Harry Connick: Not my girl

“I know he’s a good kid and I know that his family’s a good family, so that definitely helps,” he said. “And he’s got manners … The last thing I want to do is embarrass my kid or embarrass the boy.”

Connick Jr., a New Orleans native, will be there tonight for the Orpheus parade and the glitzy ball that will follow.

Also slated to participate in the Orpheus festivities are Jim Belushi, Bryan Batt from AMC’s award-winning “Mad Men,” comedian Joan Rivers and the cast of Comedy Contrail’s “Reno 911.”
