Nancy and MaryIn case you were wondering, 'Entertainment Tonight's' outgoing and incoming anchor women -- Mary Hart and Nancy O'Dell -- get along really well. Of course! When it comes to high-wattage, effervescent gregariousness, the two perpetually smiling blondes are practically twins.

Speaking of her official anointing as 'ET' heir apparent, 'Access Hollywood' veteran O'Dell says, "The day it was announced, Mary and I had a long wonderful phone conversation. She's so gracious and classy. I have such respect for her. Of course, we've known each other for years. We've shared the red carpets for competing shows, and she and I have been friends."

Now, she tells PopEater, they're planning some face time: "We haven't decided yet whether it will be a dinner with our spouses or a good long girls' lunch."
