Mario Lopez may not be gracing the Bold and the Beautiful
set as Dr. Christian Ramirez any longer, but soap fans will get a good dose of him on June 15 during the Daytime Emmy Awards broadcast. It was just announced that Mario will be one of seven main presenters. (See Daytime Emmy Presenters Announced!
) Dare we hope that he presents an award to B&B
- nominated Lesli Kay (Felicia) for Outstanding Supporting Actress? It's been nearly a year since the dashing doctor brought Felicia back from the brink of death (and since Mario left the show), and it would be great to see them together again - if only long enough for him to hand her the well-deserved award!
