A jellyfish stung the “(expletive) hell” out of the sex organ of Vegas celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay while he was vacationing with his family in Sardinia, but he’s recovered, says London’s Daily Star newspaper.
Ramsay, who was recently in Vegas to oversee his several restaurants, told the Star he was scarred and couldn’t urinate for some time after the incident in the Mediterranean Sea.
Undaunted upon recuperation, he returned to the surf in a wet suit, boasting on one of his social media accounts, “No jellyfish bites on my size 15s either.”
Caesars Palace headliner Mariah Carey told the British TV talk show “Alan Carr: Chatty Man” she wanted the entire set torn down and reassembled in the opposite view to show her best angles, Carr told the London Sun.
“Mariah requested she only be filmed from the left side and that the set would have to be rotated 180 degrees to accommodate this,” Alan said Sunday in the Sun.
“We all laughed — I did my, ‘What are you like?’ face. But hers remained the same,” he said.
The crew didn’t rotate the set.
“I don’t think we actually could,” Carr said.
The London Mirror reports the Caesars star (who last month wore diamond jewelry during bathtime on Instagram) once demanded via her tour “rider” (her show contract) that kittens must await her backstage, along with vitamin water for use as dog bathwater.
Anybody want to spill the beans on her Caesars rider?
