23Mario Lopez Is a Diva

Page Six has an interesting bit today about Diva Mario Lopez and his fellow co-star in Broadway’s A Chorus Line.

Last month, Mario Lopez and co-star Nick Adams clashed when Lopez refused to wear his character Zach’s trademark costume of a long-sleeve tan sweater. As first reported by The Post’s Michael Riedel, Lopez wanted to show off his biceps, so he wore a short-sleeve brown shirt in order to display his “guns.”

Lopez also requested that Adams, who plays assistant choreographer Larry, cover up his navy-blue tank top with a baggy hoodie whenever he danced next to Lopez. When Adams does wear just the tank top, it’s in the show’s opening dance number, where he’s banished to the back of the line and can barely be seen by the audience.


But now Nick Adams has his revenge: he’s beat Lopez out as the star of a new ad campaign for men’s underwear company 2(x)ist.

“Mario was originally No. 1 on our radar as we planned the campaign,” said an insider. “We were ready to call him with an offer, but then we saw Nick. He’s younger, sexy, more interesting. On top of that, his body was crazy. We set up a meeting, and when he walked in, that was it. We never even looked at anyone else after that.”

And says the company’s creative director:

“Nick’s very masculine, sexy, modern. It’s totally all about his body. Mario is a good-looking guy, but Nick had it. He’s up and coming, the new face of sexy. He’s original. He’s hot.”

Take that, Mario.

I’ve hated you since you cheated on Ali Landry at your bachelor party.

20Brace Yourself: MySpace’s Launching a New Site Design

I hate it when websites launch a “new site design.” It always means I’ll have to spend a full week trying to figure out how shit works again.

MySpace will be launching a completely redesigned site on Wednesday, June 18.

“This is more than a facelift; we’re changing the way people interact with the site and with brands,” said MySpace in a statement.

Just warnin’ ya.

I guess when you’ve been married for over a decade you take what you can get.

27Still Going Strong!

Wunder-couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith — who have been together for 57 years now — hit up the LA Lakers and Boston Celtics NBA Finals Game 4 in LA.

Okay, you wanna know something funny?

I had no idea the NBA finals were going on right now. And if you had told me, and you’d offered me $1000 to name just one of the teams who were playing, you would have left with all your money. And I’ve been living in Los Angeles for the past five years.

See, this is what happens when you’re single forever. When I had a boyfriend, I knew these things.

28Adriana Lima Is Off the Market

Gentlemen (and ladies, I suppose), it’s time to put those Adriana Lima fantasies to rest.

The supermodel got engaged to her basketball star boyfriend, Marko Jaric, on Thursday night — Adriana’s birthday — says Jaric’s publicist.

“He asked and she said yes. They are both incredibly happy and couldn’t be more in love,” says publicist James Weir.

Damn. They got that statement out, like, seconds after the actual engagement happened. Impressive, kids.
