INFOTAINMENT FOR THE PEOPLE OF EARTH SINCE 2006

NANCY O'DELL GETS THE E.T. HOSTING GIG

When Mary Hart announced she's leaving Entertainment Tonight after this season, the natural choice for her replacement would have been Lara Spencer. Lara has hosted ET's sister show, The Insider, for years. It seemed like the perfect fit. But now, word that Lara has been pushed aside. Nancy O'Dell will be the new co-host of ET starting next season.

O'Dell left Access Hollywood last year, claiming the show was too tabloid. (Rumor has it she didn't get along with egomaniac co-host Billy Bush). Lara Spencer has been hosting The Insider solo since Pat O'Brien was kicked to the curb for bad behavior. In August, it was announced that she'd be Mary Hart's replacement. Spencer even moved her family out to Los Angeles, thinking the job was hers. Unfortunately for her, Nancy O'Dell has really good representation.

Sources say ET's executive producer, Linda Bell, gave the thumbs down to O'dell months ago. But that didn't stop O'Dell's agent from calling the head of CBS, Les Moonves, to convince him to bail on Spencer.

The New York Post claims Spencer is pissed about being looked over. But Spencer claims that couldn't be further from the truth (yeah, right). Today, she spoke out to People magazine.

"There's no feud. I have a great job. I host a show that I love and that I helped launched," Spencer said. "Nancy is a really great choice. I've known her for years and she's going to be a great addition to the team."

Talk about taking the high road. Let's see how long Lara sticks around on the set of The Insider.
