Maria Menounos predicts 'Dancing' winner

Wed, May 12

ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" is down to four celebrities -- ESPN personality Erin Andrews, football player Chad Ochocinco, Olympic figure skater Evan Lysacek and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger -- and Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos said it's a no-brainer who will win.

"It's going to be Nicole. It's what she does for a living," said Menounos, who stopped by the ESPN campus Tuesday. "Not to take away from anyone else … they all are incredible to learn these dance moves, but unless Nicole breaks a leg, the outcome seems pretty obvious to me."

Menounos, who was born in Bedford, Mass., and rocketed to stardom in movies and television, said, at this time, she wouldn't want to try dancing on the show.

"I'd have panic attacks. I can't walk and chew gum at the same time," said Menounos, who did play basketball in high school and is a huge sports fan. "I don't think I'm that graceful. I'm not going to set myself up for failure."

But Menounos does have an adventurous side. Next week on "Access Hollywood", she is providing five days of segments called "Maria's Madcap Adventures" where she tries different occupations.

"This is me trying my hand at the craziest things I could think of, wondering whether I can pull it off," she said. "Sometimes I will and sometimes I won't."

And it will allow her to achieve some of her million goals she has typed into her Blackberry.

"I want to be a WWE champion. I want to do UFC. I want to do roller derby. I want to be a ninja," said Menounos, staring at her phone. "I want to live life to the absolute fullest."
