Hot bikini bod, indeed! While enjoying a little relaxation in Palm Springs over the weekend, Maria Menounos had a little fun playing photo shoot with a friend.

The Extra host, 34, posed seductively for the camera while lying on a diving board, clad in a string bikini. Menounos flaunted her toned figure by arching her back and allowing her head to dangle over the edge of the pool -- all while holding a glass of wine.

"My BFF Valerie Fatehi is playing photog with me in Palm Springs right now," she tweeted Saturday, March 2. "Life is good."

In another sexy shot, Menounos, who stars in the upcoming film Adventures of Serial Buddies, showed off her bronze bod while posing amongst the tropical scenery. "Shhhhh hiding in the bushes," the former Dancing With the Stars contestant captioned the shot.

How does Menounos stay in such great shape?

"I like to jog and I try to focus on floor-based Pilates to strengthen and lengthen," she previously told Us Weekly. "I'm not someone who carries any kind of serious routine. I try to keep a healthy attitude about it. I deal with whatever it is. The most I will do before a beach trip is run a few nights before."
