Cat Cora

The DUI Mug Shot

(Well Done)

7/11/2012 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0711_cat_cora_mug_shot_wm_tmzTMZ has obtained Cat Cora's mug shot ... taken 11 days after the celebrity chef was arrested for DUI in Santa Barbara.

The Food Network chef was popped for drunk driving on June 17 -- after she rear-ended another vehicle ... and proceeded to call the people in the other car "nerds."  Cops say her blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

Cat was released hours after she was arrested ... but never took her mug shot.

But on June 28, Cat returned to the station to take her make up photo ... and it's pretty damn good as far as mug shots go.

Cat has since apologized for the arrest -- saying, “I deeply regret my decision to drive that evening after my designated driver became unavailable. I learned a very important lesson from this experience and take full accountability for my actions.”

Like we said, the mug shot's not bad at all ... so we gotta ask ...

There's is a disgusting level of arrogance that Drunk Drivers possess, and honestly, TMZ, by having the "would you do her" voting box minimizes the bad behavior. I am not a prude and most things don't offend me, but DUIs and those who engage in them (she was TWICE the legal limit), should be scolded and shamed. She's disgusting and I really dislike her now, and while you can post news about her because of her celebrity chef status, you most certainly should not downplay the seriousness of Driving Under the Influence. Shame on Cat Cora, and shame on you, TMZ. Would I? Surely you're asking if I would fine and imprison? Then, yes.

I have no idea who she is but she looks like Julie Benz. Therefore she gets two thumbs up for yummy sexiness... and two middle fingers up for drunk driving.

Ahh, Julie... sighhhhh... I'll watch some "Dexter" now...

What! What is wrong here? She is drunk, gets in her car and drives, DRUNK! Sick stupid little bitch!
She should go to jail and not get a free out of jail card!
She should be treated like anyone else with driving under the influence! Shame on her!
So, So SAD! MADD! Let alone what is the connection with the last name's? Is she married to her Sister? What gives with that?! No wonder she is not working on Iron Chef!
