Pioneer Woman is quickly becoming Food Network’s new “Semi-Homemade”… that one show you watch not to learn how to cook, but simply to laugh at for the sheer ridiculousness of it all.
This weekend we learned that Ree’s husband is an annoying, picky son of a bitch when it comes to food. Everything she serves to him has to be “Ladd-approved” (he won’t eat goat cheese or sauces with wine, for example). Ree said it was her “duty” as his wife to broaden his horizons, so she made him penne alla vodka. Wow, she’s really branching out. Wine and vodka are so similar in taste! He’ll really be fooled! /sarcasm
She made the pasta and the sauce in about .2 seconds, and then summoned him to the kitchen to try it. He took one bite, and then at Ree’s insistence to let her know how it tasted, he hesitantly and weakly muttered, “it’s… it’s… good.” Wow, don’t hurt yourself there, you unappreciative douche.
If there’s anything I hate in life (okay, there are lot of things I hate, but this is up there), it’s people who act like assholes to their partners. This ass clown took his bite of food, then literally said “ok see ya” and walked out the door without a care in the world. No smile… no kiss on the cheek… not even so much as a “thank you” to Ree. He did absolutely nothing to acknowledge her effort (albeit a small effort, but still). I’m starting to pity this woman. And you know what? After 3 short episoes, “Ladd” has already earned the title of “most obnoxious Food Network husband.”
Next, “Ladd” took the kids out of town so Ree was finally allowed to have a girl party and eat the foods she wanted to eat. FNH reader Jen sent an email to us about the episode which summed the segment up quite nicely:
She made a dill and goat cheese appetizer – BY ROLLING A BRICK OF GOAT CHEESE IN SOME CHOPPED DILL. Also, this whole thing is incredibly sexist. She’s really setting gender equality back 100 years by exploiting this ‘manly man’ bullshit. “Guys don’t like to eat dinner outside … Guys work outside all day and don’t want to eat dinner outside.” Is she for fucking real?
And why am I watching her asshole husband make steak and potatoes and eating them with his hands while she’s toasting to ‘girl power’ with her fig and prosciutto pizza and sangria? (Let’s not forget her husband doesn’t like wine! What a clever way to reinforce the fact that HER MANLY HUSBAND WOULD NEVER EAT THIS COWGIRL ONLY MEAL.)
Bitches just toasted to goat cheese. And then Ree remarked that “We do not have supreme pizza at girl parties.” And now they’re feeding the dog. What the fuck did I just watch?
