It’s practically unthinkable. Entertainment Tonight without one Mary Hart?
Hart has been the host of the show since 1982. But the New York Post is speculating that she could be about to be replaced.
Hart’s contract is up this year, and there are whispers her job could be offered to Lara Spencer, who anchors the syndicated sister show The Insider.
“Our source says Spencer wants the job badly,” states the report, noting that Spencer now lives in Beverly Hills where ET is also produced, after previously commuting from Connecticut to a Times Square studio, for The Insider.
Hart was hired for ET 28 years ago after being interviewed by the show after Regis Philbin’s first talk show was cancelled. The day after the interview, she was hired as a correspondent. Thirteen weeks later, she was named the show’s co-host, along with Ron Hendren.
“There are no plans to make host changes to Entertainment Tonight, ” said Lisa Summers Haas, a representative for both ET and The Insider.
There better not be!
