First I heard it from a lunch companion. Then I saw an item on our news. Then I read it in the Courant.
Apparently, some dude named Adam Richman hosts a show on the Travel Channel called “Man v. Food.” I’ve heard of the show, but that’s about it. I didn’t know if it was on the Travel Channel, the Food Channel, or the Discovery Channel. I’d never heard of Adam Richman. The Adam Richman, not to be confused with Adam Rich, the once-upon-a-time adorable child actor on “Eight Is Enough” turned into a drug-and-booze-aholic.
The Adam Richman came to the Greater Hartford area to stick some giant hot dogs down his throat for his show. When I saw the blip of a story on our late news, I wondered why we didn’t see or hear from him. Then I saw this in the Courant:
“I am not allowed to do interviews unless they have been approved by the production company” was his terse response when Java approached, hoping for a quick comment…”
That verbiage is the equivalent of what’s inside a really cheap hot dog. And the Adam Richman is what passes for “celebrity” today.
Get over yourself, pal.
