Speaking to Gambling911.com's Senior International Correspondent, Jenny Woo, on Monday, poker pro Vanessa Rousso vehemently denied rumors that she has been chosen to host the Game Show Network's popular "High Stakes Poker" show following the exit of AJ Benza. 

"I'm not the next host of HSP, not sure how the rumor started," Rousso said. 

Benza posted on his blog that executives of the show were not renewing his contract and that the next co-host would indeed be female.  It was perhaps a message on Ms. Rousso's own Twitter page that helped drive the rumor, however.

Poker icon Doyle Brunson also suggested that he would be thrilled to see Vanessa host the show.

"Vanessa Rousso is named as [A.J. Benza's] likely replacement. I'm pro-Vanessa so I think she will fit in nicely with the old comic Gabe Kaplan."

High Stakes Poker is co-hosted by Gabe Kaplan, best known for his starring role on Welcome Back Kotter.  He will be returning for another season.
