A gorgeous and pregnant Samantha Harris was spotted at the Entertainment Tonight‘s Emmys after-party inside the “Dr. Scholl’s For Her Lounge” trying on some footwear for her tired dogs, including nifty Fast Flats for when feet need a break from heels. Fast Flats are foldable flats that come in a cute wristlet and can easily fit in a purse or diaper bag.
