He Got Engaged Over Christmas



[BlindGossip] Everyone knows this cute actor, although you might be hard-pressed to name more than one role he played. He finally got engaged to his girlfriend right around Christmas, but there hasn’t been any announcement yet. Why not? It’s because he’s hoping that some entertainment news program or gossip magazine will slip him a little extra money for the exclusive. Although he is gorgeous, we’re not sure he is gossip-worthy enough that a prominent show or magazine would have slated him as their lead story or their cover. Oh, wait! We take that back. There is one TV show that just might make him their lead story.

Congratulations to Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza! They had a beautiful baby girl named Gia last year, and will now be making their little family official by tying the knot this year.

They got engaged over Christmas, but the public announcement won’t be made until later this week. Although Katy Parry and Russell Brand will dominate the tabloid covers this week, Mario and Courtney will get a sidebar photo on one cover (we think it’s Us Weekly) and an article within. In lieu of payment, that same magazine will pick up the tab for the wedding. Their honeymoon destination will be a Mexican resort, which – yes, you guessed it – will be picking up the tab for the honeymoon. Mario sure knows how to work those contacts! Hey, one flash of those handsome dimples and we might have offered to pick up the tab, too! We will assume that Extra, the entertainment show he hosts, will be generous with their television coverage of this beautiful couple.

From Us Weekly:

Mario Lopez Engaged to Courtney Mazza!

Mario Lopez is ready to make an honest woman out of Courtney Mazza.

The 38-year-old Extra host popped the question over New Year’s weekend in Ixtapa, Mexico, Lopez tells the new issue of Us Weekly (on stands Friday).

“We took a walk alone as the sun was setting,” says Lopez. “I told Courtney that I wanted the mother of my children to have their last name. She was silent at first from shock, then she leaped for joy and did a little jete!”

The couple, who have been together since 2008 and are parents to 2-year-old Gia, plan to wed in Mexico later this year.

“Besides our daughter’s birth, this was the best moment of my life!” Mazza, 28, tells Us.

This was an easy one with which to start out the year. If you caught the key words EXTRA and SLATED, it should have led you directly to Mario, who hosts Extra  and played Slater in Saved by the Bell.

Guesswhat was first with the correct guess, while Annhog1 was the first to pick up on all the clues. Lots of you got this one right. Nice job, everyone!

    Mario Lopez

    • eldridek

      Wasn’t he already engaged to his gf after she had his baby? Like in 2010?

    • Stackhouse

      He’s known for his dimples, which is a ‘cute’ feature. He is also very fit and most find him quite handsome, and I would say that his looks is a part of his fame. In that sense, this guess makes sense. But the again, I don’t know much about his personal life, so Eldridek may be right.

    • Courtpaige

      This is a good one. Has he had a role other than AC Slater?

      • PinkFlamingo

        Yep, and “slated” is a clue…AC Slater. This is him.

      • Dont Know For Sure

        Yep, plus the clue about “extra” the show he works for plust the clue about :

        “We take that back. There is one TV show that just might make him their lead story.”

        Hinting that since he works for them they would give him a lead story.

  • sweets

    Mario Lopez

  • azura1

    Macaulay Culkin?

  • ldnfrk

    Tom Felton?

  • Annhog1

    Mario Lopez?

    • Annhog1

      I should have expanded…

      “hard-pressed” – his abs maybe?
      the one role he played – AC Slater on Saved by the Bell
      “finally got engaged” – he’s only been dating his girlfriend for a little over three years, which doesn’t qualify as “finally” in my book but they do have a kid together so that might be why it says finally
      “slated” – his character, AC Slater, again
      the one TV show that would make him the lead story – Extra, on which he is a sometimes host

  • PoniTayl

    Eric Winter & Roslyn(sp) Sanchez

  • Beatrixie

    I am inclined to say… Mario Lopez? With Extra (A show he host(ed?) )being the show that would make him their lead story, perhaps.

  • Run4Alz

    Josh Lucas

  • Ralphie

    Mario Lopez?

    Slated…played Slater on Saved by the bell. Hosts Extra.

  • ZuzuBee

    Mario Lopez! His one role is AC Slater from Saved by the Bell, and he hosts Extra.

  • MzTee

    Not sure about Macaulay Culkin – didn’t he and Mila Kunis break up this year? It’s not impossible to imagine he might be engaged to a new person already, but a bit unlikely.

    I noticed the blind repeats the phrase “lead story” twice. A clue?

  • The One and Only

    Justin Timberlake? Snl being the show that would make him the lead.

  • ladyweens

    Mario Lopez!

  • tamagotchi

    Jonathan Lipnicki

  • Juniper

    Matt LeBlanc?

    He was the first person that came to mind. Everyone knows him as Joey Tribbiani, but then hardly for any other roles after Friends. Then in Joey he still played Joey. And the most recent stuff he did Episodes he also plays a version of himself, which I though fits with the last sentence “there is one TV show that just might make him their lead story”.
    I think you can still consider him cute and gorgeous, and I definitely don’t think he is much of gossip worthy.
    And he has a long time girlfriend Andrea Anders (dated her since 2006 after his divorce from his wife).

    • msp96302

      this is a good guess.

    • afredorap

      I like this guess a lot!

    • Juniper

      Yes, Mario Lopez does make more sense now. I have been trying to make the “Slated” and “hard-pressed” work for Matt LeBlanc and it just didn’t quite fit. So I give it up to all the Mario Lopez guesses.

