Actress Eva Longoria has finally 'fessed up to dating "philanthropist" and 'Ready For Love' reality show star Ernesto Arguello. And since he's only four years younger than she is, one of Hollywood's hottest cougars may have finally decided she prefers her prey a little more mature.

The couple first met on the set of the Longoria-produced dating show 'Ready for Love,' where Arguello -- despite picking former Miss USA Shandi Finnessey -- proved he wasn't quite ready for love just yet.

"I think that's why our relationship is so special -- we truly started as friends," Longoria, 38, admitted to People. "I guess we have the press to thank for pushing us to see something we didn't see!"

Longoria is, of course, referring to rumors that the two were an item long before they actually were. Or at least before they were ready to cop to it.

"Eva and Ernesto are a perfect match. They both speak Spanish, have the same religion and the same cultural background," a nameless insider divulged. "Their friendship and their similar philanthropic interests laid the foundation for their new romance. They're very much in love."
