Celebrities have invaded the Hudson Valley. Kind of.

Popular Talk Show Host Puts Spotlight on The Hudson Valley

The Hudson Valley has been in the spotlight recently thanks to one famous talk show host. The host of Last Week Tonight on HBO, John Oliver has put the limelight on Kingston, New York's Deising's Bakery.

In short, Oliver's crew won the equipment from the recently closed-down Red Lobster in Kingston at auction. Eric Deising had left a note on the door before he heard about the auction asking for a few of the abandoned stoves and ovens.

A media beef ensued. And now, there are new stoves at Deising's and a John Oliver Bear Cake. We asked Eric and Pete Deising if John Oliver has stopped by yet, and they said not yet...but they hope he will come by in the future.

It's not crazy to think that Oliver would make a trip out to Kingston. I mean the ladies of The Real Housewives of NY have visited the bakery in the past, why not John Oliver?
