Nancy O’Dell is on her way to fabulous Las Vegas, where she’ll host Fox’s “New Year’s Eve Live” tonight (12/31) — and says it’ll be an adults only affair.
“I’m bringing my husband with me, and my father,” says the soon-to-be “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent, whose dad came to stay with her and her husband, stepsons and daughter for Christmas. “The kids will stay back in L.A., I think. My baby girl is 3 1/2, but knowing her, she’ll stay wide awake. She can count to 40 or so, and she’s been practicing counting backwards, so maybe I’ll have her count down to ‘Happy New Year.'”
Even if little Ashby’s New Year’s countdown doesn’t make it to TV, Nancy says she’ll cherish the video. “I have a million and one videos of her. I’m a mamarazzi,” she tells us.
For Nancy, who’ll preside over the Fox New Year’s Eve show featuring Travie McCoy and David Archuleta, the gig is particularly special. “I’ve always wanted to do a New Year’s Eve show, so now I get to check that off my bucket list.”
