Mario Lopez is loving this.

The host did nothing to quell the rumors that he might be lining up to replace Michael Strahan on Live with Kelly and Michael during a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. As he talked to Ellen DeGeneres, Lopez refused to deny that he’s being considered for the show alongside Kelly Ripa, which is of course fine, but also, c’mon. You KNOW Kelly wants Anderson Cooper and/or Andy Cohen wayyyyy more than you, bro. US Weekly reports:

“That’s very flattering. Very flattering. You’re so nice,” Lopez replied when DeGeneres said she’d heard the rumors. “I know, people were saying that. I love Kelly. I’ve guest-hosted with her a few times — she’s awesome. I actually did a movie with her husband, Mark [Consuelos], who’s a real good guy,” he added, in a minor attempt to change the subject.

“Yeah, he seems like it,” said DeGeneres, refusing to be deflected.

“I’m looking forward to going back and guest-hosting again,” he replied.

“‘Cause you’re gonna guest-host again?” DeGeneres continued, refusing to let the topic drop.

“Yes, I’m looking forward to it.”

“And then maybe you’ll be the replacement?” the 58-year-old TV star pressed. “I’m not starting rumors. You’re not shutting it down. You’re not saying, ‘Absolutely not,'” she noted.

“Well, I got to go over everything with Mrs. Lopez. She’s the real boss of the house, so we’ll see what she has to say about that,” replied Lopez, 42.

Ugh. I find Mario Lopez corny as hell and I think this move is in alignment with that corniness. He’s just trying to drum up publicity and still being cute and smug. BARF.
