Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz have called it quits.

The "Desperate Housewives" actress has officially ended her on-again-off-again relationship with Cruz, brother of Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, his rep told Us Weekly.

Cruz, a Spanish-born singer-composer, and Longoria, who is about a decade older than him, stepped out as a couple in February 2011, just months after Longoria finalized her divorced with NBA player Tony Parker. The couple divorced after she learned that Parker cheated on her and exchanged steamy text messages with other women.

But there didn't seem to be too much trouble in paradise last month.

"I'm in love," the 37-year-old had said. "I'm a hopeless romantic."

And the twosome dispelled any rumors of another breakup when they were spotted canoodling and smooching it up in his native Spain earlier this month. 

It's been a bit of a whirlwind year for the actress. While her ABC show was wrapping up its eighth and final season, the actress and her costars were asked to be witnesses to the defense during Nicollette Sheridan's wrongful termination trial against executive producer Marc Cherry. She did not testify. (The judge declared a mistrial after jurors said they were deadlocked over whether Sheridan's character was killed off the show in an act of retaliation or creative reasons. The case is scheduled to be retried in the fall.)

Longoria also launched her second fragrance, EVAmour, in March, donating a fraction of proceeds to her charity that benefits the Latina community.  

Next up for her? A 13-episode Lifetime soap with Cherry called "Devious Maids" costarring Ana Ortiz and Susan Lucci and slated for 2013. She's also executive-producing the NBC matchmaking series "Ready for Love."

The petite star is set to appear in the upcoming big-screen drama "Long Time Gone" and "The Baytown Outlaws," which also stars Paul Wesley ("The Vampire Diaries") and Billy Bob Thornton.
