[EXCERPT] The 24 million or so Latino Americans eligible to vote this fall represent the sleeping giant in American politics, and Eva Longoria and Wilmer Valderrama, who’ve been friends since they were penniless actors, are doing their best to awaken it and make it roar.
“About 50,000 Latinos turn 18 each month,” says Valderrama, a regular on last season’s NBC series Awake. “We’re trying to make them understand that in numbers, they’re going to get something done. They don’t realize government is almost begging for this feedback.”
Valderrama’s group — which is holding daily national registration events until Election Day — is not interested in whom people vote for, only that they do it.
“I’m on Obama’s re-election committee,” says Longoria, “so I’m not bipartisan — look, I’m wearing my Democratic necklace somebody sent me, with gold and diamonds. [It is Alex Woo’s Little Activist Donkey Pendant in Yellow Gold and Diamonds.] My job is, after Wilmer registers them to vote, to make them vote Democratic.”

DESPERATE Housewives star Eva Longoria is keeping her boyfriend close to her chest with her new diamond necklace.
Basketball hunk Tony Parker, who wears No. 9 for the San Antonio Spurs, bought the £230 Alex Woo necklace with a pendant in the shape of a nine as a present for the Wisteria Lane beauty.
Eva, who is starring in action thriller The Sentinel with Michael Douglas, has been dating Tony for a year.
She said: “I live in San Antonio, Texas, and work in LA so I am home every weekend. Tony is the big celebrity in San Antonio and I never get bothered.
“Tony hates visiting me on set. He thinks it’s the most boring thing in the world.”
Eva isn’t the only star who thinks Woo’s numbers are magic. Courtney Cox has a Woo necklace with a 1 and 3 on it, representing her daughter Coco’s birthday, Drew Barrymore has a 7 and a gold spade pendant for luck and Julia Roberts has a gold 2 charm representing her twins Phinnaeus and Hazel.
In the Celebrity section of Life & Style this week, Eva’s No. 9 obsession is revealed. After starting her No. 9 obsession with Alex Woo’s Little Numbers pendant, she started to pick up everything with her boyfriend Tony Parker’s number on it.
“Let’s hope Eva Longoria’s beau, San Antonion Spurs star Tony Parker, doesn’t get traded to another team and have to give up his number — Eva has already plastered his No. 9 on everything from her jeans to her Sidekick and her jewels. Could a trip to the tatoo parlor be next?”
Previously in Life & Style, Eva’s No, 9 necklace was also shown with Tony’s gold 2005 NBA championship ring…
“Desperate House” Makeover
The sizzling star talks about boyfriend Tony Parker, family and a dream come true. Growing up on her parents’ simple Texas ranch, Desperate Housewives’ Eva Longoria says her family had a whole lot of love, but not much money. Now, Eva has bought her parents the house they never had and enlists design expert Nate Berkus to transform it to the home of their dreams. From terra cotta tiles to Wild West granite, Nate helped Eva blend bright colors and traditional handicrafts to reflect the Longorias’ cultural heritage. Eva’s parents love it! “I feel like I’m in Mexico,” says Eva’s mom. “It’s great…it’s wonderful!”
When Nate and Eva were with her parents discussing decorating ideas for their new space and seen during the interviews, Eva was wearing Alex Woo’s No. 9 necklace from the Little Numbers Collection – a favorite that sparked her number 9 fashion craze.
In the Style News section of Life & Style this week, Eva shows a little love. Not only does Eva Longoria sport a lucky No. 9 pendant, the jersey number of her boyfriend, San Antonio Spurs b-baller Tony Parker, she also wears Tony’s custom-made 14k-white-and-yellow-gold 2005 NBA championship ring — featuring 2.55 carats of diamonds — on a chain. Aww — just like high school. How cute!
Eva’s No. 9 necklace is 14k gold from Alex Woo.

Eva’s numbers game
Jewelry with a hidden meaning
Does Eva Longoria wear her trendy No. 9 necklace to keep the fashion police away, or does it hold a sentimental attachment? When asked in Melbourne on Derby Day about her NBA boyfriend, Tony Parker — the San Antonio Spurs No. 9 player — the Desperate Housewives star said, “I have him here with me on my heart, on my necklace, so he’s not too far.” And it’s not only her TV character, Gabrielle Solis, who has a taste for younger men: Eva, 30, calls the 23-year-old basketballer her “boy toy.”
On November 19th, “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria hosted NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” with musical guest Korn. In a total of nine segments (coincidence?) she made a strong comedic debut on what is the longest-running entertainment comedy show in America. As a mohican-haired dance music star “Ms. Drama Martinez” in Keenan’s “MTV4 Deep House Dish,” she turned a simple sketch into some big laughs. Perhaps the most memorable sketch however was when she poked fun at the infamous Vanity Fair Desperate Housewives cover shoot spat by playing a scene-stealing Teri Hatcher.
Named one of “People’s 50 Most Beautiful People” and the Hottest Woman in the World on Maxim’s 2005 annual “Hot 100 List” Eva Longoria will soon be seen in the feature films “Harsh Times” with Christian Bale and “The Sentinel” with Michael Douglas. In this Saturday Night Live photo, Eva Longoria is wearing Alex Woo’s No. 9 necklace from the Little Numbers Collection that started her No. 9 craze for boyfriend San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker.
