Maria Menounos wears many hats.
She's a journalist, TV presenter, actress, occasional professional wrestler — and now the star of her very own reality show, Chasing Maria Menounos, airing on Oxygen.
The series follows Maria's chaotic work life, as the 35-year-old juggles living with her parents (yep, you read that right!) and boyfriend of 16 years, director and producer Kevin Undergaro.
While at the launch of the new Suave Professionals® Natural Infusion collection and partnership with GLAM4Good in NYC Tuesday, Life & Style chased Maria and grabbed her to ask 10 quick and fun questions. And what she revealed is pretty fabulous.
Check it out:
Cake pops. They're waiting for me right over there!
Biggest Hollywood crush?
Sandra Bullock. I want to hang out with Sandy.
What would you be doing if you weren't a TV host?
I'd probably be doing something else in the entertainment industry, but if I wasn't in the industry, I'd be working with animals.
Worst red carpet moment you ever had?
With Miss Piggy [at the 2004 Emmys] when I worked for Entertainment Tonight. I wore a tutu and it was awful. I was shooting One Tree Hill at the time and I didn't have time to do a fitting. I was like, 'yeah, that will do!' It's one of my biggest fashion disasters.
Speaking of One Tree Hill, what's your favorite memory on set?
Eating ice cream in Wilmington, N.C. [where the show filmed]. It's so beautiful there. I had the best time. It's such a nice place. Everyone was so sweet — the cast, crew, and people of Wilmington.
One thing you like about yourself?
I'm pretty giving. It's better to be that way than not.
One thing you dislike about yourself?
I hate when I'm a complainer — like when I'm tired, I drive myself crazy.
Favorite TV show?
Obviously Breaking Bad. Now I have a multitude of favorites, so it'd be difficult to narrow down to one.
The Wizard of Oz and Rocky. I'm dying to see that on Broadway!
Do you have any hidden talents?
When I was Miss Massachusetts Teen USA, I said I can belch louder than any of my male cousins. Since I've become a lady, I don't do that anymore cause my dad will kill me. But secretly behind doors…
