Cooking Up Press

"Cookie Doctor" Sanford Siegal, distraught over remarks Madonna purportedly made on a Phoenix radio show claiming hubby Guy Ritchie suffered a loss of libido from his cookie diet, apparently was compelled to issue a statement to clarify the matter.

In no way are his weight-loss cookies responsible for any decrease of sexy time for Madge and Ritchie, according to the doctor.

"While my cookies curb their hunger for food, I can’t recall any patients reporting that they lower their sexual appetite, too," Dr. Siegal stated. "I mean, seriously, my cookies taste good enough but I can’t imagine someone preferring them to sex."

Neat trick, though: two publicity coups in one by the promotion genius that is Madonna.
