Private chefs make a lot of money cooking for celebrities. However, Kid Cudi's fans say he shouldn't pay his private chef a dime.

Their main gripe was that the food should look like a chef prepared it.

One fan wrote: "We [really] using the title "chef" loosely these days."

Another person wrote: "so basically we can all be his chef."

And a third person wrote: "glad to know im eating better than kid cudi."

Rihanna is meeting the needs of consumers by supplying coveted ketchup packets in her new Fenty Beauty "Ketchup or Makeup" collection.

You're probably wondering what ketchup has to do with makeup.

Maybe you've heard by now that ketchup packets are in short supply at fast food restaurants due to a nationwide ketchup shortage.

Rihanna is teaming with MSCHF for her unusual Fenty Beauty collaboration that features six ketchup packets. However, the packets aren't all filled with ketchup.

Some packets are filled with Fenty Beauty's cherry Gloss Bomb lip gloss. The set can be purchased for $25 via ketchupormakeup.com.

$25 isn't much to pay for ketchup when you can't find ketchup packets anywhere.

California farmers are sounding the alarm on the tomato shortage that is affecting consumer needs around the country.

Ketchup packets were the first to disappear from fast food restaurants as record-high inflation and drought limited the tomato supply.

"The number-one thing that we say is that water is the 'it' thing when it comes to growing tomatoes," California farmer Mitchell Yerxa told Fox & Friends. "If you don't have enough of it, you can't get the crop you need."

A NYC store has taken the unusual step of locking up canned meat to prevent rising theft during the recession.

Spam canned meat is popular with shoplifters and homeless people because it is cheap, nonperishable, and doesn't require refrigeration to stay fresh.

Spam canned meat is marinated in chemical preservatives to keep the meat from decaying for years while it's inside the airtight can.

As inflation rises, stores are locking up specific items to make it harder for thieves to steal. Shoppers were surprised to see cans of $3.99 Spam locked in translucent anti-theft cases at a Duane Reade location in NYC, according to the New York Post.

"To put Spam in a cage is stupid — and kind of insulting to the customers that would buy it," shopper Dennis Snow said, according to Fox News.

A can of Starkist Tuna, which sells for $1.89, is also locked up at the city's Port Authority bus depot where crime has spiked 52%, Fox News reports.

The most commonly stolen items include cigarettes, over-the-counter medications, contraceptives, liquor, teeth-whitening strips, and health and beauty products, according to MSN News.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration is investigating a Miami-based private chef whose mystery Pink Sauce condiment is taking the Internet by storm.

TikTok user @chef.pii went viral last month after she posted a video promoting her Pepto Bismol-colored Pink Sauce.

Dozens of TikTok users shared videos that show them pouring the pink goop on burgers, fries and KFC chicken.

Pii claimed to have sold 700 bottles of the sauce at $20 a pop. Then came reports of customers getting sick from food poisoning.

Chef Pii originally refused to tell customers what was in the pink bottles.

Then she finally posted a video revealing the ingredients.

  • Water
  • Sunflower seed oil
  • Raw honey
  • Distilled vinegar
  • Garlic Pitaya (Dragon Fruit)
  • Pink Himalayan sea salt
  • Dried spices
  • Lemon juice
  • Milk
  • Citric acid

According to the FDA, anyone who sells condiments must register the location of the facility where the condiments are made.

The sauce is reportedly made in Chef Pii's home kitchen and shipped from a nearby UPS store.

Additionally, the FDA requires information such as testing, food safety compliance and "scientific protocols."

Despite containing dairy products, the bottles are not packed in dry ice or ice packs. Some customers complained that the sauce smells "rotten" upon arrival.

Chef Pii posted another video on Friday apologizing for spelling mistakes on the labels.

"I'm not only human. I am not perfect. This is a small business that's just moving really, really fast," she said.

In the video, Pii explained that her team is working to lower the cost of the sauce from it's current $20 per bottle price. She also claims her sauce is in "lab testing," and each bottle contains 30 servings.

A new version of the Pink Sauce label includes a refrigeration warning.

The Pink Sauce is not FDA-approved.

