Poor Erin Barry, after reports surfaced that she was the other woman involved in the cheating / sexting allegations and responsible for the divorce of Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, she has been shoved into the media spotlight.
Erin Barry has not left her house since Wednesday because of the paparazzi frendzie. According to the San Antonio Dispatch, police have been called to the Terrell Hills home to keep everything under control. Erin Barry and her ex-husband and Parker’s former San Antonio Spurs teammate Brent Barry have owned the home since 2004, and it is valued at $2 million.
Erin Barry is currently in law school at St. Mary’s in San Antonio. While Erin Barry was in class on Wednesday, she did not go to class yesterday. Erin Barry has shown interest in the law field before. She helped write Senate Bill 6 to help reform Child Protective Services.
Someone commented on the Washington Post’s coverage of the Parker Longoria divorce saying, “I go to law school w/Erin Barry. She seemed like a very nice lady, given we’ve only talked a few times, but very intelligent and personable.”
St. Mary’s semester finals being on November 30 and run through December 10…. so it looks like she is going to be leaving her house soon!

Tony Parker is just the latest athlete to be involved in a text message scandal. But it was a year ago this Thanksgiving news broke of the Tiger Woods cheating allegations. While Parker and Brett Favre have been giving Tiger some time off by dominating the headlines, Tiger has begun a PR campaign to help restore his image.
The golfer even joined Twitter, @TigerWoods, posting two tweets yesterday:
”What’s up everyone. Finally decided to try out twitter!”
“‘Yep, it’s me. I think I like this twitter thing. You guys are awesome. Thanks for all the love.”
In just one day, Tiger has attracted more than 180,000 followers. Along with trying to connect with fans on Twitter, the normally private Tiger has embarked on a media campaign. This morning, Tiger did an almost 20-minute interview with ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike. In the interview Tiger revealed, “It’s amazing how much better I feel internally each and every day. How thankful I am to have the connection to my kids,” Woods said. “I feel so much better and everything is in much better perspective now.”
After his Mike and Mike interview, Tiger tweeted, “The best part about phone interviews is getting to wear shorts.”
I just hope this time Tiger keeps his shorts on! To follow thejerseychaser.com on Twitter click here!
Brent Barry’s father has confirmed what we all already knew; Tonny Parker cheated on his wife Eva Longoria with teammate Brent Barry’s wife Erin. Rick Barry is a legendary NBA player, whose son Brent followed in his footsteps playing in the NBA from 1995 until last year when he was waived by the Houston Rockets. Longoria allegedly discovered the text messages between Erin Barry and Parker confirming the affair.
Rick Barry told TMZ, “I feel horrible for my son. I’m in shock.”
Longoria allegedly discovered the text messages between Erin Barry and her husband prompting her to file for divorce today at a Los Angeles courthouse.
“I knew [Erin] was moving out of the house soon and SHE was the one that filed for divorce. This is the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Rick told TMZ.
Brent Barry and Tony Parker were teammates from 2004-2008. Brent and Erin Barry filed for divorce two weeks ago, and a source told Examiner.com that it was likely Brent Barry who contacted Longoria to tell her about the text messages.
Rick added, “He (Brent) is going to be devastated. I can’t even imagine him going through this … the divorce was hard enough news.”
