HVTV's Kitchen Cousins

Jersey City cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri work for a construction company owned by Anthony's father.

John said "We live in the same building as his parents." Is this more than a business relationship?

by Anonymousreply 15309/05/2015

That's a very common phenomena among working-class families in cities in the Northeast, OP.

Families stay close. Cousins are best friends. Every time an apartment comes vacant in someone's building, they get a family member into it.

Hell, my working-class family in the middle of flyover nowhere is like that, too. My brother and our cousin are best friends, my mother and the cousin's mother, who are sisters, live on the same block, which is also the same block they grew up on, three blocks from the house I grew up in, which is where my brother lives now.

Who cares? Why is the focus always on hot guys? Usually the guys who actually do the work are not as cute. What a superficial society we are!

They have matching tattoos on their right biceps, that's boyfriend stuff.

If they're real old-school, when the guy gets married he brings his bride home to his parents' house for at least the first year; the bride learns how the run the house they way her MIL does, and the newlyweds save for their own house or business.

They served a great meal complete with cold formed life source bits that I enjoyed very much. They're very conscious of keeping corn gluten out of what they serve.

Finally! there is a thread on these two Italian gorgeous studzilas! I was wondering if one of the cousins is gay? They are Adonises! However, sorry but they have the same boring design with ever client. Its always these predictable boring MOD Italian kitchen cabinets and bland looks.Each episode is the same old thing.

FWIW, they claim to be straight on their Twitter page, but they're not uptight about it. Considering that their work sucks (John is the designer), maybe they're telling the truth.

You'd think that the pretty boy might be gay because he likes to dress to emphasize that chest. But it's the other one that pings to me. He tries to look butcher, but there's something there. Even though I'd rather it was the pretty one. :)

I actually know "of them", have a female friend who is close friends with the family. All I can say is - based on what my friends says - if either of them are gay, they are apparently doing a great job of hiding it.

They are apparently really nice guys though.

John (the pretty one) is engaged and looking for sites to hold the event, he seems WAY to excited about the event. they must have tons of money in the family, because the sites he was looking at for the wedding were really high end places. his twitter feed is something. but maybe because he assumes most of his followers are women? i expect that in a few years we'll hear about a divorce....

HGTV should start a post-Sandy tv show. There are thousands of houses needing small to large renovations after superstorm Sandy. Stores like Lowes and Home Depot would live the humanitarian PR of sponsoring these renovations, since they are for middle class and working class white people and not the kind of people like in New Orleans. HGTV viewers would resent poor black people getting free stuff.

These 2 cousins are extremely arrogant and rude. My good friend knows them personally bc he lives in the same building and they are not well liked. The one brother Anthony refused to move one of his motorcyles from a handicapped spot that he claims that he owns. He was completely heartless towards another resident in his building who had a visitor who was a quadraplegic in a wheelchair and refused to move his bike from the handicapped spot for a few hours after the resident kindly asked him for his help as this poor person was unable to walk. If that is not cruel, I don't know what is. People only see the "acts of kindless" these 2 do on their show. They are only "acts" though. The "real" cousins are heartless and uncaring and their behavior off the air definitety shows it.

What's missing from porn today is the take-off/parody of so many programs from HGTV... Kitchen Cousine, Property Brothers, etc...

The big guy, Anthony, on KC screams for a scene in porn with his hairy ass in the air getting plowed by someone from the crew or the husband from the home that's being renovated.

Remember Weekend Warriors? Damn that host pinged to high heaven and the show had an episode with a gay couple building a new deck in the back year... if there wasn't some serious cock sucking going on in between takes, those men all suffered from low t levels.

Question. How tall are they? The reason I ask is I happened to be flicking around and caught a minute of their show and they were standing next to the wife of the homeowner and everyone had hardhats on and both of them were barely an inch taller than the wife and she was far from a giant. I am guessing both are barely 5'-9".

by Anonymousreply 6403/20/2013

In response to the last post, as I mentioned in a previous post, my good friend lives at m650 and sees the 2 cousins all the time, I visit the building frequently too to see my friend.

