Wouldn’t you just love to know what Don Rickles and Kathy Griffin were talking about backstage at the Nokia yesterday during the final rehearsals for tonight’s Emmycast!?! Maybe we can get it out of one of them at on the party circuit later tonight.

Nice to see that Lauren Conrad of "The Hills" (pictured right) got some extra practice on presenting Laurenconrademmys technique.

It’s now T-minus six hours and counting, and I’m just about to start making myself look presentable (it’ll take a while). I’m heading down to the Nokia around 1:30 with Bill Higgins, Variety‘s intrepid red carpet warrior. If technology doesn’t fail me, the first on-the-scene dispatch should come around 2:30 or 3 p.m., or as soon as something worth writing about happens.

Until then, enjoy this pic below of the first lady of television, the great Betty White, at Saturday’s rehearsal.
