Maria Menounos in a known lover of all-things Boston sports, which is fine as long as you don’t do it on Jack Nicholson’s turf. The legendary Lakers fan had the ‘Extra’ co-host booted from her court-side seats during the 2010 NBA Finals for rooting too vociferously for the Celtics. “I am wearing my Celtics gear, I am screaming, going crazy and I get booted. These guys come and pull off us out of courtside. What is going on?” Menounos, who was at the game with comedian Dane Cook, said on “Conan” this week.

Menounos said she was clueless as to what happened until she ran into Nicholson at the lounge area she had been escorted to following her ejection. “We ended up in the Chairman’s Lounge at halftime. I’m hiding in this hallway. All of a sudden Jack Nicholson comes out of the bathroom, and he’s like, ‘Heh, heh, heh, heh.’ And I thought really quickly and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, what if he…’ and he’s like, ‘I see they moved your seat.’ He got me kicked out! I called later I found out he called Jerry Buss and he had me removed,” Menounos said.
Maria Menounos is a Boston Celtics fan, who likes attending games wearing her greenest jersey and heckling opposing players to “shift us into winning.” This earned her the attention of Los Angeles Lakers superfan Jack Nicholson, who jokingly had her removed from courtside seats at the Staples Center during the 2010 NBA Finals. She told the tale on Conan. The story starts out, “Dane Cook and I were sitting courtside,” but don’t let that deter you from listening to the rest.
