REVENGE IS BEST SERVED… FISHY?

image.png

It only took the late night talk show host 7 years, but James Corden was finally able to get revenge on chef, Gordon Ramsay.

7 years ago Ramsay made Corden eat a fish eye on his show The F Word.

James explained that he appeared on the series with his family and agreed to eat a fish eye, after Gordon promised he would buy them dinner and wine.

He followed this with footage of the incident, before he announced that Gordon never followed through with his promise.

James’ parents Malcolm and Margaret whom were in the audience, yelled out and backed up Corden’s claim. His father even commented about a place they can dine at in Hollywood.

“You’ve got a restaurant in Hollywood and I’m free Saturday night!”

However James’ had other plans, he then produced a fish eye and told Gordon he would return the favour, if the chef eats the fish eye.

Gordon sniffed the eye in disgust, which prompted James to stir him on with the words: “It’s been seven years! Eat the eye!”

The chef started to eat the eye but as he went to wash it down with water which caused him to gag and spat everything out on to the table in front of him.

Obviously delighted in the reaction, Cordon was left in hysterics.

In other news every week starting August 8th, Apple Music will be streaming a new episode of Carpool Karaoke each week.

A host for the series is yet to be announced, James has confirmed that although he came up with the segment he will not be the host, he will however be the Executive Producer.

The newly released trailer reveals some A-list stars who will be jumping in the car and getting their sing on.

Sofia Vergara shows no shyness when it comes to flaunting her amazing figure.

At 45-years-oldĀ  the Modern Family actress posed nude for Women’s Health’s September, Naked Issue.

Within the article Vergara opens up about how her body has changed through the years and how she maintains her famous physique and how her husband actor, Joe Manganiello, appreciates her for being herself.

Modern Family actress, believes that posing naked for Women’s Health magazine was important for her to do because of the message it sends.

“Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body.” She points out “It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine.”

Even her husband had some thoughts of the cover.

“Joe’s like, F**k, you’re going to be naked in everything now? Why?” refering to her steamy shower scene in her upcoming spy thriller, Bent.

The Bent actress, has no issues with her age affecting her within Hollywood.

“I’m 45. Even if you want to, at this time in your life, you can’t be perfect, it’s not that you hate it, or that you’re upset about it, but it is reality. We’re changing. I see it happening to me. I want to look my age, but I want to look great. I think if you are obsessed with this ‘I want to look younger’ thing, you’re going to go crazy.”

The actress is accepting of her body, she does strive to eat healthy and works out with a trainer three or four times a week using an advanced Pilates machine, Megaformer.

“Joes built a very nice gym in the house, so I don’t have any excuses it’s not about having muscles or cut abs. I don’t have abs because I;m not ‘I need to be like a fit model with a perfect body’. That would take too much effort!”
