NBC Throws Cold Water on Rosie O'Donnell's Rumored Move to 'America's Got Talent' -- But Rosie IS Headed to NBC Deadline
NBC is giving Rosie O’Donnell a lump of coal for the holiday season, saying she won’t be appearing on “America’s Got Talent” anytime soon.
The netowrk said it's not talking with O'Donnell about joining the talent competition as a judge and has no future plans for her to do so, reports Deadline.com.
As previously reported, speculation that O'Donnell might join the show began after a report surfaced that judge Howard Stern had indicated he would like her to join the show.
However, O'Donnell will appear on NBC -- on a different show. "She will be playing herself on an upcoming episode of 'Smash' when 'Bombshell' opens on Broadway,” an NBC representative said.
