WINTER TV PRESS TOUR DIARY: Entertainment Gal at NBCUniversal!By Entertainment Gal | January 9, 2012 | Entertainment, Gals On The Town
This year, TV DivaGal passes the baton to L.A. correspondent Entertainment Gal as she covers the Winter Television Critics Association’s Winter TV Press Tour in Pasadena, Cali.!
It was fun and sun here at Winter TCA as I schmoozed with the stars and their makers from my first Winter TCA panel and party for NBCUniversal.
The one show we know every DivaGal will be watching this season is Fashion Star, where rising designers compete to have their designs actually purchased by buyers from Macy’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and H&M. Jessica Simpson, Nicole Richie and John Varvatos are the series’ celebrity mentors. Here’s what we love best; the winning designs will be available for purchase online immediately after the show and in the store the next day. “This show is as much about shopping as it is about fashion,” says series host Elle McPherson. Can you say instant gratification? We can! Fashion Star premieres March 13.
At the NBCUniversal party, I met up with the lovely Juliette Lewis (full disclosure: I’m a big fan and loved her in Natural Born Killers), who is currently going all types of viral in the web series S*&$ Girls Say.┬á She’s now starring as Tammy Hemphill, the receptionist on NBC’s reboot of The Firm. Tammy┬á works for Josh Lucas‘ character, Mitch McDeere and has an on-off relationship with Mitch’s brother, Ray played by Callum Keith Rennie.
I then got to hang out with sweetie Russell Hornsby from Grimm, another fave series of mine. So who took the picture? None other than USA star Michael Ealy, who premieres on the new series Common Law Jan. 26. Be sure to check back for my interview with Michael about his personal style.
Also spotted: Oxygen reality stars Tia and Tamara Mowry; Fashion Star‘s Nicole Richie; Angelica Houston; Grimm‘s David Giuntoli; Royal Pains‘ Mark Feuerstein, Being Human‘s Meaghan Rath and Sam Huntington, Jaleel White, The Voice‘s Adam Levine and Steve Harris.
Tune in Tuesday for my roundup from Fox!
