Guy Fieri slams Anthony Bourdain for making fun of him: I don't like him talking sh-t
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 11/18/2015
Guy Fieri is feuding with fellow celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain because he's clearly tired of being the butt of Bourdain's mean-spirited jokes.
Fieri, the Food Network star best known for hosting Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, fired back at Bourdain in an interview with GQ magazine after Bourdain had previously made fun of him on Twitter in March and in Atlanta magazine's July issue.
Fieri, 47, finds the 59-year-old Parts Unknown star's insults "actually disappointing."
"I don't like him making fun of people, and I don't like him talking sh-t. And he's never talked sh-t to my face," Fieri toldGQ. "I know he's definitely gotta have issues, 'cause the average person doesn't behave that way."
Bourdain made light of the fact Fieri's Lamborghini was stolen earlier this year, tweeting that he took the car and it smelled "like Ed Hardy in here." The Ed Hardy brand is known for its crazy, colorful skull-infested patterns. The best-selling author known for his blunt comments later asked Atlanta magazine during an interview, "How does Guy Fieri de-douche?"
"It's not that I'm not open to the reality that the food world was like this from a few people's perspective," Fieri added. "It's just, 'What are you doing? What is your instigation? You have nothing else to f-cking worry about than if I have bleached hair or not?' I mean, f-ck."
Bourdain declined comment when GQ contacted him, but hopefully he'll respond to Fieri's slams on Twitter soon.
Fieri got his start on television by winning the second season of The Next Food Network Star. He went on to appear on many Food Network programs such as Guy Off The Hook and Guy's Grocery Games.
Bourdain, who also began his TV career on Food Network, starred on Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on the Travel Channel and became a judge on Top Chef All-Stars as well as The Taste.
