A rep for Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria Parker says the actress is innocent of charges filed against her earlier this week in connection with the Las Vegas franchise of her restaurant, Beso, according to the LA Times. On Tuesday, former Beso managers Ronen and Mali Nachum slapped the star with a lawsuit, claiming that she breached their contract and failed to repay a $280,000 construction loan for the restaurant. “All allegations made by the Nachums against Longoria Parker, her business partner and restaurant are absolutely false, untrue and without merit,” said the actress’ lawyer in a statement.
