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.
