Emmy Nominee Wants To Wear ‘A Great Big White Bag’ To Awards Ceremony

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – While most of the actresses nominated for the Emmys are fretting about finding the perfect gown, 65-year-old first-time nominee Kathy Joosten is choosing comfort over couture.

Instead of designer duds, she says, “I’d love to wear a great big white bag.”

Joosten is nominated for her role as annoying neighbor Karen McCluskey on Desperate Housewives and admits she’s “walking on air.”

Still, she’s definitely down to earth when it comes to dressing for the event and claims her older figure wouldn’t look good in “one of those slinky things” and that she’s against exposed necks, shoulders and boobs.

“Besides,” she adds, “I don’t have any boobs!”

She laughs at her publicist’s idea of wearing Martin Katz diamonds, saying, “I’m not one of the glamorous set. I’m more Karen McCluskey than you know!”

Joosten may not have a clue what to wear to the Emmys, but she does have two male escorts lined up for the evening: Her sons.
