Initially, I figured the slight might be related to all those Eva questions DB asked of him during our Answer Man interview or the following fallout with Carlos Pena over Evan's comments on who 'seems' Dominican and who doesn't.
But then I came to my senses and realized the main reason why I'll be watching Quantum of Solace on Friday night instead of playing Guitar Hero or Rock Band with the new AL Rookie of the Year while dressed in threads from his preferred clothing line.
And that's because I am not even close to being one of the hottest women in the LBC, which I assume is a prerequisite for this shindig.
A pert waitress, Paloma Soto-Castillo, that Longoria has known since their elementary school days in Downey — he wound up going to St. John Bosco High and she to Warren High — tells Longoria she's going to bring some of her girlfriends.
"Good," he replies with a smile.
Because there's no way you can do an Internet search on a friend of Evan Longoria's named "Paloma Soto-Castillo" and not walk away with something nice, I did just that.
And it turns out Ms. Soto-Castillo was tragically one of the first castaways booted from the latest season of Survivor. (Yes, that show is still on the air and in its 129th season.)
However, before you start thinking that Evan and Paloma are the new Cole and Heidi, MLB's Master of the Universe told the LBPT he's still single.
Luckily for us mouthbreathing creeps at home, Paloma says the same thing.
A big BLS head nod to Rays Index for the redirect.
