Mario Lopez is trying to squash the drama. After rumors flew that Maria Menounos was axed because of Lopez's wishes, the Extra host spoke out: “Those are just rumors,” the 40-year-old told Fox News Latino“She’s still at work every day. We’re fine. There is no truth to that.”

The 40-year-old host is enjoying life (including spending time with his beautiful wife and two kids), and tries not to let rumors nor celebrity life get him down.

“I live in LA so I see a lot of the paparazzi. Here is how I look at it: they’re going to be there anyway and I can let it bother me or I can just accept it for as it is,” he said. “As long as they are not bothering or being a hindrance or scaring my kids, I don’t have an issue with it. They are just taking pictures and my little girl’s a ham. Sometimes they take great pictures.”
