This whole lawsuit was pretty ridiculous!
The Chef who lost the lawsuit she filed against Jerry Seinfeld's wife, Jessica, for 'stealing' the idea for her cookbook in 2008 has lodged and subsequently lost its appeal!
Missy Chase Lapine claims that Jessica's book, Deceptively Delicious, "brazenly plagiarized" from her book, The Sneaky Chef, both of which employ the technique of hiding pureed vegetables for kids in their food. She lost the suit in September, and attempted to appeal it on Monday.
Judge Reena Raggi basically told Lapine to shut the fuck up when she said:
"You make purees and put them in these recipes? That's it? I don't think one needs much cooking expertise to know this."
Take the shame, lady, and stop making a fuss because a celebrity spouse figured out how to make money doing something you tried to build a career on!
