Ugh. People can be SO disgusting!
Maria Menounos was recently on the Howard Stern Show, and revealed that she's been sexually abused MULTIPLE times by doctors during past visits.
It's to the point where she doesn't go into examination rooms without her boyfriend.
Her phobia of doctors began when she visited a physician to treat a throat issue, when the doctor asked her to change into a hospital gown.
He then started to touch her genitals.
Here's what she said:
"I was really young, so I was so uncomfortable. (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."
Her boyfriend even encouraged her to press charges against the doctor, but she didn't want to make the issue any worse. We think she should have too!
That's not the only incident, though.
Other medical examinations involved the doctors complimenting her on her belly button piercing before touching it.
WHO IS LETTING THESE PEOPLE PRACTICE?
If for no other reason, Maria, pressing charges would make sure they don't do it to ANYONE ELSE.
We're so sorry this happened to you, and has happened to others!
