Depending on what you read, Medford’s Maria Menounos is either leaving her gig hosting the entertainment show “Extra,” or she’s being asked to leave. The New York Post’s Page Six claims that Menounos’s contract won’t be renewed in part because of tension with her cohost, Mario Lopez. But Us Weekly reports that the TV personality is choosing to move on to try new things. Menounos (inset) recently played herself on Mindy Kaling’s “The Mindy Project.” Menounos also has a new reality series on Oxygen called “Chasing Maria Menounos” which features her parents and her beau, Keven Undergaro.
