Eva Longoria sat down with Piers Morgan on CNN, and after being asked about her divorce from Tony Parker, the Desperate Housewives star fought back tears.

Speaking on the subject of her divorce for the first time, she tells Piers:

    "It was heartbreaking. So many people want me to hate him and destroy him, but I don't want to. I want him to be happy. He's not a bad person. I do believe in forgiving and forgetting. There was a reason we were together. I just want to hold on to the good times."

Longoria, 36, and Parker had been married for four years before splitting amid allegations that the basketball star was unfaithful.

Eva adds, "I had such an identity in being Mrs Parker and when that's taken away from you it's hard."
