    As the mother of three chefs--one a pastry chef, SHAME!!!!!

    Wilson has lived in California, France, Brazil and Texas. Quite a CV. I hope his contacts with children are being thoroughly checked out.

    Little 2 year olds don't "have sex", Peazzzer. They are raped, sad to say. In a case I wrote about a couple of months ago, a detective stated that some of the newest and most vile child porn shows infants being raped just after birth....with their umbilical cords still attached. I don't want to know this. I have precious grandbabies. But we have to bear witness and shine the light on this filth.

    OMG!! :eek:

    I watched that season and thought Morgan was talented, but his arrogance and lecherous/creepy-vibe always put me off. And now to find out he lives in my area...YIKES!

    If these charges are true, then I hope he gets his croquembouche on behind the safety of prison walls from now on. :tsktsk:

    That is one sick, disgusting smirk on that face of his.....
    I was a fan of him on the show.....now I feel so sick.
    It's odd how he was arrested over a year ago but we're just now hearing about it.

    I thought he was arrogant and creepy too. Just shows to go ya, trust your gut.

    He was initially arrested in Dec. 2010. I wonder why it took so long to get out in the news.

    I wondered the same thing Ohio. IIRC the article indicated that there was a grand jury indictment, so perhaps that was the delay. Ducks in a row...
