It was clear that wasn't the case this week, however, as the diminutive Desperate Housewives beauty cheered on her man with the spirit of a lioness.
And it seems her support helped spur on Tony, who is getting back to form after recovering from an ankle injury. The 27-year-old sportsman helped secure a victory for the French national team against Germany.
Tony, who was born in Belgium but raised in France, and his 34-year-old wife are currently in Poland, while Tony represents his country in the EuroBasket championships.
Despite her busy schedule, Eva is fiercely supportive of her man's career, and attends matches whenever she can. And he frequently returns the favour when it comes to her ventures, often visiting her on the Housewives set.
The couple were free of the stresses of work over the summer, unwinding on a luxury yacht in St Tropez. But typical of the action-loving pair, more than just sun bathing was on the menu.
They took daredevil leaps off the side of the vessel and hopped onto a jet ski to race across the azure waves.
