Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff Thankful for Trip to Mexico, Each Other

by at . Comments

During a weekend of relaxation and gratitude, Mario Lopez was glad he had a break.

It didn't hurt that he spent a few days at his sister's home in Houston and then Mexico with a certain dancing star.

"We're definitely overdue for a break," Lopez told People magazine about himself and possible girlfriend, Karina Smirnoff. "I want to take a little time off, go to Mexico."

By Sunday, the pair were there, taking south of the border by beautiful storm. And while Mario wouldn't confirm the dating rumors with Smirnoff, he did refer to their bond as "a very special relationship."


"It's very flattering when people want to see us together and like to see us be together," he said about the romantic sparks that viewers saw as the two twisted their way to a second-place finish this month on Dancing with the Stars. "We're great friends and very supportive of each other."

Channeling their inner Brangelina, Lopez and Smirnoff arrived in San Antonio on Friday night on behalf of the charity Any Baby Can, a non-profit organization that benefits severely disabled children.

For the record, we love this couple. The Hollywood Gossip would like to encourage Lopez to remain loyal to Smirnoff and avoid any more late nights with Britney Spears in Las Vegas.

Trust us, Mario, the former Mrs. Federline will play with your heart and get lost in the game.
