"He's an icon, he's the most famous cover model ever so why not... and because I write romance novels," said Kris Tualla.

Long lines of people waiting to talk to the handsome Italian model, not a bad turnout for someone who never had a starring role in a movie. But this instantly recognizable man has done a lot of TV and plenty of commercials.

"Phoenix was one of my first cities I visited in the United States and I love it" said Fabio. Fabio was speaking at whole foods in phoenix today.. Selling his new whey protein.  He's passionate about healthy eating! "Mine is real whey... the most powerful protein in mother nature most of the people don't know what real whey is," he said.
