The One Where I Crapped My Pants.

I am a huge “Top Chef: Just Desserts” fan. I am a bigger fan of the dessert show than I am of the original “Top Chef.” I watch it every week. I read The Big Gay Ice Cream Truck’s recaps of the show on Eater. I have even re-created some of the desserts here at home.

As much as I love the show, I ADORE Johnny Iuzzini. He is one of the five guys on the “White Guys I think are hot and wouldn’t mind making out with” list. (I am obvie more into stocky, Asian guys with a penchant for Sci-Fi and distaste for breakfast for dinner.) The other 4, in no particular order are:

  • Mandy Patinkin-THE VOICE
  • Alton Brown- THE BRAIN
  • Ryan Reynolds-um, duh
  • Bradley Cooper-He speaks french and looks like this:

Last night, whilst FB messaging some people from my neighborhood and watching “TCJD”, they were once again ruminating on whether or not he was from the Gravesend/Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn. He mentioned once on the show how the L&B Spumoni Gardens owners were like family to him. They are like family to a lot of us in this area of Brooklyn, being a staple in our community for seemingly forever. (I will tell you, when I order a pie, it’s from here.)

Without even considering he would respond, (what celebrity responds to just being mentioned? I mean, I must have mentioned @SarahPalinUSA about a gajillion times on twitter-no response) I tweeted about my beloved Johnny, and this happened.


I could care less if Ashton Kutcher gave me a #FF. (follow friday) I wouldn’t give a lick if Rachael Ray offered me a hug and a bowl of buffalo chicken hamburger broth, (or whatever she makes) Mother Trucking Johnny Iuzzini tweeted me.

Tarts, Tattoos, and Twitter.

  1. I love love Johnny Iuzzini. I would have been star struck if he was tweeting me. I haven't watched the finale yet, but Just Desserts is one of my favorite show right now. And thanks for the comment on Healthy Happier Bear, I look forward to reading more on your blog.
  2. You would make out with Alton? Hmm... I understand the brain. But I think he would make an awesome friend to talk with for hours. Now, Bradley Cooper.... Mmmmm-mmm. Why w/ J. Lo? should be with me. :D That is awesome Johnny Tweeted you! Those tats... that pic.. mighty fine. Yes, if I say so myself. {very cool}
  3. So I just had eleventy posts from you show up in my Reader feed, and am now catching up. SO EXCITING to have a celebrity crush tweet you! My top five, in no particular order: 1. Nathan Fillion 2. Johnny Depp 3. Alexander Skarsgaard (quick trivia: I used to work with his now-step-mother. We drank many a drink together, and are still friends [although only on Facebook now, she lives in Sweden], and she, Alex, and I are all the same age...I could never be his stepmother - impure thoughts....) 4. Stephen Colbert 5. Mike Rowe (Honorable Mention: whoever plays the werewolf Alcide on True Blood....yum.)

talk foodie to me...
