Maria Menounos tries, fails to achieve 'cake pop sobriety'

Maria Menounos has fallen off the wagon — the cake pop wagon.

The TV host and "Chasing Maria Menounos" star told that she has a serious addiction to the bite-sized treats, declaring that she tried to quit eating them altogether.

But she wasn't able to quit. Menounos posted this photo to Twitter and Instagram last week, declaring she'd fallen "off the wagon."

Menounos said she made the decision to "go sober" when she found herself eating multiple cake pops a day, but when the cold weather in New York became too much to bear, she had to turn back to the tasty treat for comfort.
