Team Fieri Slams City Pages Article

Categories: Media

Yesterday, we told you about the profile of television producer David Page in our Twin Cities sister paper City Pages. Page, who created the smash-hit Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, made several sensational claims about Guy Fieri, including that the spiky-haired star styles himself a mafia don and has made homophobic comments.

Fieri, his representatives and the Food Network all refused to speak to author Gregory Pratt, but today his representatives have released a statement:

Guy's reputation speaks for itself. He's a standup guy who does right by people. He would never make the kind of comments attributed to him in this story, and anyone who knows or has even met him knows that. That Mr. Page made these sadly desperate statements says more about him than it does about Guy or anyone on the Food Network team.
Eater also cites an anonymous source who accuses Page of "fabrications" and calls the idea that Fieri is homophobic "outlandish."

I suspect we haven't heard the last word on this.

"As for being a homophobe, they called it an "outlandish" and "ridiculous" claim. "The fact that the only confirmation of this comes from a producer who currently draws a paycheck from Page is telling," they said. "Guy's own sister, who recently passed away, was gay.""

Ouch.

You know the dude changed his last name from Ferry to Fieri to sound more 'legit' -- that in and of itself should be enough not to take the douche seriously.

People like you are gonna hate regardless. Do a little fact checking. His name was Feiri, his grandfather came here and changed it to Ferry so it would be less Italian and more American sounding. He changed it back to Fieri to honor his grandfather, dumb ass.

Um, dude, that was exactly my point -- he wasn't confident enough to keep his birth name and thus had to change it.  Douche move, whomever he wished to honor.

Yiiiip

He's still a turd.
