Seinfeld Blasts Wife's Plagiarism Accuser As A 'Wacko'

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld has defended his celebrity chef wife JESSICA from allegations she stole recipes from another high-profile cook, calling her accuser a "wacko". Jessica Seinfeld's new Deceptively Delicious cookery book, about hiding healthy ingredients in foods children will eat, is already a U.S. bestseller. But the mother-of-three, 36, is facing accusations her recipes are suspiciously similar to those of chef and baby-products mogul Missy Chase Lapine. Lapine's book, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies For Hiding Healthy Foods In Kids' Favorite Meals, came out in April (07). But Jerry Seinfeld insists false accusations are part of being in the public eye. In a comic rant on America's The Late Show on Monday (29Oct07), Seinfeld stated, "One of the fun facts of celebrity life is that wackos will wait in the woodwork to pop out at certain moments to inject a little adrenaline. "If you're any good as a woodwork wacko, you're patient. You pick your moment and then you spring out and go wacko. "There's another woman who had another cookbook, and it was a similar kind of thing. My wife never saw the book, read the book, never used the book. But the books came out at the same time. "So this woman says, 'I sense this could be wacko moment,' so she comes out and accuses my wife. "So now my wife is accused of a Watergate-style break-in at Harper Collins (publisher)."
