Anthony Bourdain has a big mouth and everyone knows it.
In last week's TV Guide, Bourdain restated his disdain for certain Food Network stars, including:
Guy Fieri ("I look at Guy and I think, Jesus, I'm glad that's not me.")
Rachael Ray ("Does she even cook anymore? To her credit, she never said she was good at it.)
Sandra Lee ("I hate her works on this planet, but she is not someone to be dismissed, clearly.")
Paula Deen ("The worst, most dangerous person to America. She's proud that her food is bad for you. Plus her food sucks.")
So far, Fieri, Ray, and Lee haven't weighed in, but Deen was clearly offended. Last week, through the New York Post's Page Six, she told Bourdain to "get a life," and this weekend, she went on Fox & Friends to continue the fight.
On the show, Deen said she doesn't know why Bourdain started the feud, because they have never met. The only logical explanation: Someone must have "peed in his bowl of cereal."
She then takes a little dig at Bourdain by saying she eats down-home food, not bugs. Then she offers to cook him a meal. Is Deen extending an olive branch or trying to take out Bourdain once and for all by clogging his arteries?
Extending the battle is Top Chef mentor and judge Tom Colicchio, who told that pesky New York Post that his pal and sometimes-cojudge Tony won't be going after him because he's scared of Colicchio.
So after all of this, where's Tony? According to his tweets, the No Reservations star has left celebrity chefs behind, stating, "Resolved. Next time I'm asked (for the millionth time) who the worst cooks on Food Network are, I'll just shut up. Who cares?" So if Tony isn't knocking his television brethren, who's his target?
Bourdain's latest tweet was, "Hoping to wake up and hear Ghadaffi [sic] dead. Numb nuts." Finally something we can all agree on.
