Giada De Laurentiis,
I used to be obsessed with watching The Kitchen -- followed it through multiple time changes, every weekend and even repeats on Monday. It was fun for the first few seasons, but really lost a lot of its entertainment value when Marcela left. She was kind of a sensible, laid-back personality that balanced the stuffiness and goofiness of the others.
Then Sunny's personality took over the show, drowning out her co-hosts and the food they prepare. I don't know if she does it on purpose or if she cannot help herself. The people behind the scenes must see what the audience sees, but obviously they haven't done enough to make the show bearable. When I last watched, they did have Sunny sitting a lot, which makes it more difficult for her to do her well-documented grab-and-stuff-your-mouth act.
I guess I quit watching after the last break the cast had before Thanksgiving and Sunny looked like she had eaten the whole time. I bet she gained twenty pounds. She is not the only host on FNC to have eaten herself into obesity. Making food for a living must be a frightful life. That is one reason I admire Jeff, who realized he was packing on the pounds and did something positive about it.
Anyway, I quit watching The Kitchen, and that resulted in my turning off my tv entirely. Haven't even missed it. Thanks, Sunny. Ironically I owe you for improving my life -- and I didn't even need a recipe to do it!
