We don’t blame a guy for putting his unbelievably hot body to good use by modelling underwear. And yet, we were about to join in on the Internet chorus of “this is cute but kinda creepy!” when we saw the above photo Courtney Mazza Lopez tweeted last week of husband Mario Lopez decorating his Christmas tree in a pair of tight-fitting briefs, as their 2-year-old daughter Gia looked on.
“My husband looks hot rockin his @RatedMOfficial with his little elf….#lovethem,” she wrote.
But then we looked a little more closely at Courtney’s tweet, and how it specifically calls out @RatedMOfficial. And wouldn’t you know, both Courtney and Mario are actually the underwear brand’s models in a new campaign, appearing hand in hand in giant billboards and on the company’s website.
If there are two people who’s names are synonymous with the struggle for vocal mastery and the pursuit of musical achievement, it would most certainly be Khloe Kardashian and Mario Lopez. Good thing they’re joining The X Factor as the show’s new co-hosts! We’re just joking, of course. We all know being a reality show host requires only enthusiasm, witty banter and extensive tooth whitening. It’s not like Cat Deeley has ever had to jitterbug a step in her life, and we’re 83% sure Joe Rogan as ever eaten a live cockroach.
According to TMZ, Khloe and Mario are currently finalizing their deals with the show, and are slated to debut on the small screen in November. While we approve of anything that sets Khloe apart from her family members and reminds America that she is the relatable one, we’re inclined to tell Mario to up his game now. He’s sweet and all, but Khloe has so much sass and so many inches on him, we’re afraid Mario will seem like just another pretty, preternaturally smooth face by comparison. Remember how the first season of American Idol had two hosts: Ryan Seacrest and Brian Dunkleman? Where’s Brian Dunkleman now, Lopez? Where is Brian Dunkleman now?

We all get by with a little help from our friends, but celebs even more so. After all, Hollywood is a tough biz, and the only way to survive the ups and downs of Tinseltown is by surrounding yourself with a few true pals who will stick by your side in good times as well as during the bumps and slumps. We’ve long loved the enduring bond Oprah Winfrey and her BFF Gayle King share, and got teary-eyed this awards season watching Busy Phillips escort her nominated pal Michelle Williams to every event in town. And who can resist dudes like Tom Sturridge and Robert Pattinson and Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are always on hand to support each other’s personal and professional triumphs?
And then there are gals like Snooki and J-Woww, who have stuck by each other from day one in the Jersey Shore house. Through booze, bitch slaps, anonymous note-leaving, Vinny sex and drunken fights on the streets of Italy, they’ve never left each other’s side. The girls have a new reality show premiering tonight on MTV chronicling — what else? — the ups and downs of their friendship. In honor of their unbreakable bond, we’ve got 35 of the Most Adorable Celebrity Besties in the gallery below. Have a fave pair? Shout ‘em out in the comments.
There’s nothin’ like a dude in a well-cut suit. Scratch that — there’s nothing like a dude in a well-cut anything. Which is why we love this selection of looks that these 10 male celebrities wore to the MTV Movie Awards. A lot of styles were represented. We had classic with Chris Hemsworth in a waistcoat and shirt. That man is so incredibly handsome. Andrew Garfield wore a tie and skinny pants, while Mario Lopez put on a blazer and V-neck. We had the bad boy in Diego Boneta who looked sexy as hell in leather jacket, and hipster, with Josh Hutcherson in a pork pie hat and sneakers. Andy Samberg toed the line between formal and casual, with a blazer teamed with kicks and a casual T-shirt. Perhaps the most eye-catching look of all came courtesy Joe Manganiello who wore a stripper-friendly fireman’s outfit on stage. Hello, abs! Take a look at the gallery below for all the hotness.
Grab your stereotypical sombrero everybody, it’s Cinco de Mayo! In the American tradition of commercializing obscure holidays that have very little to do with their actual countries of origin, today’s festivities must include a street dance with a mariachi band, many tequila shots and some probably inauthentic Mexican food. How else to commemorate a minor victory over French invaders? Well, we’d also like to celebrate some of the other things our neighbors south of the border have given to the world, say for instance, a number of Hollywood’s hottest. Talented stars like Eva Longoria, Demi Lovato, and Mario Lopez are just a few of our favorite Mexican stars. While not all listed celebs are full-blood Mexican — and some on this list may surprise you — we like to think they all have a healthy dose of Latino pride. Take a break from your margarita blender and toast our 20 favorite celebs with Mexican roots. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hell hath no fury like Ali Landry scorned! The Hollywood Girls Night host has been spilling dirt about her ex-husband Mario Lopez‘s cheating ways during their marriage left and right this week, and the fact they haven’t been together for eight years does not seem to phase her in the slightest. “He did suck, it still does suck. It hurt a lot and he never apologized,” Landry revealed to HuffPo about Lopez’s infidelities, which spurred her to annul their marriage after only two weeks in 2004. “That’s hurtful, when someone you cared about never stepped up to the plate to at least say, “I’m so sorry I did that to you.” But with that said, I had to be even stronger and figure out a way to move forward on my own.” For shame, Mario. Did the fiery feminist spirit of Jessie Spano teach you nothing?
Landry has since remarried to current hubs Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, with whom she had daughter Estela Ines and baby Marcelo Alejandro. So…we guess she just had to get this last bit of bitterness off her chest before she can move on? “I was like, ‘I don’t want to tap a phone! I can’t believe I’m doing this.’ So she did, and right after the honeymoon I started getting phone calls from these girls,” the actress revealed about her doomed relationship with the Live! with Kelly cohost to Wendy Williams last week. “I confronted him and he still – to this day – denied it and never apologized. It was horrible.” But as Ali laughs now, “…I say it every single day. Like, ‘Thank God I’m not with that person. Thank God!’ I’m grateful that happened, really!” Um, yeah…we’ll have to take your word for it, girl.

