    Not only is he a tasteless womanizer...let's see, he's also appears to be a homophobe...yippee! Yeah for NBC! Hey, they actually showed a show taking place in NYC with more than just social elite whitebread folks.

    >>>>>When was he homophobic? I missed that part.

    ........Only people I liked were Laurent, and Gideon...who both seemed to handle themselves quite respectfully...though who knows, maybe it was all in the editiing......

    I really enjoyed "Jamie's Kitchen" much more than I did "The Restaurant." Jamie actually taught them how to cook a little and cared about his staff. Too bad Rocco didn't show a little more humanity towards his staff.

    I really don't know how you can compare the two. While the core premise of the two shows may have been similair, the production value and target audience were COMPLETELY different. Jamie's Kitchen was made to show a chef teaching cooks the inner workings ofa kitchen. The Restaurant was made to entertain people, and tell stories that happened in a restaurant. If you walk away from either one saying "This is how Rocco really is" or "This is how Jamie really is" then I've got some swampland to sell to you.

    I didn't say that this is how either one of them really is. They were both shown opening restaurants. If you remember, one of the main complaints the chefs in Rocco's kitchen was that Rocco seldom taught them anything. Jamie did take the time to teach his staff (I'll admit he had to as they were not trained chefs) but Rocco was too busy with his publicity stunts. That was the basis of my remarks.

    I agree with the comment about Rocco joking about having sex with the guy's new fiancee'.

    It was a hideous joke - people who joke like that in my life get dealt with severely.

    That was about the 6th time that Rocco has been a total a$$ with regards to sex and himself.

    moron

    I think he was raised in a cage and let out when he was 21.
    His Momma should be ashamed of him.
