Happy Birthday Giada De Laurentiis!

Giada De Laurentiis turns 38 today!



Now clear this up for us: Is it DEE-lah-REN-tis or DAY-lah-REN-tis?

Technically, I think it should be deh-loh-REN-tees. But there are so many dialectical variants in Italian (they've really only tried to have a standard national language/pronunciation since after WWII) that it's too tough a call.

Regardless, tanti auguri, Giada.

She may be 38, but I think her boobs have a different "birthdate" -- it always struck me that she and her mom had them done together as a mother-daughter bonding thing...

May I be the first to say that I hope she gags on her birthday cake.

Who cares if it is her birthday.

Who care about her at all ?

I never thought Giada was all that attractive (but hell, I also had no idea that she was nearly 40, so I am certainly more impressed now knowing her age).

But she must be waaaaay better-looking than I realized because woman are completely, insanely jealous of her. Hence the hilariously negative comments on here every time she is mentioned.

I have to disagree with Anonymous. I DO think she's attractive, but she annoys me. There's a difference, hence why I write the snarky comments about her. I just can't stand her, but she is pretty. It's a precarious tightrope I walk, but I manage. lol

She is pretty and she has great recipes but she's a bitch and a snob.

Happy Birthday Giada!
I think she is beautiful, she's a good chef, and I love watching her show.

PS- I'm a new reader of your blog, and I love it! :)

Happy Birthday Giada!

I think she's is def a MILF...

I don't get how you can hate on Giada, she went her own way instead of following in her Grandpa's footsteps, she works hard.

Cheers to Giada!

You can work hard and still be a bitch. I love her recipes but that's about it.

To follow in her grandfather's footsteps, Dino, she would need a heck of a lot more talent than stirring food together.

What women are jealous of her? That was kind of a rude generalization to make. I like her show a lot. I haven't seen or read anything from her outside of that.

Please, Sean, all the hate on Giada does NOT stem from jealousy. (Although you could say that Giada's catty comments toward other women stems from it.)

It's more like her holier-than-thou attitude. She's shown her true colors and they are ugly.

The only reason she even got a show is because of her last name...and that's a freaking fact. Even though she was TERRIBLE, her show was ordered because of her famous family name.

Therefore, she has NO reason to be such a b!tch to others.

She's not very attractive and her head's too big. Nice cleavage, though.

She just got to be a MILF this year. I say Happy Birthday.

That is a damn fine picture you picked.

I agree with melon_lord in saying that Rach will always have my heart. (sighs).....I digress, :)....Giada's show is so classy and clean and she is a beauty. I wonder how many know her personally to call her a "b" or a "snob". A taped television show certainly cannot deem one's entire persona in a half hour show. As if!

My bad....I forgot to say Happy Birthday Giada!!!!! I certainly hope u don't gag on ur cake. How rude!

I always noticed Giada pronouncing it "Dee" not "Day". So I'd say that's what it is.

Wow, Giada is so beautiful.

Happy Birthday !

I've watched her show and I don't see diva, I see very charming.

Her true personality comes across on the last few seasons of TNFNS, not her scripted show. Duh. Where have you people been?

Well, I've met her briefly twice. Both times she was just lovely, down to earth, and authentic. I've seen her at our local grocery store as well, making a salad at the salad bar, just like the rest of us. TV is a brand, a personality. Real everyday life is what matters and in real life, she is someone that I admire and respect.

Hey Kelly you are so right. I have met her also and she is VERY nice. My nephew met her at a book signing and she was super with him.

Her food is good is simple.

Thx Kelly for the post. I have never met her but I can't see her being such a stuck-up or on some ego trip as people claim her to be on. I see she has a new book signing tour coming up so that will be my 1st time seeing her. I think she's fab.

She's great on her show. Just a bitch on every other show.

She's cute. Has an unnaturally large head and chest. Not that thats a bad thing necessarily :^). At least shes one of a handful on TFN that can actually COOK!

Susan Lucci has a big head on a little body. I just thought I'd put that out there. I see she's going to be on "DWTS"....hope no one dips her they might not be able to pull her back up! Ouch!

No talent hack. Got her job for three reasons. First her grand-daddy's name, the other two appear on her show.
