“Extra” co-host Maria Menounos visited Howard Stern on Monday and shared her experiences with sexual abuse on his Sirius XM show. The recent “Dancing With the Stars” standout said she was touched inappropriately during multiple medical examinations. She said the first time occurred when she was “really young.” On one occasion, Menounos visited a male doctor for a throat issue. However, after asking her to change into a hospital gown, Menounos said he started touching her genitals. She recalled other times when male doctors complimented and then touched her navel ring during examinations.
The 34-year-old television presenter said she never reported any of the alleged incidents, but mentioned that she now brings her boyfriend of 14 years, Kevin Undergaro, into exam rooms with her.
