Maria Menounos’ Car is Attacked

NEW YORK – It’s been an eventful year for Maria Menounos. In the spring she left the syndicated entertainment newsmagazine Extra and signed a deal with E! On Wednesday night, October 15, her car was attacked as she and her colleagues were leaving JFK airport in New York.
Menounos told US Weekly that she heard a loud noise that sounded like gunfire,”
“We were merging onto the expressway and all of a sudden we heard an explosion. I thought we were being shot at so I told everyone, ‘We’re being shot at! Put your heads down!’ And everyone put their heads down..we waited a second and we didn’t hear another shot, so I lifted my head up and turned around, and the whole back window was shattered and gone, not even a stitch of glass was left.”

Someone had thrown an iron tire wrench through the rear window. Menounos was sitting in the front seat, and was unharmed.
“So either someone ran back and smashed the back of the window and ran and nobody saw (them), or someone was in close proximity and threw it through the back window. Either way, my makeup artist was in the back seat covered in glass,” she said.
‘It really felt like something out of a movie. I heard an explosion and I started screaming, ”Everyone down, we’re being shot at. Everyone down!,’” she told the Daily Mail.

Menounos later posted on Instagram that the group in her car was “freaked out,” US Weekly reported.
