Steve Martorano, Mario Lopez to Collaborate on Docu-Soap
Remember the short-lived Kris Jenner Show? Whatever your personal review, one good thing came about as a result of the Kardashian matriarch's stint as a talk show host -- a bromance between Mario Lopez and Steve Martorano.
Lopez and Martorano hit it off during filming, with Lopez paying a visit to Martorano's flagship restaurant back in August.
Now, the duo are taking their friendship to the next level, by collaborating on a docu-soap based on the cook's colorful life.
Martorano, on the cusp of being a household name, has also announced he will begin filming season two of his online culinary show, Steve Martorano: The Italian-American Cook on November 9. The internet show will be filmed on location at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. The first season of the show, formerly known as Yo Cuz!, was filmed in 2011.
The show will feature the "Italian-American Cook" demonstrating culinary techniques in Martorano's own unique fashion. Believe us, you have never learned how to make a proper meatball until Martorano shows you how to make one.
The show will often host special guests including some of the cook's pals, which include basically every actor, musician, and athlete known to mankind.
