Is Giada De Laurentiis drop dead gorgeous or what?

Who else is obsessed with this girl? The most beautiful creature I've ever seen

I wouldn't call her the most beautiful creature I've ever seen, but she's one of my favorite TV personalities. The only really annoying things about her are that
a) she shows off her boobs and is constantly leaning forward in front of the camera.
b) she didn't have to work her way to becoming a TV chef, they asked HER only because of her family name.
c) she uses the same words to describe the taste of mosts foods.

But she's sweet and always seems happy like Racheal Ray, and if she's not she's good at faking it. So I still enjoy watching her.

We enjoy watching her,too. She doesn't have the best smile, in my (not so) humble opinion. As for the decolletage, well if you've got 'em flaunt 'em, I say. Rachel Ray has been getting a little risque ,as well.
I watch for recipes and techniques, my husband? Well....

Ive always wondered if she eats anything she makes, or anything at all actually! She is rather 'small'.

That's so not true! If you watched her bio, she always loved working with food - went to culinary school - worked in restaurants - worked in catering - established her own successful home chef/catering business. My hat is off to a very tough woman who fought her way up just like the rest of us.

I would not say that she is drop dead gorgeous, but I do think she is very attractive. Her forehead is a bit...ummm...big at times, but I am sure she could find a lot more about me that is just not right lol.

Yes she is a very pretty woman.

Lynan, she has often been asked how she stays so thin. She says she never eats a full meal. She just takes tastes of what she is making.

i used to think she was ugly, well, except what bb said about her camera presence.

but then they've, i mean she's grown on me.

i like her show tho. upbeat without looking too fake, a' la rachel ray. and i get some good ideas from her shows, as a lot of it is standard (true) italian cooking. a mix of italian, and italian american influences.
