First of all, it sucks that we don’t get to see Maria Menounos working these pages as often as she used to when she was still on ‘Extra.’ We can all thank Mario Lopez and his dimples for getting Maria booted from the show (probably because she refused to bang him on the side). If only more dudes watched the show, the producers wouldn’t have given into Mario so easily.
Getting back to the film at hand, we should mention that aside from the cute minions, Sandra Bullock is the main star of the latest film in the ‘Despicable Me’ series. This film is supposed to be a prequel/spin-off. Sandra portrays Scarlet Overkill, who is apparently “a stylish and ambitious villain determined– to dominate the world and become the first female super-villain.” (Wiki)
The big premiere event was held earlier today at the Odeon Leicester Square in London.

Aside from Maria Menounos & Elsa Pataky, nearly everyone was wearing low-cut dresses at the red carpet premiere of ‘Furious 7,’ which went down last night at the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Even though it was mostly a celebratory occasion, the mixed emotions flowed freely with the late Paul Walker still on everyone’s mind. Having said that, I still feel like there are plenty more ‘Fast & Furious’ films set to drop in the coming years and probably all of them will have Paul Walker flashbacks.
The film goes into wide-release tomorrow, April 3rd.
More about the film:

The 35-year-old beauty is currently making the rounds promoting her second book, ‘The EveryGirl’s Guide To Diet And Fitness’, which discussing how she apparently lost 40 pounds and went from a size 14 to a size two. I guess this must have been a long, long time ago because I’ve never seen a fat Maria on TV.
For those of you who missed the news, soon after Maria’s next big gig will be with the E! network, where she signed a multi-year deal to host a new one-hour entertainment news series called ‘Untold with Maria Menounos’.

The deliciously sexy Eiza Gonzalez was showing off her amazing legs as she hit up a promo interview for her new horror series ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ with co-star & Hollywood pimpdaddy Wilmer Valderrama. The two chatted it up with Maria Menounos during their segment on the show.
Robert Rodriguez, the series creator and producer, premiered the show on his recently launched El Rey network back on March 11. The series must have done pretty well because it’s already renewed for a 13-episode second season, so congrats to everyone involved. Here’s some plot action for those of you can force your eyes to off of Eiza:
In this supernatural crime series, Seth Gecko and his violent, unpredictable brother, Richard “Richie” Gecko, are wanted by the FBI and Texas Ranger Freddie Gonzalez after a bank robbery left several people, including policemen and Gonzalez’s mentor Texas Ranger Earl McGraw, dead. Heading for the Mexico border pursued by Gonzalez, the Geckos encounter former minister Jacob Fuller and his family, whom they take hostage by commandeering the Fuller’s RV. Drug lord Don Carlos reroutes them to a strip club populated by vampires that all must fight until dawn in order to survive. Source
