It’s already well known that Gaga simply adorrrres Art Smith, and it’s pretty much a fact that her father, Joe Germanotta, has enlisted him as the chef of the family’s new UWS restaurant, Joanne. The familial lovefest will continue when she shleps him on national TV for A Very Gaga Thanksgiving, to air on Thanksgiving day, November 24, on ABC. The Hollywood Reporter says the show “will feature eight performances in front of a small crowd by the singer and a sit-down interview with Katie Couric.” A no doubt euphoric Chef Art will be layered into the program, too, along with Tony Bennett.
