My driver gave up, said I had to walk the rest of the way. That didn't make it much easier to get to the arena. Despite my supposedly all-access press pass, security officials and Secret Service members kept giving me the run around. Then suddenly I heard a loud, high pitch noise! I turned, and realized it was my buddy from the Chelsea roundtable, Ross Matthews. (He doesn't have the deepest voice in the world.).
He's here reporting for E! News, and gets to interview Michelle Obama tonight. I got to interview him. Almost as good.
Ross pointed me in the right direction, and I finally made it in. So, if it wasn't for Chelsea Lately, I might have never made it inside.
