What's Cookin' Today Hour ONE:

We're Catching Up with Kris Jenner - America's Most Famous Mom!

Kris Jenner is America’s most famous mom and has been quoted saying, “We’re just this big family with a lot of drama and a lot of issues, and there’s someone here for everyone to relate to.” That’s probably why over four million TV viewers tune into her reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Not only is she the matriarch of TV’s most famous real life family, but she is also the business mastermind behind “The Kardashian Empire” managing the careers of her celebrity kids. Her life is anything but ordinary and she has been thrust into the spotlight holding her own on the red carpet next to her young beautiful daughters, Kourtney, Kimberly, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie. So how does she do it? She'll tell us!

About Kris: Kris Jenner is the star and Executive Producer of the #1 hit television series on E! called Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she also produces three other shows for the E! Network, which star her famous family: Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and most recently Khloe and Lamar. Known also Hollywood’s most famous “Momager” Kris Jenner manages her beautiful daughters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe, who enjoy their own success as television personalities. Kris is the President of her own company, Jenner Communications, and lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Olympic Gold Medalist Bruce Jenner and their two daughters, Kendall and Kylie.

Luca Spaghetti Tells Us About His Book, UN AMICO ITALIANO - Eat, Pray, Love in Rome!

Eat, Pray, Love, in Rome, (Penguin Books), is the charming story of Luca Spaghetti (yes, that is his real name), and how a friendship and book changed his life. Luca is the delightful Roman guide who introduced Elizabeth Gilbert (of Eat, Pray, Love fame) to all of the gastronomic goodies of the Eternal City (Did you know that the Roman pasta cascio e pepe is served best inside a hollowed wheel of Pecorino Romano cheese? Or what strozza prieti is? And that Bucatini is considered the sirloin steak of the pasta world? It’s Luca’s personal favorite, but you’ll have to ask him why.) But it’s not just about food.

UN AMICO ITALIANO is filled with lively anecdotes about life in Rome, soccer, the language (did you know that if you say someone is Acqua e sapone, i.e. water and soap, that it is a compliment? Or that there is an Italian word that can be used both as an ugly and affectionate term? Ask Luca about the correct use of Mortacci tua.). And he includes stories of his own fish-out-of-water moments as a visitor to the U. S (he took Amtrak cross country) and culminates with the episodes in Liz's bestselling memoir, told, of course, from Luca's side of the table. A love letter to his native Rome UN AMICO ITALIANO is an unconventional and charming guide to his city as only Luca Spaghetti knows and lives it.
