Online Auction Allows Buyers To Sleep Like A Star

MINNEAPOLIS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Many people fantasize about sleeping with a celebrity and now thanks to an online auction the public has an opportunity to sleep like one.

That’s because starting Thursday (Oct. 19) Select Comfort beds is auctioning off more than 25 autographed beds on eBay and donating the profits to Ronald McDonald House Charities.

The starting bid for an autographed bed from celebrities like Hilary Swank, Venus Williams and Morgan Freeman is $500 and winning bidders will not only get their favorite star’s John Hancock on the bed label but also receive the exact same model the celebs have.

Some of the beds even have a personal message inscribed by the stars. For example, Swank has written “Night, Night” on her bed while actress Marcia Gay Harden wishes the new owner “Sweet Dreams.”

Spokeswoman Gabby Nelson believes Desperate Housewives’ hunk James Denton’s autograph will fetch the most dough, mainly because he’s in a coma on the show and women want to get as close to him as possible.

The auction ends on October 28.
