In an interview with Howard Stern this Tuesday, Maria Menounos revealed that her doctors molested her on more than one occasion.
E! News reported that the Extra co-host and recent ‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant appeared on Stern’s Sirius XM show. Menounos alleged that male doctors touched her inappropriately during her medical examinations.
According to the 34-year-old Maria Menounos, the first incident took place when she was “really young.” She claimed to have visited a male doctor for a throat issue. The doctor asked her to change into a hospital gown- after which he touched her genitals.
“I was so uncomfortable,” Maria Menounous shared to Howard Stern. “I literally started screaming… I didn’t know what to do,” she said.
Menounos went on to say that other male doctors would compliment -and then touch- her navel ring during supposed medical examinations.
E! News reported that Howard Stern asked Maria Menounos if she ever reported any of these alleged molestation incidents to the police or took steps to file a lawsuit. Menounos said that she didn’t. However, she said that her boyfriend of 14 years, Kevin Undergaro, now accompanies her in the exam room to head off any more incidents.
(In fact, said boyfriend Kevin Undergaro was also with her during the interview with Howard Stern. Even the shock jock, it seemed, was under scrutiny.)
According to Howard Stern, his own wife -model Beth Ostrosky- was also molested by a male doctor. He noted that his wife, like Maria Menounos, also did not choose to press charges or call the cops.

‘Dancing With the Stars’ contestant Maria Menounos got to smooch her partner Derek Hough. Now she’s found a new kissing partner: Captain James T. Kirk himself.
The original Kirk, that is, and not Chris Pine from the 2009 J.J. Abrams remake of ‘Star Trek.’
CeleBuzz caught Maria Menounos, 33, puckering up with the ‘Star Trek’ legend William Shatner on the set of ‘Extra.’ The 81-year-old Canadian actor stopped by to promote his new book, ‘Get a Life!’, which takes a look at Trekkies, Trekkers, and the numerous conventions.
The friendly Menounos offered to show off her dance moves. William Shatner promptly did a Kirk by pulling her in for a smooch after their impromptu dance number. Maria Menounos didn’t look upset by the power move. Instead, she and William Shatner laughed hysterically as the actor told the camera, “That’s not the way I kiss.”
Speaking of power moves, Shatner’s fellow Canadian actor David James Elliot (of ‘JAG’ fame) also stopped by ‘Extra’ to show off.
The GCB star mainly talked about his work for charity ‘A Better LA.’ But David James Elliot also got to lay his hands on the lovely Menounos… through demonstrating various martial arts moves, such as a choke hold, on the blond ‘Extra’ host.
No worries for Maria Menounos, though. She has done a couple of spots of pro wrestling on World Wrestling Entertainment. She even wrestled once despite having two broken ribs from ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ which proves that dancing is also a contact sport.
