Let's start off my saying everyone involved is okay!!
E!'s Maria Menounos was attacked by an unidentified aggressor early yesterday morning, while leaving a New York airport in her transpo car.
The scary encounter occurred when the host and her glam squad were attempting to get on the Van Wyck Expressway. After the ordeal was over, she shared details of the event:
"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!"

When they finally had the courage to look up, Maria realized her makeup artist was covered in glass and that gunfire wasn't involved — but rather, a tire wrench that caused the loud blow!
The Greek beauty believes someone either threw the metal rod out of a car or came up to smash, and ran away when they saw cops. She has no idea if her vehicle was targeted, or if the attacker was just planning on robbing them.
Like a true pro, Maria STILL drove into the city with a broken window and made all her scheduled appearances — despite being rattled!
Glad she's safe from it all!
