Tina Fey seems to be embracing the mantra that says the best way to get over an embarrassing situation is to laugh about it.

That's what the "30 Rock" star is doing, at least when it comes to handling her recent wardrobe malfunction at Sunday's Primetime Emmy Awards.

Fey apparently suffered a "nip slip" as she accepted the best comedy writing award alongside Tracey Wigfield during the ceremony.

But suffering an embarrassing moment in front of millions of TV viewers isn't going to stop Fey, 43, from poking fun at the accidental exposure.

In a series of promos with "Saturday Night Live" star Kenan Thompson, Fey promises viewers she won't have another Emmys-style malfunction when she hosts the sketch show's upcoming season 39 premiere.

"It's under control," Fey says, as she raises her arms, revealing her blurred-out bare chest beneath her blazer.

"Forgot my shirt," she adds, as Thompson looks on wide-eyed.

Fey is no stranger to "Saturday Night Live." She served as head writer of the series from 1999 to 2006.

The season premiere of "SNL" airs Sept. 28 on NBC, with Fey as host. Arcade Fire will serve as the night's musical guest.
