Even though I’ve already mailed Claire Danes the trophy for Best Red Carpet Interview of the 2013 Emmys, another interview has just come to my attention that makes me realize that I might’ve made my decision too soon. While Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic held court on E!, Billy Bush held court for Access Hollywood. Where did he hold court? I don’t know. I don’t pretend to know what Billy Bush does or where he does or why he does it. However I do know that he interviewed Scandal star and all-around beautiful human being Kerry Washington with his pants unbuttoned. And I also know that Kerry Washington had to ask him to put his pants on properly within the first 30 seconds of the interview.
Which — in case you need someone to walk you through this — means his pants were unbuttoned while he interviewed celebrities. When I first heard Kerry ask Billy to fix himself, I naturally assumed that the zipper was just down a bit and she was being some kind of fly facist. But then the camera panned to his pants (because the camera man’s a passive-aggressive hero) and I saw that his pants are very unbuttoned. To the point that he had to have noticed. In fact it’s to the point that I have to assume that he just took a quick piss off camera and had to wrap it up sooner than expected when his camera guy (who we’ve all agreed is his secret enemy) yelled at him that Kerry was coming.
However his pants being undone isn’t even the best part. It’s the fact that Kerry makes him button up before he can continue interviewing her. Because remember ladies, you have to have enough respect for yourself that you don’t let a man interview you on the red carpet until he’s completely dressed.
