A brand new hosting gig

We've been waiting to see just who will appear on Oprah's celebrity-packed network, OWN, when it launches next year. Now we're learning that Oprah's given former Access Hollywood host Nancy O'Dell a show, along with Queer Eye for the Straight Guy's Carson Kressley.

We were starting to wonder what Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell would be doing now that she's out her hosting gig. But she won't have to be jobless for long because Oprah has given her a show on her new network, OWN. Nancy O'Dell and Carson Kressley will be hosting the upcoming Your OWN Show: Oprah's Search For The Next TV Star.

The show will feature the 10 finalists of Oprah's contest to find a new star for her network. They'll be facing challenges to help them improve their camera presence and interview skills. Nancy O'Dell and Carson Kressley will be hosting the show, with a celebrity judge also appearing each week.

Some find Nancy O'Dell slightly annoying, while others will be thrilled she has a hosting job again. We're sure Nancy is incredibly excited to have a show on Oprah's new network. Carson Kressley says, "I am so thrilled, grateful and excited to be a part of Your OWN Show. Not only do I get to inspire and be inspired by an amazing group of very talented contestants, I will also have the privilege of working with seasoned pros like Nancy O'Dell, Mark Burnett and of course, my hero, Oprah Winfrey. How lucky am I?"
