I'm not sure how I feel about this:

Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. is bringing in a new celebrity: popular TV chef Emeril Lagasse.

The New York-based media and merchandising company founded by domesticity maven Martha Stewart announced Tuesday that it bought the rights to the Emeril Lagasse franchise of cookbooks, television shows and kitchen products for $45 million in cash and $5 million in stock at closing.

I think I'm scared. Very, very scared.

And to bastardize Martha's catchphrase - that's (not) a good thing...kinda like Raul Castro taking over Cuba.
