What is UP. It’s SB, filling in for Heather, who is off doing something glamorous and exciting. She is awesome, which is why I’m covering for her. Meanwhile, I am no Fabio and there is no rabbit in a hat. What you are about to witness is going to be a goddamn exploration in half-assedness, so … if you’re the type to fasten your seatbelt while driving through the grocery store parking lot (and I totally am), buckle up, because it’s going to be a very meh ride.
So are you all super sick of me of saying how sick I am? Well so am I, and I’m sick of being sick, but I will NOT shut up about it, because you know what’s about as fun as it sounds? Watching shows about food while you’re sick. Uuuggghhhh. And you guys, I LOVE me some Italian food. Ask Billy–I will never say no to a trip to the Olive Garden. So yeah, I think I know a thing or two about Italian food.
But first … the Quickfire. Padma brings out fellow Bravo buttboy host Isaac Mizrahi, and Angelo squees about how he’s soooo into fashion, and my eyes roll straight outta my head because seriously? Are we still pretending Angelo isn’t gay? SIGH. Still, I did like the artistic nature of the challenge, although I thought involving Isaac Mizrahi in this one was a stretch (it would’ve made more sense with Work of Art, in my opinion), but it was cool nonetheless. There were several pretty dishes, and Angelo’s epic fail, and in the end, Richard took it home for something that looked like forest critter food, but was actually … black ice cream? I’m honestly not sure which sounds less appetizing, but it was all very modern, and I like Richard, so … good job, Richie! Also, when did everyone start calling him Richie? I think we have Fabio to thank.
