Adieu, Mary Hart: The 'ET' hostess is stepping down
Mary Hart -- the ageless, perpetually perky longtime hostess of "Entertainment Tonight" -- is stepping down from the show after almost three decades.
The Hollywood Reporter says Hart, 59, will step down after the upcoming season of "ET," which begins in September. No replacement has been named, but THR notes that Lara Spencer of "The Insider" is one possibility.
Hart may have seemed like a "Stepford Wife"-style automaton, what with that unmovable poof of blond hair, the permanently etched-on smile and that broadcaster-perfect vocal style. But the woman was an institution. She's like the Helen Thomas of entertainment reporters, but, you know, with more of a Barbie sheen and a less combative nature.
Without Mary Hart, who else will ask chirpily probing questions of Jennifer Love Hewitt?
The answer is no one. Mary Hart is irreplaceable. So if some of you decide to spend the rest of the day curled up in a dark corner while snacking on a box of Ho-Hos and listening to the melancholy, smooth-jazz version of the "Entertainment Tonight" theme, I completely understand.
