Well I couldn't think of anyone who didn't want to watch it. My pleasure.

i just watched what i think is probably the worst "cooking" show that i've ever seen in my life: nadia g's bitchin kitchen.

holy crap it was bad. it was a version of triple d except with a tattooed woman that has a bizarre accent, chipping fingernail polish, and some kind of weird, tough-chick personality.

has anyone else ever seen this show?

I have seen it and I didn't like it at all. Not my type of show.

I can only imagine how that show got on the air, if you know what I mean...

that was my thought as well, k-l, but i doubt they have casting couches anymore.

if anything of the sort is true, she threatened a (false) harassment lawsuit against a producer or director to get the gig. sadly, that's the way things work nowadays in order to make up for decades of gender bias and discrimination. two wrongs apparently make a right.

but i'm just venting. i've had to deal with reverse discrimination my entire career.

as far as nadia g. goes, someone, somewhere must like the show. it reminds me of the old 3am public access cable shows.

She seems to have a following among people in their 20s. She was on Chopped All-Stars once; she went home in the first round.

i guess chips of nail polish in your food is ok when your 20, lol.

i looked up some info on her to try to understand her accent and found out she's from montreal. montreal? she sounds like someone that escaped from brooklyn and ended up trying out an eastern european accent.

to each his own.

Haven't seen her shows, only the commercials. I'd figured Brooklyn/Chicago mix, not Montreal.

Bucky, Nadia G has a new show coming out,
I have it set to record on the DVR...
we'll see how BAD this one will be... it's kinda entertaining, stupid, but it does fill a niche
