Actress Becomes Fifth Woman To Accuse Mario Batali Of Sexual Harassment

Filed under: Icky Icky PooFood

no title

In case you missed it, Mario Batali is the latest high-powered man to be taken down by sexual misconduct accusations.

After four women, three of whom were employees, accused him of sexual harassment in an Eater exposé, the celebrity chef stepped down from his business and his role on TV's The Chew.

Batali admitted the behavior but said he didn't remember the women specifically — so not shocking there are more victims out there.

One woman who saw the story was Siobhan Thompson, an actress whom you may have seen on comedy shows like Adam Ruins Everything. Thompson told CBS This Morning that Batali groped her breasts when she worked at Del Posto in New York City.

We wonder if more women will come forward. Either way, it seems we won't be seeing much more of Molto Mario anytime soon.

Does this mean everything's just dandy in paradise?

While Bey was all smiles, her husband was much more somber. But that doesn't mean he wasn't smiling and jumping with joy on the inside! We don't know his life!

As far as fashion goes, Mrs. Carter put in more effort there as well, dressed in a lovely pink floral maxi dress and black leather jacket, while Jay just wore a "Greatness is a Process" shirt and black pants.

Well, we certainly hope he's working on being a great husband, and that it doesn't become too long of a process for him! LOLz!

No, but seriously, we wish you two crazy kids the best.

Mario Batali's Eatery Gets Sued…By It's Own Workers

Filed under: Legal Matters

mario batalis four star restaurant sued by its own workers

What better way to celebrate being awarded a fourth star by The New York Times than getting sued by 27 workers, claiming they weren't paid legal wages!

Mario Batali's new restaurant in NYC, Del Posto, is the basis of a lawsuit filed in federal court by restaurant workers who claim that their managers improperly pooled tips and withheld some gratuities on wine and cheese sales.

According to the lawsuit, workers were awarded gratuities based on a point system, which operates as follows:

Captains - highest rung on waitstaff ladder - 6 points

Bartenders - 5 points

"Front Waiters" and Food "Expediters" - 4 points

Stockers - 2 points

Also according to the lawsuit, workers claimed they were getting short-handed on their share of a 23 percent service charge that is billed to patrons, which they all assumed was a gratuity.

These workers got flat fees of $150-$250 per shift, and they're seeking compensation which includes backpay, unspecified damages, and attorney's fees.

Hopefully you can get this all sorted out, Batali! Sure, you make wonderful food, but do you really feel comfortable knowing that you're mistreating all of your workers?

Thoughts???
