NBC Hosts "Celebrity Cookout"

ncampbell.jpgHopefully someone will be roasting in hell for this idea. Jam! Showbiz is reporting that NBC has thrown more gasoline on the reality TV fire by approving "Celebrity Cooking Showdown."

Do we care if Ja Rule can roast potatoes? The network either seems to think so or has just stopped caring altogether. Even the "Dancing With the Stars" lineup is laughing at who they are strapping aprons on. Aside from Ja Rule, expect Naomi Campbell, Gabrielle Reese, Miss USA 2005 Chelsea Cooley, Tom Arnold, Tony Gonzales from the Kansas City Chiefs, country singer Big Kenny and Alison Sweeney ("Days of Our Lives") to show off their culinary skills, if any.

The lineup rounds out with Wolfgang Puck, Cat Cora ("Iron Chef America") and Govind Armstrong on hand. Colin Cowie from "Everyday Elegance" is the only one being named as an official judge at this point. Not sure if the others are there to consult, judge or just put out fires -- literally. The eternally young Alan Thicke and cooking queen Sandra Lee will host.

Expect "Celebrity Cooking Showdown" to clog up five nights of NBC programming starting April 17 at 8:00 p.m. (EST) -- Rachel Cericola
