Mario Lopez Makes Karina Smirnoff Cry—on TV

Naked, wet emotion overcame poor Karina Smirnoff when she sat down to chat on Chelsea Handler’s E! talk show, Chelsea Lately.

The Dancing with the Stars coach unflinchingly faced questions about her recently ended relationship with Mario Lopez, but she choked back tears when Chelsea mentioned recent allegations that Lopez had been cheating on her for about a year with former Hooters calendar girl Meaghan Cooper.

“He told me he lived alone,” Cooper recently told E! Online, “but I opened up [his] closet and saw a row of women’s shoes and said, ‘Either you are a cross-dresser or a woman is living here.’ “

But it seems Karina had found out only days prior to the interview: “You know, I am okay now. I was little bit upset earlier.”

Chelsea obligingly ended the interview by telling the alleged cheater to “suck an egg, Mario.”

And that about sums up the general opinion on the self-absorbed, relationship-jumping wannabe panty model.
