‘Anthony Bourdain Rips Fellow Chefs’
“Anthony Bourdain recently sat down with TV Guide Magazine, and the No Reservations star didn’t pull any punches when it came to talking about fellow food personalities. A few key quotes:
On Paula Deen: “The worst, most dangerous person to America is clearly Paula Deen. She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations and she’s proud of the fact that her food is f—king bad for you...plus, her food sucks.”
On Guy Fieri: “I look at Guy Fieri and I just think, ‘Jesus, I’m glad that’s not me.’”
On Rachael Ray: “Does she even cook anymore? I don’t know why she bothers. To her credit, she never said she was good at it.”
On Sandra Lee: “There was an incident with Sandra Lee where I ran into her after criticizing her publicly. It was deeply terrible. Don’t mess with her. I rarely feel uncomfortable, but she has a powerful force. I hate her works on this planet, but she is not someone to be dismissed, clearly.”
My BF's daughter is a pediatric RN at a world-famous California hospital. One of her terminal patients requested (I believe through Make-A-Wish) that Guy Fieri come and cook his favorite meal with him. Mr. Fieri did not have to be asked twice and went to the boy's room and spent hours in there with him. He wouldn't allow any pictures or any cameras in there either, nor any publicity whatsoever. The child was thrilled. I think he lived another couple of weeks.
So yes, Bourdain, I am also glad Guy Fieri is not you because you are an ***hole and God knows this world has enough of those.
Fieri, however, is a prince.
Yes he’s a mean spirited person. I’ve watched his show and he’s also quite the hypocrite. He’ll shoot guns at Ted Nugents ranch in Texas and love it, then he’ll talk about how he supports gun control.
That he publicly stated those things tells us a lot more about him than the other people.
