And we thought Lara Spencer had the job in the bag!
According to sources, CBS execs are looking at all possible candidates to replace the Entertainment Tonight hosting spot that Mary Hart held for 29 years.
The Insider's Lara Spencer was the obvious choice, but according to an insider, Maria Menounos could be the real deal since she "has had exclusive interviews with President Obama and the first family before any other journalist. She's also has interviewed the likes of Oprah, Jennifer Lopez and Lindsay Lohan, which were quite provocative and intense interviews."
Even though Maria is currently a correspondent on three different NBC shows, she's become a hot commodity and it "may turn into quite the bidding war."
Who do U want to see as the new ET host??
