Backstage HOT SHOTS from the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards!
Did you watch the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards this year??? I’ve got it on my DVR, because I was busy hanging out backstage with presenters, nominees and winners — at the Emergen-C Inner City of Strength in The Presenters Gift Lounge backstage at The Nokia Theatre in Celebration of The 64th Primetime Emmy(R) Awards!
I had the pleasure of welcoming and chatting with stars from television’s biggest shows like Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Mad Men, New Girl, Damages, Homeland, Downton Abbey. Some of my favorite moments were with “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan, “Modern Family” winner Eric Stonestreet, actresses Lucy Liu, Martha Plimpton, and Mayim Bialik (Blossom!!!), the iconic Glen Close & so many more…
I had so many favorite moments but here is Micah Jesse’s Top 5 Favorite Primetime Emmy Awards Moments for 2012:
- Actor, director and all-around intertainment industry legend Ron Howard stopped by the Emergen-C City of Inner Strength, where I was holding court, and told me that Super Orange was his favorite flavor because it reminded him of Tang, the popular drink from the “Happy Days” era. When asked where he’s residing these days, Ron said, “we really live in New York – we have an apartment in Santa Monica but most of our time is spent at our houses in Manhattan and Westchester County.” He went on to explain that he “grew up in Los Angeles and loves it here, but New York is now home.” Home to me, too, Ron!
- Giancarlo Esposito, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for “Breaking Bad”, was such a breath of fresh air! I asked the vivacious actor if he drank Emergen-C, he said, “Are you kidding me – I don’t travel without it!” If Giancarlo had a superpower, he told me he would actually have a dual-superpower…he would be able to read minds & fly. Love that!
- Who’s more fun than “30″ rock star Tracy Morgan? Easy answer — no one! The funnyman stopped backstage to kick his feet up and relax before the show was over and entertain us all. Tracy had us fizzing at the seams with hysterics. At one point he picked up the phone and said, “Tell Barack I’ll be right there!” You can actually watch a clip from Access Hollywood!
- Best known for playing Al Bundy on “Married With Children,” actor Ed O’Neill was celebrating an Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nomination for his role as Jay Pritchett on “Modern Family.” As much as he loves his role as an actor, Ed told me that ultimately, he wants to be best known for being a “super dad.” Awwwwwwww!!!! Mush!
- And last, but certainly not least, having a moment with actor Eric Stonestreet, who won Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his role as Cameron Tucker on “Modern Family.” The actor told me he is “super” at cooking and makes a mean steak. And he laughed off rumors of dating Charlize Theron but said he wasn’t mad about it! I wouldn’t be either!

Sofia Vergara: Showing No Signs Of Breakup Woes!
This morning, The New York Post’s Page Six broke the news that “Modern Family” star, Sofia Vergara and environmental businessman, Nick Loeb (her boyfriend of two years) have called it quits ”following a series of arguments,” and that on Monday, Sofia attended the annual Met Gala solo as a result of the split.
Today, the Latina superstar and Beyonce‘s mother Tina Knowles joined their friend, jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz, at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s Annual Spirit of Achievement Awards luncheon. Lorraine was being honored for her work as a successful entrepreneur and also in the fight against women’s health issues.
“[Sofia] looked stunning and slender as ever in her Victoria Beckham dress and showed no signs of any break up woes, staying way past the event ended mingling and taking pictures with friends of Lorraine’s and members of the organization,” our source tells MJ, adding, “she was bubbly and happy and friendly the entire time.”
The three moms chatted it up over lunch while checking out each other’s bling (all by Lorraine of course). Our insider tells us that dessert was super classy – Twinkies and Ding Dongs – and Sofia even ate a few!Read More

