Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz have reportedly reunited amid speculation that longtime friend, Kim Kardashian, recently began pursuing him.
Longoria, who split from Cruz just a few weeks before her 37th birthday in March, was spotted sharing what onlookers described as a romantic meal with the 26-year-old at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.
"Over the course of the evening, Eva and Eduardo were holding hands and whispering to each other, and things definitely appear to be back on between them," a source told X17 Online.
Speculation that the couple may have rekindled their romance comes just days after Kardashian publicly denied reports that she began exchanging flirtatious text messages with Cruz shortly after his split from Longoria.
"I'm used to rumors & almost never address them. Buuuut…. It's not ok when magazines like InTouch involve my close friends in their made up stories. They were told by multiple people that their current cover isn't true, but they decided to go ahead. & run it anyway. So there you have it," Kardashian posted on her blog.
Kardashian, who is still finalizing her divorce from NBA star Kris Humphries, was referring to reports that she and Cruz had recently planned a romantic getaway to Mexico.
The 31-year-old reality TV personality raised eyebrows in March when she did not attend Longoria's 37th birthday party, which some critics attributed to her alleged fling with Cruz.
Longoria, who was first introduced to Cruz by his sister actress Penelope Cruz, has surprised fans after reuniting with Cruz less than one month after their split, as it was previously reported that the "Desperate Housewives" actress was moving on and focused "on work," according to Us Magazine.
"It was a mutual decision. They are staying friends. [Eva's] focusing on work and the end of Desperate Housewives," a source previously told Us Magazine about Longoria's sudden split from Cruz.
