There are few things in life I look forward to more than my annual Emmy red carpet run-in with the inimitable Lisa Edelstein. (Don’t judge me.) And this year’s encounter did not disappoint. Not only did Ms. E take her strongest pro-Huddy position to date, but she defended Cuddy’s right to “branch out” while Dr. Crabbypants gets his act together, and then ended the interview by essentially calling me a hypocrite! What’s not to love? See for yourself after the jump.
