Us Tv Star Stuck In Beirut

US travel writer, chef and TV personality ANTHONY BOURDAIN has been caught up in the latest hostilities in Lebanon. The tough-talking New Yorker and a film crew arrived in Beirut last week (ends14JUL06) to shoot an episode of Bourdain's Travel Channel show NO RESERVATIONS and have been unable to leave since. Posting a message on his website over the weekend, Bourdain assured fans and well wishers he and his crew were safe. He wrote: "We are all of us in good health, good spirits and working ferociously on our tans and sipping blender drinks while watching the fireworks from a secure location. "Our masters at Travel Channel have made sure we are being well looked after." A spokesman for the Travel Channel tells newspaper USA Today, "We are monitoring the situation in Beirut closely... and we're working all appropriate channels to get Anthony and the crew safely out of the country as soon as possible."
