Jessica Seinfeld Helps Some of the Worst Cooks in America (VIDEO)

Jessica Seinfeld Helps Some of the Worst Cooks in AmericaJessica Seinfeld is the wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld. But she has a career that is separate from her multimillionaire husband. She's the author of 'Double Delicious!' -- a new cookbook inspired by her life as the busy mother of three.

Jessica feels that modern families need quick, simple recipes. She's developed the trick of sneaking healthy ingredients into her meals -- as a way of getting her kids to eat their veggies!

On 'Oprah' (weekdays, syndicated), Oprah Winfrey put Jessica's expertise to the test. Winfrey had Ms. Seinfeld teach some of the "worst cooks in America" to make a meal for themselves. One of the worst cooks: A woman named Darlene, who barely uses her kitchen at all. Instead of making meals, Darlene uses her oven to store jewelery and her crock pot to hold her hair products.

The Seinfelds vs. The Cookbook Author, Round Two

The SeinfeldsWell, you have to give her points for persistence.

Missy Chase Lapine, author of the cookbook 'The Sneaky Chef,' is suing Jerry Seinfeld for remarks he made about her on 'The Late Show with David Letterman' a couple of years ago. I watched that episode, as Seinfeld made a few jokes about her, including calling her a 'wacko' and hinting that she might be a stalker and crazy because she goes by three names. As I mentioned a while back, it was obvious that was going to cause some trouble.

Lapine already sued the Seinfelds and their publishing company for supposedly stealing ideas from her book for Jessica Seinfeld's book 'Deceptively Delicious' (both books had similar angles to them). That suit was dismissed.

I'm sure Seinfeld would like any promotion for 'The Marriage Ref,' but I'm equally sure he just wants this to go away as quickly as possible.

Seinfelds cleared in copyright suit

Deceptively DeliciousIt's been a while since we brought you news that Jessica Seinfeld (Jerry's wife) was being sued for copyright infringement and trademark violations for her book Deceptively Delicious. Author Missy Chase Lapine had accused Seinfeld of copying from her book, The Sneaky Chef, which came out several months before Seinfeld's similar book. Both books feature ways to get your kids to eat healthier foods.

The judge said that, yeah, there are similarities between the two books but not enough to prove Lapine's case.

Seinfeld ready for a new sitcom? (updated)

Jerry and LarryRemember last October when Jerry Seinfeld was all over NBC promoting Bee Movie? Well, maybe there was more going on with Jerry and the Peacock people than just honey-related promos. PageSix.com is reporting today that Jerry Seinfeld is in talks with NBC for a new series.

You have to assume that if there's truth to this, the network is probably bending over backwards to secure a new Seinfeld. Heck, if Jerry wanted to do a series about a forensic scientist who also does comedy on the side, they'd greenlight that, too! Will they call it Seinfeld Redux? Seinfeld Squared? Seinfeld Deux?

Seinfelds respond to cookbook author's lawsuit

Jessica and JerryWell, Jerry and his wife have finally responded to cookbook author Missy Chase Lapine's lawsuit.

Lapine sued the Seinfelds after Jerry went on The Late Show with David Letterman and said some rather nasty things about her, including calling her a "wacko" and suggesting she was a stalker (even making a joke about her having three names, like killers often do). This also stems from the incredible similarities between Lapine's hide-your-veggies book The Sneaky Chef (released in April of 2007) and Jessica Seinfeld's hide-your-veggies Deceptively Delicious (released in October of 2007).

Seinfelds sued over cookbook

SeinfeldsBelieve it or not, I'm a little bit surprised by this news: According to The Smoking Gun (via AOL), Missy Chase Lapine has sued Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld over the flap concerning the similarities between her cookbook, The Sneaky Chef, and Mrs. Seinfeld's cookbook, Deceptively Delicious.

Jessica is accused of plagiarizing Lapine's book. But why is Jerry included in the suit? Because Lapine has decided that in the process of defending his wife in various TV appearances, Jerry defamed her by accusing her of being a "wacko" and a stalker. In fact, the suit specifically mentions Jerry's appearance on Letterman where the w-word was uttered.
