i was channel surfing last night and landed on the debacle that is paula's party

she had someone on and they were squeezing fresh mozzarella into balls

the cheeses were in a bucket of water

well paula started squeezing one and then took a manic huge bite of it and threw it back in the water with the others

ick

i hope they didnt use what was left in that bucket!

    I didn't see the first half of the show. Does anybody know who the young man was in the rather formal attire featured in the empanada segment that she was giving the come hither look to? I felt very sorry for him. I thought he was about to become an appetizer himself.

      No, but the mozzarella guy was from Arhtur Avenue's Mike's Deli. He was also on an eggplant parm throw down with Bobby Flay. I felt sorry for him when Paula went for the mammoth bite.The mozzarella doesn't even have much taste at that point. Don't you wonder if they have her on some uppers? If you read her autobiog you know she has depression issues.

      LMAO! Guess you're all going to be thrilled she's been given a 2009 talk show on the major networks and is going to be joining the ranks of Rachael, Oprah, Martha Stewart and Ellen. No, I'm not kidding you.

            they sure will.

            yes, some of us would rather stab ourselves in the eye with a fork than watch these shows, but they have plenty of viewers without us. hell, i just heard that rachael ray's show won the emmy for best daytime talk show, beating out the view AND ellen. so not only does she have the audience, apparently even her peers think she's doing something right...

            The tom-foolery on this show is more than I can take.
