Recently, while discussing fatherhood during his 90-minute stand-up show, Bourdain explained:
“So I sort of feel in a heartfelt way for Guy [Fieri]. I wonder about him. He’s 52 years old and still rolling around in the flame outfit . . . What does he do? How does Guy Fieri de-douche?”
Turns out, Mr. Bourdain hasn’t ever talked sh*t to Fieri’s face, and Fieri is now firing back at him IRL.
After all the history of bickering between them, you would think that by now they’ve had an upfront, in-person discussion about how they really feel about each other. Although it hasn’t happened yet, the confrontation might be inevitable now because Fieri is basically using fighting words. Get ready, foodies of the Interwebs.
Fieri told GQ:
“It’s actually disappointing. I don’t like him making fun of people, and I don’t like him talking shit. And he’s never talked shit to my face. I know he’s definitely gotta have issues, ’cos the average person doesn’t behave that way. It’s not that I’m not open to the reality that the food world was like this from a few people’s perspective.
It’s just, What are you doing? What is your instigation? You have nothing else to fucking worry about than if I have bleached hair or not? I mean, fuck.”
Yep, he’s definitely calling Bourdain out, and he doesn’t give a sh*t about it.
While Bourdain’s comments may not always be the nicest, I guess we all give him a break, because deep inside, we can all appreciate that one sarcastic friend we're secretly amused by.
But Fieri, with his…let's say "unique" outfit and hair choices, is definitely not letting Bourdain's comments slide.
Guess we’re just going to have to wait to see what Bourdain has planned for his response. The bleach blonde hair and t-shirt comments are getting pretty old though, Tony.
