The Scoop From The Emmys

August 28, 2006 By:

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the Emmys last night, no worries Hollyscoop has the scoop for you. Funnyman Conan O'Brien made fun of NBC's tumble in ratings during his opening number singing "To prove things are going to hell, we're relying on Howie Mandel". Overall I think Conan did a great job with the show. Along with some jokes came a lot of drama, starting from the red carpet when E! Host Ryan Seacrest questioned Leah Rimini about Suri Cruise. Leah who is BFF with Tomkat claims she has seen the mysterious alien child was annoyed by the baby questions. The catfight didn’t stop there. On the other side of the carpet Access Hollywood host Billy Bush didn’t know when to stop as he kept annoying Entourage star Jeremy Piven questions about celebrity baby sightings. The clip is hilarious as Jeremy lashes out against the perky journalist (click here to view). Piven had just flown in from Arizona, where he was shooting a movie with Jennifer Garner. Bush asked Piven about Garner’s baby Violet then followed it with a question on Brangelina asking if he had ever laid eyes on baby Shiloh since he lives in Malibu. Jeremy said he hadn't, explaining that he had "other things to do...I don't go hunting for celebrity babies, thank you, Billy." Still not content with his answer Billy then asked Piven if he had seen Suri Cruise. Piven finally lost his patience. "You need another job. You have potential as a human being," said Piven, not at all hiding his irritation. "This may not be right for you. Seriously can you focus on other things? ” OUCH!

The drama extended from the red carpet to the actual show. During the Aaron Spelling tribute, cameras caught Candy and daughter Tori Spelling sitting on opposite ends with her husband Dean McDermott as they watched the moving tribute. Candy Spelling wiped away her tears while sitting next to her son Randy Spelling. Spelling's Charlie’s Angels- Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett and Jaclyn Smith also took the stage for the Aaron tribute which all three teared up while remembering the star-maker. Although they looked hot, it seemed as though “Charlie’s Angels” had been visiting Dr. 90210 far too many times. Heather Locklear also took part in the Aaron Spelling tribute and looked gorgeous. Another emotional moment was seeing Dick Clark take the stage in a wheel chair. This was Clarks second television appearance since his stroke.
