Maria Menounos (b. 1978) gained fame as the youngest correspondent on Entertainment Tonight. Since then she has guest-hosted a number of shows & played small roles in various movies.
In 2004, she met Kermit the Frog & Miss Piggy during the arrivals for the 56th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, on which occasion both ladies accidentally wore the same dress.
On Friday, October 13th 2006, Menounos met BIG BIRD who she interviewed for Access Hollywood to promote the DVD box set release of Old School: Volume 1. BIG BIRD was performed by MATT VOGEL, while the interview took place up on the roof deck of 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. Quite a few clips from the set were shown, including the original version of "Bein' GREEN". The interview aired a week later on October 20, 2006.
Menounos appeared on SESAME STREET to explain the word "senses" with OSCAR THE GROUCH in a Season 42 Word of the Day segment.
She also co-hosted the 2010 & 2011 Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade.
