Mario Lopez got Maria Menounos fired
If Maria Menounos getting fired leads to a downward career spiral that forced her to turn to Playboy
so she can pay her rent, then we're gonna owe Mario Lopez a huge pat on the back. From Page Six
Maria Menounos is out at "Extra" amid rumors she clashed with her co-host Mario Lopez, Page Six has exclusively learned. We are told that Menounos' contract is up and isn't being renewed, with one source saying, "Maria and Mario barely even speak to each other."
One source told us of Menounos, who famously stripped down to a bikini after losing a bet on her beloved Patriots when they lost to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLVI, "Maria has become a big diva. Do we really need to see her in a bikini yet again?"
But another source insisted it was dimpled former "Saved by the Bell" star Lopez who had the bigger ego. That source added, "Maria's contract is up and she has decided to move on. She is deciding between a number of other opportunities."
I guess it's official: Extra
will be taped from John Travolta's closet from now on. It's the only conclusion I can come to when the world is so backwards that A.C. Slater has enough pull to fire Maria Menounos and her ass
from the Entertainment Tonight
Ripoff Hour. Who even watches Extra
besides Maria stalkers like me, anyway? The people that still get their entertainment news from Mario Lopez on TV need to research this new thing called the internet. If they still need to stare at a down-low TV host trying to mask the obvious, they'll keep watching American Idol

Mario Lopez at The Grove in Hollywood
To make good on his "lost" Super Bowl bet, Extra
host and 49ers' fan Mario Lopez stripped down to his underwear yesterday [from his own "Rated M" line, the self-promoting prick], donned a Ravens' helmet, and ran a lap around The Grove in Hollywood. Mario Lopez. Who looks like a god damn Greek god. You dick. Hey, here's a better bet: You have to eat pizza and not work out for six months.*5 Mario Lopez pictures total in the gallery:

Mario Lopez got kicked out of a Chinese restaurant a few weeks ago after becoming irate that they wouldn't accommodate his request for healthier food. "You go home, now!" From the National Enquirer
"When Mario walked in he was gracious to the diners who recognized him, but his mood turned ugly when he didn't get his way with the wait staff," an eyewitness at CBS Seafood Restaurant tells The Enquirer. "He's very health conscious, and he wanted his stir fried dishes prepared without oil and for them to use low sodium soy and oyster sauce. It was unbelievable. He wanted them to change the entire way they cook their stir-fry dishes. He wanted the chefs to use water in place of oil in their woks. Mario tried to explain exactly what he wanted, but I don't think he or the waiter really understood each other because of the language barrier."
With each passing moment, Mario's voice got louder and louder. Then he yelled out, "Does anyone speak English here?" When the waiter responded "no," Mario lashed out with a profanity-laced tirade, adds the source. "The restaurant manager couldn't take the disruption anymore, so he went over to Mario and said, 'You need to leave now!' But Mario didn't budge. He said 'I'm not leaving until I get my food the way I want it.'" Mario eventually decided against staying, but only after the manager threatened to call the cops! (Print Edition - 6/15)
I'm confused, was Saved by the Bell
a bigger hit than I remember? On the importance scale, A.C. Slater was lower than both Screech and Mr. Belding, so I'm not sure where all this confidence is coming from. Being an extra on a TV show called Extra
shouldn't give Mario that much of an ego boost -- if he was smart, he'd pull a Natalee Holloway and just quietly disappear. In all seriousness Mario, I think I can help with your rage issue that most certainly has nothing to do with steroids so don't think that for a second. The next time you want to eat healthy food, how about you don't go to a restaurant that features fried everything? Or at least make sure to ask them -- politely -- to hold the HGH.

Mario Lopez in Miami
Just days after ex-wife Ali Landry finally spoke about the cheating incident
that ended their week-old marriage in 2004, Mario Lopez went for a little jog Sunday in Miami. Shirtless of course. And then he did some pushups on the water, much like Jesus Christ used to do. I think he was trying to show off or something. Ali was right -- this guy's a total asshole.*40 Mario Lopez pictures total in the gallery:
Ali Landry in Malibu in 2009
Hey, remember when Mario Lopez married Ali Landry (aka "Doritos Girl") in 2004 and then got caught cheating two weeks into the marriage? Because she does. Oh yes she does. With a vengeance. She said
on The Wendy Williams Show
"I never spoke about it after it happened. That's probably the most dramatic thing that ever happened to me in my life. It was absolutely horrible -- now I have a husband and children -- but it was terrible ... I had heard something right before the wedding. He swore that it was not true but I had that feeling in my gut. But all my family was flying away for our destination wedding and it was a big trip for them. I really should have put the brakes on it at that point, but I was afraid ... One of girlfriends said, 'If you really want to know, I know how to tap a phone.' The craziest thing. I thought, 'I don't want to tap his phone. This is the man I've been with, I should trust him.'"
Landry did it anyway and says that, after their honeymoon, she began noticing his calls from assorted woman.
"I confronted him and he denied it," said Landry. "He never apologized. Still to this day."
Oh, geez, this is embarrassing. Doesn't Ali know her position on Hollywood's totem pole? Here's a big hint: It's several notches below AC Slater. Why would that be, you ask? For starters, her career is over. I guess you can call that the finisher, too. At least Mario has been able to parlay his abs into that sweet gig on Extra
, but what has Ali done? Nothing. You could say that if it wasn't for her genetic samples, we never would have met her clones Maria Menounos
, Victoria Justice
, and Vanessa Minnillo
. But let's be real, anyone can find a hot brunette who can't hold a conversation -- it's called happy hour and it's fucking magical.*20 Ali Landry pictures total in the gallery:

Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza hosting a New Year's Eve party at Eve nightclub in Las Vegas
Prepare yourself for some shocking news: A celebrity is attempting to use their fame for personal benefit. Oh no! What is this world coming to? From the National Enquirer
Cheap, Cheap, Cheap! No, that’s not tiny birds you hear -- it’s the sound of the “Extra” cast and crew twittering about the hit show’s tight-fisted, freebie-fixated host Mario Lopez. Anyway, the buffed, extremely handsome star beats even Star Jones when it comes to snagging free stuff, sources say -- designer duds, dude bling, a home makeover, etc. -- and when dining out, Lopez often lopes off just before the check arrives.
But insiders were really shocked when Mario went mega-mooch, hustling an “Extra” boss to promote him a “freebie” diamond engagement ring from advertiser Kay Jewelers-so he could present it to baby-momma Courtney Mazza! Horrified, the exec wailed: “Are you kidding!? Enough with the freebies! This is a ring you’re giving to a women you’re going to marry-not to mention she’s the mother of your child! Step up and PAY for it, Mario! This is a very personal item- not something you barter for!” Shocked and upset at her reaction, Mario groused: “Fine, I’ll figure it out myself.”
Why stop at the ring? If you're going to whore yourself out, you might as well go all the way.

Did Mario Lopez break up Eva Longoria's marriage? Sure, why not. From the National Enquirer
“Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria’s husband Tony Parker cheated on her with up to SEVEN different women, The Enquirer has learned exclusively. But the couple’s marriage was also torpedoed by the basketball star’s jealousy over Eva’s platonic friendship with “Extra” host Mario Lopez and Tony’s frustration that she couldn’t get pregnant, insiders say.
“Eva thought she’d found the perfect man in Tony, but in the end he deceived her, lied to her and broke her heart,” a close source told The Enquirer. Tony was also rumored to be secretly seeing another women in France besides Alexandra Paressant. Despite his cheating, Tony was extremely jealous of Eva’s close friendship with Mario Lopez, insiders say. “Tony never liked or trusted Mario,” said a source. “He called him ‘the pretty boy actor who’s mad that he can’t have my wife.’” (Print Edition - 12/13)
Can you really blame Tony for not wanting his wife to hang out with Mario Lopez? I'm not the jealous type, but if my wife was always palling around with a dude whose abs look like they came straight off of an infomercial, I might just decide to wander off and sleep with a bunch of different woman, too. Then again, if I was a millionaire athlete, jealousy wouldn't cause me to cheat. But an empty bathroom stall might.*6 Mario Lopez pictures total in the gallery:
Mario Lopez and his bouncy girlfriend Courtney Mazza
"A great guy" as long as you're not dating him. If you are, you better keep your body fat % under 10. From Fox
Mario Lopez is so body-obsessed, he persuaded his beautiful girlfriend, Courtney Mazza, to undergo rigorous personal training and encouraged surgery to get her into even better shape. Sources say friends of Mazza are concerned that the image-conscious n"Extra" host started nudging her to perfect her already amazing looks once they got together. They met in 2008 while appearing together in the Broadway revival of "A Chorus Line" and started dating the next year when Mazza moved to Burbank, Calif. She's expecting their baby in September.
One source told us, "Mario is obsessed with his image. He spends a lot of time working out, and he expects his girlfriend to do the same. Even his new book is called 'Extra Lean.'
"Courtney was engaged to a guy in Queens before she met Mario, but once they got together she dropped everything to go to California and be with him," the source said. "He encouraged her to work out with a trainer every day. She underwent a boob job and liposuction last spring. Once her body was perfect, he arranged for them to be photographed on a beach."
This is disgusting. Mario should just be happy with the way his girlfriend is:
bouncy. Seriously, any guy that isn't happy with those tits
needs to take a good look at himself in the mirror . . . which sounds like something Mario would be all too happy to do. As vain as it is, Mario might be onto something with this idea. There is one surgery that will make any woman more appealing: larynx removal.*10 pics total in the gallery:
