Maria Menounos Sexually Abused By Two Doctors
During a candid interview with Howard Stern for his Sirius satellite radio show on Monday, "Extra" host Maria Menounos revealed that she has a strong fear of doctors - and not for the usual reasons such as needles or getting back test results - but because she's had more than one of them touch her in a sexual way.
The Dancing With The Stars finalist told Stern that one time during a visit to a physician the doc asked her to change into a hospital gown, and then started to fondle her private parts when he returned to the exam room-- while she was there for a throat ailment.
Maria, who was joined by boyfriend of 14 years Kevin Undargaro, tells Stern, "I was really young, so I was so uncomfortable. Kevin was in the waiting room and I literally started screaming...
"I was just so uncomfortable I didn't know what to do."
And the incident wasn't the only time it's happened to her in the past - she also shared a story of a former gynecologist who once touched and compliment her belly-button piercing, something she found a little awkward.
She says she now takes her boyfriend into the exam room with her during all of her doctor's visits.
On a lighter not, aside from the stories of sexual abuse & harassment, Maria and Kevin were grilled by the America's Got Talent judge on his favorite subject: sex.
Stern, naturally, asked for details about the couple's sex life and got Kevin to share one of the couple's intimate secrets - that Maria likes to be choked whenever she has an orgasm.
Stern also inquired as to whether or not anything happened between Maria and her Dancing With The Stars partner Derek Hough, but she said that although the two remain friends, nothing happened.
And if anything did, Kevin doesn't want to know about it.
"You know what, Howard? I just put my mind on other things," he said. "It’s A: I trust Maria, and B: what can I do?"
