Mario Lopez may have just gotten hitched to Courtney Mazza over the weekend, but we are paying homage to his bachelor days by counting down all of his celebrity romances. We bet that at least one of these will surprise you!
With additional writing by Amaris Castillo.
Of course his dimples were popular with las chicas at a young age! Mario previously confessed that he shared his first kiss with the Black Eyed Peas singer while the two starred in the hit 1980s show, Kids Incorporated. How cute!
Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, 1991 – 1993
Talk about a match made in television heaven! The Saved by the Bell hunk allegedly dated his co-star for several years while shooting the hit show together. The rumors were confirmed in fellow cast mate Dustin Diamond’s memoir. Move over Zack, looks like Kelly was A.C. Slater's girl!
Jaime Pressly, 1997-1998
Journey: Absolution may have gone straight to video, but at least the love scene between Mario and his co-star was a hit off-screen. Although the romance fizzled just a year after dating…
Ali Landry, 1997-2004
We’re sure you’re familiar with this story. After tying the knot with actress/model Ali Landry in April 2004, Mario’s marriage crumbled just two weeks later after rumors of infidelity on his part surfaced. Let’s fast-forward to 2011, when the then 37-year-old Mario opened up about his infamous cheating episode. In a radio interview with Howard Stern, the Extra host said he “messed around” with another woman during his bachelor party weekend in Mexico. There goes that relationship.
Karina Smirnoff, 2006-2008
The footwork chemistry between Mario and Dancing With the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff was enough to land them in second place on the show’s third season, but their romance didn’t make it as far. A spokesperson for the Ukrainian-born Smirnoff said the former couple’s relationship “wasn’t heading in the right direction.”
Courtney Mazza, 2008-Present
The Italian-American actress met Mario during the Broadway production of A Chorus Line, and it’s been a wrap since then. The newlyweds are the proud parents of 2-year-old Gia Francesca.
