Michael Jackson’s Son Lands ‘Entertainment Tonight’ Job

Prince Michael JacksonMichael Jackson's son has landed a job as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.

Prince Michael Jackson, 16 - whose father died from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - is hoping the job will lead to a long career in the entertainment industry: "I'm looking to become well-rounded as a producer, director, screenwriter and actor. I've been raised around stuff like this so it was different being the interviewer instead of the one being interviewed."

While Prince's first interview was with James Franco, Zach Braff and director Sam Raimi for their new movie,Oz the Great and Powerful, he is hoping his next one will be with Peter Jackson as he loved to watch the director's movies with his dad. "Peter Jackson, I love his movies. Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and King Kong. I just love the way he shoots [and how] he brings things and depicts it back to life. I used to study his movies with my dad, put the volume off and just watch it, just the shots to see how he put it together," he explained.

Nancy O’Dell Taking Over Mary Hart’s Entertainment Tonight Post

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Talk Shows, Syndication, News,

Nancy O'DellAlthough she’s the host of The Insider, it turns out Lara Spencer did not have the inside advantage when it came to Mary Hart’s job.

For months now, it had been speculated that Spencer would take over Mary Hart’s soon-to-be vacant post at Entertainment Tonight. Unfortunately, Lara lost out to another blonde personality: Nancy O’Dell.

O’Dell is, of course, no stranger to entertainment reporting. She previously hosted Access Hollywood alongside Billy Bush.

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

Nancy will first appear on the ET set in January when she begins correspondent and fill-in anchoring duties. She will then take over the highly-coveted position when Hart signs off at the end of the 2010-11 season.

"Leaving this job was not an easy decision, but knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier," Hart said. "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."

The software can also be utilized to break the language down into nouns and verbs. If they still can’t figure it out, perhaps a bag of Reese’s Pieces might help.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies, Celebrity Babies, Rumors,

Angelina Jolie pregnantUPDATE: Entertainment Tonight has finally acknowledged that it was previously ‘given false information’ about the twins’ birth.

A news conference held earlier today told Entertainment Tonight something that program didn’t what to hear: Angelina Jolie has not had her babies…yet.

The media’s presence in the South of France has grown ever since the actress checked into the hospital earlier this week. But according to the facility’s rep, the 33-year-old’s stay had been “planned for a long time.”

During Tuesday’s presser in France, Jolie’s obstetrician told photographers they’ll have to patient if they want to stalk the family; the newborns will be welcomed sometime “in the weeks to come.” In the meantime, outlets shouldn’t fill time speculating about Angelina’s current condition.

“Everything is normal. She is very well, and she’s okay. ... Brad and Angelina want everyone to know that everything is going well.”

So Mary Hart—do you think ET will finally get around to printing that retraction now?
