What Do You Want to Ask Tony Bourdain?

I don’t think you really want to know what I’d want to ask him.

He’s not my usual type, but I’ve harbored a crush on him for years.

OMG, total crush :slight_smile:

Ewwwwwwww…sorry. He has male version of a resting bitch face if you ask me. I don’t know why I just can’t stand the guy.

Uhmm… Since you put it that way, I think we really DO want to know what you’d ask him.

(Hey, you brought it up!)

Those sorts of questions are best whispered into the ear of the object of your affection

I’d ask him what his biggest regret was.

I’d bet he doesn’t look back but forward. But a good question.

I agree, he probably doesn’t look back but lots of times the negative events in life shape us so much that they aren’t quite as negative as we once thought.

I also would like to whisper my question into his ear :wink:

I’d like to ask him if he has a drinking problem.

It seems he is always getting hammered or recovering from a hangover.

Given the fact 75 %+ of people in the industry do have drinking problems (myself included) , I feel confident answering on his behalf. Yes he does have a drinking problem!

Spotted Bourdain coming home one late afternoon. He lives across the street from my daughter on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I asked: “How are you doing, Tony?” He let out a smile and said: “Fine!”
“How do you keep up with it all,” I asked. He just threw up his arms in a playful way and shrugged, still smiling. So that’s what I got to ask him first hand…meanwhile other folk on the street and in cars were calling out his name as they noticed him in front of the building: “Hey, Tony!”

He’s probably perpetually jetlagged, in addition to that.
