MY 18-YEAR-OLD nephew, John Armstrong, gasped when I told him that the star of the Food Network's "Big Daddy's House" would be coming to my house to cook us dinner. "He's coming to your house?" "That's right. Big Daddy's coming to our house," I repeated, pausing for emphasis. Yeah, I was name-dropping. But it's not every day that McCargo cooks a meal in somebody's home. Maybe back in the day, but not since 2008, when he became the last man standing on "The Next Food Network Star" and wound up snagging the grand prize - his own TV show.

But Jamie and Bobby Deen, the offspring of Food Network phenom Paula Deen, aren't simply satellites of a justifiably famous brand. They're a hot brand themselves. After helping their mother launch a business that started as lunch sandwiches and grew into an empire, the brothers could have kicked back and watched the revenue flow in. But mama didn't raise lazy boys.

Drunk. Naked. Hooker. Police. Is there a more delicious string of words in GossipLand? Thank Charlie Sheen for inspiring them. The Two and a Half Men star was hospitalized Tuesday for a psychiatric evaluation hours after police say they found him naked and "highly intoxicated" in a room at New York's Plaza Hotel, which he apparently had trashed with actions most violent. An unnamed source tells RadarOnline that Sheen, 45, enjoyed cocaine and the company of a call girl prior to redecorating his room.

There are now two degrees of separation between Oprah Winfrey and South Jersey comedian Dena Blizzard . Blizzard, a frequent contributor to NBC10 (and Miss New Jersey 1995), started work Thursday as the audience warm-up act for the new Nate Berkus show in New York.

Lately, Blizzard has been sitting beside Dennis Malloy , filling in on Trenton's WKXW-FM (101.

WHEN Maria LaRosa starts at the Weather Channel on Monday, the former CBS 3 meteorologist will be reunited with her Penn State pal Jen Carfagno , who's also on air at the Atlanta-based channel. Carfagno, who grew up in Collegeville, graduated from Perkiomen Valley High in 1994, then studied meteorology at Penn State, where she met LaRosa. The latter left CBS 3 in March and gave birth to her third child, a son, Tyler , on May 3. Carfagno, who has worked at the Weather Channel since 1998, works Philadelphia into her forecasts as much as possible and expects Jersey-raised LaRosa to do the same.

NO DEAL HAS been reached, but we hear "Real World: Los Angeles" cast mate Glen Naessens and his brother Mike , who owns Eulogy (136 Chestnut), are trying to buy the Khyber (56 S. 2nd), which is mere feet away. Rumors of the Old City rock club being for sale have swirled for about a year, but nothing has come to fruition. Khyber co-owner Stephen Simons declined to comment yesterday. Simons owns the building and co-owns the bar with Dave Frank . The pair also operate the Royal Tavern, Cantina Los Caballitos and Cantina Dos Segundos.
