Maria Menounos dreads going into the exam room, and she has good reason.
Menounos said that the first incident happened years ago when she saw a doctor to have a sore throat check out. Once inside the exam room, Menounos said she was asked to change into a hospital gown, and the doctor began groping her.
“I was really young, so I was uncomfortable,” Menounos said. ”Kevin [Undergaro, her boyfriend of 14 years] was in the waiting room and I literally started screaming … I was just so uncomfortable I didn’t know what to do.”
Though Undergaro wanted her to press charges, Menounos said she decided not to because she didn’t want to make the situation worse. She found herself in a similar position during a gynecological exam. Menounos said her doctor told her he liked her belly-button piercing and then started touching it.
