Debra Messing took a break from her prepping for Sunday night's Emmy Awards to toast the opening of Frederic Fekkai's new salon and celebrate The Starter Wife's 10 nominations. She came straight to the Gersh Agency party from Kate Somerville's Emmy Gifting Suite where she had received an "Ultimate Kate facial." In honor of her nomination she wore a dress from The Starter Wife. For the Will & Grace alumna, Emmy prepping is almost like a second job. "Oh my goodness, it's head-to-toe prepping. It's facials, hair cut, hair color, eyebrow plucking, manicure, pedicure and of course the dress fittings and picking out jewelry shoes and bag. This is all today, tomorrow and Sunday."

Also at the Gersh bash, Grey's Anatomy's T.R. Knight said he'll probably spend Emmy morning picking up his dogs feces, as that's all he's been doing lately. When asked if the other cast members are happy for each other he joked, "We all hate each other by now."

Grey's McSteamy Eric Dane and wife Rebecca Gayheart told us they're taking a drama-free approach to getting ready. They intend to sleep in, eat breakfast, get dressed and go. "I'm probably going to take a shower and throw my tux on and head out the door," Dane shrugged. "I think that's kind of what I'm supposed to be doing." - Reporting by Carita Rizzo
