Law & Order Chris Meloni Speaks - TV Chef Jamie Oliver Dances for Kids
Apr 10, 2010
TV News - Is Chris Meloni (pictured) leaving Law & Order: SVU? The TV star has answered an early February report that claimed he intended to leave the NBC show after shooting season 12. He says he is staying put in an outs his denial in no uncertain terms.
"It's lies. All lies. No," Meloni told Us Magazine.com this week at the Benefit Gala for Figure Skating in Harlem at NYC's Wollman Rink.
Dancing for Kids - Jamie Oliver is trying to dance his way to revolutionizing America's eating habits. The British chef has taken his Food Revolution to Huntington, West Virginia, officially America's fattest city, to try to get them to start eating more healthily.
He set a bet with a local DJ who is his biggest adversary that he would be able to get 1,000 people through his kitchen in a week. To get attention, he arranged a 'flash mob', with dozens of volunteers suddenly dancing in sync and then whipping out camping stoves and cooking in front of amazed passers-by.
But Jamie, who said the flash mob was "to remind people that cooking is fun", feared his dancing skills would let him down. "I'm just worried that as a non-dancing person - unless I've had about 10 drinks - whether I'm gonna be able to do anything decent," he said. But after a great response, he insisted it was "the coolest thing I have ever done".
Jamie spent most of the latest episode of his U.S. TV show trying to persuade local DJ Rod Willis to support his drive. He eventually won him over by introducing him to obese high-school kids who told they may have only years to live - and also by taking him to a funeral home that needs extra-large caskets because so many locals are so huge.
