Howard Stern said he wanted Rosie O’Donnell next to him on the AGT panel, but NBC said there are no current plans for that happening. According to Deadline, NBC is not in talks with O’Donnell and there are no plans for her to be a judge on season 8 of America’s Got Talent.
The Huffington Post initially reported Stern’s desires to have O’Donnell as the third judge last week. “Rosie and Howard have had a tough past but now they are great friends, he thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to that show.” a friend of Howard Stern’s told The Huffington Post.
However, Rosie recently stated that she was in talks with NBC and is excited about the opportunity, “I am very interested in doing America’s Got Talent with Howard Stern and I am talking to them,” O’Donnell told The New York Observer. “Let’s see how that works.”
