Ellen Cleghorne is one of the celebrities featured in Season 7 of Food Network's reality series "Worst Cooks of America."

As of May 2015, you can refer to Ellen Cleghorne as Ellen Cleghorne, Ph.D. She earned her doctoral degree from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in Performance Studies. Her dissertation dealt with the performance of black women in politics and comedy and the irony of the intersection of race and gender.

While she enjoys academia and plans on keeping active in that community, Cleghorne is eager to return to performing — something she has done for decades. Before she was Dr. Cleghorne, Ellen acted on stage at the Public Theatre in New York City and in films such as "Grown Ups 2," "Little Nicky," "Armageddon," "Mr. Wrong" and "Coyote Ugly" to only name a few of her film credits.

In television, Cleghorne had the honor of joining the cast of "Saturday Night Live" in 1991, where she performed for four years. Most recently she appeared on the "SNL 40th Anniversary" show. Ellen had her own series, "Cleghorne!," and performed numerous times on "The Tonight Show," "Late Night with David Letterman" and "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," in addition to appearing as a guest artist on "In Living Color."

As a stand-up comedy artist, Cleghorne has worked with Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx and Martin Lawrence, among many others. She has also worked as a comedy writer, including on "The Roseanne Show." Currently Cleghorne is working on a book, looking forward to continuing to teach on the college level and returning to acting in film and television.
