Thanks to Twitter, the public is now clued into the fact that some celebrities clearly failed 2nd grade spelling. Food Network personalities are no exception. With all the focus on her big ol’ boobs and over-enunciation of words, it’s easy to overlook the fact that Giada’s… how can I put this mildly… probably not the most scholarly person out there. While nowhere near as mind-numbingly moronic as Ty-Flo, Giada’s made a few very basic spelling errors on Twitter that have made the editor in me cringe. Just when I was about to tease her about writing the word JEM instead of GEM, I noticed this:
Dear Giada, anthropology is the comparative study of humans. You’re thinking of ANTHROPOLOGIE. You know, the clothing store your husband Todd Thompson’s spent the past several years working for. Sigh.
In the past, Giada’s blamed her silly spelling errors on the fact that English is her 2nd language, but I’m not buying it. The woman’s been in this country for 30+ years, and she has a bachelor’s degree in (you’re gonna love this one) ANTHROPOLOGY from UCLA to boot.
Did I mention she’s probably not the most scholarly person out there? But just look at her boobs!
(Stacy wrote in with this tip, and she added: “With all the gems she wears from Tiffany, she should know how to spell it, and while the spelling of anthropology is correct for that field of study, her husband’s only been working for the store, Anthropologie, for like 15 years. She gets many of her clothes from them!”)
