Goldin and Budig Guide Daytime Emmys' Fashion Parade

They're no Joan and Melissa Rivers, but that's a good thing. The always hilarious Ricky Paull Goldin (Jake, All My Children) and the charming Rebecca Budig (Greenlee, AMC) will host SOAPnet's 2008 Live From the Daytime Emmys special on Friday, June 20, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Joining them are Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital) and Lawrence Zarian, both of whom have a background as fashion hosts and correspondents. To top it off, Jordan Pruitt will kick off the extravaganza with a special musical performance of the single "Her Shoes," which is featured on her upcoming album "Permission to Fly."

Budig, who is best known for her role as Greenlee Smythe on “AMC,” will chat with the stars as they arrive at the red carpet. Budig's credits as a TV host include Full Frontal Fashion, post-show round-ups of The Bachelor on ABC Family and as an occasional co-host of ABC’s The View.

Goldin currently stars as Dr. Jake Martin on AMC but for years was a fan favorite as Gus Aitoro on Guiding Light. Goldin, with his quick wit, has expertly interviewed the stars at the Daytime Emmys before, and I look forward to seeing his encore performance.

Hughes and Zarian will team up to discuss the most important part of the red carpet: Fashion. Featured this year is the “Dr. Scholls’ for Her” shoe cam, and at the end of the show, the fashion experts will announce the winner of the Dove Dark Chocolate “Most Fashionable Moment of the Night.”

Hughes is host of the Style Network’s How Do I Look?, while Zarian has numerous hosting gigs under his belt including TV Guide Channel’s The Fashion Team and co-host of KTLA’s Live from the Academy Awards in 2004.

This year, SOAPnet’s Live From The Daytime Emmys will also go behind-the-scenes with Jack Mackenroth, the season 4 contestant of Project Runway who is HIV-positive and, sadly, had to leave PR early due to a facial infection. He has created a one-of-a-kind gown for Heather Tom (Katie, The Bold and The Beautiful), who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress. SOAPnet will reveal the final look on the red carpet, and her gown will later be auctioned off on and the money will go to AIDS-related charities. In addition, Good Morning America’s Sam Champion will review the nominees of the final four categories including Outstanding Drama Series, Outstanding Talk Show Entertainment, Outstanding Lead Actor and Outstanding Lead Actress. will feature red carpet coverage from fashion expert and Project Runway Season 2 alum Nick Verreos, as well as coverage from reporters Sam Sarpong and Jelynn Rodriguez. The website will feature a live blog from the Emmys, red carpet slideshows straight from the event, and streaming video straight from the red carpet — and the show — shot by fan favorite celebrity nominees!

Viewers will also have the chance to see what it’s like to attend the Daytime Emmys. will be placing video cameras at 20 of the tables for actors and actresses to capture all the excitement in the Kodak Theater on their big night. The footage will be streamed on, giving viewers insider access into the exclusive event.

Katy Perry Kisses a Girl

Would you buy this magazine? It's the fictional Restless Style, a product of the imagination of Nick, Phyllis, Sharon and Jack on The Young and the Restless. It's a fab cover, and I'd probably splurge and spend a few bucks based on the photography and layout alone.

Pop singer Katy Perry graces the second cover of Restless Style magazine. As Katy's single "I Kissed a Girl" soared to the iTunes Top Ten, Katy made an appearance on Y&R to participate in the cover shoot, which will be unveiled on-air on the June 27th episode. But you can see Katy's final cover now. The dress is vintage silk from The Way We Wore, and you can check out a gallery of Katy's other cover-girl outfits at, along with an exclusive article about Katy's recent success.
