Working on our morning show Access Hollywood Live, I get to see lots of stars (and their entourages!) close up. Here's what I learned this year from the parade of stars visiting our set.
EVA MENDES is even more gorgeous in person.
REGIS is the man. He stayed and took photos and talked with the crew for more than 20 minutes after his interview.
SARAH FERGUSON is the nicest celeb; she introduced herself and shook hands with EVERY SINGLE crew member.
JENNIFER LOPEZ has IT. The entire atmosphere on our set was abuzz when she came.
TORI SPELLING brought her pet chicken.
SOFIA VERGARA exudes sex appeal in spades.
JOHN CORBETT is the wildest celeb--he did an impromptu striptease.
KRIS JENNER has great shoes.
J.R. MARTINEZ is a good hugger. Smells good too.
LINDA EVANS brought homemade apple pie--delicious!
STEVE HARVEY'S entourage is the best dressed.
NENE LEAKES is waaayyy taller than I imagined.
JENNY MCCARTHY is always a riot.
DURAN DURAN's Simon Le Bon and John Taylor are huge flirts. Still.
LA TOYA JACKSON is beyond sweet. Yes, she really giggles like that.
CHEF CURTIS STONE stayed after his segment and cooked steak tacos for the crew. Yummy!
