Here’s some Entertainment Tonight gossip about Entertainment tonight. As we know, Mary Hart has decided to leave the show, but word just hit the street that 44 year old Nancy O’Dell, former host of Access Hollywood will be her replacement. That won’t be much of a change for her!
Heart had announced her departure this past summer, after 30 season on the show! Crazy – like an Oprah departure! Here’s what O’Dell, who has competed in Season 8 of Dancing With The Stars, said about her new position and Heart’s departure…
“I remember watching Entertainment Tonight when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show someday! It is the original and the gold standard of entertainment news shows. Needless to say, I am thrilled that my dream has come true. I have greatly admired the show and the incomparable and esteemed Mary Hart—her quiet power and professionalism are beyond admirable.”
I think she’s a great choice! She starts in January 2011!
