A few weeks ago Mario Lopez vowed never again to take his shirt off in front of cameras (prompting us to put together this ab-tastic retrospective of his best shirtless moments), but lucky for us, he's not one to stick to his word. The Extra host is giving us an extra peek at his smokin' bod, and this time, it's not just the shirt that's coming off.

We've seen Mario Lopez sign up for some pretty random gigs to keep his name in the papers, but children's book author is one that even surprised us.
The muscle-bound actor is working on an illustrated children's book called Mud Taco, based on his adventures as a Mexican kid growing up in California. In keeping with the family-friendly theme, Mario will be working with his sister Marissa to write the book, which will come out next year.

Eva Longoria Parker may stand by her man Tony Parker when it comes to things like salacious rumors and paparazzi attacks, but when video games are involved, she's strictly Team Mario—Lopez, that is.
The couple walked the red carpet in solidarity on Friday for the launch of EA Sports' video game NBA Live 09 at Eva's restaurant Beso, but once inside, it was every man (and woman) for himself.

While the blogosphere continues to speculate whether she is or isn't, Eva Longoria Parker is keeping a good sense of humor over the rumors of her pregancy.
"We get a laugh out of it," her best friend Mario Lopez told People on Thursday, after hosting the live finale of MTV's America's Best Dance Crew. "She's really cool. She just takes everything as it comes."

Sugar Ray lead singer Mark McGrath may just wanna fly, but his bosses at Extra would rather he just take a hike. The longtime correspondent for the tabloid show has been relieved of his duties and replaced by...Mario Lopez.
That's right, the former A.C. Slater is milking yet another drop out of his 15 minutes of fame by adding TV host to his eclectic résumé. Mario has been asked to join Extra's primetime broadcast starting Sept. 15, after the show's producers were impressed with job cohosting the weekend edition of the program last year.
