Once one of Hollywood's most celebrated couples, Eva Longoria and Tony Parker no longer speak.

The Desperate Housewives beauty makes this revelation on Thursday's edition of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she reveals the lessons that came out of her very public break-up with the San Antonio Spurs point guard.

"You can be yourself and really hold your own by yourself no matter what partnership you’re in,” Longoria said.

Ellen responded, "Because when things -- or if -- I shouldn’t say when ...

"In Hollywood, it’s when," Longoria chimed in.

The 36-year-old actress said everyone's been telling her she looks younger and better than she ever has.

"I’m going, 'Wow!' I think divorce agrees with me!" Longoria said.

Ellen asked Longoria, “You and Tony are friendly: Do you still talk?” to which Longoria responded, “No.”

Parker and Longoria wed in 2007, three years after they were introduced following a Spurs game in 2004. They announced they were splitting in November 2010, and finalized it in January 2011.
