Dancing With The Stars participant and Extra correspondent Maria Menounos will be celebrating Cinco de Mayo in Las Vegas, where she’s helping Bud Light launch its new Lime-A-Rita in Sin City. Here’s what she had to say about the party she’s throwing and what she’s learned from her time on Dancing.

Menounos and her Dancing partner Derek Hough will be in Las Vegas today with Bud Light for the weekend introduction of the Lime-A-Rita, which is described as “an authentic margarita-flavored alcohol beverage with a splash of Bud Light Lime.”

To celebrate, they’ll be throwing a pool party with plenty of fun and games. For those of you in the area, you can get involved with the festivities by visiting the Bud Light Facebook page.

In addition to giving me the rundown on what’s happening today, Menounos also took some time out of her busy schedule to talk with me about which of her acting roles is her favorite, some of her other interests, and if she considers herself an actress or a host first.
