Boisterous celebrity foodie Anthony Bourdain is leaving his long-time post at Travel Channel for a new show on CNN, where he will essentially be doing the exact same thing weighing in on dining and culture from around the world.

Tony B gave up smoking due to his wife Octavia who does jiujitsu and likes watching mixed martial arts check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SsY17M5k0jI
Tony did OK with Octavia
His shows are interesting, to this suburban shut-in, because of the exotic locations ... but he’s a grouch. I even read his book, in the spirit of fair-mindedness, and he was a grouch there, too.
Informative international visiting, though. I liked the episode where he and a pack of Sicilians got drunk, roasted dead animals, and fired rifles at random. It reminded me of my relatives in Missouri.
He seemed enjoy his visit to Ted Nugent’s ranch shooting off high powered weapons.
I can’t stand that foul mouthed loser.
I like the really weird locations, like Azerbaijan, or wherever it was that he went with the drunk Russian guy.
Ted Nugent was in an episode of “Miami Vice” that Der Prinz and I watched last night. My goodness, we’re all 30 years older than we were back then ...
The only food show I like is cupcake wars-although I really just like plain cupcakes but it is fun to watch!
Agreed. There’s an element of sleaze about Bourdain that’s actually creepy.
Stopped watching him long ago. If he could just talk about food I could stand him but he never misses an opportunity to interject his sophomoric, half baked, liberal ideology into his shows. He’ll be right at home at CNN and I still won’t watch him.
I’m a Bourdain fan. So shoot me. But not before we get to try the local fare ... and a good beer.
There was a time a few years ago when a certain celebrity chef's face seemed to be plastered onto every cracker box in the grocery store. My kids even noticed that there was no escape from the ubiquitous troll, because the displays would be all over the stores. I explained to them that it was a case of extreme overexposure of a spokesperson, such that 1) consumers would get sick of her rancid smile, and 2) it showed that she was willing to promote all sorts of garbage without any sense of discriminating taste or values, thereby establishing her credibility as less than Zero.
I've noticed a lot of her junk kitchenware piled up on the clearance shelves.

He couldn’t stand the competition from Andrew Zimmern. Tony seems a bit full of himself. Seems like a good match.
“He seemed enjoy his visit to Ted Nugents ranch shooting off high powered weapons.”
I saw that show. #1 he gets his kicks doing it. #2 It gives him conservative credibility so he does it. He has gone shooting in Vietnam and a few other places
