Giada de Laurentiis (whose grandfather Dino just passed away, by the way) takes a lot of heat here for the way she pronounces Italian food items very 'Italian' and very specifically.

All either of them are doing is pronouncing Italian words as an Italian would, albeit in the middle of American/Canadian English-sounding sentences. But I haven't seen anyone give David a hard time over it. Is Giada just over-the-top for some people, and why?
