Troubles for celeb chef Robert Irvine

There’s a fascinating story in the St. Petersburg Times about chef Robert Irvine stretching the truth about his resume. (Robert Irvine stars in Food Network’s “Dinner: Impossible.”) A few of the allegations:

  • He’s not a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order
  • He’s not friends with Prince Charles
  • He didn’t really work on Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s wedding cake
  • He doesn’t exactly have a bachelor’s of science
  • He hasn’t cooked in the White House

And here’s the follow-up story with reactions from bloggers, execs, etc. And another story about abandoning plans to open two restaurants in Florida.
