DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Felicity Huffman opted for supreme comfort when she made an early-morning appearance on ELLEN DeGENERES' chat show on Monday (19SEP05), by wearing her pyjamas.

Huffman, who picked up her first ever Emmy Award on Sunday (18SEP05), was one of a handful of guests on DeGeneres' live post-ceremony show this morning. And while she was thrilled with her win the night before, she didn't bother dressing up for her sunrise talk show appearance, and left immediately after her interview was over to take her children to nursery.

Megan Mullally limped out onto the show on crutches, after sustaining an injury to one of her legs, while Blythe Danner made a more energetic entrance when she danced her way onto the stage.

And Emmy-winning LACKWANNA BLUES star S Epatha Merkerson got a chance to redeem herself later on in the show, when she was given the opportunity to read out the speech she'd lost last night, after placing it in her cleavage for safekeeping.

She explained, "It was stuck on me in the bodice of the dress. I usually keep a $20 in there just in case I need a cab, or anything."
