"Entertainment Tonight" has announced that Nancy O'Dell will take over the throne when Mary Hart ends her 30-year reign as the celebrity news program's co-host in 2011.
“I remember watching 'Entertainment Tonight' when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show someday!" O'Dell said in a statement. "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 am honored to be the one chosen to fill a TV legend's seat and I hope I can ‘do her proud!"
Beginning in January, O'Dell will ease into her "ET" duties as a special correspondent and substitute co-anchor for the show before taking over for Hart at the end of the season.
"Leaving this job was not an easy decision, but knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier," says Hart, who joined "ET" in 1982 and announced her retirement in August. "Nancy is a talented and respected entertainment correspondent. We have spent many years working on opposite sides of the celebrity battlefield; I look forward to now working together, and I know the show will flourish with Nancy as co-anchor.”
Nancy odell replaces mary hart on et.. May I repost it? :)
oh no,what happened to that pretty face ... why can't celebs just age gracefully ?
Congratulations to Nancy & Best Wishes to Mary. Two classy ladies !
I love Nancy! Such a great TV host. I look forward to watching her on ET. So glad they picked her!
Nancy O'Dell was the right choice for ET. No doubt about it. Beautiful inside and out! Nancy...I'm looking forward to seeing you on TV every night again. Congrats to you!
WHAT A PIECE OF ASS11111
A younger plastic surgery hag replacing the older one.
I bet she is glad she does not have to work with that duche Billy Bush anymore
Mary – one who improves with age as with most worthy things are.
Another celeb that went under the knife – anyone else notice how it doesn't look like her? Even more obvious on her website!
Nancy is a talented beauty, and Mary Hart is always fresh and a pleasure. I watched her in the beginning and still enjoy her. Good luck to them both.
But I gave up on ET when it decided the tabloid trash and crime stories were the best lead it could have. OJ kicked it off, and since then it has been worse and worse. Last night, the first 10 seconds was about Natalie Holloway. In what way is she or was she Entertainment related? I mean other than morbid fascination. I never found out, I turned to Jeopardy.
don't hate. Just because you feel threatened by Ms. Palin doesn't mean you should blame ET. If you can't handle Ms. Palins knowlege then continue to believe Obama's lies.
"Ms Palin's knowledge"? I just love a healthy dose of sarcasm!
Yes Dexter. I'm sure Sarah told you the truth while you were having an affair with her. Just like you had with Mary Hart. LOL you are such a loser, you should move to Alaska to be with her.
Dexter, maybe it is just that she couldn't achieve any with YOU! Just sayin'...
ET's pandering to the Palin family has driven me away. One talking head is the same as the next
I had an affair with Mary Hart in 1996. She is unable to orgasm. She said she has never had one in her life.
What about Snookie?
I'd hit that!
