In the spirit of the new fall TV season, I give you my interview with the ladies of Pretty Little Liars.  They are a gorgeous group of girls and I had a ball “glamping” with them.  That’s glamorous camping don’t you know?   We chatted about Twilight, what its like kissing a girl and the upcoming season of PLL all while getting yummy foot scrubs.  This is the life!

Check out my interview with the spunky and sexy Fefe Dobson. I remember hearing her music a few years back. She’s been actively working on her follow up album and its finally out this year. In the meantime, she has written and sang back up for Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez among others. This chick is one to watch! She is currently teamed up with the Style Network as their featured artist. I love her sound and her upbeat rocking attitude!  Her album Joy will be in stores soon, look for it!

I’m heading over to Cre8tive Recreation today to see their new womens line up close and personal! Hopefully I’ll snag a pair to wear at the OK mag party tomorrow 😉 If you aren’t familiar with the line, check them out, they are the hottest sneakers on the market.

Amy gets hands on with Trey Songz

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Behind the scenes, Celebrities, Daily 10, TV | No Comments

I must admit there are lots of perks to my job.  I get to meet artists I admire, hang on out sets, wear amazing clothes and shamelessly flirt on camera.  Hey, its all in a days work!  I caught up with singer Trey Songz in downtown LA as he shot his music video for Already Taken, a song on the Step up 3-D soundtrack.  He had been shooting in a huge warehouse all day with dancers from the film.  When I got the chance to talk to him on behalf of The Daily 10, the first thing I noticed was his gleaming warm smile.  Boy can make a girl melt with that I’m-only-looking-at-you stare.  Trust me when I say he’s a total charmer.  I really enjoyed hanging out and playing around with him.  He is sweet, funny and attentive. He was really fun to interview and very, um hands on.  Too bad I’m already taken 😉

Amy celebrates opening night of Hollyshorts film festival

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Daily 10, Press, Projects | No Comments

A kiss from me to you! A friend and colleague of mine invited me to take part in the opening night festivities for the 6th Annual Hollyshorts Film Festival. Of course I said yes as I am a big fan and supporter of Independent films. Any opportunity to meet film makers and hear about how their projects came to fruition is an event I don’t want to pass up. I even got to interview film legend James Caan about his involvement with the festival.  His company Open Films was a sponsor this year.

Before the screening got underway, I had the honor of introducing my fellow Daily 10 correspondent and resident movie buff, Ben Lyons who served as host for the night.


It was a spectacular night full of fabulous film making. We were treated to short cinematic endeavors featuring A-list talent like Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth, David Arquette and Mena Suvari among others.

A few of my favorites included Hostage: A Love Story. As you can deduce from the title, its a zany comedy starring Zachary Quinto. I laughed so hard, it actually warmed my body in that frigid theater! Another great film was part of a series on Funny or Die, called Drunk History. Hilarious stuff.  I have to mention Ollie Klublershturf vs. The Nazis’ as it was a fantastic movie starring pint sized actor Zach Mills as the unlikely smart ass hero . Be on the look out for these and other wonderful flicks featured at Hollyshorts!

I hope to be back next year to check out another crop of creative clips from emerging talented filmmakers!
Enjoy photos from the red carpet as well as a close up of my awesome clutch featuring our Nations First Lady, Michelle Obama, on the cover of Vogue Magazine. Until next time, smile!! xoxo

Red Carpet interview with Mingle Media

Amy gets Hot in Cleveland with Joe Jonas

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Celebrities, Daily 10 | No Comments

I swear my job gets cooler and cooler every day!  I’m always thrilled to find out what my next adventure will be and which celebs I’ll be rubbing elbows with.  I realize I was the envy of tweens worldwide on my latest assignment.  I was told I’d be interviewing one third of the Jo Bro trio, Joe Jonas for the Daily10.  I was super excited to visit him on set of one of the most buzzed about sitcoms this year Hot In Cleveland. Joe is guest staring as Valerie Bertinelli’s son  in a episode airing August 11th.  I was looking forward to watching them shoot a scene of the show, and possibly catch a glimpse of the legendary Betty White.  Alas she wasn’t shooting that day but still I was  delighted to be able to speak withTV veteran Miss Bertinelli.  She was super sweet and down to earth and complementary of my hair, just like Megan Fox.  LOL if I had a dollar for every hair comment, I’d be a rich lady.  Kudos to my fab colorist Autumn Sanders 😉

Joe Jonas was mellow and cool to talk to as well.  It was a little tough to interview him because we were only given 5 minutes and I had to interview them as a pair, which  makes asking personal questions a bit awkward, but part of my job.  Watch how it plays out below. Is he dating Ashley Green!?  Still not sure…  God bless seasoned actress Valerie for teaching Joe how to dodge questions.  I doubt he’d be so tough without his mommy around 😉  I’m only playfully teasing, no harm no foul!  We are excited to have Joe Jonas co-host the Daily 10 on Monday.  Tune in to see if saucy Catt Sadler can get him to dish some dirt!

