I just wrapped up my third 18 hour work day so this post will be brief (and probably full of spelling/grammer mistakes..ha!)…but I wanted to bring you the latest out of LA. The day started with all the preps for the Emmys including the red carpet roll out with host Jane Lynch and producer Mark Burnett. They are really focusing on being green this year…so the red carpet will be donated to Habitat for Humanity post Emmys & they will also use solar panel energy for some of the production. I got a glimpse inside the Nokia Theater…complete with picture marked seats. Lets just say…whomever sits closer to the stage equals more star power. Steve Carell is definitely front row. And shhh..don’t tell, but I noticed Glee’s Chris Colfer is sitting front row…but Lea Michele got booted to the 2nd row. All the funkadelic colors on the stage is to test all the different lighting hues. Here’s the most important detail you need to know about the Emmys…that I’ll be hosting a half hour post Emmys special on Sunday night 11:30PM-12AM on Fox 5:)
After chilling and talking with Jane Lynch (do not fear, she will be dancing and singing come Sunday night)…who was so so so gracious with her time (she rushed off after the interview to finish writing the award’s scripts!)…I got a sneak peak inside the Governor’s Ball. This is where the stars will party right after the Emmys. The decor inside is beyond decadent. Chandeliers galore! My favorite is the woman on top of a 40 foot chandelier skirt. Very Gaga-esque.
I felt like cattle today…being herded and rushed from one location to the next. I guess that’s what happens when you’re covering the launch of what seems like a dozen shows in 3 days + a set tour of the upcoming show “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” (starring Jamie Pressly and 2 time Tony Award winner, Katie Finneran) + all the Emmy’s preps. Oh! And the world premiere of what will be the biggest show on television: The X Factor.
The X Factor red carpet was electrifying! I caught up with host Steve Jones and Paula Abdul’s manager, Marty….and the best…I did “Asian poses” with Simon Cowell’s better half, Mezghan.
She is such a beauty inside and out. He’s very lucky to have found her. Mezghan stunned the crowd in her Victoria Beckham blue sheath and killer Jimmy Choo studded heels. In fact…all the ladies smashed it with their looks tonight. Paula looks better than ever…and Nicole Scherzinger has the best figure and skin on the planet. She may be a robot.
That’s a wrap for this tired, sleepy….extremely blessed reporter!
