We’re totally jealous of Giada De Laurentiis. She seems to have it all, and this year her success increased exponentially. The gorgeous Food Network star and “Today” show contributor released her fourth cookbook, gave birth to her first child, and got a new TV show, “Giada at Home.” Did we mention she’s married to a man who designs clothes for Anthropologie? Sigh.
