Be Our Gest: Amuse-Biatch Ponders How Anthony Bourdain Can Be Such a Bitch and Yet Straight


















Well, possums, you've got to give the bitch and the devil their due.

From Anthony Bourdain's blog:

Well, what can I say about last night's episode? I sat down, like everybody else, baited breath, waiting to see who'd do well--and who would have to "pack their knives." I was also waiting to see which Rocco DiSpirito showed up. The breathtakingly-gifted, French-trained chef of three star Union Pacific fame? Or the "thatsa speecy, spicy meatball!" shill-for-hire and ex-reality show personality? I think we all now know the answer to that question. (Though for the first few moments, I thought David Gest had taken his place.)

I am wondering if you read page 2 of A Bourdain's blog this week, because you missed this chestnut:

"There were no winners. Not when everybody, contestants and judges alike, were left wiping Rocco's Frozen Love Juice off their faces at the end."

um...

Oh, I read it, Anon. It's just that Miss XaXa allows me only one bukkake reference per season, and I didn't want to blow it, so to speak, on this.

Oh, dahling, now you understand why I must become the Bride of Bourdainestein. The man makes me swoon from delight with his facile tongue and smoothly killing words.

I loved The Restaurant. Rocco looked better then. He may be slimmer now but the face is weird.

I thought Bourdain's post was rather boring and predictable. He hates Rocco for reasons unrelated to Top Chef and dedicated almost all his column towards venting it.

Methinks he writes better when he takes terse pot-shots at a wide array of targets. And there were plenty of targets. Including sacred-cow (bear?) Tom Collichio who has been inane in much of his commentary this year.

"Sandee, you didn't BARBECUE anything"

"You should be careful when running through kitchen with razor-sharp meat-cleaver in hand"

"Truffles aren't Medi"



Attacking HIM would take guts.

I kind of like Chef Rocco. I have a bit of a crush on him. I'm glad he challenged Tom at the judges table.
