Dana Delany, Ryan Gosling’s Bidding War at Cool Comedy, Hot Cuisine
Given the spirited bidding between guests Ryan Gosling and Dana Delany for a 10-person dinner at their own homes with “Top Chef Masters” Traci Des Jardins and Mary Sue Milliken, the host of Friday evening’s Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine charity event, Bob Saget, joked that the auction was “like a celebrity death match.”
As chef Susan Feniger, on hand to oversee the event’s “hot cuisine,” considered whether to offer a second private dinner, Delany piped up with a possible solution. “Can I have the dinner with Ryan Gosling?” quipped the “Hand of God” actress.
In the end, however, the actors shelled out $40,000 each for separate dinners with the famous TV chefs, and the audience gave them a standing ovation.
