Paula Deen To Anthony Bourdain: Get a Life
|Don't mess with a southern lady.|
In an interview in TV Guide, Bourdain called Southern Belle and butter aficionado Paula Deen "the most dangerous person in America", partly for her "Lady's Brunch Burger", which is decorated with bacon and a fried egg and served on Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts.
Maybe Bourdain is off his meds this week, because on his Twitter page he rants a whole shitload of stuff about Deen's Ladyburger, the troops, fried butter and wanting to decapitate Ronald McDonald. Now we totally agree with Bourdain on all counts, as we always do (even when he goes overboard, he's still funny. Hell, when he goes overboard we like him more).
Ms. Deen, however, didn't find his latest comments that amusing. The New York Post's Page Six reports that Deen told them exclusively, "Anthony Bourdain needs to get a life. You don't have to like my food, or Rachael's, Sandra's and Guy's. But it's another thing to attack our character. I wake up every morning happy for where I am in life. It's not all about the cooking, but the fact that I can contribute by using my influence to help people all over the country. In the last two years, my partners and I have fed more than 10 million hungry people by bringing meat to food banks."
As for Bourdain, if he lays off Ms. Paula for a while, there are always the other stars of Food Network. And while Paula (with or without the assistance of her sons and husband, Michael) could probably kick Tony's ass in a fight, we're sure he could take down Sandra Lee.
Anyway, here's Paula making her Lady's Brunch Burger. She is kinda awesome.
