The Daytime Emmy Awards just aren’t what they used to be. The ratings were up from last year’s poor 2.6 million viewers on the CW but they only averaged around 5.5 million people tuning in for the night. These are terrible numbers for a CBS show. The biggest diappointment is that no big stars bother to show up at all… even though they’re nominated. WTF? That makes fashion bashing even harder. I DID call it right though….Cash Cab & it’s host, Ben Baily, walked away with “Outstanding Game Show” & “Outstanding Gameshow Host” last night.
Here are some other winners:
Drama Series: The Bold & the Beautiful
Lead Actress: Maura West (As the World Turns)
Lead Actor: Michael Park (As the World Turns)
Informative Talk Show: The Doctors
Entertainment Talk Show: The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Talk Show Host: Dr. Oz
Let’s move on to some Red Carpet sightings…..
Ok, Susan Lucci really is much classier than this messy little mermaid dress. That thick strap going over her right shoulder is so out of place. Is it there to hold up her fake boobs? As for Rachel Ray, who by the way, was one of the stars bothering to show up because she was nominated, didn’t win an Emmy & didn’t win with this dress either. I think it’s the fact that it’s short that doesn’t work for me. It cuts her off right at her knees & makes her thighs look huge.
Carnie Wilson & Marie Osmond are both inspirations for weight loss & even though Carnie has fallen off the wagon, she tried to show us that fat is beautiful. Did it work? I think so. Marie, on the other hand, is slim & trim now & I wish she’d have left that feathery skirt back in the costume room. It looks like she came straight from her Las Vegas act right to the awards show. It just doesn’t do her new figure justice. It does match her hair though.
Now, if you’re going to show off your hips, this is the way to do it. Carolyn Hennesey has that volupuous figure that needs to be shown off. I love this dress & I think she makes my “best dressed” list. Elizabeth Hendrickson looks like a silent movie star in her white satin gown. I just wish it was a little less baggy at the waist.
The youngsters did a pretty good job of dressing themselves. Nadia Bjorlin has the body I once had (in my dreams) & is stunningly beautiful. This is the way to wear feathers. A tad too much make-up, but her youth lets her get away with it. Eden Riegel is dressed like a greek god but she’s too thin for it to work. The color & the belt are wrong for such a pretty girl & that purse??? It looks like a rolled-up newspaper from a distance. She should have worn a mini.
Look how cute these two are. Ashley Jones & Molly McCook could be twins, don’t ya think. Of the two, I do like Molly’s melon-colored mini better. Molly makes my “best dressed” list.
Here they are! My two “worst dressed” for the evening. Rebecca Budig went all out with all these textures in one dress. I really wanted to like it, but there was just too much & those shoes? I wonder how long it took to get them on. Her “Mary Tyler Moore” hair was cute. Just looking at Melissa Archer makes me wonder what she was thinking. That alligator leather running down the front can’t hold her fake boobs in. The teeny-tiny black shoes & grandma purse don’t help either. A better fitting bodice & some color in her accesssories may have helped, but the texture down the front in just “fugly”. She’s the winner of the “worst dressed” IMO.
The BET Awards
It’s all over the news today, that Chris Brown’s appearance at the BET Awards, his first appearance since his smackdown of Rhianna last year, was just for publicity. Being introduced by Jermaine Jackson, Brown took the stage in the iconic fedora & glove symbolizing Michael Jackson as he moonwalked his way thru “Billie Jean”, without missing a step. But when he grabbed the microphone to sing “Man in the Mirror”, Chris broke down, tears filled his eyes & at one point he fell to his knees. Was he faking? I don’t think so… do you? I can’t believe this is headline news.
What the hell Brandy? That dress is god-awful. The darts in her bodice & those inflated hips are anything but flattering. Ciara’s dress wouldn’t be so bad if she hadn’t added all that fringe down the back of her arms. I really like her belt & boots.
Two kinds of sexy. Cassie really shows off her fit & trim body with her tube top & matching pants. It’s the shoes I hate. Tatyana Ali has that sultry sexy look going in her form-fitting gown.
Omaraosa makes my “Best Dressed” list. In fact, I think she’s #1 on it. I absolutely LOVE this dress… the color, the fit, the style. She looks beautiful. Kim Coles has on a simple lace dress & it works. It fits her perfectly. It’s the shoes I have a problem with. Her fat is popping out of the weaves, not good. I bet she still has those lacing marks on her ankles today.
Being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to look fat or frumpy. Bree Williamson proves that in this beautiful, flowing gown. The color, her hair & make-up make her very sexy indead. She’s #2 on my “best dressed” list. Taraji P. Henson didn’t make my list, but not because she looks bad, she just looks ordinary. No “wow” factor, either way.
Keri Hilson looks cute in her printed mini. I’m not sure about the color, but that may be because it clashes with that red curtain behind her. I love the belt & shoes. I just had to mention Nick Cannon. He’s such a cutey. Mariah doesn’t deserve him. He always looks so dapper. As for Fergie, I like everything about her dress except that white v-shaped strip going across her midriff. Is that a tummy tucker panel? Those sunglasses are kinda stupid too, but I do like the shoes.
Here we are. My “Worst Dressed” for the BET Awards…. Jada Pinkett Smith. This old lady should be ashamed of herself. She just looks riddiculous. I can’t even imagine what humiliation her poor kids endured. But then again, look how she dressed them.
There ya have it. Did I get it right? Of course I did.
