Since I first learned of him last summer, I've had an intense dislike for Rocco DiSpirito. While watching The Resteraunt, it became apparent that Rocco is a total dick restaurant boss
(and this comes from someone who formely worked at Friendly's). His restaurant is so bad
that his partners sued him for mismanagement
. Rocco reacted in the ultimately classy way by counter suing
, arguing that his partners"failed and refused to pay any wages to Rocco's 79-year-old mother... fired the pasta makers and substituted frozen pasta in the restaurant's dishes..[and] changed the locks on the restaurant and refused to give a Rocco a key" among other things.
I thought it was impossible that I could think any less of Rocco DiSpirito. But I can. Turns out this celebrity chef, who can't even run his own restaurant, is somehow qualified to judge the Miss USA contest
. Additionally, he was in some sort of hideous kilt fashion show. So here's my plan: lets band together to petition NBC not to air The Restaurant 2. I hate for my precious TV to be polluted with such filth. Who's with me?
