It’s been a banner week for Antoni Porowski. Not only did he attend the Cats premiere with his Queer Eye co-star Jonathan Van Ness, he also went to Martha Stewart’s Christmas party at her undoubtedly gorgeous home. But when he posted about the holiday celebration, well, that’s when things took a turn.
The culinary expert took to Instagram to share two photos from the weekend, one of him in the back of a truck cuddling Martha’s dogs, which he captioned, “with my clique at the Christmas party,” and another of him walking through Stewart’s stables and petting a horse. “Socializing at Christmas parties,” he wrote of that pic. While he gave the photo credit to agent Ben Levine, it’s who he didn’t credit that landed him in trouble — the hostess herself. And like a proper queen b who does know her manners, Martha addressed it in the best way. Um, public shaming, anyone?
“Dear Antoni: This is @marthastewart48,” she began her comment under the stables pic. “You did not tag me on this photo of my stable nor the photo of my beautiful dogs Han, Qin, Bete Noir and Crème Brulee. We are bummed about that because you have so many followers and you are my Christmas cookies!!!” And for good measure, she added, “You were nice not to post the forbidden scenes and we thank you!!!” Ouch. That had to hurt.
We’re not sure what’s worse — being scolded so publicly, or disappointing the iconic lifestyle guru. Either way, Porowski learned his lesson, corrected his mistake, and issued an apology for all to see on his Instagram Stories.
“Dearest @marthastewart48 (I got your insta right this time), apologies for not respectfully mentioning dear doggos Emperess Chin, Emperor Han, Bete Noir, and cuddle monster Crème Brulee,” he wrote. “They deserve recognition also I re-watch your cabbage roll demo with your dear mum Mrs. Kostyra more often than I care to admit. *Also @moll_doll23 would’ve wacked me across the head if I posted said forbidden scenes.”
All right, Antoni’s manners are intact. Now, what are these “forbidden scenes” we keep hearing about? We’re probably going to need to hear them from Martha since Antoni knows better than to defy her and go back in the doghouse. So come on, Martha… spill!
