The DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star claims her basketball lover can't get enough of reminding his team mates that Longoria, who plays sassy Gabrielle Solis in the US drama, is all his.
She says, "He gets to brag. I don't because then I'm an egomaniac, but believe me, he hoots his horn.
"He's an athlete in a male-dominated community, so they talk about it all the time."
However Longoria, who was propelled to sex-symbol status as soon as the series aired, knows fame can be short-lived.
She adds, "It can go away tomorrow, so it's all about enjoying the ride."
