Emmy Parties Rock Hollywood
September 19 , 2005

Sure the Emmy Awards are entertaining, but one of the most exciting parts of TV’s biggest night is what happens after the show -- the parties! And the place to be on Sunday night was the landmark Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, where "Extra" teamed up with TV Guide and Inside TV to throw the biggest, hottest Emmy blowout ever!

Dove chocolates satisfied the stars’ sweet tooths, and LipFusion helped guests pucker up with collagen lip plumpers.

Stars were grooving as DJ AM spun his magic on the turntables, while Missy Elliot worked her beats on the stage.

"Desperate Housewives" star Teri Hatcher attended the event, celebrating the Emmy win of her naughty neighbor, Felicity Huffman. "We are all so proud of her," Hatcher said. "And you know, we are all so happy to be on the show."

Also at the after party were Emmy winner Felicity Huffman and her husband, William H. Macy. And Huffman was so excited about her Emmy that she wouldn’t set it down, although she did admit that she was anxious to get home to her kids.

Meanwhile, Jessica Simpson arrived solo, without husband Nick Lachey or her wedding ring. And Simpson said that although "Everybody Loves Raymond" won the Emmy for Best Comedy, she is a diehard "Desperate Housewives" fan. "Even though it didn’t win tonight, it is my favorite show," she said. "I love it."

And with less than 48 hours to go before her highly-anticipated dance-off against John O’Hurley, "Dancing with the Stars" champion Kelly Monaco was ready to party like a rock star. She even did a little rumor control for us, confirming that Wisteria Lane might just be in her future.

Meanwhile, back at the Shrine Auditorium, Jon Kelley was inside the Governor’s Ball, where we spotted Eva Longoria feeding her co-star Ricardo Chavira, Nicollette Sheridan beaming by fiancé Niklas Soderblom’s side and Mandy Moore hanging with her man Zach Braff.

Over at HBO’s post-Emmy party, stars including Jason Bateman, Chris O'Donnell, Matthew Fox, Ray Romano and Halle Berry partied the night away.

And at Showtime’s bash, Emmy winner Blythe Danner hung out with her "Huff" co-stars, Hank Azaria and Oliver Platt. And while Platt didn’t win an Emmy, he did get the one and only Sharon Stone to cozy up to him. Now there’s another classic post-Emmy moment to remember!
