Blind Item #1

Unless you fit a very specific type, this female celebrity chef who seemingly has multiple Food Network shows rotating on a constant basis with a variety of c-hosts is probably not going to be nice to you if you approach her. She thinks she is better than you, and unless you are young and blonde, she is probably not going to be real friendly.

Definitely Anne Burrell, always is somewhere on Food Network on some show or another -- Beat Bobby Flay, Worst Cooks in America, etc etc etc. Also barely hides that attitude of hers on-screen; you can tell she thinks she's better than others.

So, Anne has a constant craving for vanilla cupcakes.

Boldblonde said...

Guess she'll be nice to me!

Don Kieballs said...

I don't watch Food Network much - too much temptation to eat as I watch. I had no idea who is current right now and am glad it isn't Nigella Lawson. Not that she's perfect, but I like her

I used to joke with my daughter about how all of the Disney kid stars rotate through different shows, then put out an album.

One day, while watching one of Burrels's countless shows, my daughter said, "Do you think she'll come out with an album soon?"

Brayson87 said...

Everyone should be nice to you!

Anne Burrell, but why would anyone approach her? As long as the food is good who cares about the chef's personality.

People spend more time watching "celebrity chefs" than they actually spend cooking.

Boldblonde said...

In all honesty, I have no idea who she is and don't care to know. Her attitude sounds a lot like Leto's.

Don Kieballs said...

Poppymann - speaking only for myself, it's because I can't cook. Forget Risotto, I just barely mastered regular white rice. I particularly like watching Masterchef Jr, because of all the shame I feel seeing kids with only 1 digit ages mastering dishes I've never heard of.

Undercover_LBD said...

She's like the female Guy Fieri. Ooooooof.

Melvin The Reanimated said...

@Undercover_LBD, even has the same hair!!!

Don Kieballs said...

Most of the bigger chefs have lightened hair - Paula Deen, Gordon Ramsay, even Julia Child had a platinum Blonde fauxhawk near the end of her career. It's the chemicals from the dye that add the extra seasoning to their dishes that made them famous.

Mark said...

You mean blond? Oh, ... blonde. Gotcha!

Don Kieballs said...

Mark, I had to add the e, because English chefs. That was supposed to lend credibility to my lack of a real answer.

MovieBuff said...

😜 Now that’s funny

Youtoo said...

@Don Kieballs - hahahahahaha

Mark said...

Don Kieballs, I was actually winking (😉) at the spelling of blonde -- implying female vs blond, implying male -- in the blind (😎).

@Brayson87 - Bad attitude comes out in the food and makes your stomach sick. Try eating food cooked by someone you know does not like you or was angry at the time the food was prepared.

Don Kieballs said...

SDaly - Sounds like your daughter was blessed with the gift of throwing shade - a very fine art and one of my favorite things to do. But seriously, that kind of quick wit is great and normally from a very smart person. Please don't turn her against me. I'm good, but I'm the older generation. These new young ones are so much faster and cut so much deeper than I ever did.

Few Views said...

I get a nasty vibe from Anne Burrell based on a current spot for Worst Cooks--a contestant who is a black woman says she's adding flour "to give oomph in the thickness" and Anne Burrell and co-host openly mock the way she talks.

Based on that, my thought is that her hair is a cheap substitution for having an interesting personality B-)

Kikibunny said...

Was just telling my bf that this is how women used to kill their husbands back in the day, by berating them before during and after dinner turning the food into poison in hubby's tum..

Kikibunny said...

I won't eat if there are any bad vibes around the table.

@Don: I was trying to teach my 10 yo g-daughters how to properly cook rice at my home. High-end rice cooker, sushi rice (no sugar added though), basmati rice. They both looked at me with amazement. They said "grammie, we just use a 10 minute bag-o-rice that we put into a pot of hot water. Momma said it's great for time-management."

Sierra said...

@SDaly - think your daughter's sentence was too long - according to the blind should be, "Do you think she'll come out...soon?"

Alex Guarnaschelli.
She has multiple shows on Food Network and clearly supports the Slime Bucket Guy Fieri.
She doesn't seem like a nice person and she pings my gaydar.

I like Nigella too. Still make her tomato salad thing when I have the energy. 🥗🍅🌶

Anyway, I've been LOL-ing at your hilarious "I am not a robot" laments and thought I'd let you know that I don't tend to get those on mobile (only when posting from browser). Maybe try that, Don?

Dallas Alice said...

Sierra, Anne Burrell has been out for years.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

*Laptop browser (obviously there are browsers on mobile phones too) I mean.

Hayley said...

@Don that means she'll at least be nice to Eleanor Shellstrop, right? :)

bianca said...

That philosophy always reminds me of Like Water for Chocolate. In one scene, the cook's anger made her rival sick. In another, her joy made everyone at her dinner party horny, I believe even her uptight mother. It's been so long since I've seen it that I have to rent that again sometime.
