Chef Gordon Ramsay is finished with yelling at people in the food service industry — at least when it comes to his show “Kitchen Nightmares.” “As filming comes to a close on the latest series of ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ I’ve decided to stop making the show,” Ramsay said in a statement on his website Monday. “I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.” “Kitchen Nightmares” finds Ramsay visiting struggling restaurants and offering them his unique brand of tough love in order to get them back on track. The show has run on Fox since 2007 after launching in the UK in 2004. For those who will miss Ramsay’s, say, charm, “I’ll be continuing with my other shows,” he says in his statement. And no doubt finding new people to yell at.

Cobain's daughter takes issue with death comments

Lana del Rey’s recent comment that she wishes she were already dead irked Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain, who knows a little something about musicians dying young. “The death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticise ... I’ll never know my father because he died young and it becomes a desirable feat because people like you think it’s ‘cool’ ... Well, it’s (expletive) not,” Cobain tweeted over the weekend. “Embrace life, because you only get one life.” Her tweets were later deleted, but she left this one up: “I’m not attacking anyone. I have no animosity towards Lana, I was just trying to put things in perspective from personal experience.” Del Rey, meanwhile, is set to debut at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Final sales figures will be out Wednesday, but early figures suggest the album could sell between 175,000 and 180,000 copies its opening week.
