Being one of the Food Network’s biggest stars — and host of the popular game show “Minute to Win It” — comes with its perks, but also its downfalls. For Guy Fieri, it’s the hair-gelled copycats who fool his legions of fans that really get him upset.
“We get quite a few requests for autographs. I mean, every week I sign a hundred or so ... but [some] fans will send a picture and it’s them and an impostor,” Fieri told Metro at the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival over the weekend (apparently there was one of these impostors at the fest). “And I’ll send it back, and I’ll send them a picture, and I’ll autograph it and say: ‘I’m very sorry, this isn’t me.’ And they’re heartbroken, because these clowns stand there and don’t say, ‘No, I’m not Guy.’”
Take note, fans: Next time you see a guy sporting a flame-embossed T-shirt, a goatee and sunglasses inside, think twice before snapping a photo with him. Instead of the famed Fieri, it could just be someone with really bad fashion sense.
The next tattoo
Metro got the scoop on Fieri’s next possible tattoo:?“I think I’m getting a joker card or a Jack, one of the two, of [my kids] Hunter and Ryder, and one side of the card will be Hunter and the other side will be Ryder, just because they are a couple jokers,” Fieri says. “I don’t know. I have a million ideas. I’m always dropping them down on napkins and going to my tattoo artist and talking about them.”

Stop making so much sense, Beyonce
You think it’s bad having your mother ask you when you’re going to have a baby? Just try facing the harpies at “The View.” The thought alone is enough to make your ovaries hide behind the couch.
That’s exactly what Beyonce Knowles faced last week when she appeared on the talk show. Luckily, she took it in stride when the baby question was asked. She said when she and Jay-Z have kids isn’t up to them, despite having initially said she expected to have one by the time she was 30. “I thought 30 was so old back then,” says Beyonce, who turns 30 next month. “You know, one day [it will happen]. That’s something that God has to decide. When it happens, it happens. I’m just so happy to be in this place in my life.”
