HOLLYWOOD - Mary Hart wasted no time finding a job after being fired after 29 years as host of Entertainment Tonight.
The South Dakota native has signed on to join the cast of the top rated sit-com Two and A Half Men.
Hart will portray Inger Svetsen, the new maid of Charlie Harper, who is played by Charlie Sheen. The actress who previously played Charlie's housekeeper Berta, Conchatta Ferrell, was let go when she let her weight get up to 502 pounds.
One of the shows producers said that it was costing the production crew thousands of dollars a week just in snacks alone.
A inside source noted that between Miss Conchatta and 16-year-old Angus T. Jones, who plays Charlie's nephew Jake, they were going through the catering truck like half a dozen vultures.
Ferrell had made a conscious effort to lose weight when she had stated that she had forced herself to stop eating food while showering.
SIDENOTE: Charlie Sheen says that now that all of his marital troubles are behind him he hopes to devote himself totally to the show which is set in Malibu Beach. He plans on meeting with the shows writers about having his new maid Inger appear in short shorts, skimpy bikini swimsuits, and sexy teddies.
