In the hit-and-run case that ended the legal feud between Celebrity Chef Cesar Millan and former MTV producer linear media head, The Dog Whisperer, Cesar used his own camera to film the events. The resulting video has caused a stir and ignited the ongoing war of words. There have been threats of a lawsuit from both sides and legal actions have even been taken in the making of this dispute. Celebrity Chef, as well as the entire brand, are on a tight leash as the war rages on. If either side loses, they risk going out of business and neither seems willing to budge.
One thing is clear, if there is a celebrity chef that you admire, there are going to be plenty of opportunities for you to get their recipe books, cookbooks and everything else they have out there. While there have been some snags, especially with celebrity chef shows on television, the overall concept has been very accommodating and open. It’s up to you to take advantage of the opportunities and to create your own. Just remember that a celebrity chef’s personal life is as private as their personal recipe books. You may never see them again after you learn their secret.
