The 45-year-old TV chef failed a sobriety test and blew a .19 on a Breathalyzer test, more than twice the legal limit.

“I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable,” Cora said in a statement to E! News. “I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions. This will never happen again.”