      Although I can name another of his roles… The Greg Louganis Story 😉

    • SheilaK

      EW. another one that is definately not gorgeous. Not that I have any guesses either!

  • malkatz

    I’ve got nothing. Is the TV show news-related, or fiction? Maybe something like the Colbert Report, which has both?

  • La Llorona

    Chris Pine?

  • cocoandhenry

    This kind of seems like Justin Timberlake but he’s not just an actor and I think people still care about him.

  • malkatz

    “Finally” makes me believe he’s been dating her for a long time. I’m not sure how we would know that, though, unless she’s also a celebrity.

  • leti2a

    Mario Lopez from extra & saved by the bell?

  • mplank

    Mario Lopez

  • kcphilly

    Mario Lopez…”slated” makes me thing of his character AC Slater on Saved By the Bell and just known for hosting now…and is the host of Extra, so they would be the ones to make him the lead story.

  • rosalee

    This is AC Slater- aka Mario Lopez!
    clues: slate, he hosts an entertainment talk show!

  • itsher

    Probably Mario Lopez. He is gorgeous and the only thing he is really popular and known for is A.C Slater from SBTB. I don’t think many people will care to follow other acting roles of his throughout the years, which why the blind says hard-pressed. I don’t think he is incredibly newsworthy either despite his reality show and being a TV host.

  • Tru Tru2

    hmmm, I wonder if its Justin, he’s acted on the big screen and its hard to remember in what…Jessica has been waiting for a ring thru all of his affairs and mishaps..

    but nothing about singing was mentioned or his supposed actress gf..

    this is tricky

    BG, I wanted a easy one for the beginning of the year.

  • malkatz

    Wait… I have a new theory: the girlfriend is a reporter for a television show. This is why there is one show that would report it.

  • malkatz

    Mario Lopez. HIS show would make it lead story, and he has a child with his girlfriend.

  • malkatz

    Mario Lopez. HIS show would make it lead story, and he has a child with his girlfriend. He is known for being A.C. Slater.

  • NeedNoStinkinBadges

    Is it pacey?? Not sure about the tv show reporting it tho. He and his gf are adorable.

  • ATXKitty

    Mario Lopez…Extra, Extra!!!

  • callmedave

    I think the key to this is the TV show that would do the deal. E! News perhaps? Surely not Ryan Seacrest..?! No, he’s plenty gossip-worthy. I’m stumped.

  • redrobot

    Mario Lopez! I guess he is “cute”. The blind says “extra cash” and he is on the show “EXTRA!” Also, it says “slated” and his character on Saved By The Bell is AC Slater. Can anyone name a role other than AC Slater?

  • rosalee

    M a r i o L o p e z!

  • caela94

    Jaleel AKA, Urkel grew up to be handsome,

  • caela94

    Jaleel White AKA Steve Urkel

  • Marissa

    Jon Hamm + Jennifer Westfeldt? I couldn’t see Jon Hamm wanting the press coverage, but you never know.

  • iocaine

    Mario Lopez. He was a host on Extra for a while.

  • pricey524

    AC Slater

  • chrysi321

    Mario Lopez? Really only known for Saved by the Bell. Currently works for Extra, so that show would report it. Girlfriend had his baby over a year ago.

  • ShennanigansOHoolihan

    David Arquette? Only role I know is Dewey from Scream

    • ShennanigansOHoolihan

      and his GF is that reporter that the creeper from Girls Gone Wild was married to for a hot second.

  • craptastic

    First time poster – love this site!

    I think it’s Mario Lopez.

    “slated” = his character Slater on Saved by the Bell.
    He is really only known for this role.
    He has been with his girlfriend since 2008.
    Only one show might feature him as a lead story : his own!!

  • InTheMix

    Totally agree with the Mario Lopez guess for everything stated above + “or gossip magazine will slip him a little EXTRA money for the exclusive.”

  • ShennanigansOHoolihan

    Oh nice guess. I was trying to get the “slate” connection too. I forgot that they weren’t married :) I think you’re right. Especially with the “finally” part after their baby and longish relationship (at least by Hollywood standards).

  • caela94

    Mario sounds good since he hosts a tabloid tv show.

  • Bromance1979

    Mario sounds like a really great guess. All the clues fit, especially the last part that one show will want to make him the lead story – Extra! Also “hard-pressed” – he’s ripped – and “slated” – AC Slater. He’s also definitely not “gossip-worthy enough” for a huge story. He’s been with his girlfriend and baby mama for 3-4 years, so it would make sense that he “finally got engaged”.

  • linds

    According to multiple news sites, Mario Lopez and Courtney became engaged in Sept. 2010 so I don’t think it’s him.

  • digitallyspeaking

    Didn’t Woody Harrelson just get engaged? Is this after the fact?
    “Everyone knows this cute actor” made me think of “Everybody knows your name” from Cheers.

  • ItsSoColdinTheD

    BG handed us this one * notice the word EXTRA , Mario is/was the host

    Maybe someone should remind his not so gorgeous GF that his last marriage ended after a week when his then wife found out he banged a stripper at his bachelor party

  • ItsSoColdinTheD

    Oh also
    Notice the word slated ( BG hint for Slater)

    This one was too easy ace!

  • ItsSoColdinTheD

    I hope he skips
    The bachelor party

    • LolaVee

      Hahaaaa! My thoughts exactly. Monogamy is not in the cards with this guy. Hopefully she understands that.

  • Jordan Joelle

    BG this was just solved. Go to Mario’s girlfriends FB page if you are subscribed.
