Yeah, the normies like you and I (unless your family is famous). I'm not going to get spotted at a party and offered a cooking show. Even if I become a pro chef I won't.

Giada's cute enough, I suppose, but her head is enormous. We call her by her Indian name, 'Little Big Head'. I hope this doesn't get my hand slapped. I mentioned something equally benign once about another FN star, and was hit from about six sides by the moderators - and it was someone I liked for the most part. I haven't voiced opinions on topics like this since. I didn't feel as though they approved of them.

The food forum on the Food Network site and others became a place for trashing the FoodTV personalities. We don't want that to happen here so we keep a tight rein on that type of talk.

Remember the old saying our moms kept repeating, "If you can't say something nice..."

Yeah. The human body has 32 teeth. If you don't have all of yours, or are accustomed to others who are missing some, I imagine a full set may be frightening.

I love absolutely love Giada! I've met her twice during her book signings at Williams-Sonoma. There is nothing negative I can say about Giada. The first time I met her she was so gracious and kind. Oh yeah....both her cookbooks are awesome too.

I think we're all beautiful..........in our own way. Personally, I wouldn't want someone to point out my imperfections or their idea of imperfections I have. Sorry guys but I have to say, "If you can't say anything nice then you shouldn't say anything at all". Remember that could of been you on the other side of that camera if your life were different. This world is ugly enough without us making it uglier. Why not point out a positive in her. Her passion of food is contagious.
