Bourdain in Miami with a Girl

By Karen

That’s right. Celebrity Baby Scoop got the best pictures ever of Anthony Bourdain’s daughter, Ariane, who will be 5 years old on April 9.

Over the weekend, she and dad were hanging out in their hotel pool during the South Beach Wine & Food Festival. Ottavia didn’t seem to be around, and I kind of doubt the paparazzi would have come away unscathed had she been there.

But anyhoo, the pics are on the ‘net now. Since the Bourdains have always protected Ariane’s image, Cats Working will respect that, but here’s the link to the photos.

Now let the discussion begin… Who do you think she favors?

And just when you think Paula Deen can’t sink any lower…

On February 24 Al Roker was in South Beach for the festival, and the Today Show gave Paula and her son Bobby an opportunity to act shocked and declare that mean people had “piled on” Paula for developing diabetes.

You’d have to go back to the Bush administration to find a more pathetic attempt at spin.

Of course, they carefully omitted how Paula pushed her deadly cuisine for 3 years after her diagnosis, and that she only admitted it once her lucrative diabetes drug endorsement deal with Novo Nordisk made continued deceit impossible.

And Roker let them get away with it. Shame on him!

Without the slightest trace of irony, Paula even had the gall to call her disease “a blessing.”

I guess so, now that it’s opened up a new multi-million-dollar income stream for her.

Honey, y’all ain’t foolin’ anybody. Cashing in on your diabetes was disgusting enough, but enlisting your son to help you bad-mouth anyone who’s appalled by your dishonesty and greed only adds calculated spitefulness to the list.

    I’m up coughing my head off with this cold, so here I sit at the computer. I’d have to say that Ariane looks slightly more Bourdain than Busia, although there’s something of Ottavia about the eyes and maybe the nose. And Ottavia has said that her hair was the same color when she was Ariane’s age. In any case, little Ms.B. is adorable — and appears tall for her age.

    I have the feeling that dad and daughter didn’t know they were being photographed; the pictures have an aspect of having been shot with a telephoto lens – the pics show none of the background of the fabulous pool at the Raleigh.

    Adele, I agree that they probably didn’t know they were being photographed. Ottavia’s been posting pics of Ariane on Twitter lately, but with her back to the camera or some object hiding most of her face.

    I guess I also see a bit more of Tony in her looks. And if she’s got his height, maybe she’ll escape the Italian curse of aging into a short, dumpy grandma type.

    Happy for Bourdain that he has found some real joy in life. Regardless of whether or not he was aware of the photo-op, nice thing to see. With his real take on the world, she will no-doubt be a well-cared for daughter. As for the genes, Ariane can’t lose on either side and hopefully has a healthy combination of both.

    I agree she favors dad, but I see Ottavia’s coloring especially in the eyes and dark eyebrows. There is one shot when they are both scowling, twins.

    Anyway, she sure is a cutie but then I am partial to half Italian redheads…….

    Im with you all of you-Ariane seems to take after Daddy.

    I would love to slap the shit out of Paula Deen.Everybody’s “hatin’ on” her for good reason.I can’t even watch her show anymore.

    I just hope Ariane doesn’t end up covering her lovely skin with gross tats.

    ZM, I’m with you on Paula Deen. I’ve thrown that her on my mental trash heap with Padma Lakshmi. An article in today’s paper said Food Network has just started talking to Paula about how she’ll revamp her show to complement shilling for the drug company (well, they didn’t put it exactly that way, but you know…). She says she’s dropped 2 pants sizes through exercise and smaller portions. Wouldn’t surprise me if next she’s doing “Dancing with the Stars.” And I won’t be watching.