They are converting what used to be an old telephone company building into rentals, thus the name "Telco" Lofts. Taken from the concept of "Canco" Lofts in Jersey City which used to be a canning factory which was rehabilitated by another devoloper several years back. The m650 building in JC is a mess. There has been massive water intrusion (leaks) into the units which has been going on for years. I really hope for the people who wind up renting at Telco that BrunCon does a much better job with the rehabilitation of this building. Evidently, John is trying to sell his unit at m650 and has it listed. No plans of Anthony or his parents moving as of now.

by Anonymousreply 7003/20/2013

I just don't understand why these guys keep buying these buildings to rehab in these run down areas of JC with this vision to revitalize the area and then ask ridiculous prices for the units. It never happened at m650 on Montgomery Street. That's what they tried to do there 4 years ago. BrunCon lost 1/2 million on that project. The units were way overpriced for the inner city. They had to keep reducing the prices on them because there were no buyers at those inflated prices and the units took forever to sell. That neighborhood is basically as run down as it was 4 years ago when they bought it. People on the street begging for money, cars getting stolen and broken into. Revitalized area? I don't think so.

I honestly think that the cousins may be gay or bi-sexual. They both have female significant others so maybe they are having foursomes. I just think something is definitely off. I come from an Italian family and I am very close with my one cousin, but I don't do absolutely everything every day with him(work with, hang out with and go out with every single day). We each also have own lives and own circle of friends too. John and Anthony are rarely seen with other people except for the two girls (Jennifer Walker and Genevieve Gorder). It is like the guys are joined at the hip. I think that is a little odd, even in Italian heritage. To us, family is very close, but we also have our own separate lives and own groups of friends.

Yeah, John always wear shirts a size too small. John is just way into the pretty boy look and fashion thing to be completely straight. Anthony is the butch looking one.

I think Genevieve just probably has low self esteem now and is acting irresponsibly. I guess a divorce can definitely do that to you. I am sorry but taking a trip on a motorcycle through Death Valley when you have a 5 year old is just irreponsible as a parent. She can do a hell of a lot better than Anthony Carrino anyway. She is a better designer than him by far. Besides, I think Anthony Carrino is a dick in real life. I met him a few months back in NYC and he came across with such a smug attitude and the other pretty boy cousin just kept flashing this annoying phony smile. Sorry, those two just rub me the wrong way. The Property Brothers I met in Toronto a while back. They are are a couple of really nice guys and are just so completely hot in person.

Cant bare to watch the fakey fake "cousins" who just happen to be gorgeous, constantly cracking up and bursting out into loud fits of hand-smacking laughter.

It's so contrived and obnoxious. These stunt casted HGTV shows have become tiresome and I think people are beginning to catch on.

HGTV LOVE finding models or aspiring actors, teaching them how to use a square and a band saw and then fabricating a back story for cheesy shows.

I suppose women and plenty of men eat this shit up, but I can't handle watching anymore.

Yeah, where is the real talent here? Taking 2 guys with no formal designing training or real design skills and giving them a show just because of the novelty that they are "cousins" and they are decent looking? I have seen that show several times and find it a joke. It is so obnoxiously staged and so fake, and then the designs at the end are all the same style with these impractical set ups and crazy color combinations that just don't work (didn't they ever study the color wheel and learn what colors work together?). I would like to see more shows on HGTV with hosts with real design talent and not this crap.

Fact: Ms. Gorder is living with Anthony in his apt at m650 flats in Jersey City. You are right, she is currently having her NYC brownstone renovated. Fact: Anthony is a "low brow wanna be". I know him personally and he is very different from the person that he portrays on TV and how he acts in front of the media. I agree, Ms. Gorder does comes across as a classy lady (I do not perosnally know Ms. Gorder though). I am very surprised to see her with Carrino and think that she could do better. The guy doesn't even give his lady his parking spot in his building and she has to park her BMW out on the street. Sorry, that's not too chivalrous.

