Guess which Barefoot Contessa regular is now modeling for the menswear department of Target? I’ll give you a hint: it’s not Jeffrey.


Why, it’s none other than T.R., the debonair yet creepy suitor Ina’s known since he was fifteen. Apparently when he’s not busy courting Ina for a free meal down by his fish shack, T.R.’s furthering his acting/modeling/NOT FISHING career. I’ve actually seen T.R. in a multitude of places, the most high profile of which being commercials for British Airways and Volvo. However, this is the first time I’ve encountered him in such a mass-market, non-WASPY campaign. What would the East Hampton Historical Society say???
Nevertheless, I’m sure Ina’s positively delighted for her friend. And let this be a lesson to you all: when taking pictures, be sure to use a GOOD male model. (chuckle chuckle chuckle INHALE chuckle chuckle chuckle)