Amy takes on a Fox, Megan Fox

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Behind the scenes, Celebrities, Daily 10, TV | No Comments

When given the assignment to speak with the ever so controversial Megan Fox, I couldn’t wait to pounce on the opportunity!  I had the pleasure of interviewing both Megan and her co-star Josh Brolin for their new film Jonah Hex.  I got 15 minutes with each during a junket held at the posh Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Josh was funny, down to earth and charmingly handsome.  He mentioned liking my blue nail polish, which I explained was from a shoot I did with Annalynne Mccord for charity and he jokingly teased “What’s next? facials for Haiti?”

Megan was much less intimidating than I’d expected.  She is gorgeous and well spoken but not as tough as everyone thinks.  She was kind and friendly, but not warm. She complemented my hair color which was sweet.  I enjoyed talking to her and I understand her much more after our time together.  It was apparent she has changed her approach with the media due to the backlash and constant scrutiny.  “No matter how comfortable I feel with you, I realize you are not my friend,”  she explained.  Watch a parts over interview which aired over 3 days on the Daily 10.

Congrats to the Mrs. Brian Austin Green!

Amy’s girl talk with Annalynne McCord

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Celebrities, Daily 10, Give Back, Press, TV | No Comments

Annalynne McCord is best known for her role as Naomi on the reboot of 90210.  She’s no newcomer to the acting game having appeared on TV in Nip/Tuck, CSI and Greek and films like Fired Up (which yours truly has a cameo in).  I had the absolute pleasure of catching up with her at Sally Hansen’s Color that Cares benefiting DKMS, the world’s largest bone marrow donation center.   The event aimed to set a Guinness World record for most manicures in a day and was free to the public, in exchange for a quick cheek swab for bone marrow testing.

We sat down for our free Mani’s at Hollywood & Highland and talked about Twilight, her beauty regimen, and her extensive charity work .   Annalynne is an amazing, generous young woman.  I enjoyed hanging out with her and learned all about the many charities she is involved with.  I thought it was so interesting and cool that she believes it a celebrity’s duty to shine light on important issues.   She realizes the spotlight she has is a powerful tool and chooses to use the attention to gives others a voice.  Check out a bit of our chat here:

Amy interviews Eva Longoria Parker

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Celebrities, Daily 10, Give Back, TV | No Comments

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the adorable actress and activist, Eva Longoria Parker for the Daily 1o.  For the second year in a row she is the honorary chair for Rally for Kids with Cancer, a scavenger hunt fundraiser that raises money for different children’s cancer charities.  Eva is a little ball of positive energy and a joy to talk to.  She is passionate about giving back and very competitive.  She won the scavenger cup last year and plans to reclaim her crown this year.  Eva and I spoke about why she got involved, whether or not babies are in her future, and who is a better driver, her or her point guard husband Tony Parker.  Check it out.

Amy celebrates E!’s 20th Birthday

Posted by | Amy Paffrath, Appearances, Celebrities, Daily 10, Fashion | No Comments

Happy 2oth birthday E!  I grew up watching Jules Asner and Steve Kmetko host E! News.  I dreamed of one day sitting behind that desk or going out in the field reporting for E! News.

Flash forward to 2010 and here I am, dream fulfilled.  It is so surreal to put something out into the universe and actually have it come to you.  Many people helped me get here and I am forever grateful.   I am now part of a close knit family of talented hosts and reporters such as Ryan Seacrest, Giuliana Rancic, Jason Kennedy, Ashlan Gorse, Ben Lyons, Catt Sadler, Sal Masekela, Michael Yo, Kristina Guerrero and Melana Scantlin.  It is an honor to be in the company of such wonderful people on and off screen.

In honor of 20 years of pop culture, E! teamed up with Ciroc vodka to throw a party, Hollywood style.   Held on the rooftop of the London Hotel in West Hollywood, celebs, E! execs and party guests socialized amidst a picture perfect backdrop overlooking the twinkling lights of Hollywood.   I put on a sparkly studded white French Connection cocktail dress and brought along my handsome scruffy date Drew Seeley.    We sipped champagne and noshed on spicy tuna, truffle fries and chicken nuggets.  I hung out with my co-host Melana Scantlin as we admired the acrobatics of the aerial artists dangling above the pool.  I had the privilege of catching up with the super sweet and always adorable Jeannie Mai, host of How Do I Look? on the Style Network.  It was a fun festive night of mixing and mingling.  Before heading out to make my way back to E! to finish my duties for E! News Now, I made sure to thank the man behind the brand, Ted Harbert for a lovely night.
