Maria Menounos is in headlines this week after celebrating her birthday with the Kardashians and then dishing some dirt on Jack Nicholson.
Menounos threw herself a birthday fete at her home last week and invited the reality-show family as well as Derek Hough, Julianne Hough, and Mel Gibson. The luau-themed celebration was prefaced with a pool-party, during which everyone got hammered on all-you-can-drink Patron.
“My pre pool party was so fun I am wasted am trying to get sober for my real party at 8!” she tweeted. “Over 50 people showering and getting ready in my house right now! So fun!”
The “Extra” host also visited Conan O’Brien this week and talked about her run-in with Jack Nicholson at a Lakers game.
“We made it our business, our second job, to go to all these games and really rally for our team,” she explained. “And all of a sudden — we’re courtside, I’m screaming, going crazy — I get booted! These guys come and pull us out! I’m like, ‘What is going on?'”
Apparently Nicholson is a die-hard Lakers fan and didn’t appreciate that Menounos was wearing the Boston Celtics’ signature green. Later, after bumping into him in the Chairman’s Lounge, Menounos realized what had happened.
“He’s like, ‘Heh, heh, heh, heh.’ And I thought really quickly and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, what if he…’ And he’s like, ‘I see they moved your seat.’ He got me kicked out! I heard later he called [late Lakers owner] Jerry Buss and had me removed!”
