Restaurant mogul Gordon Ramsay is being sued by former business partner Rowen Seibel. The lawsuit alleges that Ramsay tried to run his businesses like a "dictatorship" and tried to take all the profits for himself.
"Gordon Ramsay attempted to run the business and make decisions … similar to his television personality on 'Hell's Kitchen' – as a dictatorship, without the proper authority and without consent of his partner," the paperwork filed in Manhattan states, according to Page Six.
Seibel and Ramsay ran the Fat Cow, which opened in 2012. Seibel has also licensed the Serendipity trademarks for restaurants in Las Vegas, Florida, and Washington D.C. Unfortunately, Seibel and Ramsay's relationship did not work out, and tensions soared when Ramsay selected the name the "Fat Cow" allegedly without Seibel's consent. That restaurant closed after being open less than two years. more >>
Graham cracker producer Honey Maid is celebrating a controversial advertisement featuring two gay men as parents in its "This is Wholesome" advertising campaign, which the company says has attracted 10 times more positive comments than negative ones.
The commercial published on YouTube on March 10 has been viewed more than 4 million times as of Friday afternoon and has sparked a barrage of conflicting views between proponents and opponents of homosexuality.
"Today we celebrate all families. From working moms to two moms; stay at home dads to single dads; adopted kids to surrogate kids. Honey Maid recognizes that the reality of family has changed, but the wholesome connections that all families share will endure.#thisiswholesome," noted the company on the video. more >>
A recent episode of science program "Cosmos" featured criticism of Young Earth Creationism by its host, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
In the "A Sky Full of Ghosts" episode, Tyson made arguments against the belief that the Earth and the universe are only several thousand years old. Tyson pointed to the Crab Nebula, an outer space entity found 6,500 light years away from earth, as proof that Young Earth Creationism was wrong.
The hit series "Modern Family" has been denounced as "poison" for its portrayal of homosexual relationships by Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association. His comments come on the heels of "Modern Family" star Ty Burrell stating that the show had led to "progress" among conservatives against homosexuality.
"'Modern Family,'" Fischer told radio host Kevin Miller, "is designed to make you think that same-sex households are wonderful and the optimum nurturing environment for children. We know that social research indicates exactly the opposite."
Fischer then went on to state that watching the show is "like getting a little bit of poison over a long period of time, eventually getting enough accumulation in where it can be kind of lethal to the organism." more >>
Every time comedian and talk show host Bill Maher blasts Christianity, calls Christians idiots, or describes God as a "psychopathic mass murderer" the web lights up. Religious news sites, or the Christian section of secular media, carry the story with headlines expressing "shock," and their readers dutifully respond with hysterical blog posts by the thousands.
His abrasive comments become the big subject on Christian radio and TV programs, and callers express outrage. All of which is exactly what Maher wants.
In a media-driven culture, it doesn't take insightful questions, great talent, or intellectual depth to get on the radar. All it takes is shock. Shock built careers for people like Howard Stern, Russell Brand, and Madonna. It's surprising to me that it still works, but the shock train rolls on. Based on his media persona, Bill Maher appears to be an incompetent theologian, a fairly hateful person, and an average comedian. But he's a master communicator. He understands how to push buttons and get a response – and he does it with regularity. Ratings of his show low? Nail Christians. Viewers tired of watching him? Say something shocking about God. more >>
