Wife of celeb chef Tony Bourdain taps out man

The Underground News meets a quota or articles per day and per week. If the news in our sport unfolding on any given day is lively, the UG news is, if all goes well, lively as well. If there is not much news, say it is the day before Christmas for example, then the UG news can get pretty trivial.

This then is the slowest story of the year.

Doug Quint, owner of the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop in the East Village had a grappling match in his shop vs Ottavia Bourdain, wife of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. The event was in celebration of Festivus, and to raise money for New York Cares.

Bourdain is admittedly obsessed with MMA, and studies BJJ at Muay Thai at Renzo Gracie's in Manhattan. She insisted her husband get UFC 132 tickets "close enough for blood spray" as he put it, and then threatening divorce if he bet on Cruz over Faber. When Faber lost, she consoled herself with a large meal.

The couple share matching tattoos:

Lol@ this nonsenseBourdain IS the producer and he IS thr writer.So whatever "cool" the show has... Is due to the man himself. HE is the show, and he is the reason it's cool.

I would absolutely love to have his job, but I'm surprised he hasn't had a public relapse with that lifestyle of travel and transition.They have absolutely created a character of cool with his show, but that's likely to be more an issue of producers and writers, rather than the man himself. I've said it before, but Bourdain clowns on himself plenty, exposing his own lameness where it exists, and I think that's a very respectable risk for a personality to take.

Bourdain travels for free, eating the best food his producers can find and hanging with the most respected chefs in the world. Meanwhile, he writes books, stars in multiple TV shows, and does paid speaking gigs. He also makes royalties off of his old books and old TV shows. So, yeah, I'm sure he's doing just fine financially.

 Bourdain's wife seems cool as shit.  She's not hot but, sexy and confident.  He has enough celebrity to bang much  younger and more attractive women, but seems to have a real person to be with instead.

 Bourdain is a wealthy man. He doesn't have a restaurant empire, he has fun and gets paid well.
