She's So Fake

I LOVE the food network and know every single person on there, but there's just something about Giada De Laurentiis that ****** me off. I mean, she's so fake. She takes these huge bites of her food and all I can think is, look, we all know you're just going to throw that up later. Not to mention, she pretends to be incredibly in the know. Yeah right, she probably steals all her tips from the awesome Barefoot Contessa lady. You know that lady's just way to nice to say NO when Giada asks how to cook.

I agree with all of the above: Her big teeth, bobblehead, "fake" congenitality masking obvious insecurity, her over exaggeration on the pronouncations of food terms... "pahn'chetta." I tried giving her a chance, but trying to watch her cook is like trying to watch Anne Hathaway "trying" to act.

She needs AA before she starts off on any other project. Go be a mommy right now. I remember her with her with matt Lauder on today's show drunk in Bora Bora scenes and throughout the week. And thanksgiving debacle on food network..what a joke (who cuts their finger....ummm drunks)..take a lot of time off giada girl...put down the baking mitts and walk away. You look like your on a course to self destruct. Come back when you don't have to open your mouth so big. And seriously your boob job was great but did you need to push it in our faces when we were starting to get interested in your recipies?? Our family jokes about it when we see your very early shows run, well, Lol. Like. BAM. But it did take away from the large head

I agree with all of you, she's very annoying to watch. I hate her specially when she's a guest judge ,she's so harsh, like have you forgotten when you started out. Rachel is up there in the same list, everything is cheese with Rachel , her voice cannot stand.!

I find the fake smile creepy! I'm normally a nice person but I just find Giada to be fake!


Awesome recipes? You have to be kidding, right? I was a chef in a very popular Manhattan restaurant for 12 years before I began to teach and I can tell you that her recipes are some of the worst on the Food Network.

Giada was wonderful in the beginning. So was Rachel. They were real people. What you saw was who they were. Unfortunately when people are successful their heads swell.
My beef is Giada's claim that she developed Lemon Spagh
etti. How come I had the exact dish at the River Cafe in London years before anyone had ever heard of Giada!!!

You mean that's a smile??? I thought she had lock jaw!!!

Every time I see her and her ridiculously huge smile, the song barracuda starts playing in my mind, cuz she's ALL TEETH! She's super fake and ridiculously skinny. Whoever made that comment about bringing Nadia back on is completely right!! I loved her show and miss seeing her shoes and kitchen!! But I'm with everyone there's just something about Giada that's fake and snobby! I just don't like her!

I agree. She really became fake... Her breast enhancement and certain Italian words pronounced then there is the overtly wide mouth you expect on a cheerleader. What a disappointment. She should be so embaressed from last thanksgiving special. I turned it off early because it was clear she was drunk and they need to rethink a return for her.... No knives at least

I thought I was the only one annoyed with how Giada presents herself. The first thing I noticed was the cleavage bit. I can't see how Food Network approves of her to wear revealing clothing like that on a COOKING show! I agree with a lot of you on here such as her being too fake, poppin food in her mouth like we're all supposed to get excited over it, how she uses "kind of" when she's doing something exactly not "kind of", like when she's spooning food onto a plate she'll say "kind of spoon it into the plate here" (so annoying), also the thing I've come to be really annoyed with is how she does a goofy little dance with her eyes closed after she spoons food into her mouth like she's actually enjoying it.

Bring back Nadia G and her Bitchin' Kitchen!!

Seriously!! I loved her and her show!!

She was cool! And rocked some great recepies

I HATE how she always talks with her mouth mull! That's disgusting! And she always acts like she is having sex with that food! Gross! Her husband never really looks all that interested!

