'True Blood's' Joe Manganiello talks Emmy ceremony, but as for his wedding ceremony ...
The couple turned up at a Friday night Emmy Awards celebration hosted by Women in Film and Entertainment Weekly, an intimate bash at the Sunset Marquis hotel in West Hollywood.
Manganiello told the Ministry that he and Marie have had a "surreal" year with his attention overload from playing Alcide on HBO's vampire hit -- maybe their plan to hit Italy and Greece while the show is on hiatus will ease that a bit?
Until then, at least their Emmy itinerary is set, from showtime to the after-parties. "Season 2's got the nominations, and it's their year," he said of cast members such as newlyweds Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin. "We're going to watch on the couch and then head out."
And yes, Joe's seen the version of his recent Rolling Stone cover on which Paquin's been photoshopped out, leaving Moyer and Aleksander Skarsgard in a hot embrace. His reaction? Sending it straight to Moyer, he said.
With the cast members so, um, close, we had to ask: Given his costars' recent nuptials, does Manganiello have the itch to pop the question to Marie?
"You'll be the first to know," he told his partner.
