This man hosts a cable TV show.
He loves to talk about all the colorful guests who have been on his show over the years.
He also loves to make things up about the guests to make the stories more interesting!
He was telling this story about how he was trying to set up [this female TV chef] and [this director/actor] because he thought they would make a hot couple.
The part that he left out is that this would never happen in reality because [the director/actor] used to date this young guy they both know.
Need a little more help identifying the guests?
The chef was born in another country, and the director/actor is close pals with a famous female talk show host.
