Kate Gosselin made her first awards show appearance ever, hitting the red carpet in a chic black Carmen Marc Valvo halterneck gown at the Emmys Sunday in Los Angeles.

Asked how she got ready for the red carpet, she told Access Hollywood, “I’ve been running. Five, six miles everyday.”

“From whom?” she was asked.

“Stress,” she replied. “Just… stress.”

As for her hair, the mom said: “Honestly, I can say this is the first time I’ve had an updo since I’ve had long hair. It’s really exciting – I just sat in the chair and said ‘put it up.’”

Gosselin, 35, is rumored to be making an appearance on the show with host Jimmy Fallon.
