I'm adding another Mailbox post because so many of you are mentioning Kathy Najimy on Andy's blog, and the great news that Tim Gunn will be serving as a Fashion Correspondent on NBC's "2006 Emmy Red Carpet Special." Here is the official press release - Thanks Maureen!
"PROJECT RUNWAY'S" TIM GUNN AND "ACCESS HOLLYWOOD'S" MARIA MENOUNOS TO SEE WHAT STARS CAN "MAKE IT WORK" ON NBC'S LIVE "2006 EMMY RED CARPET SPECIAL"
BURBANK, Calif. -- August 22, 2006 -- Tim Gunn, from Bravo's Emmy nominated hit series "Project Runway," will serve as a fashion correspondent on NBC's "2006 Emmy(r) Red Carpet Special," a one-hour event hosted by Billy Bush and Nancy O'Dell ("Access Hollywood"), airing live on Sunday, August 27 (7-8 p.m. ET) preceding the "58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards."
