Starlets in peril!

There was trouble on the red carpet early Sunday afternoon. The Golden Globes carpet suffered damage when a sewage pipe at the Beverly Hilton Hotel burst and flooded the area. One of the camera lights was positioned too close to the fire sprinklers and set it off, according to Entertainment Weekly reporters on the carpet.

Red Carpet Guru/Awards Show Ruler Ryan Seacrest gave the following updates:

“What are you smelling?” may be the new “What are you wearing?” on the red carpet. The mess may currently be cleaned up, but a smell remains.
