Over Here, Mario!Mario Lopez was like a fly darting around after Tuesday night's show. While chatting with PEOPLE, he jetted over mid-sentence to talk to a friend. His small-but-mighty partner Karina Smirnoff took control and yanked him back to her side. "We are still talking here," she reminded him. A contrite Lopez apologized and flashed his dimples. "Oh, I'm so sorry. Where were we?"
Rumor has it that there's chemistry off the dance floor between Lopez (whose pals George Lopez and José Canseco cheered him on in the audience) and Smirnoff. So, what's the real deal? "Oh no, I'm single," he told PEOPLE. "Available. Not really looking. When it happens it happens."
All Aboard the Love ChainDuring the commercial break that followed Harry Hamlin's dance on Tuesday, he hit the craft-service table and loaded up on Reese's Pieces. Wife Lisa Rinna rushed over to him and gave him a big hug and whispered in his ear. Hamlin's overheard reply? "I told you we were going to be okay."
