Maria Menounos's Adventures with Justin Bieber and NKOTB


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.

Nancy O'Dell Gives Us Full Access

Nancy O'Dell

The Access Hollywood host recalls highlights from 10 years of dishing with the stars.

I’m excited to celebrate 10 years on Access Hollywood. It feels like my baby because I’ve been here since Day 1.

In 2002, Halle Berry gave us the exclusiv read more
