With our friends visit to L.A. coming to an end yesterday, we thought we'd give them a star-studded send-off courtesy of Mario Lopez shooting his Extra: Coast to Coast show on location at The Grove (actually we were doing some last minute shopping and a spot of lunch, but hey, celebrity bonus).

It's not the first time I've seen Mario Lopez in action, but the last time he had considerably less clothes on when he competed in the Malibu Triathlon at Zuma Beach in September 2009.

It's fun to see everyone so eager to be in the audience behind him while he interviews his guests. Maybe this is my big, and only, chance to be on TV.

Aside from me and other tourists snapping away there was the usual paparazzi on hand trying to get their pictures of the presenter and his celebrity guests. I got my snaps and left the dimpled TV host be.
Not only did we see Mario Lopez at The Grove, but we also spied British TV star Will Mellor from Hollyoaks, Casualty and Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps grabbing lunch with his family at Marmalade Cafe.

It's been something of a celebrity-fest this past week. I spotted Frasier's Kelsey Grammer shopping arm-in-arm with his new wife at the Caesars Palace Forum shops in Las Vegas on Thursday 7, April, then Matthew Morrison ('Will Schuester' in glee) was dining at the table next to us at Taste on Melrose on Tuesday night.
It's all just so Hollywood darling...
