Maria Menounos Honored Her Super Bowl Bet in a Giants Way


F&TS strives to maintain the highest level of journalistic standards of objectivity possible. But our head writer is also a huge sports fan. He is a proud New York Giants fan and one of the best memories is Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5, 2012. The New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 21-17. All of New York City was thrilled with the victory, except maybe lifelong Patriots fan and host of Extra, Maria Menounos. The Bedford, Massachusetts native bet that she would get into a New York Giants bikini in the cold weather of Times Square if the Patriots lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. Well on the day after the Giants Super Bowl victory, Maria Menounos honored her bet in a New York Giants way.

People Magazine selected her as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People,” in 2004 and if you can imagine, she looks even better now. The Greek Goddess is also an author, who wrote “The Everygirl’s Guide to Life.” The book includes tips for obtaining happiness and success in one’s personal and professional life. Menounos wrote, “I think [being] organized is the key to happiness. My life is so much easier, and I can tackle so many more projects and that’s why I can do as much as I do in a day. When you’re organized, you’re happy. When your house is messy, your mind is messy.” Great advice Maria, thanks.
