Maria Menounos And Dane Cook Were Kicked Out Of Their Lakers Seats By Jack Nicholson


If you thought that our NBA coverage today was going to deal with something as unimportant as the NBA Finals, you’re wrong. Instead, we’re looking westward towards Hollywood and The Staples Center for a story that happened in 2010.

But wait, before you get all “I’m clicking on another blog post,” did I mention that this story deals with Jack Nicholson, Maria Menounos and Dane Cook? OK then, I’ll continue.

Maria told this little anecdote on Conan last Monday, which US Magazine has been kind enough to turn into written word:

[Maria] and Dane Cook were sitting courtside at Game 6 of the Lakers vs. Celtics 2010 NBA Finals when security appeared and asked them to move. “We made it our business, our second job, to go to all these games and really rally for our team,” she explained. “And all of a sudden — we’re courtside, I’m screaming, going crazy — I get booted! These guys come and pull us out! I’m like, ‘What is going on?’” She and Cook later ended up in the Chairman’s Lounge, where they ran into Nicholson coming out of the bathroom. “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 heard later he called [late Lakers owner] Jerry Buss and had me removed!”

Go Jack! Who knew that you could simultaneously f*ck both Dane Cook and Maria Menounos at the same time?
