Eva Longoria's plan to celebrate New Year's Eve in Marbella, in detail
For yet another year, actress Eva Longoria has turned Marbella upside down, announcing that she will spend the end of the year in the city on the Costa del Sol, together with her husband, the Mexican businessman José Antonio Bastón, and their son Santi. For this occasion, the actress has chosen to celebrate the entrance of the new year in the restaurant that her friend, the former Franco-Algerian soccer player Zazou Belounis, named Nota Blu, previously known as La Meridiana, has just inaugurated, a place that marked the history of the jet set in that town. As Vanitatis has learned from local sources, the Malaga businesswoman María Bravo, a close friend of the interpreter, has reserved a table for the night of December 31 in order to enter 2023 in the most lively way possible. The environment will be friendly. The protagonist of 'Desperate Housewives' will be accompanied at the table, in addition to her husband and son, the godfather of her little Santi, the actor Amaury Nolasco, the Spanish boxer of Georgian origin Ilia Topuria, the woman mentioned at the beginning of the paragraph and some close friends.
The exclusivity of the place
The Nota Blu restaurant, where Eva will celebrate New Year's Eve, is one of the most emblematic and historical places in the city. When it was still the Meridiana back in 2012, Michelle Obama closed an area of the premises to dine with her daughter Sasha hers. And this was the motto of the then owner, Paolo Girelli: “A table in the Meridiana is one of the most desired pieces of furniture in Marbella. Anyone who presumes to be someone and comes to this city will have dined here. This location became an emblem of the Costa del Sol for decades, attracting all members of the beautiful people from around the world: from Sean Connery to Elizabeth Taylor, the Sultan of Brunei or Princess Diana of Wales herself, who dressed up in a brown wig to blend in with her hostess Lady Annabel Goldsmith, when she came to be cured of "lovesickness" by her Pakistani doctor.
His relationship with Marbella
It is not the first time that Eva appears in this redoubt of sumptuousness in Marbella, a few months ago she sat in the same place to celebrate the birthday of her friend María Bravo. Next to her is always Pepe, her husband, president of Televisa and one of the richest men in Mexico. Precisely, in an interview with Vanitatis, the Texan publicly expressed the love she feels for her current partner. “This man has barbaric energy and he always brings me luck. I will never leave his side. With Pepe I am immensely happy and there are things that cannot be hidden. Pepe is the best thing that has happened to me and together we share projects, lives, a common path ”, she confessed.
The actress is already a regular in the city. Eva Longoria arrived in Marbella for the first time at the hands of the Malaga actor Antonio Banderas and in the company of her then husband, the basketball player Tony Parker. The photos of the Banderas Griffith couple next to the Parker Longoria did not foretell that, just after a few years, nothing would remain of them, nor of the couples. Her foundations also split up and she captained Global Gift, following her breakup with Starlite. In addition, the foundation has Casa Ángeles, one of its flagships, in the city on the Costa del Sol, the first Global Gift home for underprivileged children in Marbella who suffer from rare and chronic diseases. This Christmas he will also visit her. “The little house located in the mythical Jaime de Mora is something very special. It has been a great experience, I have loved meeting the families who were so happy because there is no other place like this in Marbella, not even in the south of Spain. An achievement of our entire team, ”she told this same medium a couple of years ago.
Although in one of the interviews that Vanitatis did to the protagonist of 'Desperate Housewives' she expressed her desire to buy a house in Marbella, she has not done so yet. During her stays in the town she has always chosen the millionaire luxury house Villa Aire to stay. The spectacular villa is located in one of the most exclusive urbanizations in the area and is built with the highest standards of quality and design. Another of the places that the actress chooses to stay, when her stay in the city is shorter, is the Meliá Don Pepe hotel, the venue for her annual charity gala.
Her latest project in Spain
During this 2022, Eva Longoria's work schedule has been very busy and has also occasionally linked her to our country on the occasion of the filming in Figueres (Gerona) of the six-episode series for the television platform Apple TV +, 'Land of Women', based on the novel by Sandra Barneda 'The land of women', and in which she shares a cast with the Spanish actress Carmen Maura.
