Gordon Ramsay at it again by kazzzz on 9 June 2009 12:32pm
 
Well, he's here in Melbourne, primarily for the Good Food and Wine Show and lots of other public foody appearances. And he's causing a bit of a kerfuffle!!

He was on one of the main muckraking current affairs shows, and he allegedly called the interviewer a lesbian and compared her to a pig (no evidence though).
All hell has broken loose, it's all over our news he's being followed by the media everywhere and floods of sympathy have poured in for poor said reporter.

What did they EXPECT?? Is Ramsay not known for his colourful outbursts? Did they think he'd have a quiet chat and a cuppa? The reporter in question is notorious for going on the attack all the time and she got exactly what she deserved, a tatse of her own medicine. She's been in this game for years, and suddenly when she's in the firing line she's all hurt and thin skinned? Even our bloody PM is sticking up for her!! The network, in retaliation cobbled together a series of backstage comments, mostly silly smutty comments to giggling makeup girls and cleaners, all thoroughly enjoying the attention. That's what he DOES for God's sake!
And all the while pulling in huge ratings for all the 'controversy".

Bah.

Love or hate Ramsay, you definately can't ignore him!

Well spoken Clagster.

Johnny, are you related to Gordon by any chance?
 
Re: Gordon Ramsay at it again by kazzzz on 9 June 2009 12:34pm
 
LOL.
And for the record, I think he's a bit of an arse but he's got heaps of charisma.

I love Ramsay and watch his show everyday. He's on BBC America several times during the day. Being a successful perfectionist can make you crazy like that.

It was also reported on over here. I think it said he was on her show and was really nice to her and they got on well, then he made some remarks about her on another show.

I would take some issue with patty on her comment: I don't think trying to be a 'pefectionist' is a valid enough excuse for him pouring forth from his mouth a stream of ear-splitting profanities and abuse. For example,Heston Blumenthal is also a top chef and aspires to perfection but his language is always cool,controlled and polite. I suspect Ramsay does it deliberately to bump up his TV ratings.
In his own autobiography,Ramsay recounts how continually standing close to hot stoves and hot saucepans in restaurant kitchens has had a disastrous effect on his sperm count. He went to the doctor's and had it checked out.

Are you saying he's a bit of a w-anker ?

I've seen snippets of "Hell's Kitchen." No, thanks.
I'll stick with Chris Kimball and company on "America's Test Kitchen."

Well Gordon doesn't really do your traditional Jamie Oliver/Two Fat Ladies (ace show) cookery show for those at home looking for a new recipe for the family, he's more about working with restaurant owners and /or upandcoming chefs.
BB Heston is just WEIRD, who actually wants to use a recipe with gold frankincence and myrrh in it? Or some caviar with white chocolate? Or sticking vibrators underneath jelly to make it wobble?

Ramsay has issued an apology today to the journalist. Ah well.

Has Kevin Rudd not got more to do with his time than get involved in this kind of thing ?
Oh well, I know not much happens in Australia.
