'America's Got Talent' Wish List

'90210' Star, 'Vain' Singer

and Another Woman

11/5/2012 5:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1104_americas_got_talent_getty"America's Got Talent" is working to fill the vacant spot at the judge's table left by the departure of Sharon Osbourne ... and TMZ knows the identities of the 3 women the show has targeted.

According to our sources, producers have their eyes on Shannen Doherty, Carly Simon and Leann Rimes. We're told the show is looking for a strong and opinionated woman -- and they're thinkin' any one of them would fit the bill.

The judge's spot became available over the summer after Sharon Osbourne decided to quit the show after she claimed NBC dropped her son Jack from a reality show due to his MS diagnosis.

It's possible the producers could have other seats to fill -- we're told Howard Stern and Howie Mandel are not under contract for next season ... so it's conceivable the show could have an all-new judge's table.

As for Doherty, Simon and Rimes, we're told no offers have been made ... yet.

NBC spokesperson Sharon Pannozzo claims no such list of prospective judges exists -- but our sources, and they're good, say it does.

Shannen Doherty is a drunken drug addicted Loser Leann Rimes is no longer viable and is looking for a quick paycheck.
Carly Simon would be a good fit

I wouldn't care to see any of them! What randomly odd choices. Have any of these women done anything recent enough for them to be relevant? I mean aside from stealing someone else's husband?

I like Doherty's acting, but Rimes? I don't know that more fame is what she needs right now.

What an odd final three. A washed up actress known for being a bitch, an anorexic homewrecking singer, and a well respected musician. I hope Carly comes to her senses and has nothing to do with AGT.

PLEASE DO NOT hire Rhimes! She has no talent except for a good BJ with that donkey face! Hee-haw! Hee-Haw! No self-esteem either since she can't take anyone calling her a homewrecker that she is! Hire a REAL person with REAL talent! Can't wait till she catches Eddie cheating on her. He already is, she just ain't caught him yet! It will serve her right!
