Will & Grace star Debra Messing isn't messing around when it comes to her allergies. She issued an incredibly long list of things she's allergic to, before showing up to an event for Haute Living Magazine in Manhattan.
Here's what sets her off, let's start with the food allergies:
"Debra is allergic to ALL WHITE FISH, chicken, mushrooms, gluten, dairy, butter (except feta and goat cheese). Debra does not eat game, beans, yogurt, broccoli, cauliflower. She is lactose intolerant. She cannot have cheese or milk (only coconut milk).”
"Debra is allergic to wool, cats, cashmere, down feathers, FLOWERS and gabardine [a type of woven cloth]. The only flower she is not allergic to is orchids.”
Only orchids for Debra! Leave the cats out of it. And for the love of God, please don't knit a little wool sweater for the cat and then present it to her, thinking it's cute.
It's not. She's allergic!
So the restaurant who thew the bash took her list seriously, and catered a meal to fit her demands.
- Tomato gazpacho with feta cream
- Marinated tuna in tomatoes
- marinated salmon with granita of cucumber
- Rum and lemon
- Truffle pizza (gluten free)
The staff also threw out all of their flowers and replaced them all with pink orchids.
