Katherine Heigl should be very much thankful for having a celebrity reporter near her.
While accepting her award for Female Star of the Year at the ShoWest awards, her dress fell apart and nearly caused a total wardrobe malfunction. Thankfully reporter Billy Bush quickly rushed to her side and held the strap while she made her acceptance speech.
The “Grey’s Anatomy” star, who will no longer be appearing on the show, was able to finish her speech, and later on Bush’s helpful hand was replaced by a pin so she can pose for the cameras.
After the near-miss wardrobe malfunction, Bush took over Twitter and summarized the night’s events: “Oh my, hosting showest awards in LV. Heigl comes up to get award, dress strap breaks…I hold her top on while she accepts!”
Earlier that evening, Robert Sunshine, managing director of ShoWest, said that Heigl has “ever-present charm and innate talent,” and these were put to a test when she took the stage to accept her award.
The ShoWest Awards is thrown annually by the National Organization of Theatre Owners. This year the awards show was held in Las Vegas.
