On Monday, Fieri was in San Rafael to testify briefly in the attempted-murder trial of the young man also accused of stealing one of his cars — a $200,000 Lamborghini convertible.

On Wednesday, I tried without success to reach Ramirez at his REL Salon to talk about the distinctly unflattering video.

Since the start of Fieri's stunningly successful career in TV, I've enjoyed talking with him and writing about him. But since the PD covered the jaw-dropping review of his Times Square restaurant in The New York Times, he no longer talks to us.
