Maria Menounos Has A Holiday Whirlwind Romance With Brent Bailey in Lifetime's 'The Holiday Dating Guide'

Maria Menounos goes on an unusual date with Brent Bailey in this sneak peek pic from their Lifetime movie, The Holiday Dating Guide.

Here’s a summary of the movie: Dating coach and aspiring book author Abigale Slater (Menounos), is close to making her lifelong dream come true. She has completed her first book—a how-to guide for dating in today’s modern world—and is now more than ready to become a published author.

However, after reading the book, her publisher Jack won’t proceed with the deal without knowing that her dating advice actually works. Before he has a chance to say no, Abigale proposes that she prove the rules work by using them herself and making a man fall for her by Christmas Eve in 12 days.

Although Abigale’s never seen love as a priority for herself, she sets out to find someone who will fall quickly enough to get this book in print. Things change when Abigale meets Michael Ryan (Bailey), and her single-minded mission takes an unexpected turn.

While following her own advice, and learning to expect the unexpected in the process, Abigale discovers the romance of her dreams.

The Holiday Dating Guide will premiere tonight, December 17 at 8 p.m. on Lifetime.

Charlize Theron, Issa Rae, Margot Robbie & Dozens of Stars Step Out for THR's Women in Entertainment Gala - See Every Photo!

Charlize Theron, Issa Rae, and Margot Robbie were among the many stars who stepped out for The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment Breakfast Gala!

Many stars walked the red carpet for the annual event on Wednesday morning (December 7) at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

The annual breakfast coincided with the publication of The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Power 100 Women in Entertainment list, and celebrated the accomplishments of entertainment leaders and changemakers in Hollywood.

Charlize was honored with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award and Issa was recognized with the Equity in Entertainment Award.

Seth Rogen presented the award to Charlize and she said in her acceptance speech, “I take this leadership award less as a mark of accomplishment, but more as a challenge to keep doing the work. I want us to keep each other accountable, use each other as resources and push each other to keep using our voices and platforms for something greater than ourselves.”

Issa‘s Insecure co-star Yvonne Orji presented the award to her and said, “There are a few things you can bet that Issa Rae will always do…But what stands out most for me, is her unfailing support of the marginalized, her extreme selflessness, her dogged belief that everyone can win and people of color should have the same opportunity to fail and be given another chance at success—because that’s true equality.”

Maria Menounos Reveals That Her Mom Litsa Has Died From Brain Cancer

Maria Menounos shared some sad news with her fans this weekend – her mom, Litsa, has sadly passed away.

The 42-year-old television correspondent revealed the news on her social media pages with a tribute to her mother, who died after battling stage 4 brain cancer for more than four years.

“RIP mom. 💔 God loved her so much he took her on greek easter,” Maria wrote in her caption, alongside a heartbreaking image of her on the bed with her mom and hugging her close.

She also added “Christ is risen mom” in Greek.

Following the news, many celebs shared their condolences in the comments.

“We send you so much love. Our deepest condolences Maria,” Zoe Saldana wrote to her.

Nikki Bella added, “RIP ❤️ sending you and the fam so much love light and prayers. 🤍.”

Late last year, Maria opened up about her parents, and how they had both been hospitalized with COVID-19.

That update also revealed that Litsa‘s brain tumor had grown.

“Monday before Thanksgiving, my mom had her regular appointments at Cedars for her brain cancer. So she had her MRI, she had her infusions,” Maria shared at the time. “But we got some not-so-great news on Monday, I think that’s November 23, that my mom’s brain tumor was growing.”

However, Maria told People that she and her husband aren’t expecting just yet. “We are still in progress,” she says, “Not pregnant yet! That’s the plan, and we will share good news when we can.”

In an earlier episode of the show, Maria also shared that bringing up her future children helped her mother stay motivated during her health battles. She explained, “Yesterday, I said to her, ‘You gotta get strong, you gotta hang on — you’ve got grandchildren coming, and they might even be showing up…’ well, they’re definitely showing up next year.”

Both of Maria‘s parents were hospitalized with coronavirus in December – read what she had to say about their diagnosis here.

Maria Menounos Is Expecting Babies With Husband Keven Undergaro & Hints About A Move to Nashville

Maria Menounos has hinted that she’s expecting children with her husband, Keven Undergaro.

During her Better Together show, the 42-year-old television personality revealed that babies are on the way and that the couple are also entertaining a movie to Nashville.

“We are definitely entertaining this, by the way,” she shared about the move. “… It is beautiful, [and] we are going to have a family. We want to raise them somewhere where there will be kids next door to play with and you’re not afraid. L.A. just doesn’t have that.”

Maria added “especially in the kid phase of our lives, [I] want something different. … I think Nashville might be Mama Bear’s bed.”

This isn’t the first time Maria has talked about her and Keven‘s children. She did so in the December 15 episode as well, saying that grandkids were a key point in helping her mother through a health battle.

“The thing I keep saying to my mom is, ‘We’re going to get better every minute of every day, Mom. Every minute of every day we’re getting better and better.’ … That’s my mantra,” she shared. “Yesterday, I said to her, ‘You gotta get strong, you gotta hang on — you’ve got grandchildren coming, and they might even be showing up…’ well, they’re definitely showing up next year. I was gonna say around a certain time, but I won’t share yet because I don’t wanna — anyway!”

Maria revealed earlier in December that her mother and father both had been diagnosed with coronavirus.

Keven and Maria have been married since 2017, where they got married on New Year’s Eve in Times Square.
