"Rosie and Howard have had a tough past but now they are great friends," a friend of Howard's told The Huffington Post. "He thinks she is a great talent and will bring a new energy to that show."

“Next year there are some things on the horizon,” she told the Observer. “I am very interested in doing 'America’s Got Talent' with Howard Stern and I am talking to them. Let’s see how that works."

As for what kind of judge she thinks she'd be, O'Donnell admitted, "I think I’d probably be nicer than most but I think I’d be honest. I think [Stern] is a genius, so to work with him would be a thrill for me.” Producer Simon Cowell, however, is rumored to be considering Carmen Electra for the judging role.
