Joe Zee, star of The City and Creative Director of Elle, is in LA this week. He hosted an event called "Hit the Road, Text Later" with Ciara as part of California's campaign to stop texting while driving. (Which, after texting my way up and down the state of California while driving for a month I can attest is a major problem. I'm still amazed I never crashed.) However, during this past week Joe tweeted from a text message that his car was playing office. Then he took this picture of a woman's foot hanging out of a car, while in his own vehicle. Then he took this picture of traffic, from inside the tunnel in which he was stuck traffic. And then this one of a pretty posh Rolls Royce in which you can actually see Joe's side mirror -- all actually texted into Twitter. Yes, this made us laugh out loud. Maybe he should stick to fashion parties since that's a cause he actually believes in? But seriously, please don't crash Joe! Fashion Week wouldn't be the same without you.
Joe Zee is Covering the Emmy's for Extra
Joe Zee's star just keeps rising. After a successful run on The City, Elle's creative director inked a deal to host his own show on the Sundance Channel. Now, he's taking a stab at red carpet reporting. Zee will serve as Extra's "special fashion correspondent"--his segment will air Monday after the Emmy's. And while we're psyched for Joe--we might even DVR Extra!--there was some much more interesting news buried at the bottom of the tip sheet. Stylista--that god awful show starring Ann Slowey--is back this October on the CW. Joe will "make his debut" as a judge, which to us means that the formatting of the show will be slightly different. Or that Extra's PR team has made a huge error. It's a bit hard to believe that the CW would give Stylista another try. Then again, Joe is bigger than ever before, so maybe Tyra and co. think it's worth the risk. We just heard word that it is indeed an error.
