Ex-partners sue Longoria Parker

Eva Longoria Parker is getting sued by the married couple she ejected as partners from her Beso restaurant and Eve club at CityCenter.

In May, she and other business partners dumped Ronen and Mali Nachum, accusing them of financial shenanigans.

Now the Nachums have sued for breach of contract, claiming accusations against them are false. They want money, plus their jobs back.

As of Monday, the actress was keeping mum because this is a legal matter, a rep told me.

But her partner J.T. Torregiani told someone at Radar Online, “We did nothing wrong” and “Anyone can sue anyone for anything at any time.”

Radar slants the TV star as a bad girl in its first sentence: “Eva Longoria Parker’s golden touch has been tarnished.” Perez Hilton asked in his headline: Is she a “tyrant”? Harsh.

Something’s always going on at CityCenter. That should be the marketing tag line over there.


The last time I saw comedian Dave Attell, we were at the porn awards at the Palms in January. He was the host. He’s still riding the high of that gig, he says.

“You were there. You saw how stressful and tense it was backstage at the AVN awards.”

Do I ever.

“There’s a lot of, ‘OK, you need to introduce Best (certain sex act my editors won’t let me print). Here comes Miss (another sex act I can’t divulge).’ It’s very stressful.

“My friend said, ‘So are you gonna host any other awards shows?’ I’m like, ‘Why? I think that one’s the best.'”

He performs Friday at Treasure Island.

Attell — who once brought his Comedy Central show, “Insomniac,” to Vegas — says he’s looking at houses for sale here. He can’t believe how cheap they are.

I told him housing is cheap all over America.

“Not in New York, it ain’t,” the New Yorker joked. “In New York, people believe they should hold onto something until somebody flies something into it.”

By the way, Attell (one of the funniest men alive) worked quite a bit with Mitch Hedberg (one of the funniest men dead), who died at 37 in 2005 (you can thank coke and heroin). Attell says he and others tried rationalizing with him.

“We’ve all had our moment with him where we were like, ‘Dude … !’

“He had a really good, sweet side, but he also had a demon side,” Attell says.

Attell adds that it was hard to follow the popular and likable Hedberg onstage, with his funny, short, esoteric, visual and clean jokes.

“It’s sad that Mitch isn’t here for a lot of reasons. But one of them is he would rock out on Twitter.”

A typical Mitch-ism: “I like rice. Rice is great when you’re hungry and you want 2,000 of something.”


Caesars singer Matt Goss is hosting a shindig at his Gossy Room theater starting at
11:30 a.m. Saturday. He plans on wearing a Brit jersey. He challenged me to wear a USA jersey. This is for the USA-England game of the World Cup, which has something to do with soccer?

It’ll be shown on a big screen. There will be drink specials and some buffet.

Most important, Goss says, is he wants real live soccer “hooligans” to show up, which naturally reminded me of awesome, awesome “Eurotrip.” So I’ll go learn about soccer, and I’ll be there.

And if you know of other fun USA-England parties, give me an e-mail shout with “World Cup” in the subject line.
