Here is some recent news involving Food Network
shows and chefs/personalities from the Food Network:
- Jeff Mauro was recently selected to play Shoot the Puck at a Chicago Blackhawks game. (Link)
- Someone put up Craigslist ads hoping to cast Ina Garten and Guy Fieri look-a-likes for a rap video in New York City. The concept is a cooking show that erupts into a party scene. The Ina ad says no nudity but possibly a bikini shot. (Ina ad, Guy ad)
- Giada De Laurentiis has a new boyfriend, who is technically still married (going through a divorce), and they were caught kissing at a Houston bar. (Link)
- Guy Fieri did a long interview with GQ where he talks about feeding his turtle dog poop and talking some trash on Anthony Bourdain for always making fun of him. The article was written by Drew Magary, who won an episode of Chopped.
- A clip of Guy Fieri signing a Lean Cuisine and throwing it into a crowd has gone viral this week. (Link)
- Cat Cora and her wife filed for divorce after being together for 17 years (married for about 2). Cat filed for joint custody of their sons, while her wife wants full custody, so it appears there will be a custody battle. They have four sons together, and three were carried by her wife Jennifer and one was carried by Cat. (Link)
- Alex Guarnaschelli is trying her hand at some comedy and recently did a show at Caroline's in New York City (Link). Food Network stars such as Bobby Flay, Katie Lee, and Anne Burrell were in attendance to support her (pictured above).
- Marc Murphy recently opened a new restaurant in Tampa called Grey Salt, which is in The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa. (Link)
