Courtney began modeling at age three.
At six she was in her first musical.
She went on to star in Pittsburg with Ashley Judd and Jeff Goldblum and has appeared on several TV shows like The Expanding Universe Of Ashley Garcia.
‘I started taking dance class [at the time], went to a performing arts middle school, high school and college, and went to New York and pursued my dream [to be on Broadway],’ she told NUVOtv in May 2014.
Mario first met Courtney in 2008 while performing in the Broadway revival of A Chorus Line.
‘I was doing a six-month run on a show called A Chorus Line, and towards the last two months of the run, Courtney Mazza, this little Italian girl from Pittsburgh, came on the show,’ Mario told Access Hollywood in April 2020.
Mario played Zach, the show’s director, while Courtney was an understudy.
He showed his interest but she was lukewarm.
‘I saw her perform, and she sings and dances and [she’s] really talented which is very attractive, but she was not trying to give me any time or show me any love,’ he said in a 2017 YouTube video.
They set a date but it didn’t work.

‘I only had Mondays off. So, I would take the 6 o’clock flight on Sunday right after my matinee and rush to the airport,’ Courtney told Access Hollywood. ‘I wouldn’t get in bed until like 1:00 in the morning. And then we’d get up, I’d go to your show with you, and then I’d be in the car at 4:00 a.m. Tuesday morning to catch a 6:00 flight to be back [in New York] for my 7:00 p.m. show Tuesday night.’
Courtney then became a TV star.
She hosted the 2014 dance reality series Love & Salsa, which Mario executive produced. In 2020, Courtney appeared on the Netflix comedy series The Expanding Universe of Ashley Garcia, starring Mario, who was also co-creator and executive producer.
