The Wildcat is out of the bag.  Eva Longoria, the tiny "Desperate Housewives" star has confirmed Thursday — what has been the worst kept secret in New York since Michael Strahan replaced Regis Philbin — that she and Mark Sanchez are an item.

It's official.  Now everyone go "awwww."

After being spotted grocery shopping near his Bedminster, N.J. home and hiding behind a blond wig while dining out in Manhattan, Longoria broke the news to "Extra" host Mario Lopez.

"Mark and I are, you know, fine.  We're happy — just dating," she giggled.

Everyone knows the 37-year old actress has a thing for athletes —he just split with NBA star Tony Parker — but claims she's "a big fan of the Jets because they have the best center in the NFL, Nick Mangold."

Yeah right ... a center.  You know Sanchez told her to say that.


Longoria was coy about breaking the the news — and even called Lopez an "a--hole" for holding up a New York Post story about the couple with the headline,"Private Affair" on it.   But she finally spilled the beans in front of cheering fans.


Now that Longoria has the Jets quarterback on her fantasy team, she can expect a lot more front page headlines.
First Sanchez gets the starting job, now he gets the girl.  Tim Tebow, eat your heart out.
