Menounos reveals brain tumour battle, quits E! News
NEW YORK — Maria Menounos says she has been diagnosed with a benign brain tumour and has announced her resignation from E! News. Menounos tells People magazine that she underwent surgery last month to remove a golf-ball-sized tumour discovered in February. Menounos says 99.9 per cent of the tumour was removed during the seven-hour procedure on June 8. She says there’s a small chance that it could come back.
E! says Monday that Menounos is leaving the network after three years. The cable network says it believes Menounos will tackle her health struggles “with the same fierce dedication she is known for.’’ Menounos is also caring for her mother, who has stagefour brain cancer.
