There once was a time when future heart throbs were a little dorky, would-be supermodels a tad awkward, and even the Kardashians were just regular kids.

Heck, even Justin Bieber was a kid once ... instead of a punk a-- kid.

Ever wonder what your favorite stars (and Kim Kardashian for that matter) looked like long before they became the people that dominated your Facebook feed?

Wonder no longer, THGers. We've got you covered and then some!

Some aged better than others, and some certainly looked more like their adult selves from a very early stage, but all were pretty darn adorable.

Maria Menounos is ready to lace 'em up once again inside the WWE squared circle.

The Extra host was challenged on Twitter to team up with Natalya and compete on the SummerSlam pre-show this Sunday against the Bella Twins, an event that will take place outside Staples Center prior to the company's major pay-per-view that evening.

Menounos has made numerous appearances with WWE, debuting as a competitor in 2009 when she teamed with Kelly Kelly and Gail Kim to defeat Beth Phoenix, Rosa Mendes and Alicia Fox.

She also joined forces with Kelly for Wrestlemania XXVII last year.

Menounos competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2012 as well, but there's no truth to the rumor that her finishing move will be a paso doble.

The esteemed member of THG's 100 Hot Bodies of 2012 (at a vastly underrated #66) famously wore a bikini in Times Square after losing a Super Bowl bet.

You don't make bets like that if you aren't confident you'll look smoking hot if you lose ... unless you're just really overconfident, as Patriots fans tend to be.

Either way ... Extra sexy stuff, Maria.

She's typically all smiles when reporting for Extra or donning a bikini in Times Square.

But Maria Menounos admitted this morning on The Howard Stern Show that she's been hiding a dark secret: the beauty has been sexually abused by multiple doctors over the years.

"I was really young, so I was so uncomfortable," Menounos  said of the experience, which entailed a physician's visit over a throat issue, which led to the doctor touching her genitals. "[My boyfriend] Kevin was in the waiting room and I literally started screaming... I was just so uncomfortable I didn’t know what to do."

Maria then said other situations arose with male gynecologists when they complimented her belly button ring and then touched it. She now brings her boyfriend into all examinations.

Stern said his wife has actually shared similar stories with him. But, like Menounos, she refused to press charges when encouraged to do so.

With the competition down to the final two weeks, tension was running high on Dancing with the Stars, and seemed to overwhelm one top contestant.

A seemingly minor misstep at the end of a solid routine left Katherine Jenkins in tears. The question on every concerned viewer's mind was why?

Their salsa – their second routine of the night – saw the opera singer stumble, a mistake that barely resonated with the judges, but left her bawling on stage:

"That was just fantastic," said Carrie Ann Inaba, who awarded a nine. "I'm sorry at the end. But I just love seeing you push your boundaries."

The other judges also gave her nines, but with the finals a week away, the miscue left poor Jenkins in tears. "I'm sorry, Mark," she told her partner.

It was unclear what exactly caused the crying from Katherine - who also scored a 29 in her first dance, a quickstep - until later in the evening.

Afterward, she was heard saying, "I don't know what happened." She later Tweeted: "I'm with the Doctor, he says it was a reflectorical spasm in my lower back."

Nerves and pressure may have contributed to her tears, but no one realized at the time how much physical agony she was in. What a fighter.

In any event, she's still in this thing, as no more than three points separate all the contestants on a night that saw near perfection in the scoring.

"This is going to be the best semi-finals ever," proclaimed Len Goodman.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough may or may not be dating, but they're clearly a perfect match on Dancing With the Stars. They scored the season's first 30!

That's one way to top their on-stage kiss a few weeks ago.

Derek and Maria performed the paso doble and judges were in love with what she turned in, awarding a trio of 10s for the first time in this fun 14th season.

Carrie Ann Inaba joked "that dance sucked!" before remarking "You two were so on fire!" Bruno Tonioli, meanwhile, may still be having heart palpitations.

Check out the first-place pair's perfect paso doble below:

With their undeniable chemistry, Maria Menounos and Derek Hough sure know how to heat up Dancing With the Stars ... and the celebrity gossip rumor circuit.

The subject of much did-they-or-didn't-they-kiss speculation a couple of weeks ago and the continued target of dating rumors, there was no doubt this week.

Maria and Derek full-on locked lips during their salsa:

Although Bruno Tonioli asked if they needed a room and if he could join in (would you expect anything less?) Carrie Ann Inaba thought the kiss was too much.

"Dance is all about the illusion of passion," she chided the pair, who earned 27 out of a possible 30 points for the routine. "Don't go at it in front of everyone!"

Or do. Really, no one is complaining here at THG. And we thought Allure's pic of Maria Menounos nude would be her hottest moment of the week ...

Extra! Extra! Ogle all day over it: Maria Menounos is totally naked in this month's issue of Allure.

Granted, you can't see the TV personality's goodies, but you can see a lot more here than you even saw when Menounos donned a bikini in Times Square following the Super Bowl in February. She looks darn good.

But does she look better than Smash star Debra Messing, who also wears her birthday suit for the magazine? That's the question we pose below, as we ask readers:

  • Maria Menounos Nude
  • Debra Messing Nude

Which of these beauties would you rather see naked and in your bed? If you know what we mean!

 

NOTE: There is also a photo of Heidi Klum nude in this issue. But we couldn't include her in the poll because, come on. She'd garner every vote.

Maria Menounos and Derek Hough may not have turned in the best routine on Monday's Dancing With the Stars (Katherine Jenkins and William Levy both edged them on the scoreboard), or the most emotional (Donald Driver wins there).

Their rumba was hands down the steamiest, however.

Somewhere between rumba and racy, Maria and Derek ended up panting on the floor. The tandem may have shared more than choreography, or something:

It sure looked like they kissed, and let's face it, these two are a great fit for the obligatory DWTS dating rumor mill. Their physical chemistry is palpable.

Of course, Maria and Derek played it cool when chatting with Brooke Burke, opting not to answer the obvious question: Did they or didn't they kiss?

But will they stick around after tonight? That's a definite yes.
