Food Network B.C.C.
before canned crap
We love to browse sales tables at the local Barnes & Noble looking for cooking gems. Recently I snagged this treasure for less than four bucks. Published in 2003, before Bob Tuschman assumed the Food Network helm and began his reign of culinary terror, this book hails from the days of yore, when Food Network featured actual cooking shows hosted by trained chefs, as opposed to a bored, post-partum-depressed Ree Drummond and her train wreck Pioneer Woman show.
Slush Pile Hell
What happened to The Pioneer Woman movie? Looks like Reese Witherspoon’s agent successfully prevailed upon her client to reject this mediocre movie-of-the-week project that’s been “in the works” for years. The last we read, the original screen writer had resigned and another had been hired. From the looks of things, Reese is so busy these days, she won’t have time nor the inclination to attach her name to such frivolity.
Jaden Stinks Up Twitter
Remember Jaden of Steamy Kitchen fame, the woman who took pictures of herself jumping up and down on a bed at the Drummond ranch? What’s up with this moron? Can she not lick the pioneer woman’s butt enough? Now she’s co-hosting a hospitality suite with the fake little ol’ ranch wife at next month’s BlogHerFood convention in Austin. Get over it Reeple, entry to this suite is by invitation only.
How Austin, a culture singularly defined for its edginess, ended up hosting a Joel Osteen-like crowd of women who pay to sit in the same hotel conference room with Ree Drummond remains to be seen. A sad day for Austin indeed. Too bad the city’s bars and clubs, known for their avant garde music scene, won’t see much revenue from this crowd.
Photographer, Shane Bevel aka Tulsa, OK suck up
Have you guys seen these purportedly “professional” pics of the faux Pioneer Woman? Ree’s face looks like a PhotoShopped cross between her own and one or maybe both of her daughters. I didn’t have time to read much about this guy’s background other than on GOMI, where Bevel reportedly accused GOMI of being an image thief. Ostensibly these were taken for LHJ, another mag that succumbed to Ree’s publicists after being inundated with press releases. One caption would fit all these shots:
“Hi, my name’s Ree. Don’t I look purty? My hiney is absolutely tingling at how good I look. I totally want to be a food celebrity just like Ina Garten. The only difference is I don’t have near as much money as she, but I have enough to hire publicists to promote my talentless ass and local photographers to make me look Reely good.“
The WSJ’s Ellen Byron follows in Amanda Fortini’s footsteps
With the Pioneer Woman’s next cookbook
in the loosest sense of the word slated for a Fall release, her publicists are moving into high gear flooding the media with press releases about Ree growing up on a golf course and lassoing a cowboy. The Wall Street Journal’s Ellen Byron is the latest suck-up to write a fairy tale about the fairy tale, one no doubt billed to Susanna and Meg’s expense account.
For those unable to get past the WSJ pay wall, here’s an interview with the author:
The Pioneer Woman | Open Topic
We’re starting a new feature here at The Marlboro Woman. Called “Open Topic,” we’ll keep comments open between posts so readers can post whatever’s on their mind about the fake Pioneer Woman. All we ask, please don’t insult our intelligence and keep the topic about Ree. Comments such as “she’s so yucky” are not only immature, but are at best tweeted. If you think she’s yucky, tell us why. When commenting, please keep in mind this site is for discussions of Ree Drummond, her phoniness and the fabricated Pioneer Woman image. If you’re a fence rider, an employee of the Pioneer Woman or one of those Reeple pinheads who live their lives vicariously thru this imposter, spare us the hate, bullying, jealous diatribes. Your comment will be deleted.
