-profile athletes today, we might as well pass along the news that actress Eva Longoria officially confirmed that she and New York Jets quarterback are indeed dating.

The rumors and speculation have been rampant that the two are an item and romantically involved since they were photographed dining together at a golf resort in New Jersey earlier this month, but Longoria let the secret out after she was pressed by pal AC Slater Mario Lopez during an appearance on Extra!, the Desperate Housewives actress finally gave in and said, “Mark and I are, you know, fine. We’re happy just dating.” Squee! How romantical!

If you just have to see the video of Longoria calling Lopez an a-hole before finally fessing up, video follows.

Man, things are going pretty well for Sanchez. If there wasn’t enough pressure on him already, he was forced to deal with the annoyance of the Jets trading for Tim Tebow in March and the constant conjecture and associated controversy that the new guy was there to supplant him as the starting quarterback. And with all that weighing on him, Sanchez went out and gave a good accounting of himself on Sunday, perhaps proving all doubters wrong — at least for one game — with a stellar performance, throwing for 266 yards and 3 TDs in a convincing victory over the Buffalo Bills. Yeah, life is prettay prettay prettay good for Mark Sanchez right about now.
