>>> anthony, of course, a huge talent, and he's the first to tell you that. if his ego got any bigger it would look like paula deen 's thighs.

>> a pretty amazing cover, a husband, father, recovering drug addict , stars in multiple tv shows and written best-sellers, in a ramone video. i mean, anthony , is there anything you can't do besides cook?

>> what was for dinner? anthony bure dane , the bad boy of the culinary world who speaks his mind with no reservations getting a dose of his own medicine. a guest of honor at the new york wine and food festival wine and roast with the proceeds for charity. willie , you're with us.

>> you're meaner than i knew.

>> i'll take no responsibility for that paula deen joke. love paula deen .

>> you were just getting started. you're known-for-your caustic tongue and wit. did you get it. did you get burned last night?

>> it was like a prolonged and painful, you know, medical procedure . i had it coming. i knew i had to go through it. it was the right thing to do. we put mario through a similar process a few years back. it was for a good cause, and i also thought there was a serb justice in giving some of the things that i said to rachel and about rachel and guy over the years. i thought they deserved an opportunity to give it back to me.

>> actually i think barney mcfarlane was brutal. i mean, just withering. and it was scorched earth . wasn't just me. just took everybody done. she was brilliant.

>> i don't have them here anymore.

>> oh, when a shame.

>> about rachel ray , we have people who play chefs on tv, ladies and gentlemen , rachel raye, and guy fiery, what can you say about guy's cooking that hasn't been printed on a packet of cigarettes?

>> these chefs were licking their chops to get after anthony bure dane , after all the books he's written and things he's said in public, rachel ray and guy fiery and through his accent destroying him.

>> anthony , you still have that aserb intongue, and i know you've been pretty critical of paula deen , for in the only the way she cooks, but now you say she's selling diabetes equipment and kind of profiting from that. any regrets about that?

>> no.

>> i'm shocked.

>> look, i -- i was good-natured in the term of rachael and guy and always handled it with good grace. i have less of a severance humor with paula, to be honest.

>> your show is moving to cnn.

>> moving the band over to cnn. we're taking all the cameras, producers, the whole dysfunctional family over there and going to continue what we do just on a bigger and weirder level.

>> all right. anthony bure dane , thanks for coming by and being a good sport about everything.

>> a lot of fun.

>> and willie , learned a little something more about you. i'm
