Gordon Ramsay made an appearance on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he attempted to teach Kimmel how to make scrambled eggs. After the British chef shouted at him to relax his elbows and stop being so tense, Kimmel responded, "It's because you're yelling at me!" Ramsay shot back, "I didn't know you were this s**ty!" When it came time to evaluate Kimmel's scrambled eggs, Ramsay slammed them for being "rubbery" and dumped them on the stage. He then demanded that Kimmel try again.

Vulture recently unearthed scenes from Robin Thicke’s feature film debut, a straight-to DVD flick filmed in 2012 that stars the womanizing singer as a slightly more douche-y version of himself. Making the Rules stars Jaime Pressly as Abby, an unhappily married Los Angeles chef who falls into an affair with her ex-boyfriend Shaun, played by Thicke, after a series of run-ins. Appropriately, hairdresser Shaun is a stud who engages in infidelity, stalks the woman he wants until she gives in and has a wardrobe that mainly consists of henleys with plunging necklines and leather jackets. Talk about art imitating life.
