Maria Menounos is leaving the syndicated entertainment show “Extra,” Gossip Cop confirms.

Despite unfounded rumors of her being let go or fired, the host is leaving of her own accord to explore other opportunities.

In fact, ratings for the show have held up nicely since Menounos joined program.

An insider tells Gossip Cop the head honchos at “Extra” have been very gracious, and “did not stand in her way.”

Menounos is currently starring with her family on the Oxygen reality show, “Chasing Maria Menounos.”

A rep for Menounos was unreachable for comment.