Hundreds of DoorDash customers took to social media to show off food they ordered for free. A glitch in the online food ordering app led to thousands of free food orders.

The glitch occurred on Thursday, July 7, when DoorDash customers noticed their cards weren't being charged for delivery orders.

Hundreds of customers flooded social media showing off large orders of steak, lobster, and top shelf wine at over $1,000 a bottle.

Some customers posted receipts showing thousands of dollars of worth of food they got for free. Ironically, the customers didn't tip their delivery drivers.

DoorDash discovered the problem and attributed it to an error with its payment processing service. The company is working on canceling fraudulent orders.

In a statement to The Street, DoorDash said:

"On the evening of July 7th DoorDash experienced a payment processing issue, and as a result, some users were able to check out without an authorized form of payment for a short period of time," the statement says. "We were subsequently notified that some users were placing fraudulent orders, and we immediately corrected the issue."

DoorDash added:

"We're actively canceling fraudulent orders, and are in touch with merchants impacted to ensure they are compensated for any unauthorized orders they may have received."

Dozens of outraged customers deleted their Postmates app over the company's "Bottom-Friendly Menu" campaign.

The controversial tweet was part of Postmate's "Bottom-Friendly" menu campaign that includes the hashtag #EatWithPride.

"You shouldn't miss a good meal for a good time. That's why this Pride, we've teamed up with @DrEvanGoldstein and @smartthrob to create the world's first Bottom-Friendly Menu (yup, it's real). #EatWithPride."

The tweet included a graphic that explained the proper diet for "tops" and "bottoms" to ensure that everyone has a good time.

"If you're a top, it seems you can eat whatever you want," said the narrator over an image of a masculine eggplant wearing leather and chains.

The narrator explained that men who are "bottoms" must be more picky about what they eat to avoid "causing a traffic jam in your digestive system making a mess of your evening."

A Twitter follower wrote in response to the campaign:

"Honestly, this is the level of Pride other corps should strive for. If you're not literally helping us have sex, can you really call yourself an ally?"

To which Postmates responded:

"Exactly. We're tired of heterosexual sex being the main focus of sexual education. Homosexual sex, specifically bottoming, is all too often omitted and stigmatized. Not this year. Happy Pride!"

Offended Twitter followers deleted their Postmates apps.

Kourtney Kardashian opened up about her and husband Travis Barker's IVF struggles.

Kourtney, 43, shares three children with her ex, Scott Disick while Travis is a father of 2. But the power couple has struggled to fall pregnant with their first child.

During Thursday night's episode of "The Kardashians," Kourtney shared the advice her fertility doctor gave her.

BACKGRID

"I can't remember what he said, if [my thyroid level] was low or high. He told us, well, he told me that the thing that would help it was drinking Travis' [semen] like, four times a week."

Barker joked, "I love this doctor."

"Oooooooh I'm using this for evil," comic actor Marlon Wayans joked on social media.

Cosmopolitan UK spoke with a women's health doctor about the unorthodox advice.

Dr. Verity Biggs explained, "If semen is ingested, it is processed very much like any other food or drink we ingest. It enters the stomach and is broken down and digested."

Dr. Biggs said she is "not sure" if drinking semen can increase fertility.

"The composition of semen can be affected by diet and lifestyle. Semen contains chemicals like melatonin, oxytocin and progesterone and even anti-oxidants [which] in turn could possibly help to improve mood or have stress-relieving properties."

Cassandra Freeman, best known for playing Aunt Viv on TV drama "Bel-Air," criticized Walmart for its "celebration edition" Juneteenth ice cream. The actress said the frozen treat is just plain wrong.

Juneteenth is a federal holiday commemorating the emancipation of enslaved Africans in America. The holiday was popularized by American singer Beyonce in a music video. It is observed every June 19.

TMZ bumped into Cassandra on Monday at LAX and asked her about Walmart's "Celebration Edition Juneteenth Ice Cream" which has been trending all day on Black Twitter.

Walmart is being dragged on Black Twitter for its newest flavor, red velvet and cheesecake ice cream along with this message on the package: "Share and celebrate African-American culture, emancipation and enduring hope."

