**Update 2/29/08 — Irvine was fired from Food Network.  Read all about it here.**

I like Food Network’s Dinner Impossible, I think Chef Robert Irvine is fun.  Plus, the premise of the show is entertaining.

But apparently, he’s not who he says he is — mainly he never really actually helped create Prince Charles and Princess Di’s wedding cake (among other things).  The St. Petersburg Times dug up this dirt on him because he’s opening up a new restaurant in their area and a lot of people are unhappy about his business actions.

Now in the age of the Internet, why would you think you could make up something like this?  What makes you think people wouldn’t find out? 

Hmm, not such a fan anymore…
