ROSS THE INTERN JOINS JOEY FATONE, LISA RINNA FOR EMMY COVERAGE ON TV GUIDE CHANNEL

Joey Fatone and Lisa Rinna are replacing Joan and Melissa Rivers as the red carpet go-to team on the TV Guide Channel for the 2007 Emmy Awards. OK!’s Derek Ivie got me the scoop on whether these red carpet hosts are having any jitters.

“I’m a little nervous,” says Joey. “Hopefully I can throw in something a little bit different.” Wonder if the Dancing With the Stars veteran and Singing Bee host will bring a little song and dance to the carpet?

Why do he and Lisa make a great team? “I think we’ll do well bantering and making fun,” he says. “She is such a sweetheart, and we have a lot of fun.”

Lisa let Derek in on a secret: Ross “The Intern” Matthews from The Tonight Show With Jay Leno is joining their team for red carpet and fashion coverage. “I fought for it because I am the one who was like, ‘They should take a meeting with him,’” Lisa says. “I am such a huge fan. He blew them away.” No doubt his trim, new physique will look amazing in a tux.

While Joey says he hates being wrong with his Emmy picks, Lisa is happy to cop to her choices. “I am a big fan of Entourage,” she says. “ I am a big fan of Kevin Dillon. I’d like to see him win even though I think Jeremy Piven is genius. I am a big fan of The Sopranos so I think that will win. James Gandolfini is genius. I am a big fan of so many. I am just one big fan, to be honest with you.”


Catch Joey and Lisa show the love Sunday, Sept. 16, at 3 p.m. ET on the TV Guide Channel.
