The Sitcom You Probably Forgot Giada De Laurentiis Guest-Starred In

Giada De Laurentiis has done it all. Per The Kitchn, the Food Network star has written at least nine cookbooks. She has been the host of numerous cooking shows, served as a contributor for the "Today" show, won Emmys, started a blog, voiced an animated character in the movie "Scooby Doo! and the Gourmet Ghost," cooked for Prince William and Kate Middleton, and the list goes on (via Giada De Larentiis). The celebrity chef with California flare and Italian roots has definitely hit it out the park when it comes to her professional career. 

But did you know that De Laurentiis also made a cameo appearance on a sitcom? It actually makes a lot of sense if you think about it. De Laurentiis comes from a family that screams Hollywood. Her grandfather, Dino De Laurentiis, was a notable producer with a claim to fame for movies like "Blue Velvet," "Conan the Barbarian," "Three Days of the Concord," "Hannibal," and "Red Dragon," to name a few. Per Insider, her mother was an actress, and her father an actor and producer. Even her siblings are part of the movie world. You could say that the movie industry and acting are in her blood and part of the family business. So, about that sitcom De Laurentiis made a guest appearance in.

Giada De Laurentiis sitcom was about a food blogger

Per Entertainment Tonight, Giada De Laurentiis once made an appearance as herself on the sitcom "Young & Hungry." Per IMDb, the show is about a handsome and rich entrepreneur from the tech world who hires a food blogger named Gabi, played by Emily Osment, to cook for him. In the episode our favorite "Everyday Italian" host makes her appearance, per TV Guide, De Laurentiis goes to the restaurant Gabi works at after social media encourages the Giadzy blogger to make a pitstop at the eatery to sample the sandwich named after her. However, De Laurentiis is none too pleased when she finds out Gabi created the sandwich and comedy ensues.

But don't expect the host of "Bobby and Giada in Italy" to hang up her apron any time soon. While she is proud of her family's movie chops, De Laurentiis told Christopher Kimball's Milk Street that acting has never been her "thing." In an interview with the food outlet, De Laurentiis revealed, "I tried my hand at a million different things, acting being one of them. I didn't like any of it. I wasn't comfortable. I was shy. I don't know. It just wasn't my thing. I loved food."
