Anthony Bourdain is the host of Travel Channel’s No Reservations, and the man behind Kitchen Confidential — he’s also apparently not a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow.
While on a panel with fellow foodie Mario Batali at Seattle’s Paramount theater last weekend, Bourdain poked fun at Batali’s PBS series Spain… On the Road Again; which featured the chef and Paltrow on a culinary tour of Spain. “Why would you go to Spain with the one bitch who refuses to eat ham?” The Seattle Weekly reports Bourdain asked about Paltrow.
Now, we all know Paltrow has fallen off the vegetarian diet since, but at the time of filming she still was full-on VEG.
Bourdain also had some choice words for fans of Batali’s former home network: “The people who watch the Food Network,” he said, “are the ones with a gallon of soda and a bag of Cheetos going, ‘oh, I could make that.’”
Pompous? Yes. An ass? Yes. Joking? Probably. Either way, referring to a woman as “that one bitch” and mocking her for being a vegetarian won’t win you many fans.