If you were rooting for the Patriots last night, you’re probably feeling pretty bummed out right about now. But here’s something to help cheer you up a little bit! And if you happened to be Team Giants, well then here’s yet another reason to celebrate. Extra host and Pats superfan Maria Menounos made a bet with fellow co-anchors Mario Lopez and AJ Calloway last week that the New Englanders would go on to win their fourth Super Bowl victory. If they didn’t, she would bare her bikini bod on air in frigid Times Square!
Sadly for her — but great for the rest of us — she lost the wager and ended up having to strip down to a tiny Giants-themed swimsuit as a crowd of fans looked on. No word on what the guys had to do if that Patriots won, but honestly, we’re too mesmerized with these photos to care. We bet they’ll even make Tom Brady smile today!

Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:

A year after Jennifer Lopez sued ex-husband Ojani Noa to keep him from releasing sexy video footage of herself, we now know just what Ojani’s got in his memory chest. While the pair never made a sex tape, he does have clips of J. Lo flashing Cubans on holiday! “JLo is riding a scooter in public in Cuba, while talking to the camera and numerous by-standers, with her privates in as plain view as Paris Hilton, “Britany Spears and Lindsay Lohan have in the past,” explains agent Edward Meyer to Radar, with legal papers saying the singer showed “deviant behavior by consensually exposing her genital area in public,” which she gave “full consent” to Noa to tape. Personally, we’d argue exposing her Gigli to the public was far more deviant.
Meyer’s argument that he shouldn’t be bound by any deal Lopez made with Noa seems a little specious, and we wouldn’t be surprised if this footage fails to see the light of day. But if Noa tried to audition for American Idol, odds are this guy will continue to be a thorn in J. Lo’s side for…well, ever. Check out photos of the fully-dressed star with Denzel Washington and Mario Lopez at a Boys and Girls Club event yesterday in the gallery below.
