Secret Revealed: Watch for me on Ina Garten's Thanksgiving Special!

Okay, I couldn't wait any longer!


You are some smart readers! Many of you guessed right.

I, along with four others, will be on Ina Garten's one-hour Thanksgiving special!!!

Being an Ina superfan, it was the chance of a lifetime. I promise to have lots more details (and pics) over the coming weeks leading up to the special. I can't give it all away just yet!

Rest assured, she is every bit as fabulous and warm and generous as she appears on TV. And, yes, the house is ridiculously beautiful.

So much more to come. Yay!

*****************

Still can't believe I was there. I get all warm and buttery (and oily, for its high burning temperature) inside when I think about it!

Sweet! Man that is so awesome! U lucky bistid you! Looking forward to that special even more now. Did u get in by the contest on her website or was it through connections? What were the other people like that were also there? Is her house anywhere near Loaves and Fishes? All those houses look so much alike in that area. I have like a million questions please fill us all in asap!

Wow. Most of us can only dream of being one of Ina's gays, and you got to be, even if just for a day. So fantastic (and so insanely jealous!). Hopefully you'll be fabulous friends and she can give lots of dirt on all of the Food Network people (of course, not that she really associates with any of them).

 
At 9/27/2008 7:12 PM , Blogger Donita said...

That's awesome. I am a HUGE Ina fan and will look for you. I am a friend of your sisters' in IL!

Wow, congrats! I'm totally jealous!

Congratulations. That's great! Ina, The Cooking Loft, Ace of Cakes, and the new Alton Brown Feasting on Waves show are the best current reasons to watch FN IMO. For a Thanksgiving show, none of the others can possibly even compare, though! Looking forward to seeing this.

I feel so jealous! I could only see Ina on TV or in my dreams... I mean, I practically live on the other side of the planet!

Good for you! :D

Can you tell Ina someone from the Philippines send her love to her? Thanks. :D

Can't wait to see the Thanksgiving show!! We may need to start a C-U FNA fan club :)

I can't believe you are going to be on TV!! Jakeypoo is a Celebrity! Does this mean I can be interviewed in your True Hollywood Story?!?!?

You Lucky B*$th!! I would give anything to hang with Ina for a day!!

Ok, I just have to say how incredibly jealous I am! I can't wait for the episode to air. =)

I am Ina's biggest fan, along with the other five million people who just said that. no really, i amd the biggest. I couldnt watch her Thanksgiving special because I had another commitment.....is it going be repeated in this century or come out on video or anything? I never miss her show if I can help it and own the dvd set she sells.
