Okay, so maybe "know" is a teeny, tiny stretch. Maybe I should have said I "know of" so many famous people.
Today for you, I have two confessions and also a double dose Tivo Alert. I know, I know. I spoil you. Truly.
So let's get started.
1) I watch the Today Show. Every day. Except Monday & Friday because I leave the house before the show even begins, but every other day, including Saturday & Sunday, I watch it. And, I like it. Are you gasping? Turning away from your computer screen in horror? Before you shake your head and erase me from your Google Reader, let me give you a few "excepts":
- I can't stand Ann Curry
- Meredith Viera bugs me sometimes too. Not as much as from her "The View" days. But that's another story all together and I'll share that with you at another time.
A few reasons I like what I see:
- Tiki Barber
Okay, that's just ONE reason, but it's enough. And MORE than makes up for the uber-annoying Ann Curry and mildly-annoying Meredith Veira. Oh, and I like Giada DeLaurentis. And Natalie Moralis. And Lester Holt and David Gregory and Amy Roebuck.
And, the reason I know
of famous people and am talking about The Today Show- Stefanie from Baby on Bored is going to be on the show this Tuesday! She's been battling some major Post Partum Depression lately, following the early birth of her twins, but somehow still finds a way to be funny (she is a stand up comedian after all) and to promote her new book "Nap Time Is The New Happy Hour." So yay for Stefanie!
am obsessed like to watch the Food Network.
Like, ALL the damn time. Serisously. ALL. THE. TIME. Right now, even. Giada's on (see above). I particulary like the regular joe, joe schmoe* shows. Like Food 911, Rescue Chef, Throwdown With Bobby Flay, or when they do the chef profiles. I watched them all. Did you know that Giada had a brother who died? Or that Sandra Lee is ridiculously rich** because she created all these crazy decorating things when she was younger? Or that her parents abandoned her and she was raised by her Grandmother but then had to raise her siblings herself so that's where she got all her Semi-Homemade cooking ideas from? You'd know that if you'd watched the chef profile shows. You would. Really. You would.
Which brings me to another famous person I know
of, Amalah, who in real life is known as Amy Storch. Did you know that? Did'ja? Did'ja?
Anyway, she and her husband were duped into being judges on Mother Fucking Throwdown with Bobby Flay***! I KNOW!!!! How awesome is that? Her husband, Jason, created and edits a food blog, aptly named DC Foodies.****
*Did any of you watch (a few years ago now) The Joe Schmo Show on Spike TV? It was a "reality show" that was completely staged except for this one guy who thought it was totally real. It was AWESOME. If you ever see it, watch it. You won't be disappointed. I promise.
**This claim is unsubstantiated. The profile of Sandra Lee in no way said she was ridiculously rich, but it was inferred.
***This is not the ACTUAL title of the show. In reality, it's called "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" but in this instance, Mother Fucking Throwdown with Bobby Flay works so much better.
****I could TOTALLY start my own blog, called Santa Maria Foodies, but I've actually seen lists where the top rated restaurants in my town were Applebee's, Marie Callendr's and Olive Garden, to name a few. Sad, isn't it?
