The F word
Cover your ears, kids: As soon as he was finished signing autographs and posing for photos with admirers during a visit to “Kitchen Nightmares” restaurant Prohibition Gastropub in Everett, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay jetted to Los Angeles to announce yet another cooking show — “MasterChef Junior.”.
In this one, budding chefs ages 8 to 13 put their cooking skills to the test just like competitors in the adult version of MasterChef. The Buzz assumes they also must wear earmuffs to protect them from Ramsay’s trademark outbursts of obscenities.
Bring all offers: For the second time in just a few years, Newsweek has been sold. The online-only publication, once a major print weekly that competed for readers with Time magazine, was sold to the owner of the International Business Times.
Terms of the sale were not disclosed, but former owner IAC/InterActive was said to be willing to accept an RV or a trailerable boat as partial trade.
Fifty-two candles: There was a special birthday celebration in the nation’s capital Sunday.
Fifty-two years ago, President Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii.
