Maria Menounos Shows Off Bikini Body for Shape July 2012
The 34-year-old TV personality looked as hot as can be in a neon pink and orange Heidi Klein bikini for the Nino Munoz shot front page while dishing about everything from battling through physical injuries to her dad's diabetes diagnosis.
Highlights from Miss Menounos' interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Shape!
On her many physical injuries:
"Don't get me started on all of my injuries. First I broke two ribs, next I had three stress fractures on my left foot and two in my right, then I had some sort of tendon thing I don't understand, and I think I may have broken something in my hand. It was so bad, Derek [Hough, her partner on the show] had to give me piggyback rides everywhere."
On her father dealing with his diabetes diagnosis:
"My dad's very disciplined. More than 40 years ago, he was diagnosed with diabetes and told not to eat sugar. He never touched it again! He took his disease seriously, which is why he's so robust today."
On staying strong during her 'Dancing with the Stars' experience:
"No one will ever understand the pain I went through to stay in the running, but it was worth it. To learn how to dance and have shared this experience with all my fans and loved ones was truly magical. I didn't want my time on the show to end, but I'm thrilled and honored that I made it as far as I did."
