Paula Deen cops it from Bourdain as well in this piece in which its revealed that Mrs Kiddy Boombah Lunchbox has gotten ‘erself diabetes from eatin’ her own shit cooking… http://www.nj.com/entertainment/celebrities/index.ssf/2012/01/paula_deen.html

“”There ain’t nothing funny about diabetes,” celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain tells Eater.com. Last year, Bourdain told TV Guide that Deen was “the worst, most dangerous person to America” who is “proud of the fact that her food is fuckin’ bad for you.” He says he takes no pleasure in Deen’s revelation, but then again, “when your signature dish is hamburger in between a doughnut, and you’ve been cheerfully selling this stuff knowing all along that you’ve got Type 2 Diabetes … it’s in bad taste if nothing else.”

Some of these reality shows have no imagination whatsoever.

Kebab Cologne. Falafel Frogrance. Tabbouleh Tabou. FFS!!

Were I the Geordie Shore trash-bags I’d’ve gone the whole punani and released a perfume that smells of Snooki instead.

That’s what I’d call truly p’st-modern.

Snooki 3am (TM)…
(cue musc… *doof doof doof*)
“The frogrance guaranteed to get you laid, or at least smelling like you’ve been. A frogrance that’s worth every centimetre.”

Perfumer’s note: ultimately a woody little number, but starts out with complex undertones of desperation, hairgel resins and vagisil before hitting you with a whopping vodka-like alcohol kick that transmits the secret ingredient – Ambergris*.
