Showed up early at The Shrine to check out the happenings on the red carpet. But the most famous person around was Debbie Matenopolis from E! network. I wanted to ask her about the whole Star Jones thing and if she thought Rosie was gonna give Barbara Walters a nervous breakdown but she was getting ready to go on live on the East Coast.
So, I looked around the stands and I found this beautiful 13-year-old girl and her family: Dana Jordan from Washington DC. Dana is suffering from a form of bone cancer and the Make A Wish Foundation wanted to make her dream come true which was to come to the Emmys! Dana’s make-up was professionally done and she had on turquoise spaghetti strapped dress and gold slippers. I’m not a fashion expert but I say Dana is the prettiest girl here tonight.
I asked Dana who she wanted to see up-close and she had a quick answer: Everybody!” She also loves “The Office” so will be looking out for Steve Carell and hopes some of the kids from “High Scholl Musical” traipse down the red carpet.
Dana, at the Emmys with her parents William and Margaret, is hitting Universal Studios tomorrow before she and the family go back home.
