Happy Birthday, "Saved by the Bell!"
By Lee Hernandez | 08/20/2009 - 09:45

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).

Mario Lopez is a Wiener!
By Lee Hernandez | 06/16/2009 - 17:00

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).

Exclusive: Mario Lopez, "Don't Call Me the Mexican Ryan Seacrest"
By Lee Hernandez | 03/26/2009 - 09:23

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.”
