Julianna Margulies Talks Dip, Parties, the ‘Loser Lounge’

Stefan Doyno
Katie's Take

Katie Couric's throwing a potluck party and everyone is invited. And it even featured a guest star: Julianna Margulies.

And when Margulies is not acting as a lawyer on the hit series "The Good Wife," she's making her signature eggplant dip. Which is healthy by the way.

"There's nothing bad in it," Margulies noted, "People don't feel guilty eating it. Oftentimes the appetizers are -I'm sorry Katie but ... caramelized bacon."

Julianna was only slightly judging Katie's favorite appetizers -- which consist of potatoes and bacon.

Other tips we've learned from Juliana? Never say no to a dinner party -- that's where she met her husband -- who had no idea who she was.

"Was he living under a rock?" asked Katie.

No, he was in law school. But don't feel bad for Julianna, he also had no idea who Naomi Watts was either.

Continuing on with the party theme Juliana also shared with the audience her favorite post-Emmy party theme -- Jon Hamm and Amy Poehler's "Loser Lounge" for the actors and actresses who walk away empty handed.

"Basically only losers can go," Margulies said, "If you did happen to win, you have to pay $1,000 to a charity."
