Jamie Oliver Not Allowed Inside LA Schools
Jamie Oliver, the Naked Chef turned food activist, was forced to halt the filming of his ABC showJamie Oliver's Food Revolution
at West Adams Preparatory High School in South LA last week after he couldn't guarantee he wouldn't make the district look bad on TV.
The LAUSD spokesman cited the unwanted drama and unflattering light Oliver's show cast on a West Virginia school district during the show's first season as a reason why they ultimately denied permitting the reality chef to continue his production, the LA Times reports.
The show will continue to film outside the school, though it is uncertain whether it will generate the kind of hilariously eye-opening scene as the one from the first season, shown above.
