I’m baaaack! Now that all the nasty weather has blown through, I am feeling good and raring to blog. Which is good because I am way behind. Let’s start with Chef Roble! If you are not watching this show, you probably should be. Roble and Jasmine are all excited that their (ridiculous) tea party with Phaedra made Page Six. The phone rings and Jasmine is all “well hello daaarling” and it turns out she is NOT talking Phaedra, but B. Scott, who Roble describes as a guy that looks like a girl who is an Internet entertainer. What could possibly go wrong with this?
I must say that B. Scott makes a much more beautiful woman than…oh let me hush. Already B. is making demands. She wants people to think they are eating one thing but they are really eating another. No beef or pork. For Jasmine’s design he wants a heart-shaped ice sculpture with a big B on it. And pictures of um, her everywhere with a grand entrance. Also, he is insistent that the location be very chill, like literally. Frankly, this is the one time I think Jasmine should just let Artie do this one. You know he is going to try anyway and this is more in his wheelhouse.
Jasmine has already said she is taking over. Artie is already looking constipated. B. is already threatening that heads will roll. Artie says they have promised too much. Meanwhile, the kitchen is making weird crap that looks like other weird crap. I am sure that it will be good, but if I was having Roble cater, I just tell him to do whatever he wants. Roble has been freaking out the whole show about not calling his company Chef Roble & Co because it is Roble & Co. That may be true, Roble, but your TV show is called Chef Roble & Co. Take a breath. This argument over Jasmine mistakenly saying Chef Roble & Co has extended over two days with Roble cursing like a sailor at his sister. Jasmine actually calls Artie to mediate. She also called their mother. Roble is heated.
Speaking of heated, despite Jasmine going to great lengths to get the location as cold as possible by turning on the air full blast at 8 am, it seems that it didn’t work. There is an insane about of setup for this event. Tons of furniture. Also, all the kitchen appliances are blowing the circuits. Thus the air is not working, and the space is HOT. This is no bueno for the ice sculpture. B. Scott comes in and has a flinging fit and leaves. Roble says he will throw the event all over again for him. Drama. Generally, on this show everything goes great and it all works out in the end. Not this time. At least Roble and Jasmine made up in the end. And can I just say that Artie was well-behaved this show.
Next week it looks like a different story and Artie loses his cool at a chi chi polo party, with some hot polo players. Yum.
