In a recent TV Guide interview, No Reservations star and Kitchen Confidential author Anthony Bourdain had some less-than-flattering things to say about several fellow food-TV stars, reports the Post. Per Bourdain, butterball snacker Paula Deen is the “most dangerous person in America.” “She revels in unholy connections with evil corporations, and she’s proud of the fact that her food is f–king bad for you,” he groused. Also, “her food sucks.” Okay, then. Evidently on a roll, Bourdain then laid into Rachael Ray: “Does she even cook anymore? … I don’t know why she bothers.” Sheesh, he’s kind of got a point, but somebody sure was feeling more than a little grumpy. Or maybe Bourdain was just rehearsing material for his next book. [NYP, Related]
