Anthony Bourdain Has 'No Reservations' About Sandra Lee, Bradley Cooper Or His Kitchen Skills

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 8th 2010 6:45PM
Anthony Bourdain, 'No Reservations'Anthony Bourdain isn't trying to get people to like him, and that's exactly why we adore him.

As host of Travel Channel's 'No Reservations,' we've seen Tony eat anything and everything on his culinary adventures -- and, at least once an episode, we're also treated to his usually curse-laced rants. Consider it the sparkly candle on top of an already amazing Kwanzaa cake. (More on that in a bit ...)

We caught up with the globetrotting foodie -- who'll have Bill Murray on the show's Hudson Valley episode tonight (Mon., Feb. 8, 10PM ET) -- to hear more about his biggest food loves, his problems with Bradley Cooper and why a simple 'Semi-Homemade' cake on TV haunts his dreams.

Now Anthony Bourdain is going after Guy Fieri

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 12th 2009 2:35PM
Guy FieriIt has gotten to the point where I really don't care what the hell Anthony Bourdain cares about anything. I liked Kitchen Confidential (the book, not the TV show) and some of his other writing, but this need to speak out on anything and everything in the food world he finds lame or disgusting or "evil" has gotten old. Now he (and chef David Chang) is speaking out on other things he can't stand, and one of them is Food Network host Guy Fieri.

Personally, I wouldn't bleach my hair and wear those shorts, but come on, is it really worth bad mouthing his hosting and cooking? I love Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and Ultimate Recipe Showdown!

Update: it's actually Chang who made the remarks, but Bourdain doesn't like Fieri either.

In the Anthony Bourdain vs. Sandra Lee battle, I side with Sandra Lee

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 14th 2009 7:03PM
Bourdain and LeeI could probably write something about politics, sex, healthcare, education, or religion and it wouldn't be as controversial as what I'm about to say: Anthony Bourdain is wrong and Sandra Lee is right.

If you haven't been keeping track of the things Bourdain has been saying about the Food Network host, here's a quick summary. Bourdain wrote some unkind things about Lee and her Semi-Homemade Show (and some other Food Network hosts) a couple of years ago. Among other things he called her "pure evil," a "hell spawn," and said "she must be stopped." Ouch. There's also this video of Bourdain at a food festival dumping on Lee, and now Bourdain has written on his blog about his recent brief encounter with Lee. at the premiere of Julie & Julia.

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 13th 2009 6:03PM
Mad Men season 2Here are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Now this is a DVD release week. Lots of stuff for every type of TV fan. I'm definitely getting Mad Men (and I'm going to watch all of the episodes again immediately to get ready for next month's launch of season 3), and I'm tempted to get the season 8 set of Bewitched, though I'll probably wait for the inevitable complete series set. I've never seen The Guns of Will Sonnett, but friends tell me it was good. Hopefully that's on Hulu or AOL Video or Retro TV so I don't have to actually buy it yet.

  • American Gladiators - Season 1
  • Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - Collection 4
  • Bewitched - Season 8
  • Bleach - Uncut Box Set Vol. 3: The Rescue
  • ER - Season 11
