I can't see her making any offensive remarks.
She's out there, to be sure, but within her own self, not to bring offense to others.
By the way, is she even on cooking programs now?
I don't watch them like I used to.

Worst Cooks. The last episode for this season will be Sunday.

Since Anne's a lesbian, wouldn't that be like a black person calling another black person the "n" word? You sure it was Anne or maybe you were thinking about Paula Deen?


I already know about that one.

Anne Burrell worked alongside Mario Batali on Iron Chef America as his sous chef before hosting several of her own shows on Food Network, but it seems the two celebrity chefs have more in common than that show. In 2009, she was sued for discriminating against female employees at Centro Vinoteca, a West Village restaurant where she used to be a chef.
According to the lawsuit, Burrell was accused of calling the plaintiffs, who were all women, a string of derogatory, and often sexually degrading names. She also reportedly made remarks about their cleavage, and is said to have openly commented on their sex lives.
The lawsuit also alleges that only female staff were treated in this manner. When they complained, Burrell allegedly had them fired. Although a settlement was reached in that case, Burrell has not commented on the validity of the accusations. Details of the settlement are not available.**

It was Guy Fieri who made the homophobic remark.

The story I read on that was from 2011.
Reportedly he said interviewing a gay couple/restaurant owners would make him uncomfortable "weird me out".
Whether or not he actually said that, who knows?

dislike 'er. the hair is odd, & i have odd- to a few- hair shades, so fer me to say a person's hair is silly..... & chef gear was made to protect u. u won't look pretty in a real-real not made 4 tv kitch'. u'll be sweating, running, swearing, yelling orders, calling orders, in a stained apron, hair hidden in 1 fashion or another,.......

& she growls. why~

Agreed. My son treat his staff with respect but if someone messes up they are spoken to in private, with witness, and he lays it on the line. He is bald.
