TV Chef Accused of Murder Solicitation

Anyone catch this in the news this morning?

Police: TV chef solicited homeless in murder plot - Yahoo! News

Juan-Carlos Cruz used to be the host of Food Network's "Calorie Commando" show, wherein he took popular mainstream dishes & remade them with a lower calorie count. I watched it a few times & it actually wasn't a bad show (so obviously Food Network axed it - lol!).

I know that many of the homeless are eager to work, but this is ridiculous. . . .

I hope the police compen$ated the homeless for cooperating and ultimately saving a life.

The Calorie Commando - a macho name for a coward who tried to higher a homeless man to "off" his wife. A coward, and an idiot. Funny and kinda scary because I actually liked his show!
