Paula Deen is hitting Anthony Bourdain with the verbal equivalent of a hambone to the head.
Bourdain got the first course started yesterday, calling the Food Network star's cooking "f--king bad for you" and labeled her the "most dangerous person to America."
"Anthony Bourdain needs to get a life," she fumes to the New York Post's Page Six.
"You don't have to like my food, or Rachael [Ray]'s, Sandra [Lee]'s and Guy [Fieri]'s. Deen also blasts Bourdain for being a chef to the high-class only.
"My friends and I cook for regular families who worry about feeding their kids and paying the bills."
