Last night, the Lupus Foundation of America held its Butterfly Gala to honor leaders of fashion and media. There, we ran into Today host (and sometimes Food Network personality) Al Roker, along with his wife, ABC News’s Deborah Roberts. And of course we wondered what Roberts thought of the noodle portrait of her husband that P.F. Chang’s recently commissioned. “Oh boy. I know nothing about that,” Roberts told us. “A noodle portrait?” Yes, we assured her. Looks just like him, we said. Turns out the likeness doesn’t matter: The portrait won’t be hanging up in the Roker-Roberts house anytime soon. “The noodle portrait will never be coming into our home,” Roberts said. “Forget it.”
