The 21 minutes I spent on the gold carpet — finding celebs, pulling them aside from the ever-present paparazzi and fitting as much into 30-second or one-minute interviews as possible — were absolutely insane. My imagination fell short of the hectic, on-the-go, extremely exhilarating sensation that was my first live preshow. Two of the highlights of the night were certainly being thrown Will Smith, Charlize Theron, and Anne Hathaway at the same time, and interviewing beautiful and talented superstar Sarah Jessica Parker.

Backstage, I was able to catch up with my buddies the Pussycat Dolls and even got to ask Paris Hilton if she'd consider me for the new BFF role (she said ... maybe next season). I was also really excited to talk to Anne Hathaway and Liv Tyler, who seem to be great friends (was I the third wheel?!). And T.I., who talked about getting back on the scene after his legal troubles. Jennifer Hudson was there too, and I talked to her about "SATC" of course, but also about her album. She even sang a few notes for me ... incredible.
And thanks to the MTV audience who picked which dresses I should wear. I started my night in a fantastic black sequined Poleci dress and finished it off backstage and at the afterparty in an elegant Yigal Azrouël. So thanks to everyone who voted — you guys did me well.
