Ina Garten »
On an episode of Barefoot Contessa that aired back in April of 2009, Ina Garten broke into her friends Frank & Stephen’s house and filled their fridge with food so they’d have something to eat when they got home from France. I wrote a brief recap of the show, and couldn’t help but comment on how truly hideous Frank & Stephen’s house was. It was filled with depressingly drab furnishings, creepy old-fashioned portraits, boring white walls, and gaudy antiques. It reminded me of a funeral parlor from the 18th century, and I’m not joking when I say that the home’s ugliness stayed with me for months after the episode ended.
Well. Imagine my shock and horror while watching the DIY network last night, when all of a sudden STEPHEN DRUCKER appeared and started offering commentary about a renovation project. It wasn’t so much his striking resemblance to Beavis that frightened me to my core, as much as it was the title under his name: “EDITOR IN CHIEF, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL.”
Excuse me? The guy who lives in an even gayer version of Elvira’s lair is the editor in chief of HOUSE BEAUTIFUL?
Irony, party of 1, your table is ready.
