[Blind Gossip] Mario Lopez has written an autobiography titled Just Between Us. He will be teasing some of the book’s highlights on today’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
First interesting story: His family used to smuggle illegal immigrants from Mexico to the United States for money. “My dad did what he had to do to take care of us. Often times when we’d take little trips across the border — and this was obviously pre-9/11 — we’d come back [to the United States] right away. He’d pull over and he’d open the trunk and sometimes people would come out.”
Second interesting story: Mario Lopez had a fling with a major pop star in Las Vegas six or seven years ago. He did not say if she was performing there or if she was just visiting there. The two are still friendly. He would not admit if he had interviewed the unnamed singer in the years since they slept together, and he would not give her name.
“Out of respect for my wife… I don’t want to drop names.” Then he and Ellen jokingly ran through a list of names.
Who do you think it was?
Pop Star: Britney Spears

Mario Lopez and Britney Spears had a one-night stand! From Us Weekly:
Mario Lopez’s One-Night Stand With “Mega Pop Star” Revealed:
It Was Britney Spears!
He got a piece of this pop star! After Mario Lopez revealed in his memoir Just Between Us that he had a one-night stand with an unnamed “mega pop star,” multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly that the celebrity was none other than Britney Spears.
According to Lopez, 41, the rendezvous occurred many years ago in Las Vegas. “I’m trying not to give too much away without giving too much away,” the scribe told Ellen DeGeneres on Oct. 2. “It was maybe six or seven years ago… eight years ago?”
At the time of their hookup, both Spears and Lopez were single. The pop princess, 32, split from husband Kevin Federline in 2006, while Lopez was on a break with then-girlfriend Karina Smirnoff from 2006 to 2008. The ’90s teen heartthrob was several years out from his brief and failed marriage to model Ali Landry.
The Extra host also told DeGeneres that he and the newly revealed mystery lady still remain “friendly.” In December 2013, Lopez joined Spears onstage for the opening night of her Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me.
