Nigella Lawson P*ssed Over Questioning On The Project

Nigella Lawson and her fans are not too happy with The Project after her appearance on the show last night. Hamish McDonald asked a question that seemed to stir the celebrity chef, and it was about one of the things she’s best known for - but hates being asked about the MOST; the innuendo she appears to use when talking about food.

However, Nigella was NOT impressed with the question.

“I was really intrigued to read you rejecting all of the analysis of your cooking shows,” Macdonald said to Lawson.

“All these kind of innuendo, you saying, ‘I don’t do it on purpose, it’s not part of the plan.’

“But I’ve got some quotes,” he said, and then took it upon himself to deliver some of Lawson’s more memorable lines.

“My empty vessels are ready to be loaded. I adore the way it comes bulging over the rims.”

However, Nigella didn’t laugh along with the rest of the panel. “No, no, no, no, but why, why, tell me this ... why?” the chef said defensively.

“You have this way of saying things,” Macdonald explained.

“I have this way of people projecting things on me,” Lawson responded.

“I don’t get it. I need you to explain to me.” While the exchange was hard to watch, it was the audience who labelled the interview as, ‘awkward AF’.

“Nigella was great, then at the end, the blonde guy (no idea who he is, Hamish?) makes a senseless sexual innuendo about her commentary on her shows,” wrote one person on The Project’s Facebook page.

“Tasteless end to what should have been a great interview.” Eeeeek.
