Chewin The Fat

    Vito From ‘The Sopranos’ to Host His Own Diet ShowJoseph R. Gannascoli, the guy who plays everyone’s favorite gay mafioso on The Sopranos, has leveraged his recent weight loss into a new gig. Beginning next month, he’ll host “Chewin’ the Fat,” a radio show about healthy eating, on FM 98.5, WBZB. Using his show-business clout, Joey G. has lined up C-list guests ranging from former Baywatch hottie Gena Lee Nolin to Jimmie “Dy-No-Mite!” Walker of TV’s Good Times. (The radio show has an odd seventies vibe; 1976 Olympic superstar Bruce Jenner is even mentioned in promotions. There is no possible way Gannascoli will not be wearing a velour tracksuit during the interviews.) Each week the show will promote a new diet product for Joey G. and his guests to try. Of course, it goes without saying that we’re waiting for the episode where Joey G. taste-tests johnnycakes. That’s one treat you can’t eat just once.
