The big gossip news right now is San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker's alleged infidelity and pending divorce with "Desperate Housewives" star Eva Longoria. Why on earth anyone would want to cheat on someone who looks like Longoria is beyond us. Then again, Erin Barry, the wife and high-school sweetheart of Parker's former teammate Brent Barry and the woman Parker's accused of either banging or just sexting with (the Barrys are former Queen Anne residents), is certainly no slouch.

The Barrys hold a special place in Seattle's heart. Brent aka "Bones" used to start alongside Gary Payton in the Sonics' backcourt. Dude could find the open man in a crowd and shoot the three-ball lights-out, making 669 shots from behind the arc and amassing 4,107 points in his Sonic tenure. He's also the only Caucasian to ever win the All-Star Weekend dunk contest.

Erin Barry may be no Eva Longoria, but damn!
His wife, meanwhile, busied herself with loads of charity work and just generally looking gorgeous. A slack-jawed Seattle Weekly managing editor Mike Seely once ran into her at a charity event in town. Recalling the decade-old encounter, he says that "while I don't endorse philandering or extramarital flirting, I can certainly understand Parker's alleged interest on a purely animalistic level."

The good old days, it seems, are over, as both couples have now filed for divorce.

Maybe now that he's single, Brent will take another run at trying to convince LeBron James to start a new NBA franchise in Seattle.
