Nancy O’Dell Gets ET Gig

It took three months to get to the truth, but the Hollywood industry website called The Wrap was wrong!

On August 5, 2010, they had an exclusive that named Insider's Lara Spencer as Mary Hart's replacement on Entertainment Tonight. And practically every other celebrity website took their word as gospel.

But Monday night, ET confirmed to RumorFix that Access Hollywood's former anchor Nancy O'Dell is taking over the entertainment magazine show with co-anchor Mark Steines.

In a statement to RumorFix, O'Dell said, "I remember watching Entertainment Tonight when it first premiered and dreaming about working for the show someday! 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."

Nancy begins as special correspondent and substitute co-anchor in January.
