Maria Menounos revealed two major life events on Monday: She's leaving E! and she's recovering from brain tumor surgery in June.
"I am so grateful for the past three years at E!. I had such an amazing time co-hosting with Jason Kennedy and working everyday with the wonderful roster of talent on the show including producers, staff and crew. It was such a special, good-hearted group and one I'll always consider family," the TV personality said in a statement to E! News. "I will truly miss everyone and looking forward to this next chapter in my life."
To top it all off, her mother is also currently battling stage four brain cancer.
"Our thoughts and support go out to Maria and her family and we wish them all the best knowing that Maria will tackle this with the same fierce dedication she is known for," Adam Stotsky, President of E! Entertainment, said. "We are grateful for Maria's many contributions to E! over the past three years."
People reported the details of Menounos' seven-hour surgery at the hands of Dr. Keith L. Black, who believes his team was able to remove 99.9 percent of the tumor during the operation on June 8 -- Menounos' 39th birthday.
"He said there's a six to seven percent chance that we'll see it come back," she said. "But I'll take those odds any day."
"My face is still numb. This is something that takes at least a month of healing, but I'm getting stronger and stronger every day and I'll be back to normal very soon," she added.
Menounos said she is leaving E! to focus on her own health, as well as her mother's, while also taking time to "focus on some passion projects and see what's next."
"I just want to be still for a bit and see what I'm supposed to be in this world," she said. "For me, sharing this story is important on so many levels. I hate secrets. I also want to help women realize that they have to put themselves first. I wouldn't have ever known or imagined that this was going on if I hadn't seen the symptoms in my mom. I want to encourage people to find some stillness in their life so they can listen to their bodies—and hear what's going on."
