That’s okay, no one wants to know about it anyway… right? While the DUI was not discussed, Ty, who I have to say is a ton of fun, had no problem talking about another set of initials — ADHD. My “Quick Chat” with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition host is on newsstands now. I am so lucky — his publicist is really happy with the piece, and I get to see him again next month! In other news, I got a gold record–style invitation to Fashion Rocks during Fashion Week. I love Fashion Week — and I love that it happens twice a year! Fergie, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Jennifer Lopez, Maroon 5, Martina McBride, Carrie Underwood, Usher and Aerosmith will be performing. Aww, yeah…
