What's in Her Bag?

Maria Menounos is used to chatting it up with celebs as host of Extra, so when the Greek-American bombshell escapes to the beach, she savors her "me time" under a wide-brimmed hat with a stack of magazines, a book, and an iPhone filled with her favorite tunes. But Menounos says she's always up for a game of football on the sand. "I play as many beach sports as I can," she says. "And then I pass out for a nap!"
