Elizabeth Taylorís Dating Secret Uncovered!
September 22, 2006

After eight marriages and 74 years of glorious bliss, screen legend Elizabeth Taylor still has some love to give!

"I’m not dead yet," she joked with "Extra" in a recent interview.

According to the new issue of People magazine, Liz has quietly been dating a wealthy divorcée for two years.

So who is the mystery man? People’s Jess Cagle sat down for a one on one with the legendary actress, but he said she’s remained tight lipped about her new love.

"Elizabeth herself is not commenting on that, and she certainly won't name names," Cagle dished.

Liz may not spill the beans, but for one Hollywood hottie, his body language is doing all the talking!

It’s the rumor rocking the "Dancing with the Stars" set: is Mario Lopez dating his partner Karina Smirnoff?

We caught a little spark between the two when they took a turn on the "Extra" set, and Mario even joked with us about their solid relationship.

"It's like newlyweds, you know?" he said. "She's getting mad at me, but then she loves me another minute."

While we spotted the smiling twosome stepping out in Burbank earlier this week, this Lopez-Smirnoff rumor is already kaput, as Mario told "Extra" it’s not true.

"I respect the teacher-student relationship; we're just friends," Lopez revealed Friday.

Across town, one A-list relationship is withstanding the good, the bad, the long and the short of things: 5-foot-2-inch Eva Longoria and her 6-foot-3-inch basketball beau Tony Parker.

But exactly how do Eva and Tony share a passionate kiss? Ellen DeGeneres got the lowdown on her show Friday.

"Does he squat from the knees?" Ellen joked.

"He leans down," Eva explained.

But Ellen wouldn’t hear of it, and she came up with a shoe-in solution: huge platforms.

We bet Tony will thank you for that, Ellen! And on Monday, Ellen asks Matthew Perry the big "D" question: "Who are you dating now?"

Hear all of Matt’s deepest confessions on Monday.

Meanwhile, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio after dark! "Extra" spotted the big screen heartthrob flying solo at the Armani show in London Thursday night.

But Leo hasn’t been lonely on his overseas vacation. "Extra" spotted him and model girlfriend Bar Rafaeli soaking up the sun and enjoying a boat ride in Big Ben.