Usually when she takes the second bite, they go to a commercial. Lol

This is hilarious! I admit like someone mentioned: She's like a car crash--bad to look at, but I can't stop watching (only because I like her clothes).I'm summing up 10 things I agree with and also find annoying about her.
1.Utterly pretentious (I stood 2+hours in line for her book signing, after which I was utterly disappointed when it was my turn and the FAKE vibe I got tasted bitter!!)
2.Prounouncing Italian food words with a. Wannabe-Italian-accent doesn't make her or her food any more exotic.
3. Adding olive oil (which she always says is" fruity"??),ricotta,proscuitto,marscapone,spaghetti, and fettucine does not an Italian dish make! Just because you add soy sauce,sesame seeds, andbok choy doesn't make everything Asian either (eye roll!)
4.Her head IS big. Her smile IS not attractive.
5.Cover that cleavage --shes a mom. This is a cooking show, not ****.
6.I lost faith in her naturality on camera when I saw a behind the scene video where her producers even scripted her to put a ladle down then crack the egg into the pan "like this" they said.
7.She seems patronizing/condescending to guests on her show:When her aunt Raffe is on, she makes uncalled for comments and faces like her aunt isn't hip enough for her rented LA kitchen stage. She treats people like morons; like they don't know how to zest lemons or pour pasta into a bowl or chop basil. Umm, an idiot can do that; shes by far not a culinary expert just because she does the above.Also, she Always has to make some comment about her guests in a way that she's making fun of them or is better than them or to make them look incompetent cooking.
8.Olive oil is NOT "fruity"!Arugula is NOT "licorice/spicy"-tasting!
9.She is obviously a "perfectionist". Likes things to look nice, pretty, and perfect...Even how she salt/peppers food. I'd much prefer REAL chefs like Anne Burrel who aren't afraid to get the kitchen dirty and DON'T have to be uber prim&proper with cooking mannerisms. G looks like she's afraid to get anything dirty.
10. When she lost to Rachael Ray on Iron chef, the look on her face screamed: But I'm prettier, with big boobs, *I* shouldve won!"

(I just wonder what she looks like without makeup. Hmm...)

Right. They mustve also told her to bare all her teeth when she smiles. The boobs r for ratings.

Ya but...she's reDICulously over grinning. Back molars are really nice, yes we see them

OMG I hate how she over pronounces all Italian foods, it's annoying and ****** me off more than anything! She's just awful!

There's nothing italian about Giada DeLaurentis

I feel awful making any bad comments about anyone. However, when I watched her in the early years, I appreciated how she was so raw when doing her show but also humility was clearly there. NOW? I'm completely shocked that Food Network finds her behavior on any show, even NFNS to be appropriate. Agree, the breasts should be covered. The fake Italian accent, gone. She recently opened a restaurant in Vegas. My friend had dinner there last night. They only ordered the light bites because the entrees were too spicy for them. That's fine. The decor she said was nice. The prices? Out of hand. And it's not like she's there doing any of the cooking. Couldn't she have just quit when she was ahead? I have a grave feeling she's in for a big fall. Celebrity chefs in general earn their status, because they can cook. Anne can cook. Alex can cook. Amanda can cook. Rachel? Yes, I guess some things she makes are okay. Keep watching FN and one day we may see Giada forced to drink a glass of humility and hope this takes her down several notches.

Did anyone catch the new show where they are in Vegas and she tells the person describing the food in the contest "No one is going to understand those words". Like we are all MORONS I thought, "oh no, she didn't really say that now did she?"

Lol. Her head is really big. We always noticed that. I wouldn't watch her cook really but just examine the head..... Lol

She is a fake. And the biggest annoying thing she does with me is "Perfect". The most over used word on all food network shows. But hers is always perfect. Of course after 30 takes and 40 cooks, its going to be perfect. (and photo shopped.)

I cant stand how she starts to salivate over the food and you can hear her producing more saliva and she shows every tooth in her head when she pronounces anything with the ee sound in it,,,,and she has the ugliest hands and always spreading her fingers like she is going to claw you

Look, I don't care for Giada much but what you people are saying is just cruel. I doubt you'd tell her she "has a huge head" and "creepy smile" in person, so why say it here? And as for saying she throws up after every show is just garbage. You have no proof of that, so stop stating it like a fact. There is such a thing as working out and eating small portions. Why would she be a cook if she didn't eat food? You guys make no sense.

Cruel? Aside from the "she probably throws everything up" comment, they aren't saying anything that is not true. As for your comment about nobody would ever say that to her face, you my dear, are completely wrong, I would LOVE to tell her what a pretentious boob she is

Besides the FAKE pronunciations, and friggin cleavage... not to mention that she (and most of the cooks on tv) have to TALK WITH THEIR MOUTHS FULL and its nothing short of DISGUSTING and gross.

