The dresses, the diamonds, the drama! Awards season always brings a flurry of excitement to Hollywood — and as host for TV Guide Network’s red carpet specials, Lisa Rinna will be on camera to catch every star-spangled moment at the Golden Globes on Jan. 11, starting at  6 p.m. EST.

“This job is a blast,” the former soap actress, who will also cover the Oscars, tells OK!. “You never know what’s going to happen — or come out of someone’s mouth!”

Finding that perfect glamorous gown to wear on the carpet is always a challenge: Enter Lisa's personal stylist, Jennifer Rade, and L.A.-based designer David Meister, who custom made the 1940s inspired, tea-rose silk jersey dress she will wear to the awards.

OK!: What do you like about this gown?

It’s very Marilyn Monroe. I love the shade and the halter neck. It’s comfortable — I’m standing on the red carpet for hours and the dress can’t have a long train because people will step on it.

OK!: Have you had any red carpet disasters?

Yes! My Versace dress for the 1997 Oscars was made out of chain metal. By the time I put the dress on, I was seven months pregnant, and I broke the back! So, Harry Hamlin, Mr. MacGyver, went down to the garage and got pliers and fit the dress on me.

OK!: Ever been criticized for a fashion choice?

My leopard Jenny Packham dress from the SAG Awards last year. I was going to go with something different, but I listened to Harry — I don’t usually. When I had it altered they made it a little tighter, so my boobs were out there. But I thought, what the heck? I’ll go for it. I stand by the dress.

OK! Who do you want to win at the Globes?

It’s Kate Winslet’s turn. Kate is nominated for lead actress in a motion picture drama for Revolutionary Road and for supporting actress in The Reader. I’d like to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button take best picture; it’s my favorite film of the year. There are a lot of people coming — Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep — who I’ve never met.
