The wedding of actress Eva Longoria, which takes place later this year on July 7th just outside Paris, will have an unusual twist to it.

Eva, who is to marry NBA superstar Tony Parkes, will be followed down the aisle by none other than her pet dog, Jinxie! Jinxie, a white Maltese, will follow its owner into the venue all the way to the altar, where San Antion Spurs fiance Tony will be waiting.

Eva, who is already said to spend over $500 per month on pedicures, grooming and more on Jinxie, is also rumoured to have splashed out on a custom-made jewel-encrusted diamond collar enscribed with the lucky wedding date (07/07/07).

The Desperate Housewives star, 32, has hired Mandy Weiss, wedding planner to the stars, to help co-ordinate the big day and has already set builders to work on the luxury mansion in Texas she and her new hubby will live in once they return from honeymoon. Eva is also reported as saying "My friend Kenny (Kenny Chesney - country music star) is going to sing at my wedding. He just doesn't know yet."

It is not clear yet as to whether or not the diamond collar was part of Mandy's original plans, or whether it is for Jinxie, Tony or Kenny!
