Haute Event: Actress Jane Lynch Hosts Charmin “Go Nation” Event in Times Square

Actress Jane Lynch, best known as the meanie Sue Sylvester on Glee, was out doing the opposite of what her character normally does on the show. She brought smiles to faces in Times Square Wednesday as she crowned Alabama’s Iris Hill Queen of Go Nation.  It was the culmination of a two-month long nationwide search to find the Charmin Go Nation King or Queen of the Throne.

Lynch, who has been nominated for a Golden Globe for her role on Glee, told reporters, “I always enjoy a little healthy competition during the television awards season, but I’m looking forward to being on the judging side of this competition today.” Iris walked away with a $50,000 prize and will preside over the Charmin Restrooms for the last few days of 2010. Her main job will be to greet and welcome visitors and their families to New York City.
