I've never even heard of the show, and I'm always flipping by the Cooking Channel, sometimes stopping. I sure would be put of with basic dishes and orange hair though. Guy Fieri's shows are some of my favorites, and he's a bit out there. I'll have to check it out before I can say.

She(Nadia) just reminds me too much of a pretty version of Andrew Dice Clay from back in the mid/late 80's, just watered down in a much nicer way. If that makes any sense at all.

Andrew Dice Clay was horrible! Definitely MUCH more watered down in a much nicer way. Truthfully, I'd rather watch Nadia G. than Paula Deen, and I am a southern girl! You know? I don't care about Paula's unmarried sons.

The dishes are presented in such a way that a beginner could make them, but are not really what I would classify as "basic." I think Nadia G's recipes would appeal greatly to my nieces who are young adults, but know their way around a kitchen and have a passion for cooking.

I think her humor, not her recipes, put many off. But her humor and character is part of her shtick. Without it, I doubt we would have seen her, and she does have some decent-sounding cooking ideas. Additionally, she is pulling in a different group of young people who may develop interests in cooking - which is a plus to me! :)

Paula shook me ALOT too early on...&, yes, I have been to the southern most places on the planet too - I have "waded" my way through MANY different accents(heck, I even have one myself)...I watch her sometimes, but, I am CONVINCED that she has a clothes pin lodged up SOMEWHERE inside of her nose!

Paula's accent is not why I do not like Paula. (Too many in my family sound just like her!) I honestly am unsure why I do not like her show. Perhaps it is because of the random chatter designed to seem like we are her neighbors. (Of course, that is why so many adore Paula.) I'd probably be fine with it if she did not go on tangents while she cooks to discuss her kids, hubby, trip to the bakery, etc. Does "too off-task" count as an excuse?

I can't handle Paula Deen, I think she sounds fake...her as a person, not the accent. I just find her insincere.

Kathleen, I sure hope that you don't think that I am knocking southerns...I AM one!! I once moved to N.D. for 8 mo's, &, the people there treated me as though I had fallen from another planet..I felt like a 25 cent gumball machine transplant. They were always snickering at how I talked. Paula to me just has a REALLY REALLY thick accent. Sometimes, I don't even know what shes saying.

I think that may ring true with me too regarding Paula.

Since the thread is about Nadia G and Bitchin' Kitchen, I think Nadia was being truthful when she said, "If asked whether I would rather make out with Clooney or scarf a mushroom risotto........I'd make out with Clooney", comedienne or not...I think Nadia answered truthfully.

Really? Pass up a mushroom risotto? Okay, now I know she's nuts.
