    man, now I'm mad that I didn't record it this week. I never really set a SP for the show but if I remember it's on I usually record it. I saw an article on MSN today about these people losing their **** and reading this thread makes me want to watch it even more, lol. You never hear about these places after the show, aside from the little blurbs...I'm always wondering how they do down the road.

    No clue if they were hacked or not BUT I will say that it's not impossible. I signed into facebook on a phone at the verizon store once to test it out and forgot to sign out. People took liberties. So it DOES happen, lol. But based on what I'm reading about these peeps, they probably wrote it... Them getting hacked would actually be more believable in this case because the idea that a business owner could be that blatantly stupid is too hard to accept.

    Re: how the places do, down the road. The other day I stumbled across https://sites.google.com/site/ramsayskitchennightmares/. I don't know how accurate it is.

    They are claiming that their twitter, facebook, yelp and website were all hacked. Possible yes but far from probable. Especially considering that they have previously been shown to respond that way when criticized.

    Finally got around to watching this last night and, while we know some things are embellished for TV, the producers HAD to be certain to paint as truthful a picture as possible.

    The fact that Amy blatantly lied about making the cakes takes away all credibility she may have had and any lawyer would beat her down in a heartbeat.

    I completely dismiss any posts on FB or any of the social media sites since the show aired. Some are completely obvious (including the ones from morons who seem to think it's funny to create an account with a similar name to the couple and lace it with obscenities and profanity) and other not so, but they siply can't be trusted. After examining the original 'Joel' blog and response, I can only come to the conclusion that they ARE delusional!

    Was Amy on another cooking show like Chopped? She looked familiar, but I couldn't place it.

    I watched it this past weekend. It was very enjoyable but I would have hated to be an actual patron at that restuarant. Those owners were totally crazy. I know if they were located in the DC area, they would have closed down a long time ago with their attitude.

    I really wish that Ramsey had said something like "there are hundreds/thousands of restraunts out there who actually WANT my help and would do anything I say".

    It's a very high traffic area, across the street from where I went to high school. Probably the people who started hassling her were students, because they hassle everyone, but she overreacted and messing with her is probably the local pastime now. Pretty much anything could stay in business in that area, but she won't enjoy it...

    I believe her when she says she is a Christian. She's probably a member of the Wesboro Baptist Church.

    Wouldn't it have been obvious to Ramsey or the producers that those baked goods weren't made there? I didn't see one piece of baking equipment the entire episode. I thought that would come out during the show that she was lying.

    Amy made some argument that Walmart doesn't tell people that their branded products aren't made by them and she doesn't have to either. Customers are paying for her eye for good product apparently no matter the source. lol

    I'm not sure that he had time to confront her on whether she really made the cakes. She'd already lied about it and was completely dilusional about her food. Was it necessary to add the liar tag when it was obvious she wasn't what she claimed to be?

    I wonder if the producers knew about her past when they agreed to allow Gordon to film. After all, not disclosing stuff has cost reality contestants in other shows in the past.

    I love the way he corrected Samy saying "It's not a 'show' to me".

    There's a funny thing about the food industry -- cooking and baking are like two completely different countries, although they sometimes co-exist in the same space. The Great Divide is often revealed on shows like Top Chef, The Taste, etc. when the chefs are asked to make a dessert and you find out they've never made one.

    It probably would have been obvious to any pastry chef that the baked goods were made off-site, just as Ramsey can spot all the food that isn't cooked fresh. But I don't know how much experience Ramsey has himself, doing desserts or baking.

    I just watched it.

    What. Were. They. Thinking?

    This has got to be some sort set-up. No way they could have stayed in business with only one cook working one ticket at a time. And the kitchen is not that big to service that large of a dining room.

    I may need to go to Scottsdale in the fall. I may stop by in the fall if they are still open...
