Talk about convenient timing. One day after news broke that Eva Longoria is developing a dating show for NBC, she's been linked to someone new. The "Desperate Housewives" star, who parted ways with beau-of-one-year Eduardo Cruz earlier this month, has touched off talk that she's dating one of her longtime friends, actor Amaury Nolasco.

Life & Style says the pair enjoyed an "intimate" dinner date on March 22 in Los Angeles.

"She was flirting," tattles a source. "It looked like they were a couple."

After the meal, Eva, 37, was snapped laughing with the bald-pated star of "Prison Break" and the mercifully short-lived cross-dressing "comedy" "Work It" as they waited for the valet. They drove off separately, but the tab says they were later seen "cuddling" over a nightcap.

Nolasco, 41, reportedly called it quits late last year with "House" actress Jennifer Morrison after three years together.

Reps for Longoria and Nolasco remain mum on the hookup rumblings.
