A skin tight, leopard print mini dress, four inch red stilettos and a biker jacket is not exactly traditional attire for a commute to the office in NYC In fact Paula Patton looked ready to hit a nightclub or two as she tottered around Manhattan in full make-up on Wednesday But the 37 year-old had good reason to look so glamorous – she was heading for an appearance on the NBC’s Today show.The 37 year-old Precious actress brightened up the morning of weary city workers as she revealed her toned, tanned legs There was no sign of her musician husband of eight years Robin Thicke, who was Miley Cyrus’s partner in crime during her notorious MTV VMA twerking display last month.But it seems Paula could not have been more understanding of her husband’s predicament She told the Today hosts that she was stunned by the negative reaction It was shocking to me. and I was like ‘that was great killed it’, gave him a hug and woke up the next morning and it was like I got all of these texts like ‘praying for you’…..’Hey, I’m here for you.I’m like what? hey, don’t worry about it. What is everybody doing? This is fine And she said her eyes were on her husband and that she barely noticed Miley’s pump and grind performance They rehearsed for three days, Robin told me in advance, I only looked at him I don’t know what people thought Miley was going to do? play piano? the song is about taking molly I just kind of expected it to be wild. I thought it was great The x rated display certainly hasn’t done any damage to the couple who have been together since their teens and have a three year-old son, Julian.
