And for her best hosting tip, Cynthia said:  “Make sure the food’s good! Seat people who don’t know each other together and make sure the music is great but not too loud.”

In addition to her night with Saks, Cynthia was all smiles as she celebrated her Emmy nomination on Tuesday, and shared a video flashing her pearly whites in a selfie video. “I MEAN...BEYOND”, she captioned the clip, adding, “She’s Emmy nominated babies!”
