I didn’t actually watch Letterman last night, but the AP has a recap of Jerry Seinfeld‘s appearance, where he ended up talking about the controversy over his wife’s cookbook. “The books came out at the same time,” Seinfeld said of his wife’s Deceptively Delicious and Missy Chase Lapine‘s The Sneaky Chef, which actually came out six months ago. “So this woman says, ‘I sense this could be my wacko moment.’ So she comes out… and she accuses my wife. She says, ‘You stole my mushed-up carrots. You can’t put mushed-up carrots in a casserole. I put mushed-up carrots in a casserole. It’s vegetable plagiarism.'”
You know, the whole thing seemed to be going so smoothly, just about to vanish into the woodwork, really, and then Seinfeld has go and call Lapine a “wacko” on national television. And, now that I think of it, wasn’t the last time he was on the show the one where he cleared a space for Michael Richards to apologize to America for his racist invective? Maybe Larry David can get hit by a scandal next, and Seinfeld can come back on the show to defend him!
