Bobby Flay “Quit” Food Network Show During Filming-
A joke celebrity chef Bobby Flay played during “Iron Chef Showdown” filming this summer was a bad idea.
The celebrity chef was rumored to have walked away from the franchise after he showed off a shirt that read “THIS IS MY LAST IRON CHEF BATTLE EVER” during a filming of an episode last summer.
Flay admits to “People” it was a bad joke. “This past summer when I was in production on Iron Chef Showdown, I wore a T-shirt to have a little fun during my last battle this season. In hindsight, it was probably not the best decision because it’s just creating confusion.”
It’s unknown if the show will premiere as planned on Nov. 8 as Flay’s episode features chef John Besh, who resigned from his own company on Monday amid allegations that he enabled a culture of sexual harassment in his restaurants.

Bill Cosby is nearly bankrupt due to his legal problems.
The New York Post reports the disgraced comic is seeking a 30 million dollar loan to “pay for his mounting legal bills as he faces a retrial for sexual assault.”
Cosby is trying to convince the banks to use his 12,000-square-foot townhouse in New York City as collateral. A source revealed, (quote) “Cosby must be desperate. But the lenders aren’t keen to give Cosby the money. They don’t think he has enough equity.”
An additional issue for the banks is trying to sell the foreclosed property if Cosby defaults on the high-interest loan. They fear it would be impossible to find a buyer where “they’ll be sleeping in Cosby’s bedroom.”
Talk About It:
- The retrial is scheduled for the spring.
- More than four dozen women accused Cosby of sexual assault.
