Maria Menounos has opened up about some traumatic moments in her past.
The Medford-bred "Extra" host alleges that she was sexually abused by two physicians. In an interview with radio host Howard Stern, Menounos said during an appointment to check out a sore throat, a doctor began touching her genitals. During another visit, she said her gynecologist complimented her on her belly-button ring and started fondling it.
Menounos said that she has now developed a fear of doctors because of her experiences.
