Mary Hart‘s final taping of Entertainment Tonight came with plenty of bells and whistles — in the form of a surprise party!
A trio of Hart’s former co-hosts — John Tesh, Bob Goen and Robb Weller — were on hand Thursday to honor their one-time colleague, while second-generation singer Natalie Cole sang her hit Unforgettable for the veteran TV personality.
As we previously reported, Nancy O’Dell, formerly of Access Hollywood, will take Hart’s spot on the broadcast.
“Knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O’Dell makes that decision much easier,” Hart said of her difficult decision to leave the TV franchise.
Hart, 60, began working for ET in 1981 as a correspondent.
