Maria Menounos' car attacked while she was in it Published October 17, 2014 Maria Menounos had a frightening moment on Wednesday as she was leaving New York's JFK airport in a car. She suddenly heard a loud noise that sounded like gunfire, she told Us Weekly. "We were merging onto the expressway and all of a sudden we heard an explosion. I thought we were being shot at so I told everyone, 'We’re being shot at! Put your heads down!' And everyone put their heads down," she told Us weekly. "We waited a second and we didn’t hear another shot, so I lifted my head up and turned around, and the whole back window was shattered and gone, not even a stitch of glass was left." She said someone had thrown an iron bar through the window. The “Extra” host, who was sitting in the front seat, was unharmed. “So either someone ran back and smashed the back of the window and ran and nobody saw (them), or someone was in close proximity and threw it through the back window. Either way, my makeup artist was in the back seat covered in glass,” she said. No one was hurt in the incident, E! News reported. Menounos later posted on Instagram that the group in her car was "freaked out."
