Ted Allen Shows Gangstas How to Keep It Real

Yesterday, we wondered whether TV viewers were bored by Ted Allen, but one person who would seem to dig him is Jamie Foxx, producer of MTVs latest reality show, From Gs to Gents. Watch the trailer and, around the one-minute mark, youll see that the shows host, Fonzworth Bentley, brings Allen in to teach the wannabe thugs how to sip wine properly. It tastes like a marlet, says one of them through gold fronts. Actually youre quite right, Allen politely demures. This is a merlot. We find this strain of humor pretty damn tried (one exception: Donnell Rawlings as restaurant critic), but heres hoping this was a two-way education and one of these guys passed Allen a dutchie.