HAHAHA I\'m so glad someone agrees with me about the cleavage. It is almost every shirt she wears has to show it. IT IS SOO ANNOYING! When I watch a cooking show I want to watch cooking NOT Giada\'s cleavage in the way of the food. Please food network MAKE her cover her little taa taa\'s!!!!!

She and Bobby Flay are the fakiest people on foodnetwork but the last two standing. I don't get it.

Seriously her and Bobby seem snobby and full of themselves

She has gotten on my nerves with "Isn't that pretty?" and every time she says something like Ricotta that fake Italian accent comes out. I am tired of being talked down to as if I were an idiot so now I have given up watching her show.

Not to mention the way she talks makes my skin crawl. Her head is huge and she has the biggest mouth I've ever seen on a human. She needs to put her boobs away when she cooks too. And by no means in my opinion is she a chef....

I never knew someone could have a "rectangle smile". Her fake, pretentious smile - is it even a smile? or perhaps an evil glare. And I've seen it on her..... there is nothing sincere or likeable about her yet Food Network continues to appease her. Why is this? We can all see through her... also, this woman simply cannot cook! I repeat - she CANNOT COOK! I can remember the network wasting air time on her for a 1/2 hour show where she made three things and one of them was cupcakes - FROM A BOX - and adding mascaropine icing. REALLY? From a box? Here is my bony body with my oversized head, my grandpa is famous (?) and the world owes me. I'm absolutely disgusted by this fake person

I think the word you are looking for is "jack-o-lantern."

Who is her grandpa?

She has an over large head early shoes reflect that. It was hard to watch cooking cause of her head size

hahaha, you are to funny, I LOVE THIS STORY !!! :- )

I dont think anyone is jelous of her. I just think everyone see's what they see. What i see is a very pretty girl. But i must admit that that huge smile can get annoying. Everyone says she has such a huge head, i never noticed that. She is very annoying with her stupid accent and her baby talk with how yummy and pretty everything is.But i must admit that i do love when she has very low cut shirts on. Has anyone else ever noticed that one day her boobs are huge and the next day they are small?

I am rolling laughing at the comments posted. Giaaaaadaaa is so annoying. She really grates on the nerves and it is freaky how all her bottom teeth show when she smiles. That must take strong facial muscles but I am sure her pronunciation exercises help her build up those muscles "just like that"

These comments are making me laugh out loud. I'm glad I'm not the only one bothered by her. I can't stand how she smacks her food when she's tasting it. It's truly disgusting. Also, she describes everything in terms of crunch or creamy, that's it. She really needs to expand her vocabulary. I also can't stand the way she laughs with her mouth wide open just to show all her teeth-blech. The fake accent is really annoying as well. Just pronounce it how you would pronounce it without the fake accent. Does she think it's impressing anyone? It just sounds ridiculous.

Giada is just creepy. She has this huge head and little body and she is always smiling and talks through her teeth.... Ugh.

I read in Paula Deen's book (although she didn't specifically mention her name - just hinted) that Giada does indeed spit out her food or throw up after her shows.<br />
<br />
She has shark teeth and she gets on my nerves because she's so skinny and "cute", and I find it amusing that her camera man always focuses on her cleavage.<br />
<br />
I REALLY can't stand Bobby Flay though. <br />
<br />

I knew it! They always cut away after she takes two bites! I swear she's spitting!

I thought I was the only one who can't stand this woman!!! Her fake big smile!! why she has to show that many teeth? If she is so classy why she talks with her mouth full of food the way she does it? it makes me wanna puke!! Fake-fake!!! I hate the way she says golden and everything is "elegant". I can't stand her.

Ya that mouth just opens to say a word. Which is weird that all the teeth have to show...who encouraged that look?

Cruuunchy yuuuuummy lettuce. Criiisspy, Creeeeeamy and full of light and delicious flavor! (Insert her constant hand geastures and hyper smile here) This is something they do in Italy where I know everything about, the mozzzzzerella and the rissssoto. Let me taste this right out of the bowl as I glance at the camera and smack my lips and moan about how delicious and yummy it is. Oh, let's take this outside my beachfront home where I constantly feel the need to entertain my equally fake friends and have a big to-do about how the lemon zest perfumes this particular dish.
