Katherine Heigl’s ShoWest wardrobe malfunction

Katherine Heigl At ShoWestKatherine Heigl nearly showed off more anatomy than she wanted to while accepting the award for Female Star of the Year at the ShoWest awards in Las Vegas last night. During her acceptance speech, a strap on her dress detached from the back. She gasped in surprise, grabbing it just in time to keep from flashing the audience. Host Billy Bush quickly stepped forward to hold the strap in place while she completed her speech. Heigl was chosen for her post-Grey’s Anatomy work in feature films such as 27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth. “Her ever-present charm and innate talent have made Heigl’s transition from TV screen to silver screen seemingly effortless,” said Robert Sunshine, co-managing director of ShoWest. “Her comedic timing and flair for acting are showcased in each of her roles and have captivated audiences around the globe.” Other ShoWest award recipients were Avatar‘s Sam Worthington as Male Star of the Year; The Hangover director Todd Phillips for Filmmaker of the Year; Zack Galifianakis as Comedy Star of the Year; Vanessa Hudgens for Female Star of Tomorrow; Alex Pettyfer for Male Star of Tomorrow; and Amanda Seyfried as Breakthrough Female Star. The Lifetime Achievement Award went to producer Jerry Bruckheimer. ~Alexandra Heilbron

    Hi Mandee,how have you been feeling? I hope things go well for you on the 22nd,hope you get in the program!Now about the article,I liked her in the movie with Seth Rogen,the one when she gets pregnant with his child after a one night stand,its pretty funny.The other movie I liked was The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler,and 27 Dresses was also good.I’m pretty sure she had blond hair in those movies,either that or I have the wrong actress,lol.Take Care and good luck on the interview!

    I also liked her with the blond hair rather than the dark.It looks like she lost weight also.Hi Nancy,hope you and the family are doing good!I miss talking to you,mandee and tributegirl!Feb and March are usually very depressing to me personally,many family members passed in these 2 months,not this year,but their anniversary’s are!Thanks for asking,I usually just sleep,cry and eat so I don’t come on much!I figure I put 30lbs on so far,and its much harder to lose when you get my age LOL! Wasn’t she in Zack and Miri make a Porno,I think it was Katherine that starred with Seth Rogen in that movie also? You 3 girls Take Care!

  9. mandee • March 22, 2010 @ 1:24 AM

  10. Marcell • March 22, 2010 @ 9:28 AM

    She looks better being blonde.

  11. gypsy • March 22, 2010 @ 10:13 AM

    Thanks Mandee,I appreciate your kind words.Good luck on your interview today!Take Care!

  12. mandee • March 22, 2010 @ 11:02 AM

    thanks. i dont know if i think it went well or not. she kept telling me my answers were great. at the end of the interview though she told me she will call and tell me next week. generally when they say that doesnt it mean that you are not in? im not sure with schools because ive never applied to any i havent gotten in lmfao. (i just couldnt afford the costs of the schools i got into so i never went, was unable to get loans or anything.) i was told right away that i was in they just needed the money. 🙁 im not sure what to think. im going to be mad though because i already bought scrubs.

  13. tributegirl • March 22, 2010 @ 4:10 PM

    Think positive, mandee!!!

  14. mandee • March 22, 2010 @ 5:54 PM

    thanks, i actually have a meeting next week with the woman that pays for me to go. i thought it was unusual she called the day of my interview, so i asked her if they told her i was in and she said no they dont tell her i bring in the paper work once im in. turns out it was just a coincidence lol. she said as far as she is concerned there is no reason they wouldnt take me and if they dont ask them why not because the only way they can turn me down is if im physically incapable of doing the work or if im sick or if im missing something i need to do it. but i have it all so we will see. ill keep you all updated. how are you btw? its been a while since youve been on!

  15. tributegirl • March 22, 2010 @ 6:34 PM

    I know, busy as usual, hockey tournaments, etc, hockey is almost over, then it’s baseball season! It’s hectic, but I love it, wouldn’t have it any other way. So my computer time has been very limited lately!
    Well, I think it’s awesome you are looking into this and taking the steps necessary, I expect by September you will be getting the education you need to get into a great career! Way to go!!!

  16. mandee • March 22, 2010 @ 7:26 PM

    thanks, i cant wait to get this all started. i spend a lot of time feeling useless and like my life is going no where, this will def help make me feel better lmfao. im glad you are keeping busy 😀 i cant wait til i have kids and i can spend time going to their games and stuff. i love doing things with kids, my niece doesnt wanna do much anymore. i used to take her ice skating, rollar skating, swimming, bike riding, for walks to the lake, to the movies, shopping, out to eat, EVERYTHING. now she basically doesnt do any of it. we have been going for a bike ride the last few days, just not last night or today because last night i was at the hosp with my brother and today its pouring rain out lol. im glad to hear youre not sick or anything. 😀
