Celebrity chef and Iron Chef America/The Next Iron Chef judge Donatella Arpaia has given birth! And on her birthday!

She and husband Dr. Allan Stewart welcomed a boy last Thursday, Sept. 15, at New York City's Columbia Presbyterian hospital.

The boy weighed in at a very healthy 8 lbs., 3 oz.

The date is also very special to Donatella because besides the fact that it's her birthday and now her son's, but it was also the one-year anniversary of the opening of her restaurant, Arpaia's.

September 15 is definitely a magical number for her. She must be thrilled!

Congratulations!

Chef Mario Batali Sued - For Stiffing Employees!

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

Take notes, Gordon Ramsay. This is exactly what NOT to do to fix your money problems.

Acclaimed chef Mario Batali is being sued by some of his former employees for allegedly running a tip-stealing scheme. According to a former bartender who used to work at one of Batali's El Lay joints, the Iron Chef screwed him and the others out of some serious $$$.

Supposedly, Batali and his partner concocted something called a "Wine Program." Basically, anytime tips were left on a credit cared, a percentage of that was kept for themselves, before giving the staff their dues. The employees also claim that they weren't paid promptly upon being let go and when they did work, they weren't given adequate breaks.

Now they are looking for some serious damages, which sucks for Batali because he is already saving up to pay off another group of people suing him…on the East Coast, for the same thing!

Oh boy! Doesn't instill too much confidence in your innocence, sir!
