TV Chef Jamie Oliver Slams Reporter for Weight Questions

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver lashed out this week at a female reporter in Melbourne, Australia when she asked him if he had gained some weight.

The Daily Mail reports that Oliver responded: "I don't know. I am very healthy. Are you from a tabloid? Thank you for noticing, you b****."

Oilver added: "I do my best. Working in the food business is quite hard when someone is constantly asking you to try things. I eat fresh. I train twice a week. I could definitely do better, but I am trying to do my best like most people when they hit 30."

Kimberly Yorio,  Oliver's spokesperson, told Australia's ABC News that Oilver had not put on pounds: "I can say for a fact he hasn’t gained any weight. They were bad pictures."
