Sometimes, I half expect Giada De Laurentiis to strip down to her underwear and lick the camera lens.
She wants so bad to be sexy. I don't know if she's watched Nigella and is trying to copy her, or if she thinks Tyler Florence needs a female counterpart, but, really, it's kind of gross. Not to say she doesn't know what she's doing; I think she does. She seems to have some skill. It's just that she instructs in this phone-sex voice and it's distracting. And the camerapeople? Do Ina Garten's show too and they need to be fired.
