SWALLOWING GUILT Giuliani
Rudy Giuliani's former chef wants to find out if Hizzoner can stomach a helping of hot gossip.
Just in time for the race to the White House, Linda Taylor, the former chef at the New York City mayor's residence, is shopping a book proposal called Dishing the Dirt at Gracie Mansion. Her plan is to cover the 200-year history of families who've lived in the house, including several menus, recipes, and in Hizzoner's case, a side dish of scandal.
Taylor tells Radar that there were quite a few dalliances during Rudy's reign, with at least one guest being ushered out the front door as then wife Donna Hanover arrived at the back—not that Taylor ever talked to Hanover about what she observed. "The First Lady did not deign to gossip with the staff," shares the now-San Francisco-based cook.