Watch Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Jane Lynch + More In Play About Marriage Equality! — VIDEO
A fundraiser for the American Foundation for Equal Rights brought out HUGE stars this week!
“8″: A Play about the Fight for Marriage Equality featured an all-star cast including George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Martin Sheen, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Jane Lynch, Kevin Bacon, “Glee” stars Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison and Chris Colfer, and others, was written by Academy Award winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black and directed by acclaimed actor and director Rob Reiner.
It is a powerful account of the case filed by the American Federation for Equal Rights (AFER ) in the U.S. District Court in 2010 to overturn Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment that eliminated the rights of same-sex couples to marry in the state of California. Framed around the trial’s historic closing arguments in June 2010, 8 provides an intimate look what unfolded when the issue of same-sex marriage was on trial.
Watch the entire play right here (forward to the 30 minute mark):
The audience was almost as star-studded as the on-stage cast. In attendance were Barbra Streisand with husband James Brolin, Sally Field, Vanessa Williams, Leonard Nimoy, Toni Collette, Sofía Vergara, and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom.Read More

SAG Awards Fashion: Micah Jesse’s Top 5 Best Dressed Picks!
Award shows are a great place to check out (and critique) celebrity fashion — and of course there are people who do it right and who do it wrong — but we’re picking out Top 5 FAVORITES from the 2012 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards red carpet! Here we go…
Daring actress Rose Byrne (“Bridesmades”) slipped into a sparkly white jumpsuit from Elie Saab’s Fall 2009 couture collection. The onesie featured little cap sleeves, a plunging neckline and wide-legged pants. She paired the jumpsuit with a sleek bob, which hairdresser Harry Josh described as ”’70s inspired Michelle Pfeiffer from Scarface meets Anna Wintour’s bob.” A-ma-zing!
“Best Actress” winner Viola Davis (“The Help”) literally shined on the red carpet in a white strapless silk chiffon Marchesa gown with a gold beaded bodice, paired with Jimmy Choo shoes. The night was handed to her! Well deserved! (Watch Giuliana Rancic interview Viola Davis on the red carpet!)
E! News host Giuliana Rancic looked “ravishing in red” on the carpet in an embellished Basil Soda floor-length gown, before she took her position on the red carpet.
Nominee Emma Stone (The Help) wore with a custom Alexander McQueen dress, pairing it with Tiffany & Co. Luce Diamond Earrings by Paloma Picasso and finished off the look with four incredible Jean Schlumberger rings on her right hand.
Vivacious and voluptuous “Modern Family” actress Sofia Vergara dazzled in a fuchsia fishtail dress from Marchesa and paired it with Lorraine Schwartz jewels. (Watch Giuliana Rancic interview Sofia Vergara on the red carpet!)

Where Were The Stars This Week?
“X Factor” judge Nicole Scherzinger partied alongside good friends Topher Grace and Dane Cook Saturday night at Greystone Manor Supperclub. The three showed up separately, but we’re told they planned on meeting there and all shared a booth dancing with close friends. Nicole was so happy to let loose, she even hit the dance floor with friends while Topher and Dane hung out laughing and holding down the fort. The three left together at 2:30am. Sounds like a fun night!
Rosie Huntington Whiteley was spotted at Soolip Paperie in West Hollywood this week. The “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” actress was wearing an blazer teamed with a faded pair of jeans with tan suede ankle boots and sunglasses as she made her exit.
David Beckham attracted the spotlight with the help of his two sons at The 2011 Sun Military Awards in London. The soccer stud dad and Brooklyn Beckham and Romeo Beckham all suited up and looked absolutely adorable together as the posed for pictures on the red carpet at the Imperial War Museum.
Teaming up for a fun-filled midday outing, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale were ever the giggly duo while out at a Ralph’s Supermarket in Los Angeles this week. The former “High School Musical” co-stars were also joined by Vanessa’s beau Austin Butler, who pushed Ashley up and down the aisles as she plopped herself inside a shopping cart.
Viva la Mexico! Sofia Vergara was seen busy soaking up the rays as she decided to head the tropical weather this holiday season! The beauty and a gal pal relaxed as she tweeted, “With my friend @ingridcasares chiiiiilling in Mexico!”
Fresh off of celebrating his 48th birthday in Las Vegas, Brad Pitt was back in promotional mode as he attended a Columbia Pictures screening and Q&A for ”Moneyball” in Culver City, CA earlier this week!
