This morning, when I first heard that a Food Network star had been arrested and sentenced to jail, I figured that either Rachael Ray or Guy Fieri had finally been charged with prostitution. Instead I find out that the crime is much more severe and that the passion it takes to make a great chef can also turn a rising star into a convicted murderer.
Juan-Carlos Cruz, who rose to celebrity chef status as host of the Food Network show, Calorie Commando, has just been sentenced to nine years in prison for hatching a murder-for-hire plot against his wife, attorney Jennifer Campbell.
