    Harris to host Emmys

    CBS says Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the Emmys again. It’s the second go-around for the TV, film, and stage star. He last did the honors at the ‘‘Prime Time Emmy Awards’’ in 2009. The network will air the ceremony live from Los Angeles on Sept. 22. The star of the hit sitcom ‘‘How I Met Your Mother’’ will preside over ‘‘The 67th Annual Tony Awards,’’ for a fourth time, also on CBS, on June 9. (AP)

    Taxing time for designers

    A Milan prosecutor is seeking a 2½-year sentence against the designing duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana for allegedly failing to declare 1 billion euros ($1.3 billion) in income to tax authorities. Prosecutor Gaetano Ruta told a court during closing arguments Wednesday that the pair had evaded taxes on 416 million euros each and 200 million through a Luxembourg-based company. The designers, whose label Dolce & Gabbana is a mainstay of Milan fashion, deny the charges. A verdict is expected later this month. (AP)
