Chefs Can't Dance

Did anyone catch celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito on Dancing With the Stars last night? We did (yeah, what of it): After a pretty clumsy foxtrot, he and partner Karina Smirnoff got a 14 out of 30. The lowest score out of all 13 teams. When judge Len Goodman put up a 4, host Tom Bergeron quipped: "I forgot we even had a 4." Ouch. If Rocco survives tonight, he'll be dancing the mambo. (God save us.) Of course, this sort of whoring (is it any worse than Bertolli frozen pasta?) could only mean one thing: Rocco's new A&E show Rocco Gets Real and companion cookbook launch in October.
