Last month, Around The World In 80 Plates host Cat Cora was busted for driving under the influence. After rear-ending a vehicle in Santa Barbara, the celebrity chef failed a sobriety test. In fact, Cat Cora blew a 0.20 on the breathalyzer — more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. Keep reading to learn more about the arrest and Cora’s subsequent reaction.
An arrest for DUI can certainly have a negative effect on a celeb’s career, but as Keanu Reeves and David Hasselhoff have proven, it doesn’t necessarily mark the end. Cat Cora must be hoping that she’ll bounce back from her recent DUI arrest, because she’s certainly on damage control at the moment. The celebrity chef and host of Around The World In 80 Plates recently apologized for for her behavior in a statement to Access Hollywood. “I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable. I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions. This will never happen again.”
Cat Cora didn’t sound so contrite earlier, when another driver turned the camera on her soon after the accident. She told the camera, “I’m being video taped by two nerds who don’t wanna have … go have dinner together or do something exciting with their lives.” Oh snap! Nothing like a half-hearted insult from a drunken celeb!
Let’s just hope Cat Cora actually meant what she said about learning “a very important lesson.” It would be a shame to see her become yet another celebrity constantly traipsing in and out of jail for DUIs and other similar charges.
