The Italian tailor found himself covered in booze on last night's episode of The Only Way Is Marbella after Lucy chucked her drink over him following a heated row.
But chatting with fans on the official TOWIE Twitter afterwards, he remained good natured about the incident when asked if he felt he deserved it.
"Yeah, probably. It was for all the girls out there! GIRL POWER!" said Mario.
It all kicked off when Mario made a comment about Lucy having a one night stand with co-star Dan Osborne – which she denied, saying she'd only kissed him.
That all descended into a row about their relationship and what went wrong, which ended when Lucy threw her red wine all over Mario's face and white shirt. Ouch.
"I threw the shirt away," says Mario. "I was going to keep it as a memento though..."
During the chat, Mario told fans that he'd "always love and care for Lucy" but they were best going their separate ways.
He also denied he was dating model Beth just to make Lucy jealous, saying: "No, I'd never do that."
One fan also quizzed whether he'd felt just the slightest bit gutted when Lucy waltzed into last week's Marbella pool party in that sizzling white bikini.
"No, I wasn't gutted. Lucy looked beautiful," he said. "She always does. She's as beautiful as when we first met."
As for who he thinks is in the wrong when it comes to the Lucy drama, he replied: "Personally I think we're both to blame. It takes two to tango!"
