I thought he was funny at times.

Customer: "You have about 700 people to feed and you only have 8 hours to get the meals ready. Are you up to the challenge?"

Robert: "Yes, I can do it."

Customer: " Oh. These stoves aren't working. You can't use them and you'll have to find some other way to bake the chicken."

Robert: Wait a minute, no one told me that. How am I supposed to cook all this chicken without any ovens? This is insane!"

Padded Resume Costs Chef TV Show - Food News Story - WGAL Lancaster

I think this is more of a personal vendetta by a Florida news paper. They are diligently attacking him at every turn. You have to wonder how much was just him talking and what was really on his resume submitted to the Food Network. But seriously, embellishing resumes is nothing new in the world today,.

I don't think the Florida paper ran more than one story. Irvine admitted that he lied and "embellished" his credentials. It was pretty stupid of him to claim he made Princess Diana's wedding cake and that he was himself Knighted by Queen Elizabeth.

They shouldn't post that if it was not true. And if it is a lie, then I hope that he sues the pants off them!

I don't see a lawsuit in his future, as he has admitted so many lies and fictions.

He would have a hard time proving damages after that, even if someone printed something about him that was not true.

IMO, RI cooked his own goose, so to speak.

Though I do like his show.

Cooked his own goose. Haha!! I just had to laugh at that one!

You're right, but when you're famous and popular and you've become a celebrity, it almost seems like the media is out to get ya!!

They just can't wait to "dig up the dirt" on people.

But you don't have to hand them the shovel and a map.

No, because they'll come looking for you. They got radar ears and eyes.

But I imagine that when someone puts lies on their resume, and their employer finds out about it, then their goose DOES get cooked.

At this point, people might be saying that he doesn't have the brains God gave a goose! Haha!!

If you read the Florida article, it also sounds like he's skirting creditors and investors as well. He's not one of my favorites, save when he's teamed with Guy or Tyler. He and Paula together were a bit much, IMHO.

I think he's a con who can cook and had good help. How many of us can cook? I can't imagine inventing knighthood, castles, and White House stories ... it's almost insulting that he thinks we're that stupid!

I honestly think that someone possibly fabricated this story by making it sound bigger than it already was.

Ridiculous! His show is fantastic and to not renew his contract simply because he did not work on Princess Diana's cake is petty. Big deal, he told a little white lie. He obviously can cook and manage a kitchen with ease.
