Mario Lopez Might Be Up For Being Kelly Ripa’s Co-Host

Screen Shot 2016-04-29 at 9.08.40 AM

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.

Mario Lopez Talks Fatherhood

Kesha at Planes: Fire & Rescue Premiere in Hollywood

Mario Lopez, host of Extra and Saved by the Bell alum – can also add father to two adorable children to his resume.  Lopez and his wife, Courtney, share a daughter, Gia Francesca, 3 1/2, and a son, Dominic, 10 months.  Lopez spoke with People recently about his family’s summer plans and how fatherhood has affected him.

“We just got our pool finished so when Gia is not in Montessori school or at ballet classes, I get her to go swimming with her little brother, who has learned to swim before walking.”

He adds, “We all love summer because we can be outside and get a lot of exercise while having fun.”

Gia is also learning how to speak Spanish, play the piano, do gymnastics and enjoy theme parks.

Sounds like they keep the kids busy!  Lopez continues:

“No matter what drama I deal with at work, when I get home and hear them scream, ‘Daddy!’ I forget whatever it was I was stressed about,” he explains.

When Lopez — whose candid new book, Just Between Us, [out in September]— has to be out of town for a day or two, he talks to the children on the phone and on Skype.

But if the business trip requires more than three days away, he arranges to take the children along.

“The hardest part of my new life as a dad is leaving for work in the morning,” Lopez says. “These kids have totally changed my life. They are simply fantastic!”

I love when dads dote on their kids.  I find it incredibly sexy in a man.  For example, nothing beats a dad who will play princess dress up with his daughter.

Adrienne Maloof Paid 25K To Make Out With Mario Lopez

Wow, I know we all liked Saved By The Bell, but this is ridiculous…

Last night in LA, Real Housewives star Adrienne Maloof paid $25,000 for a makeout session with Mario Lopez!

Maloof and Lopez were part of the Have a Heart Auction in Honor of Zeke (,  an event to raise money for Zeke Kendall, a 20-year-old man who underwent heart transplant surgery last month.

The auction,  held at Mixology at The Grove,  featured a red dress from the Kim Kardashian collection (worn by Kim herself, pre pregnancy) and a signed Charlie Sheen jersey from the movie “Major League.”

Many celebs put their lips on the auction table for the cause, including “Extra” co-host Maria Menounos, Jaime Pressley and Jane Seymour.  Where Maloof saved her money for Mr. Lopez, some dude bid and won on all three of the lovely ladies being auctioned!

Would you pay 25-30,000 to kiss one of these celebs?
