Kitchen Nightmares renewed; someone wrote “Gordon is shit” graffiti near Ramsay’s house

Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, the dumbed-down US version of his great UK series Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, has been renewed for a third season by Fox. The second season is now airing Fridays at 9, and has a number of episodes to go, so the third season likely won’t debut until at least fall, if not next winter.

Meanwhile, in London, someone wrote anti-Ramsay graffiti on a wall near his house. The graffiti said “Gordon is shit” and “Ramsay is a douche,” and the use of the word “douche” has The Sun speculating that “the culprit could be AMERICAN.”

The paper reports that “Neighbours believe the vandal was trying to target the 43-year-old’s star’s nearby home but got the address wrong.”