#99-Thank you for your reply and confirmation. I'm the one who posted #98. As I said, I don't know these folks personally, but being someone who is new to his fanbase and wanting to know more about him...well, you get my meaning. I still enjoy the show, but the glitter is wearing off. The more I look at him, the less I am impressed and my admiration of Ms. Gorder is sunken a bit. Even though Anthony's family is around and giving support to him and Ms. Gorders daughter, I just don't see this couple as a couple. Tyler Harcott should be climbing the walls knowing his ex-wife and his daughter is shacking up with this man. This "relationship" looks more like a rebound/middle aged crises thing for Ms. Gorder and business opportunity for Mr. Carrino. I'm surprised that HGTV isn't trying to give Ms. Gorder a much needed reality check to rethink her romantic choice-given her stature with them.

by Anonymousreply 10005/05/2013

#100-Thank you for your reply back. I am always amazed how people can act one way on TV and in front of the media and then act completely different in person. I post here because I have personally known the two cousins and Carrino's parents (Alfonso and Francine) even way before they got that TV show. I just feel that people need to see the other side of them: the side that is not evident unless you have had personally interacted with them on may occasions. They are just not nice people: very condecending towards others, sarcastic and think that they are above everybody. I just have no respect for people like that. I also feel the same that this whole "relationship" it a rebound thing for Ms. Gorder and a publicity thing for Carrino. As I mentioned before, I do not know Ms. Gorder personally (meaning that I have physically seen her on many occasions but have never had a conversation with her). However, I very much disagree with her parenting ideas: how she is letting her young daughter shack up with her in Carrino's condo. I think that is setting a terrible example for that young child and I am not sure where Ms. Gorder's head is at.

There is no Carrino brother. He just has a younger sister named Olivia. Pompous ass is an understatement though to describe Carrino. I am beginning to lose more and more respect for Gorder too. She has been living with Carrino for over 6 months now in Jersey City. Gorder has a young child from a previous marriage but seems to act pretty recklessly. She just took off with Carrino today actually for a long motorcycle venture up the cost of northern Cali. I am sorry, but that is irresponsible for the mom of a 5 yr old. If something ever happened to her, what would happen to the poor kid?

Carrino does have a younger brother. I met Mike a few years back. Pretty sure he is a surfer or does it as a hobby. Don't know much about him other than he came across as very nice but shy. Doesn't seem to care for much publicity and enjoys his privacy. On the family construction website he is listed as Anthony's younger brother. Looks like Anthony but much better looking.

Botton line is I have no respect for Colaneri, Carrino and Carrino's parents. I have known them all for over 4 years. They are nasty, condescending and unhelpful people. The worst part is that they are thieves and builders from hell. They have put m650 flats in Jersey City in a complete financial hole. They recently renovated that warehouse in 2008-2009 converting it into residental condos. The condos have so much water damage (and no, not from Hurricane Sandy). Water damage that started 4 years ago and is costing the homeowners thus far well over 100K to fix. Major issues with shoddy construction. Sorry, unacceptable.

Did John and his bride get their wedding cake from Carlo's in Hoboken?

by Anonymousreply 12206/26/2013

Nope. Mama Carrino made it special for them with her own blood, sweat and tears.

Ooops I meant Mama Walker.

#121-Then perhaps someone from that building should contact Mike Holmes from "Holmes on Homes". Now that would be an episode worth watching. Sorry to hear about those problems with 650. Although I am willing to bet the top condos are in perfect condition because the families live in those. They will most likely scuttle over to the new condos when they are complete.

Local gossip in NJ is that Anthony is now being called Anthony Gorder. Behind his back of course. Dear sweet GG keeps him on a tight leash,choke chain and he follows her around like a cheap piece of luggage.

And yes, Mike Carrino is NOTHING like his family. Keeps his distance and lives away from them. Smart man.

They may be shit contractors and they may have shitty taste (oye they have the worst aesthetic) but they're fucking fine and both are packing some serious Italiano sausage! Holy shit, they're blessed.

Bottom line.... They're fine. That's why they have a show. Not because they're talented! Duh?

What is that tatt on the side of his body?

by Anonymousreply 12807/12/2013

Well, actually John Colaneri did recently sell his condo bc he was getting married and his condo was only a one bedroom, one bath. The new owner moved in a few weeks ago. Little does he know that all of the the owners of m650 are getting slammed with a special assessment to cover more repairs for the water damage. His assessment will be over 4,000!!! The association has already forked out about 50K for waterproofing. About 100,000 of repairs are still urgently needed there. Evidently, many people still have water pouring into their units and even mold growth. Evidently, the m650 association has retained a lawyer to potentially sue BrunCon for shoddy construction. As far as those new condos, Telco Lofts, anyone interested in them should run the other way. Who would want to take the chance after the whole m650 fiasco? And as far as Carrino is concerned. he IS a cheap piece of luggage.

