Unsurprisingly—like many of his friends and family members—she is defiantly defending the Jell-O man and discrediting his accusers.

Don't get us wrong: We've got some adventurous taste buds around the BUST offices, and we're big fans of Gaby Hoffman pretty much no matter what she's up to.  However.
