There is really no reason to write this outside of sharing this insane photo of Mario Lopez with all of our beautiful and loyal readers. So, here you go—enjoy!
Mario's all dressed up in leather and lace for a guest spot on the hit FX show Nip/Tuck this season. He's reprising his role as Dr. Mike Hamoui on the show, who hasn't made an appearance since season four which aired back in 2006. Apparently, his story line involves him getting all freaky with Dr. Kimber Henry (Kelly Carlson).

I was only six-years-old when Sam Bobrick’s Saved by the Bell made its television debut on August 20th, 1989—exactly 20 years ago today. But a few years after the show premiered, I caught it in syndication and instantly fell in love. It was clever, it taught me valuable life lessons and had tons of heart. Best of all, it was spit-your-juice-out-your-nose funny! To this day, it remains one of my all-time favorite shows, and I believe it showcased some of the best work from Mexican heartthrob Mario Lopez (now the host of Extra).

When the women I know talk about Mario Lopez, they refer to the former spandex-wearing Saved by the Bell star as a “hot dog.” Surely, these ladies aren’t implying that the "Mexican Ryan Seacrest" is a weenie, a frankfurter, a moist sausage or a Wiener Würstchen (that would be ridiculous, wouldn’t it?). No, what they are really suggesting is that Mario is a good-looking bloke (forgive me, I’m a bit British today) who also happens to be a bit of a dog, or a player (as in cheater, playboy and womanizer, y'all).

George Lopez delivered a blow to Mario Lopez's healthy ego yesterday, telling Fox News' "Pop Tarts" that he doesn't plan to invite the beefcake Extra host to be a guest on his new late night show when it premieres in the fall.

Extra host Mario Lopez has hosted every kind of show under the Red, White and Blue sun (dog shows, even), which is why he reminds me so much of a certain American Idol host extraordinaire. But when I told Mario that Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas called him the "Mexican Ryan Seacrest"—out of admiration and respect, of course—he wasn’t feeling the comparison: “Well, Taboo is a very talented, great guy, so thanks for the compliment. But I’m looking to be the first Mario Lopez. I don’t follow in anybody’s footsteps.”
