Things really heated up backstage at The Emmys as Lauren Conrad and celebs cooked up a storm for charity.

As soon as Oprah Winfrey opened the Emmys,  she was shakin’ and bakin’ backstage because she wanted to help raise money for children’s charities with Bertolli.

Even Life on the D List star, Kathy Griffin hit the tres chic Bertolli booth joking her "signature dish" might come up short compared to Oprah.

"Oprah’s dish will probably go for $14 million and mine, about $3," Kathy quipped

Other celebs ‘dishing’ backstage at the Bertolli Oven Bake Meals booth included Christina Applegate, Hayden Panettiere, Sarah Paulson, Alec Baldwin, Laurence Fishburne, Kevin Dillon and the ubiquitous Ed McMahon.
