Giada De Laurentiis »
Fact: the Food Network turns people into ridiculous, over the top caricatures of themselves (think Paula Deen, Guy Fieri, and Rachael Ray). They start off like normal people… but over time, as their egos grow and grow, they start amplifying their most obnoxious traits and habits on camera to make themselves seem like more of a personality – and you can hardly remember the person they were when they first stepped on the scene.
As it turns out, we can now officially add Giada to that list of caricatures as well. FNH reader coffee-n-toast just sent us an old video of Everyday Italian on Food Network’s website, and we could hardly believe our eyes: no phony grins, no teeth, no incessant over-enunciation, and no boobs; just a normal looking woman who could say “ricotta” without pinching her fingers together and exposing at least 4 back molars.
Here’s the video for posterity’s sake. I for one prefer the old Giada (and the old Paula, and the old Guy Fieri) but your mileage may vary.
