Looks like Mario Lopez may have to go from A Chorus Line to the back of the line—at least when it comes to being Karina Smirnoff's favorite dancing dude.
Despite the rumored romance between Lopez and his Dancing With the Stars partner from a few seasons back, Smirnoff tells E! News at the show's 100th-episode celebration Tuesday night that the other Mario, with whom she was just eliminated, was "the best partner ever": "If I could have him back for next season as well, I would love to...We really did click, and we had a great time and great chemistry."
Lopez will no doubt be looking for a less threatening Mario for Smirnoff to compete with next season.
May we suggest Sex and the City's Mario Cantone?
