Today, sexy Mario shows off his backside, crazy Sinead’s back with her ex, and much more!
*DILF-in-training Mario Lopez, 40, has a new line of underwear called RatedM.com. And he’d be happy if us gays turned it into the new 2(x)ist: “Gay fans are very loyal. And very cool… They’re the smartest and the hippest,” says Lopez (right). “They determine what’s hot out there.” If you want to see the Saved By the Bell veteran flex his abs (um, duh) check out the video at bottom.

*There are tons of LGBT contenders on the next season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, which is interesting given Donald Trump‘s lousy views on gay rights.

Hmm, is it illegal to discriminate against gays in the reality-TV workplace? [SheWired]

*Onetime lesbian Sinead O’Connor is actually not getting divorced from her drug-counselor husband, who she led on a search for weed/crack on their wedding night.

* Seems like Isaac Mizrahi got tired of designing all those wedding dresses and decided to get hitched himself. The 50-year-old married longtime boyfriend Arnold Germer at New York’s City Hall in November but just announced it on The Wendy Williams Show yesterday. ”In the end, I think maybe on the year anniversary, we’ll have a giant shindig,” Mizrahi said. “And yes, I will call Vera Wang and she will do my dress.” [OnTheRedCarpet.com]
