Lara Spencer Denies Nancy O'Dell Feud!

Filed under: TV NewsCelebrity Feuds

The denial has arrived!

Despite reports that Lara Spencer is FURIOUS that Nancy O'Dell is replacing Mary Hart on Entertainment Tonight, and not her, The Insider host is putting on her faux smile and asserting that it's all just lies!

She explains:

"That couldn't be further from the truth. There's no feud. I have a great job. I host a show that I love and that I helped launch. O'Dell is a really great choice. I've known her for years and she's going to be a great addition to the team. There's nothing but love – and I mean that. I understand the speculation, but I am right where I want to be. I have been very much in the loop and on board and really happy right where I am."

Sounds like she's trying to convince herself, just as much as the rest of us, that she means what she says!

Don't be too upset though, bb!

For most people, all of those shows are pretty much the same, so it's not like you're in a horrible position with The Insider! Take it in stride, gurl!

Thoughts??

Lara Spencer Vs. Nancy O'Dell

Filed under: TV NewsBusiness Blitz

SPOILER ALERT: Nancy wins

The Insider host Lara Spencer is PISSED that Mary Hart's Entertainment Tonight anchor chair has been given to Nancy O'Dell.

Sources say that ET producer Linda Bell had given O'Dell the "thumbs down" months ago, which makes this decision even more of a shocker.

Looks like O'Dell's agent, John Ferriter, approached CBS CEO Les Moonves, and convinced him to bail on Lara Spencer and give the anchor position to Nancy.

Apparently, Lara Spencer moved her family out to Los Angeles two years ago because she was promised that she'd get Mary Hart's job when the time came.

…Guess the time hasn't come!

What do U think about this news? Team Spencer or Team O'Dell?

It's Official! Nancy O'Dell Is New Host Of Entertainment Tonight!

Filed under: TV News

nancy o dell replacing mary hart on entertainment tonight

After nearly 30 years hosting Entertainment Tonight, Mary Hart will leave the show and Nancy O'Dell has been named as her replacement.

"I remember watching Entertainment Tonight when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show someday," said O'Dell. "I am honored to be the one chosen to fill a TV legend's seat and I hope I can do her proud!"

Hart knows she is leaving it in good hands!

Mary added:

"Leaving this job was not an easy decision, but knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier. Nancy is a talented and respected entertainment correspondent. We have spent many years working on opposite sides of the celebrity battlefield and I know the show will flourish with Nancy as co-anchor."

Nancy does know what she's doing! She has served as co-anchor of Access Hollywood for 13 years and will join ET as a special correspondent in January. O'Dell will fill in for Hart when she steps down next year.

Onwards and upwards!

Maria Menounos To Replace Mary Hart??

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??

Although Mary Hart has held the position of Entertainment Tonight host for 29 years, she's not going down without a fight.

The Insider host Lara Spencer, who is trying to get Hart's job, accidentally called herself the host of Entertainment Tonight while on the red carpet.

Oops! And Mary lost her shiz!

"She competely lost it and tossed her coffee at the screen," said an insider, who claimed Hart later apologized.

ET reps claims the outburst never happened.

Riiiiiiight.

Mary Hart's Salary Gets Slashed In Final Season

Filed under: TV News

Don't feel too bad for her though. She is still banking a lot of dough!

Yesterday, it was announced that Mary Hart, after almost 30 years with the show, will be parting ways with Entertainment Tonight. There have been rumblings that Mary was gently pushed out the door to make room for Lara Spencer to take over, but now we think the issue was more about money than it was recasting.

Sources are reporting that Mary was raking in a salary of five million dollars last year from ET! A bit much if you ask us!

Seems her hefty paycheck may be what did the studios in with her, so they drew up a new contract with Mary to finish out one last season.

What is interesting to us is that insiders reveal that for this final season, Mary accepted a significant pay reduction - a 50% paycut!

Whoa! That's pretty steep! If she was willing to take that much less money, why get rid of her???

Very strange…

No Surprise! Lara Spencer To Replace Mary Hart On ET!

Filed under: TV News

larawenn5356797.jpg

After the official announcement was made this morning on the Entertainment Tonight website that Mary Hart was jumping ship, we were wondering how long it would take the show to announce her replacement.

Last week, rumors were circulating that Mary was getting the axe so that newer, younger, perkier Lara Spencer from The Insider could take her place.

Although the show didn't allegedly give her said axe, sources are still suggesting that Mary is being replaced by Lara! In fact, insiders are reporting that the deal for the switch has been in place for years and that a signed deal was completed months ago.

However, the show has still made no official announcement on who will be Mary's successor.

Guess they're trying to let Mary enjoy the spotlight for a bit!

Whatevs! We see what's going down! Congrats, Lara!
