Parker stays on Longoria’s radar

Tony Parker continues to rub his divorce in the face of Eva Longoria.

Last year, he and Eva were all about her restaurant-club Beso-Eve. Post-split, he keeps popping into rival clubs on the Strip and restaurants at Tao and Lavo.

On Saturday, he hung briefly with "Dancing With the Stars’ " Karina Smirnoff then danced with petite brunettes. On Sunday, he ate at Lavo with his brother and friends, then partied at club Lavo.

At least he’s not chatting up the ladies at Beso-Eve, or at Todd English P.U.B. next door to Beso-Eve.

That’s not a suggestion, Tony, but it would make the news.


Motocross and skateboarding hero Travis Pastrana got engaged in an extreme way at his Nitro Circus Live this weekend at the MGM Grand.

He was standing atop a huge ramp, about to soar down on his skateboard when he grabbed a microphone.

"I hate to interrupt this show," he said. "The love of my life is at the bottom of this ramp."

He skidded to the ground. His girlfriend, the skateboarder Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, was carried to him by a Nitro worker.

"Will you marry me?" Pastrana asked.

She said yes. He picked her up. Loud speakers played Elvis’ "Can’t Help Falling in Love."

He had planned to propose later in the show.

"But I was too nervous" to wait, he said. "Lyn-Z, I love you."

The crowd went wild. You can see it on YouTube by searching for "Travis Pastrana’s proposal."

Later, they celebrated at Studio 54, where he announced the engagement to clubbers.


New daddy Nick Cannon DJ’d at Paris club Chateau this weekend, and he said the motherhood journey has been an eye-opener for Mariah Carey.

"She really knows what being a woman is being about now. Before childbirth, most women don’t have any idea. … She’s in that exclusive club now."

I asked him whether Carey screamed in tune in the delivery room.

"She was actually really calm. The only thing that was bad for her was the epidural. Other than that, she was good."

He explained again why he and Carey named their twins Moroccan and Monroe.

"Monroe for my daughter — my wife has always been inspired by Marilyn Monroe," he said on a red carpet.

"Moroccan … I proposed to my wife in our Moroccan room in our house. We’ve got a lot of Moroccan-inspired stuff around the crib. It kind of works. But we call him Roc, so our kids’ names are Roc and Roe."

Cannon, friendly and in good spirits as usual, was also working in Vegas last week, filming "America’s Got Talent."

"Family comes first always. But you gotta feed your family, as well. So I’ve got mouths to feed. So I don’t sleep now."
