Tracy Morgan Discusses Fear Of 'Whitney Houston Syndrome'

Tracy Morgan just received his first Emmy nomination (for playing his not-so-different alterego Tracy Jordan on '30 Rock,' which received 22 nods) and Wednesday night he told David Letterman about how he will avoid "Whitney Houston syndrome" should he win.

"You win awards and you just get in trouble," he said before discussing the fate of Houston's Grammy for 'The Bodyguard.' "If I win an Emmy I'm going to glue it on top of my refrigerator. So if I get in trouble and I want to sell my Emmy, I've got to sell my refrigerator."

We'll find out whether Tracy will take home an Emmy on September 20.
