Jessica Seinfeld was on the The View today, and in between bites of "deceptively delicious" food, Barbara Walters asked Seinfeld to elaborate a little on the scandal surrounding her cookbook Deceptively Delicious. Jessica Seinfeld: "I can understand why [Missy Chase Lapine, author of The Sneaky Chef] would've been upset. When you have a huge success, people tend to look for the cracks, anything that would break you down a little bit... She did a book with a similar topic earlier, and it must have been hard for her to see how quickly my book took off... Never as a person would I do something like what I was accused of doing [plagarism]. I mean, I really didn't need to do this book." Barbara Walters: "Well, this isn't exactly a family that would have needed this to feed themselves." Jessica Seinfeld: "Well, yeah". [The View]

@OnionRings: My kids are vegetarians and they've never tasted meat. Sure, there's a lot of broccoli consumed in my house, but there's also no sneaking around or hiding of vegetables.

@scarletvirtue: He also admits that he steals copies of USA Today in that interview. I don't know if it's because that's the paper which was so on top of the story, but you do have to find it interesting that he says that his wife would never steal because she stops him from doing it.
