Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

For the past ten years, as most Americans are grudgingly filling up their Trenta-size Thermos mugs with watered-down office coffee, Kelly Ripa has been perkily co-hosting "LIVE! with Regis & Kelly" alongside Regis Philbin.

In a little reversal of roles, we put Ripa in the interview chair to find out which Pepperidge Farm snack she considers her edible Kryptonite and why she's so fascinated with one Mr. David Gergen.

Peanuts off no-fly list

Packets of peanuts are in no danger of disappearing completely from airplanes. In a nutshell, there's a law protecting them.

Last year, the Department of Transportation asked the public about a possible peanut ban on planes and other measures it said it was considering to address severe allergies among fliers.

It presented three options for debate: a complete ban on serving peanuts on planes, a ban on serving them when a passenger requests a peanut-free flight in advance, or a requirement for peanut-free buffer zones around severely allergic passengers who make advance requests.

The agency also solicited public input on health risks and the idea of maintaining current practice.
