Maria Menounos recently confessed on The Howard Stern Show that she was abused by two different doctors on two separate occasions. According to the NYDailyNews, she says she felt violated when she went to her doctor for a throat issue and he then touched her genitals and than on another occasion her male GYN complimented her belly ring and then began to play with it. What is wrong with people?
During a visit on Monday’s “The Howard Stern Show,” the “Extra” host revealed she’s been sexually abused by multiple physicians during past examinations.
The former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant said her phobia of doctors began when she visited a physician to treat a throat issue. She said the doctor had asked her to change into a hospital gown, and she felt paralyzed when he began to touch her genitals.
“I was really young, so I was so uncomfortable,” Menounos, 34, told Stern. “(My boyfriend) Kevin was in the waiting room and I literally started screaming … I was just so uncomfortable I didn’t know what to do.”
Menounos said her longtime beau had encouraged her to press charges against the doctor, however she didn’t want to make the issue any worse.
Sadly, the TV host said this wasn’t the only incident in which a male doctor had made her feel uncomfortable.
She revealed she had endured other medical examinations during which the doctors, including a male gynecologist, had complimented her belly button piercing before touching it.
Now, Menounos makes sure to bring her boyfriend into the examination room with her, especially if she’s getting a gynecological exam.
