Life couldn't be any more hectic right now. I am in the midst of hosting Toyota Live at the Chicago Auto Show all while having to fly back to LA for 36 hours to host Live Connect for Toyota and their new Entune launch. To add to the excitement, I had a bit of Oscar dress drama since Inside Edition scooped up two of my planned outfits for their hosts. Remember I talked about that red carpet hierarchy? Oh yeah, it exists and I experienced it. Everything was ironed out though and I appreciate all of the dresses that have been loaned to me for Oscar events. So, I am off to set for the Live Connect show and then back to the airport to finish my gig in Chicago, but of course, home in time for Oscars Week on Monday. Phew!
