Nigella Might Postpone Plans For US Domination Due To Travel Restrictions


Nigella Lawson

UK fans have mostly forgotten about Nigella Lawson’s drugs scandal from last year, but her record is far from clean – at least as far as US authorities are concerned. The celebrity cook has been banned from crossing into US territory and she found out the hard way. Lawson was blocked at Heathrow when trying to board a plane to the states on Sunday morning, the Daily Mail reports.

Nigella Lawson
Nigella may have left the trouble behind her... but not everyone has.

The self-styled “domestic goddess” was forced to confess under oath during a trial last year that she had snorted cocaine seven times and smoked cannabis on numerous occasions – a fact, which hasn’t affected her public persona in any major way, but might still harm her career. Scotland Yard didn’t take any action on the case last year, but US authorities might not be as lenient. When trying to board her plane last weekend, Lawson was blocked mere steps away from the British Airways jet. She is thought to have checked in and passed security before being told she could not board her plane.

The 54-year-old allegedly attempted to board a plane to Los Angeles from Heathrow but was informed, once she was through security, that she would not be able to enter the US if she boarded the plane.

Yep, Charles Saatchi Just Challenged A Journalist To A Cage-Fight


Charles Saatchi Nigella Lawson

Charles Saatchi, whose marriage to Nigella Lawson fell apart after he was photographed with his hand on her throat at a popular Chelsea restaurant, has challenged a columnist at The Spectator to a cage fight. The 70-year-old art collector wrote to the magazine in response to a piece by Taki Theodoracopulos, 77, who suggested that, "expecting a pornographer to have a heart is like counting upon Charles Saatchi to act like a gentleman."

Charles SaatchiWho Would Win In A Fight Between Charles and Taki? There's Only One Way To Find Out.....FIGHT.

Writing in his column on 18 Janaury, Taki said Saatchi had a "coward's bullying manner" though in a vitriolic response in Wednesday's magazine, Saatchi said it was "hapless of you to spring to Nigella's defence last week, as she always found you toe-curlingly vile, and would have been aghast at having you as her valiant supporter."

Nigella Lawson Anthony Bourdain

It’s fair to say the 2013 – the tail end of it at least – was tough for Nigella Lawson; a very public split from her husband was followed by an equally public court case, which saw two of her former aides acquitted over charges of fraudulently spending £685,000 between 2008 and 2012.

Nigella Lawson Seeks Harmony Through Food On "The Taste"


Nigella Lawson

Nigella Lawson has had a year riddled with conflict. After a very public divorce from art mogul Charles Saatchi, Lawson suffered a minor blow to her reputation, when she was accused of a cocaine addiction during the fraud trial of Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo. The Grillo sisters were cleared of unauthorised spending of £685,000 on household credit card and taxi accounts, but Nigella didn’t escape the trial unscathed, and was forced to admit to her rrecreational drug use.

Nigella LawsonGood Old Nigella!

The festive season is certainly high time for hedonism and over-indulgence: for some this can mean heavy-drinking, retail therapy, binge eating or perhaps the consumption of the less legal kind. However, it’s widely accepted that the best bit of Christmas is the food. Be it an oven-fresh joint stewing in its own juices, mountainous piles of crispy roast potatoes or a Christmas pudding doused in lashings of brandy sauce.

ABC Will Still Air "The Taste" But Can US Audiences Accept Nigella Lawson's Controversial Image?


Nigella Lawson

At the beginning of 2013, with The Taste – a competitive cooking show starring Nigella Lawson – the British “domestic goddess” was set to finally conquer the American market, more than a decade after launching her first effort in 2001. Unfortunately for her, 2013 didn’t turn out to be as successful in terms of her personal life.

Nigella Lawson
The sultry hostess has had some trouble adjusting to the more wholesome demands of the American market.

This month Nigella, on the other side of a widely publicized divorce, was inadvertently accused of drug abuse. And while the allegations probably won’t shake her public profile in the UK, cultivated over decades, American audiences just aren’t as familiar with Nigella’s signature cooking and presenting style. This could prove detrimental to her shaky success on US soil.

"That Tum Is The Truth": Nigella Lawson Refuses Airbrushing For New US Cookery Show


Nigella Lawson

Iconic British foodie Nigella Lawson has been working on a new ABC cooking programme called 'The Taste'. Plenty of publicity has gone into the show including some enormous billboards of all the presenters, including Lawson. Although she was already going to be scaled up enormously, she was still very adamant that they were not to airbrush her at all. 

"Although it was very thrilling to think of being up on a billboard in LA and around the States," she says on her website, "I was very strict and English and told them they weren't allowed to airbrush my tummy out. Wise? Hmmm. But that tum is the truth and is come by honestly, as my granny would have said."

Nigella never needs airbrushing, she has a bone structure that almost defies belief, with cheek bones that could cut diamonds and the kind of hourglass figure that every woman and man is after. Defying the falsehood and superficiality of airbrushing is quite in tune with the show's premise as 'The Taste' takes the same premise as the singing show, 'The Voice', following the idea that like talent, taste should also be judged blind. It is, literally, all about the taste and cannot be judged on who cooked or what it looks like. Likewise,  Lawson feels she can only be seen for who she really is, not a photoshopped version. She is joined by chefs Anthony Bourdain and Ludo Lefebvre, and restaurateur Brian Malarkey as the judges of four teams of mixed professional and amateur cooks to impress them all with eliminations each week.
