HOWARD Stern is desperate for Rosie O’Donnell to join him on the panel of America’s Got Talent.
The shock jock recently confirmed he will return to the TV talent show despite initial doubts and those close to Howard revealed he is lobbying for Rosie to get a role too.
“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 source said.
“NBC wants to keep Howard happy, and the chemistry between the judges is what makes the show a huge success.
“Just think what Rosie did when she joined The View — suddenly the show became must-see TV again. At the moment, a list of names exists, but if it were solely up to Howard, Rosie would get the job.”
Howard’s fellow judge Howie Mandel is also set to return although Sharon Osbourne quit the panel earlier this year after claiming NBC fired her son Jack Osbourne via email from reality show ‘Stars Earn Stripes’ following his diagnosis with multiple sclerosis (MS).
