Joshua Morrow by Robert Voets/CBS
I did a photo shoot with Joshua Morrow (Nick) and Sharon Case (Sharon) the other day. It was really fun - or at least Sharon and I had fun. Josh couldn't wait to get out of there. He had a softball game to go to, and taking pictures is not Josh's favorite thing to do. Here he had two hot babes draped over him and he still didn't like it.

Sharon just got married, so she's in honeymoon bliss. It's very sweet to see. Me myself, I'm alone, barren and lonely, ha ha ha. That's completely a joke. Of course I'm not barren.

The Daytime Emmys are next week. It will be very fun I'm sure. It's always fun to see everybody. I'm very much looking forward to the lead-actress luncheon on Thursday. And I picked the place and put together the event, since Susan Flannery (Stephanie, B&B) was egregiously not nominated this year - although she will be coming to the luncheon. Unfortunately, Maura West (Carly, ATWT) cannot attend. I'm very bummed out about that. Maura West is my pick to win it this year. She's such a great actress, and she really needs one of these golden tchotchkes.

I have an entourage of nine people coming with me to the Emmys. My family and a few friends want to attend with me. I said to them, "Don't you want to be comfortable at home in your PJs watching it on TV?" But they were like, "No, no, no. We want to be there to support you!" I think that's lovely, but at the same time I gotta make sure my entourage is being taking care of. [ Laugh] I'm extremely close to my family, so whatever they want comes first always.

I have not chosen my dress yet. I guess some women choose it weeks and weeks in advance. I sort of leave it to the last minute, just like when I go out at night. I never really know what I'm gonna wear; I kinda just throw something on. But it seems that these awards shows nowadays are more about the outfit, so I better get crackin'.

Talk to you after the Emmys!
