Access Hollywood correspondent Maria Menounos spends most of her time reporting on entertainment news and chatting with celebrities. So she bear-hugged the opportunity to wrestle in a six diva match in October as part of a past WWE guest-hosting gig. (You can see it here.) The 31-year-old says the experience inspired her to take on more immersive, adventurous experiences. And so Maria's Madcap Adventure Series was born. Airing this week during Access, her Adventure segments include dancing with New Kids on the Block, singing with Justin Bieber, and impersonating Dolly Parton in Las Vegas. She even got to do play-by-play for her beloved Boston Celtics. Menounos spoke to TVGuide.com about a few of her adventures.

With only the live finale left in The Biggest Loser, the competition is fiercer than ever and the contestants are headed home for the remainder of their time. Before they hop on the plane, each of the four players rewatch their initial weigh-ins, interviews and the triumphs they've had along the way.
Upon arrival to their hometowns, Michael, Koli, Ashley and Daris each weigh in at the location of their first live weigh-in. What a feeling it must be to be in the same spot months later with such accomplishments under their belts this time. It isn't long before Alison pops up on-screen and alerts each of the four that their final challenge is going to be a full marathon where the winner receives $10,000 for the charity of their choice.
This week's One Tree Hill finale went out with a bang, literally, and all I can say as a devoted fan is we better get a Season 8 so we viewers get a nicely wrapped-up ending. But although one story line may leave us hanging, at least many of the other characters got happy endings.
From stalkers to crashes: Check out One Tree Hill's craziest moments
Haley, still extremely depressed about the death of her mother, jumps into her pool and stays below water until her husband pulls her back up. It's the last straw that leads her to finally speak to a therapist...
One Tree Hill
One Tree Hill is famous for taking standard soaps storylines and giving them outlandish twists. In honor of Monday's Season 7 finale, here's a look back at some of our favorite crazy moments.

Although Dan Scott (Paul Johansson) will forever be Tree Hill's greatest villain, we almost felt sorry for him when...
Can you believe it's already the last week at the Biggest Loser campus? Mike, Daris, Ashley, Koli and Sunshine remain, but only four will make it to the finale. Ali reveals that this week there will be no yellow line and no voting, but the person with the lowest percentage of weight will be sent packing...
On this episode of One Tree Hill, Haley distances herself from Nathan and Jamie as she grows more depressed. Meanwhile, Brooke views Julian's completed film, Clay realizes he can't ignore an unstable Katie, and Quinn and Jamie embark on a treasure hunt throughout town.
I'm currently on vacation, so I won't be able to post a full recap, but please use this space to discuss the episode!
Curious what your favorite Losties were up to before they got to that fateful island? Before we say goodbye to the ABC series on May 23, TV Guide Network is taking a look back at the lives and careers of Matthew Fox, Josh Holloway and Evangeline Lilly and other stars before they became famous.

Despite winning various Biggest Loser competitions and immunity challenges, Sam Poueu found it harder to avoid elimination as he went from 372 to 246 pounds. In Week 16, the 23-year-old Samoan only lost 2 pounds and was sent home, but remarked that he was the first contestant in the show's history to reach his goal weight on campus.

With O'Neal gone (tear), the players head back to SoCal to resume the competition. It's been 4 months, and the remaining 6 contestants have lost a whopping total of 805 pounds! So with that achievement, it's time for makeover week! I love seeing how each season's cast undergoes beatification to match their physical — and emotional —transformations.
Although this time around there's no Tim Gunn, it's still fun to watch each person put on clothes they never imagined wearing. But poor Michael still needs to shop at Big and Tall, all by himself. "Who loses 183 pounds and still can't fit into clothes?" he asks. Daris, meanwhile, lets celeb hair stylist Jonathan Anton chop off his locks, and the difference is immediate. As everyone goes to check themselves out, they're surprised by family members who have come to surprise them.
On this week's One Tree Hill, some couples finally formed while another called it quits. And while Nathan tried to remain supportive, his wife Haley kept falling deeper and deeper into depression and despair.
Although Haley tries to put on a brave face, it seems the jig is up when she acts complacent towards her husband and serves her son Chinese food for breakfast. She later shows up for her music video shoot but leaves before it even begins. When her manager Miranda gets ahold of her, Haley asks what the big deal is and says she's busy making soup. She then hangs up the phone and continues to agonize over perfecting her mother's famous recipe. When Jamie knocks over the bowl by accident, Haley flips out as Nathan watches his wife crumbling from afar. Haley later stars drinking and when she sits at her piano and drops her martini, she then decides to knock the candle over and let it go up in flames. When Nathan comes racing towards her and asks what happened she simply says, "I'm going to call my mom." Looks like Haley is in full-on denial and needs some help pronto.
