Celebrity dad and host of ‘Extra‘, Mario Lopez sat down at Rachael Ray’s table to chat about the holidays, his NYC marathon experience, and to dish on his new book. The full interview airs on the Rachael Ray Show tomorrow, November 18th.
Mario shares a little about his upcoming book:
“I wrote it as a gift to my daughter who just turned one, Gia. And in the book I wanted all of the characters to be children. You know they’re funny and we wanted all of the characters to be children. I want to encourage kids to use a little of their imagination, flex their creative muscle. Get a little spanglish going in their too.”
On running the NY marathon:
“I’ve run three, I’ve done Triathalons, but this one was so cool because I’m from CA. I don’t really get a chance to get out in Manhattan when I am here. I really got to see NY. I was visiting people and like I said, there were bands and I was doing Salsa in the Bronx . ”
On his Thanksgiving plans:
“And a lot of it you know, I’m a foodie. As for Thanksgiving plans, you know my sister is the Mexican Rachael Ray and so she does this with 4 kids, this amazing dinner. She lives in Texas , so we all go there for Thanksgiving.”
