It's Official! Mary Hart Is Out!

| Filed under: TV News


For almost 30 years, Mary Hart has been the anchor of Entertainment Tonight.

Last week, we heard grumblings that the show was giving old Mary the axe to bring in some younger blood - Lara Spencer from The Insider. Turns out, Mary is leaving ET, but she is leaving of her own accord. (or so she says!)

This morning, Mary released a statement through the ET website explaining her decision. She says:

"I've had the privilege of spending 29 years doing something I love — how often does that happen? I've had the support of a stupendous group of people starting with Linda Bell Blue, John Nogawski and many others who are so talented on our staff at ET. I only meant to be at ET for three years, suddenly it's almost 30! I've reached a point when I clearly realize it's time for a change. There are many things I want to do in my life and I'd better get on with them.

It will certainly be with mixed sentiments that I say 'goodbye' at the end of the season, but it will definitely be with a sense of celebration … 30 years of Entertainment Tonight, are you kidding me? That's an accomplishment and something I'm very proud of!"

It truly is an accomplishment to stand by! We just hope your departure really is about you opening a new chapter in your life and not show execs looking to add a new face to the line-up.

An end to an era!

    Wow and she even has her own wax figure. Bummer

    The last time you talked about her was to put her down and to be an all around bitch. (All these Perez should hold meetings once in a while to get their stories straight.)

    We're celebrating a teleprompter reader here? Really?

    I watch Insider every now and again, and I havent seen Mary Hart on there for years. I always see Lara Spencer and her weird lady with how to get the look for less. I havent seen Mary Hart on that show since MIB2 came out.

    Looks like I won't be watching ET anytime soon… I don't watch it often as it is but now I have a reason not to ever watch it again… I can't stand Lara Spencer!

    Not surprised that they finally replaced her and it was about time! You see women don't last very long and its about time she let someone else take her spot. Just like Barbara on the View she needs to go too, bitch is so fucking old that she needs to step off and give somebody else a shot. These old hags want to be on TV forever but there is only so much surgeries, botox, and make-up can do for you.

    Well, that is the end of the show for me too, That Lara Spencer irritates me to no end! I never watch The Insider because of her!

    Her only talent is to read believably - which actually is a talent she shares with our president! Too bad he isn't resigning!

    Mary had a great run. And still looks damn good too. Lara was on Antique Roadshow and has many friends in the business. I can't see her staying as long as Mary and she is not as friendly and cheery as Mary. Antique Road Show is on PBS she used to host that. Then went to Inside Edition. But whatever they should try her out for a year or so. JMO!

    Ha–of her own accord—just like Ellen

    I used to see her with John Tesh back in the day on ET! Bummerrrr she is leaving….

    Mary Hart has always been the class act of that show and I don't blame her for leaving. The integrity of that show has slipped by 1000%. It is a garbage show just like all the others now. It focuses on sensationalism and not the entertainment news the way it used to be. Smart girl, she is jumping ship on a high note.

    Lara Spencer was great on PBS"s Antique Roadshow, but replacing Mary Hart!
    Surely you jest!
    Unfortunatly you don't, too bad Mary your still the only E.T. host in my books!
    Love ya Mary!
