Maria Menounos Fired From Extra

It looks like Mario Lopez will get a chance to find some other woman to hit on at work. Mario, who has not much luck with Maria Menounos managed to make sure her contract was not renewed. Maria, who probably thinks she has hit the big time with her own reality show is going to discover really quickly that you need a day job to go with the reality job or all you do is film someone sitting around at their house whining about not working. Considering there a million women out there doing Maria's job and for a whole lot less money, she will probably end up doing infomercials. Mario wanted Maria gone and according to The NY Post, he got his way. His people tried to paint the picture that Maria is a diva. All I can say is I hope the new person doesn't fall for the Mario tutorial sessions he likes to offer.

Hard to believe he has that much power

Good, she's the Ann Curry of tabloid TV shows. In other words, awful.

MollyMo said...

I have always liked her because she wasn't always a perfect size and who can't relate to that? I also think it shows she has some self respect and confidence to not sleep with a creep like Mario just to stay in the game. She has some personality on her own and I'm sure she will find other professional opportunities.

I dont get marios appeal. Hes cute but not much else going on there. Dont know much about this maria m, but those are all idiot jobs anyway.

Renoblondee said...

I like her too. She was great on DWTS.

Dolphy said...

She's ok, but I cannot stand her laugh. Mario is an ass.

Derek Harvey said...

I like her. She is very pretty and not annoying like the rest of em. I can't stand that Roxy chick on Entertainment Tonight. One episode I saw she was discussing her past eating disorder and the next day she was calling Lena Dunham fat SMH!

bellaluna said...

Mario was a self - absorbed twat in high school and he's only gotten worse since.

Sherry said...

Morning Derek!!! I have no Moonshine hangover and didn't puke on myself in public last night. How about you?

Luckily I was called away to make a fabulous gourmet dinner and then watch some PBS(please don't think I'm a snob.)

I think Maria is very pretty. Haven't seen her do anything so cannot attest to her talent.

Harry Knuckles said...

There have been some blinds suggesting Maria is no stranger to the casting couch, and that she doesn't waste her time and her cooch on directors and producers but rather goes right to the head of the network or production house. Nails the top dog. If Maria's lost a job thanks to Mario, and that's kind of hard to believe for a couple of reasons, then she'll just fuck her way into another one.

Derek Harvey said...

Hey Sherry---no I decided to save it for a rainy day. PBS?! I was watchen Lindsay!

B626 said...

I hate her laugh too, but strangely look forward to it.
I hope she succeeds so she can flip Mario the bird!

Anna Belle said...

She must of pissed off the network head...cuz yes she gets around...got what she wanted & wouldn't do him anymore?

rajahcat said...

she does have the most annoying laugh-see Howard Stern's birthday party........but the best hair

don't really like either of them......vacuous both

did Maria not submit to the Mario training session then?

violet said...

I love Maria Menounous. Didn't know about her casting couch past. I DO NOT like Mario Lopez, he is the definition of sleazy.

S said...

Hasn't she been fired from all of her on-air jobs?

There's always Inside Edition, Maria.

I like Maria for openly talking about freezing her eggs in her early 30s. It opened up the eyes of a lot of single 30 year old woman that maybe they should do this. Dr oz had a show 1 week later about women in their 40 s and over who never thought to do it. And we're focused on career or just didn't find the One. And they waited to long to have bio babies. They were so sad they were crying saying they wish someone had told them in their 30s to freeze their eggs just in case. For That I Will Always Love her.

Sherry said...

Oh D- NOT Lindsay!

Derek Harvey said...

@Sherry---it was a good one! Oprah told her off..

sandybrook said...

E! will be happy to have her. She wont be unemployed very long.

ms snarky said...

He is such a d-creep. I like her.

Tina Mallette said...

I would fire Lopez he is a sexual harassment law suit waiting to happen I like Maria too.

Tara said...

I like her - she interviewed me for Extra once and I had a good experience with her. She seemed polite and (granted we were in front of people) hassle-free. I also think her childhood story is interesting (immigrant parents, came from a poor background) and she was quite brave to talk about her sexual abuse. Plus, unless there's a blind, she's been with the same outside-Hollywood guy for a decade. She seems alright. E! would be lucky to have her - I'll take anything over Giuliana's horrid interview questions.

urg8urg said...

Hate Mario. He's a greasy douche canoe.

timebob said...

She has a boyfriend for decades now, but she fully supports him financially. He basically just travels all over the world with her and acts as an assistant and keeps out of her limelight.

D Brown said...

Is it just me but up until 2-3 years ago I had never heard of Maria M. Then she started getting photographed everywhere. My assumption was that she was working with the paparazzi. Same thing with this Emmy Rossum.

Count Jerkula said...

I hope she gets broke enough to do nude work. I saw her labia slip pics, I'd like to view the rest.

JoElla said...

I have a feeling Maria will be alright.

Besides does anyone actually watch those shows anymore?!

clearly4you said...

I like her too. She comes off as friendly, happy and a little goofy (in a good way). She is also extremely pretty and I wish I looked like her! I can't imagine she will have trouble finding another job. Their loss.

LeeLee D. said...

Lmao! Too funny.

Malibu Borebee said...

Menounos and Lopez are flip sides of the same coin. Too bad they'll be inflicted on other people now.

Cee Kay said...

@Molly if Maria isn't "a perfect size", who the hell is?

Renoblondee said...

@Cee She was talking about how Maria was big in college and talks about that. Not now.

Moxie Girl said...

I've worked with her a few times over the years and was invited to several parties at her house She's very nice and down to earth. No pretensions with her. Mario is a slimey man-whore. There must be a lot of older ladies who find him dreamy as they are the only ones watching those shows now.

evie2345 said...

He 's so skeevy. How he has a career is beyond me.
I think Maria has a production company and other aspects to her career. She seems ambitious and hard-working so I'm sure she will be fine

Henriette said...

She's a bit annoying, but not dreadfully so. She would be a great host for Wild On! on E, if it's still on E.

Feed Watcher said...

Maria owns the AfterBuzz podcast company (or however it is structured) and gave her boyfriend Kevin a job running it (or whatever his role is).

Does AfterBuzz make any money?

I guess the answer to that will decide how hard Maria needs to work now.

car54 said...

When is her contract up? I'm watching Extra right now and she's on it right now with Mario.

Enty, they talked about your L'Wren Scott BI on Extra saying a gossip site had a blind item predicting her death. They did a story about her funeral and talked about your post.

cowbulls said...

Maria has an incredible body with one of the best a$$es in Hollywood. She will find work. Mario is a slime ball.

di butler said...

I've never actually seen her on tv, but I know that she has a rep as being down to Earth and genuinely nice. That's all I've ever heard.
