Oxygen.com Features Newly Launched Exclusive Web Series, "Recipes From The Naughty Kitchen With Chef Blythe Beck"

New York, NY � August 24, 2009 � Oxygen whips up a tasty treat every Tuesday with the premiere of its new docu-series, "The Naughty Kitchen With Chef Blythe Beck" on September 22 at 10pm ET/PT. Chef Blythe Beck, a fiery young chef and Texas native, shows off her distinctive sexy American cuisine, her cutting edge Dallas restaurant, Central 214, and her loud and flamboyant staff. "The Naughty Kitchen With Chef Blythe Beck" is certain to cook up the drama both in and out of the kitchen.

Her unparalleled restaurant staff:

� Megan (General Manager of Central 214) � The multi-tasking diva in heels

� Eric "Jimmy" (Sous Chef) � Blythe's "monkey" and go-to-guy

� Emily (Hostess/"Door Whore") � The carefree, spontaneous and "down for whatever" hostess

� Curtis (Host/"Door Whore") � The sarcastic, social, flirtatious host

� Kerri (Event Coordinator) � The country girl who hates health food

� Sam (Cocktail Server) � The single, social and sassy cocktail server

� Robyn (Cocktail Server) - Central 214's queen of cocktails

� Calvin (Waiter) � Blythe's favorite hunky waiter

In the first episode, viewers are introduced to Chef Blythe Beck as she "fires up" her staff and prepares for the clientele to come in to Central 214--giving viewers a glance of just how "naughty" her food really is. Suddenly, Blythe's world comes to a halt when she gets word that the food critic from the Dallas Morning News has come in to review her new menu. Not even a busy schedule of charity events and wine tastings can distract her from thinking about the critic's looming verdict. Viewers will not want to miss what happens when Blythe reads the review and finds out what the critic had to say about her New American cuisine.

In addition, Oxygen.com's newly launched webisodes whet viewer's appetites with an exclusive online series--"Recipes from The Naughty Kitchen with Chef Blythe Beck" (http://naughty-kitchen.oxygen.com/)--that will bring out the naughty in everyone. In each webisode, Chef Blythe Beck and a rotating cast member will demo some of Beck's favorite and "dirtiest" kitchen tactics. Also, www.oxygen.com offers more "dirty little secrets" with all new photos, cast member's blogs, naughty food quizzes and message boards. Fans on the go can also keep up with Blythe and the gang via their mobile phones at http://wap.oxygen.com where they can watch webisodes, exclusive video, and more.
