Billy's accosted Rachel Dratch, who apparently worked with him at some point. He looks like a giant next to her. She has no answer to the obligatory "What are you doing now question." But at least he has the guts to ask her how much she hates Tina Fey for writing her off of 30 Rock. She demurs, smartly, because she wants to work again."Screw you Krakowski" shouts Billy. Nice. So much better than Seacrest or Billy Bush.
Tim got suckered in to talking to an uncomfortable looking Dalton Ross, one of the A-List judges, who happens to work at EW. Some boring explanation about how the nominees were chosen.
Billy's got Karina Smirnoff (who shows up in the fashion show). Karina says she hopes she doesn't trip. Billy smarms that as a dancer she should be able to handle it. She says they are totally different. Yeah, right. I'm with Billy. He asks her if she does a lot of drugs. I am officially in love with him now.
Tim's talking to Molly Sims, who looks beautiful and shiny. Glad to see her looking all fabulous since her show got canceled. Am I the only one who liked Las Vegas and was sad to see it go? Actually, I probably don't want to know the answer to that.
Billy's talking to Nick Verreos. Stupid story that I've got to share. I was walking around downtown right after his season of Runway ended and saw him on the street and couldn't quite place where I knew him from. I meet a lot of people for work and through friends and out of context, so my little brain gets confused. Anyway. I waved at him and said hi, Nick... like a moron who thought he was my friend. And he graciously smiled and said "Hi" back and asked how I was... before he kept walking away from the freakishly crazy girl who thought she knew him. It wasn't until two blocks later that I put together where I knew him from. Dumb. But to make a long story longer... he's very gracious and has nice manners. Which helps when talking to Billy Eichner about stripping and showing off all his manly chest hair.
Some guy from John Frieda is standing next to Niki Taylor. He is a full head shorter than her, even with his stupid hat. Then Billy talks to Gail Simmons who brags that she went to the Emmys and gushes about how she's seen Kathy Griffin before. But her hair looks sleek. Padma talks to Tim, she's classy and says kind words about Lauren Hutton.
Billy wrangles the Real Housewives of New York City. He doesn't know anything about them. Neither do I. But he disses the makeup of the one who I think might be Ramona. "Good luck doing whatever it is you do." Amen.
