Gordon Goes After Mario, Batali Baggin' On Ramsay

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsMedia Minute

When will these two just grow up?

Things aren't well between Iron Chef Mario Batali and Hell's Kitchen's Gordon Ramsay.

What's the beef????

It all started with some insults and name-calling, you know, like they do in 5th grade.

Apparently over a year and a half ago Batali said his rival's culinary skills were a bit dull and outdated for the New York crowd and that he didn't really get NY.

That's when Ramsay supposedly got bothered and started calling Batali "Fanta Pants" behind his back since the hefty cook is often spotted wearing orange shorts.

Luckily, we haven't spotted him wearing those shorts in a while. Though he's still obsessed with the orange Crocs, especially since he became the $pokesperson for the new Crocs Bistro shoe back in 2007.

However, in retaliation, Batali has now banned Ramsay from all his restaurants!

Says the sensitive cook, "I've banned him from my restaurants. Ramsay's people call, trying to book tables, and I say no. I won't have him in there. Gordon bugs me . . . Now he goes about town calling me Fanta Pants."

However, Fanta Pants does add that if Gordon "called me himself and said, 'Let's sit down for a drink.' I'm sure it would be fine. We'd be cool. But right now it's not cool."

As for Ramsay, his rep just said the two childish chefs will "get together someday and have a good laugh about it all."

In the mean time, we smell a publicity stunt!

    Gordon Ramsay is a great cook and is entertaining on the other hand Mario Batali is fat, and when he cooks he touches his nose or sneezes or touches his face, and brushes the sweat off and then uses the hands without washing them and prepares the food, I've seen it on his show.

    "It all started with some insults and name-calling, you know, like they do in 5th grade." That's funny, isn't that how you make your living?

    'Fanta Pants' is the British insult to anyone with red hair. It's got nothing to do with clothing!



  10. 10

    Ramsey could just attack those FUGLY crocs Batali is wearing.

    I don't understand why people wear those UNLESS they work in healthcare.

    Gwynnie may be pals with Mario but to me, he's unwatchable. Adore Gordon but he's starting to resemble a shar pei with that wrinkled forehead.

    "Fanta Pants" is a derogatory slang word for "redhead" in the UK, just like "Ranga" (derived from Orangutan) in Australia…

    Team Chef Ramsay. I love him!



  21. 21

    Team Batali!



  22. 22

    ew when are people gonna stop wearing crocs!!! ahhh!!!



  23. 23

    "Now he goes about town calling me Fanta Pants." is CLEARLY a quote from someone British. We don't say "goes ABOUT town" in America.

    Nice try fake ass rumor makers.



  24. 24

    funny that hells kitchen is starting up again and this story comes up bringing gordon ramsey into the media!!! its probs a stunt like you say!



  25. 25

    why dont they just fuck each other in the ass instead



  26. 26

    Mario Batali is getting ridiculously obese. I've been watching him for years on the Cooking Network and he has literally exploded in size. He better get some of that lard off stat.

    Anyone who wears orange crocs in public and looks like a fat slob should be banned from his own restaurant. Take a shower at least fat ass.



  28. 28

    YAWN

    Gordon Ramsay doesn't have a lot of room to talk - he's had an embarassing affair that is ending his marriage and now he is bankrupt! How the mighty fall…..



  30. 30

    Re: Craptastic77 – What is the Brits' hangup with redheads??? Is it a racist anti-Irish thing???? Leave it to the English to be about the most judgemental people on earth and they have no room to talk! They are the mutts of Europe!



  31. 31

    Gordon Ramsey's great, beats fanta pants hands down.

    That photo of Ramsey entering his mistresses hotel room was hillarious, he even looked like he knew he was busted.



  32. 32

    I love Batali, but he really has to get rid of those horrible crocs. YIKES!



  33. 33

    you of all people are saying they act like 5th graders? what does that say about your maturity level? a 3 year old?



  34. 34

    Mario's food looks DAMN good but I must say….. I LOVE me some Gordon Ramsey… and not just for the food baby…



  35. 35

    Gordon better be careful, Mario might sit on him,cook him up and EAT him

    Batali is a chef; Ramsey is a dickwad.



  37. 37

    Batali, you need to lose some fucking weight before you croak with a hamburger stuck in your mouth.

    Gordon, you sweet, sexy man… keep doing what you're doing… hot beast!!



  38. 38

    dude - he calls him fanta pants because he's a red head therefore red pubes. not red shorts you moron!



  39. 39

    Haha Fanta Pants… Crocs are stupidest looking shoe I've ever seen. Probably worse than socks and sandals.
