Find Out What Food the Cast of OITNB Would Go to Jail For

The ladies of Litchfield have to deal with some very unpleasant meals while locked up (like Piper’s tampon sandwich from season 1), but that doesn’t mean the Orange Is the New Black actresses don’t have serious palates in their real lives.

The food website Delish.com caught up with the cast to beg the question: What food would you go to prison for? And their answers are both random and awesome.

While Taryn Manning‘s character Pennsatucky praises Jesus, Manning worships Mexican and pizza.

“In California we have a place called Del Taco; otherwise Taco Bell is my weakness. I can’t get enough mild sauce in the yellow packet,” she said, adding her other true love is “margherita pizza that is extra crispy, and super thin.”

The Netflix show’s Assistant to the Warden Alysia Reiner revealed she is all about the sweets.

When she’s not having some kind of chocolate “every day,” Reiner says she’s “dipping marshmallows in peanut butter. I ask my husband to hide the peanut butter so I don’t go crazy.”

Some of our other favorite food answers include Jackie Cruz (Flaca) admitting she drinks leftover salad dressing, Laura Gomez (Blanca) saying she’d “fight with someone for a good French onion soup,” and the series’ resident mute Annie Golden (Norma) not having much of a response at all.

“I’m not really a foodie. I’m pretty bland,” says Golden but admitting: “If I go to a restaurant, I look for the appetizers and if they have a shrimp cocktail, I’m good to go. When they don’t, I kind of go, ‘Really? Really?’ ”

Orange Is the New Black season 3 is streaming now on Netflix.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

SORRY, BUT THAT CRUST DOES NOT LOOK RIGHT AT ALL. DO THESE PHOTOGRAPHERS, OR WHOMEVER IS IN CHARGE OF PUTTING THESE THINGS TOGETHER, THINK WE ARE TOTAL IDIOTS AND CAN’T SEE FOR OURSELVES THAT THAT PIZZA IS NOT RIGHT AND DOES NOT LOOK RIGHT, LIKE IT’S SUPPOSED TO LOOK? MOREOVER, WHERE THE HELL IS A PROFESSIONAL RESTAURANT/PIZZA EATERY QUALITY RECIPE AT, LIKE THE RECIPES THEY USE IN PIZZA PLACES AND RESTAURANTS?? THAT IS WHAT WE REALLY WANT. WE WANT THE EXACT SAME RECIPE, ALL THE EXACT SAME INGREDIENTS, BRANDS, AND ALL THE SECRET INSIDE INFO THAT THESE PIZZA PLACES USE, SO WE CAN RECREATE THEM IN OUR OWN HOME. IT THESE PLACES WOULD LOWER THEIR PRICES AND WOULDN’T CHARGE US AN ARM AND A LEG, WE WOULD PATRONIZED THEIR ESTABLISHMENTS INSTEAD, BUT THEY ARE FAR TOO GREEDY.

@DD, the pizza crust looks exactly the way it should for a margherita pizza that is super thin/extra crispy…and for crying out loud, turn OFF your cap lock! SMH.
