The best way to get over an embarassing situation is to laugh at yourself, and suffering an embarrassing moment in front of millions of TV viewers isn't going to stop Tina Fey from poking fun at the accidental exposure. The popular "30 Rock" actress apparently suffered a nip slip as she accepted the Best Comedy Writing award alongside Tracey Wigfield at Sunday night's Emmys. Her blue, cleavage-bearing Narciso Rodriguez gown briefly flashed her nipple to viewers, but it was nothing a quick adjustment couldn't fix.

Tina Fey is now doing what only Tina Fey can do. As the time nears for her to host the Season 39 premiere of Saturday Night Live, the queen of comedy has decided to spin her now-famous nip slip into a number of hilarious promotions for the upcoming show. In a the Saturday Night Live promos with one of the show's stars Kenan Thompson, Fey promises viewers she won't have another malfunction when she hosts the show's upcoming season 39 premiere.


"Hi, I'm Tina Fey," she announced in one promo, "And I'm hosting the season premiere of 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend with musical guest Arcade Fire.", she begins.

As the wardrobe malfunction is discussed (and as Kenan Thompson begins to suggest that another one would be funny), she insists,"It's under control.", as she raises her arms, revealing her blurred-out bare chest beneath her blazer.

"Forgot my shirt." she adds, as Thompson looks on wide-eyed.

Tina is returning to her old stomping grounds to host for the third time. She was the show's first female head writer and co-anchored "Weekend Update" with Jimmy Fallon and later, fellow success story, Amy Poehler.

According to the LA Times, she left "SNL" in 2006 to develop the Emmy-winning NBC comedy "30 Rock," which was highly successful. It wrapped its seventh season in last year, but she has made guest appearances on Saturday Night Live repeatedly, most famously to perform her impersonation of 2008 vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin.

The season premiere of "SNL" airs Sept. 28 on NBC, with Fey as host. Arcade Fire will serve as the night's musical guest.
