Tyra Banks Spotted at Peas n Pickles

From the NY Post comes this item that supermodel Tyra Banks was seen at our Peas ‘n’ Pickles with boyfriend/financier/Brooklyn Heights resident John Utendahl recently:

NY Post: TYRA Banks doesn’t appear to be much of a cook. The model-turned-talk-show host stopped by the Peas n’ Pickles convenience store in Brooklyn Heights with financier boyfriend John Utendahl and picked up more than 20 frozen dinners and a dozen energy bars. “She bought $130 worth of food, which they had to ring up item by item,” laughs our spy. “Her boyfriend paid for everything with his AmEx Black Card.”

And now a completely gratuitous Tyra Banks video:

    Yow! Does this mean we’ve touched the hem, so to speak, of Ms. Bank’s bedazzling raiment?

    That her feet have actually trod the same linoleum flooring that mine do when I visit Ps n Ps?

    I’ll never think of ice-cream case, or that gripper-grabber thing, in the same way again….

    I spotted Mr. Utendahl using that same AmEx Black Card at Blue Diamond Health Center early Sunday morning.

    poor tyra – you’d think she could do better than Amy’s Organic and FrozFruit bars for her sustenance. Try Iron Chef House and Siggy’s, Tyra!

    Somehow, Jen, the phrase “poor Tyra”…well, to me it’s oxymoronic.

    In every sense.

    But you WERE being facetious, weren’t you?

    I saw Paul Giamatti in Peas and Pickles too! I guess everyone needs to get random shizz from time to time.

    Hey, Lucy Roche lives just up the street from P&P. Maybe it’s the new “Studio 54″?

  • hmm

    The two go into a store and buy a bunch of frozen dinners. The store is in the BOYFRIEND’S neighborhood. The post concludes that TYRA isn’t much of a cook. So much casual stupidity everywhere, everywhere.

    Like you?

    I prefer formal stupidity. Why is casual stupidity now so accepted? Doesn’t anyone make an effort anymore? In the old days people had a better sense of what type of stupidity was appropriate to the situation. Not anymore.

    Is Utendahl’s apartment on Montague Street by any chance? After all, that’s where all the other banks are.

    I no longer have TV and have been debating whether to get plugged in again. The only show I miss is ANTM. Great business tips for creative types, even for me in publishing. I’d love to see Tyra in the hood.

    When I last saw her–in the flesh–she was in a hoodie.


  • grace

    because she was shopping for groceries and in a hootie doesnt mean YOU and her are in the same class. She knows the value of her dollar and that’s why she is a millionaire and YOU are not.

    Wow, tensions are high in here. I just wanted to say “ha!” to nabeguys’ post.
