Actress Eva Longoria has something in common with her Desperate Housewives' character GABRIELLE - Gabrielle is having an affair with a gardener, while her ex-boyfriend plays one on The OC.

Actor Nicholas Gonzalez admits he once had a relationship with Longoria - who's currently dating 'N SYNC star JC CHASEZ - but he's refusing to tune in and watch her antics on her new, hugely successful US show.

Gonzalez says, "I know what it's like (to be) with her, so I don't have to watch her on TV.

"I'm single now. I'm single and ready to plant some crops."
