Chef Gordon Ramsay doesn't fake it

Mean-as-hell Chef Gordon Ramsay won a libel suit against a London newspaper that claimed he faked scenes for his British reality show, called Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. (He also scares the pants off wanna-be chefs in FOX's Hell's Kitchen) In Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay helps save failing restaurants. The newspaper, The Evening Standard, claimed that the restaurants were set up to look like health hazards and that Ramsay placed an incompetent chef in at least one restaurant. The newspaper admitted its defeat after a judge ruled against it. The paper will pay $138,000 in damages to Ramsay and print an apology.
