Food Network Tidbits

First off, last week I became a married woman. Mr. Armchair Cook and I semi-eloped near our home in Hawaii and spent the weekend on a mini-honeymoon on a neighbor island. We just got back and I haven't even watched the Next Food Network Star episode from the weekend! Thank goodness for TiVo, the web, and my dedicated readers who keep me updated on all things Food Network!

The web is abuzz with the news that Guy and Reggie are the last two standing on The Next Food Network Star! I'll do a full writeup tomorrow, but who are you voting for? Leave me a comment and let's see who the frontrunner is!



Last month I reported that Sandra Lee would be cohosting a prime time cooking competition with Alan Thicke. After seeing a few Sandy-less commercials, I went to the official Celebrity Cooking Showdown website, and she is nowhere to be seen. Even this article dated yesterday still lists Sandra as co-host. I wonder what the scoop is?



Going back even further, in January I posted my $0.02 regarding the seemingly endless speculation about Michael Chiarello's sexuality. Yesterday, someone claiming to be M. Chiarello himself commented on that post. Could it be him? I found a comment on another blog from 2004 from someone with a similar writing style also claiming to be M. Chiarello. We may never know for sure, but I still love his show and still think he's too sexy for words.

congratulations!! :) I'm glad you are back. And that the author of the blog MC Gay? Also left his thoughts as well. :)

Armchair Cook said...

Doh! Didn't even notice that. MC Gay sounds like a rap star.

At any rate, I hope the real Chiarello has better spelling and grammar skills!

My vote is for Guy GUy Guy!

Meg McG said...

Congratulations!

I looked at the Food Network voting site--too bad you can't cast a vote for neither! These guys aren't cooks. They're clowns.

Congratulations on your big day! I wish many happy years! I am so jealous that you are in (?) Hawaii..or at least honeymooned there. I wish I was!

As far as the Next FoodNetwork Star, I really don't have an opinion about it. I haven't been following, so I haven't really gotten to like/dislike anyone.

Wow, Michael Chiarello himself, huh? I kinda wonder if someone famous like that would actually scour the internet looking for anything someone writes about him. Well, Michael if you do and you're reading this...I think you're awesome and I totally knew you were straight. *wink* Love the show too! lol

Congrats on your nuptials How awesome!!!

I can't stand either of the two finalists for the "next" food network star. They make the clowns of the Hearty Boys look good. I can't believe this is the best of the best. I wish they both could lose.

Guy...oh ma guy...this boy is hot, he makes cooking the hippest thing that even I could do. Are you kidding? Danielle and Sharonz...if you could do better, under so much incredible pressure to show all your stuff in 10 minutes or less, do you think you could do better?!

They didn't say they could better. Like me they were probably hoping the Food Network could do better.
