In the video I said something to effect that the styling and the cover looked as though it belonged on the menu board (not bar, but I suppose I should enunciate on my, uh, cooking show) at Sparro's.
Anyway, Victoria and I exchanged emails, I told her I enjoyed many of her covers and that I would issue an apology. She was more than gracious and said that she would post both videos on her blog, that any publicity was good publicity and we left it at that.
Well shortly after I released my video(s) I sent Victoria an email stating that my "mea culpa" was up and thought nothing of it...
That was until I went to her blog, www.ALongHotSimmer.com, and noticed I had been duped by the food stylist extraordinaire (after all, she did style the cover that won this year's "Most Delicious Magazine Cover" by the American Society of Magazine Editors)
Not only did she not put up my apology video, she put up my original video and wrote that I said "nasty things about [her] on [my]...uh...video cooking show".
Additionally, one of Victoria's readers, Martha, goes even further by writing
So what is the lesson to be learned in all of this, boys and girls? Well, either don't say "nasty" things about a food stylist or if you do and that food stylist contacts you, proceed with caution lest the food stylist traps you like a big hot sticky mess of lasagna on a paper plate at Sbarro's.