The tat is the Joshua Tree.

So, Anthony may be straying from his live-in gf Genevieve. He was recently spotted on his his motorcycle with a blonde that was definitely not Ms. Genevieve.

Construction? Jersey? Italian-Americans?

I think I've seen this movie.

by Anonymousreply 13310/01/2013

Those two are complete dickheads. I would not watch any show they are on. I have personally known that family for over 4 years (Alfonso, Francine, Anthony and John) and they are some of the most obnoxious, uncaring people that I have ever met. They don't deserve to be on TV.

by Anonymousreply 13410/08/2013

These two are NOTHING like they are on TV. The sympathy and helpfulness that they portray on their shows is all an act. The only people that they care about is themselves and their family. They would NEVER help a complete stranger who was down and out unless they were getting paid or there was something in it for them. I know this from my personal interactions with them and from interactions that I have witnessed that they have had with other people.

so, R135 etal. did they rebuff your pass?

by Anonymousreply 13610/08/2013

They're both delicious.

by Anonymousreply 13710/08/2013

I found them both to be very generous, especially when it comes to sharing their horse hung cocks.

by Anonymousreply 13810/08/2013

R134 and the 18 other comments he made on here may be missing the point of a media lust crush. we'll never meet these people. so it doesn't really matter how they are, but damn, do they make the fantasy life more interesting. and i know John is married, but....

by Anonymousreply 13910/08/2013

Well normally it doesn't matter to me either how people are in person when I watch TV shows bc I will probably never meet them, but it is very different in my situation since I have to personally deal with all the shit and drama of this rotten family on a regular basis on a non-media level. It makes me literally cringe when the TV show comes on.

by Anonymousreply 14010/09/2013

Maybe it is hard for people to relate to me bashing this family. The fact is: I have to physically see and deal with them and their nasty, condescending behavior pretty much every day. It is very hard knowing their true colors and then watching them put on this big, fake act in front of the TV. To all the people that follow the cousins, I just hope it always remains a media lust crush for you guys and that you never run into them on the street or ever have to talk to them.

They don't have a good rep at hgtv. Most can't stand them.

#141-I had a customer service issue last spring with Anthony Carrino. Was not pretty. He has no communication skills. Their shows are scripted.

by Anonymousreply 14310/23/2013

I have had a lot of personal dealings with Anthony Carrino, his parents Alfonso Carrino and Francine Carrino and also with John Colaneri in the past 5 years. They are an extremely obnoxious, selfish family with very bad tempers who think that they are better than everyone else. Don't be fooled by what you see on TV. It is all a big act.

I am glad that people are finally starting to see their true colors.

Property Brothers are infinitely more talented and charming. Kitchen Cousins have neither talent nor charm.

by Anonymousreply 14601/28/2014

Yes, the Propery Brother are great. Very talented, charming and very easy on the eyes.I hear that the Propery Brother are very nice, sincere guys in person too.

by Anonymousreply 14701/29/2014

And way more handsome too.

by Anonymousreply 14801/29/2014

No, not even close, R148. Kitchen Cousins are hunky studs, Property Bros. are stick figures.

I live in the same building as Anthony Carrino and see him almost every day. He is short, grimy looking and far from hot. And to top it off, he the biggest self absorbed douchbag u could ever meet.

by Anonymousreply 15007/25/2014

Any pics of John shirtless? I've tried but I can never find any.

by Anonymousreply 15107/25/2014

Here is the deal with these two. Colaneri is not gay; he is married with a kid on the way in 2 months (Could be bi though: you just never know). Carrino could go either way. He was dating Genevieve Gorder for a couple of years but they have been broken up for at least 3-4 months. The reason for the break up was because she wanted a more serious commitment in the relationship and he didn't. So she moved out of his Jersey City apt. into her newly renovated brownstone in Tribeca and he is currently in the process of moving into his new apt this week(still in Jersey city). Carrino and Gorder are no longer romantically involved.