Cassandra said Ben and Jerry's would never make the same mistake. "Ben and Jerry's smart. They got heart," she said.

She also blasts the retail giant for its corporate greed and shames whoever greenlit the product for not reading their history books.

"What's next? September 11 ice cream? You know, some 9-11 ice cream," she said.

Desperate parents say some retailers charge $600 for baby formula amid the nationwide shortage.

Worried parents called on the U.S. Food & Drug Administration to fix the problem by reopening a Michigan factory that was hit by a bacterial outbreak.

One mother whose baby has severe dairy allergies shared photos of a rash on her son's back after she was forced to switch formula brands.

One father took to social media to say he traveled 20 miles from his Pennsylvania home for formula for his infant son. He resorted to paying $600 for baby formula on eBay.

Mothers who are unable to breastfeed expressed their frustration over the shortage.

"I was diagnosed with cancer when I was three months pregnant. Breastfeeding is not an option," one mother said.

The Biden administration plans to meet with manufacturers and retailers to address the nationwide formula shortage.

Congress will hold meetings in two weeks to address the shortage.

Question: Is the baby formula shortage affecting you or anyone you know?

Paula Patton was vacationing in Mexico with her son, Julian, when her mom's original fried chicken recipe went viral on social media.

Black Twitter dragged the actress for washing the chicken in cold water and putting seasoning in the cooking oil instead of marinating the chicken in seasoning overnight the way Jamaicans do it.

Paula was gracious and acknowledged the criticism in a video on her Instagram account. She didn't go in too hard on her critics.

"I just wanted to respond and say, listen, I get it. It might look crazy. It is the way we do it. My mom taught me. It is my mom's recipe," she said.

Paula also said, because of the way the video was edited, it may not look like she washed the chicken in water long enough. She said she did wash the chicken, because she fed the chicken to her son and his entire school.

There is no need to soak chicken in vinegar or lemon juice because bacteria can't survive in 425-degree temperatures in the oven.

"It's all good, because everybody's got their own way of making things," Paula said. "I'll take suggestions. I make a new kind of fried chicken, but I'm gonna always make my mom's chicken the way that she did it. We put the seasoning in the oil and all that. It's just the way we do it."

Not everyone can throw down in the kitchen like Colonel Sanders. Take Chef Paula Patton, for example.

Paula's original fried chicken recipe has all of twitter dragging her for daring to share her mom's secret recipe.

TikTok user TheTrackQueen criticized Paula for washing her chicken in cold water.

Cooks wash chicken in cold water because bacteria can't survive in an oven set to 425 degrees farenheit. Vinegar is for cleaning counters, not cleaning chicken.

The video went viral, racking up over 5 million views.

Twitter users are still dragging poor Paula. Things really went left when Twitter blamed Paula's mixed race for her original chicken recipe.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Dear Black People: Spend more time with your mixed children and teach them how to make Black and Southern food properly. Paula Patton’s chicken is a disgrace to our cuisine."

Everyone fries chicken differently. Who are they to tell Paula how to fry her chicken?

Imagine if messy Twitter users were around back in the day when Colonel Sanders created his secret recipe. KFC restaurants would be non-existent today.

A McDonald's restaurant in China has installed exercise bikes for customers who crave junk food while burning off unwanted calories.

In a viral TikTok video uploaded by user @cris13yu, and viewed over 32 million times, McDonald's diners can be seen munching on Big Macs and fries while riding stationary exercise bikes.

It isn't clear if McDonald's plans to install exercise bikes in restaurants in the U.S. where obesity rates increased 30.5% to 42.4% from 1999-2000 through 2017-2018.

Newsweek contacted McDonald's and @cris13yu for comment but did not hear back in time for publication.

Rumors are spreading that NeNe Leakes is having trouble keeping chefs/cooks at The Linnethia Lounge.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member put out a call for chefs/cooks to basically work for free at The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Ga for a few weeks.

In a post on Instagram, she wrote:

"The Linnethia Lounge is looking for the best cooks/chefs in the Atlanta area to take over our kitchen for 1 week. Every week there will be a different cook/chef for next few weeks! Our lounge guest will be the judge! The WINNER will have the kitchen permanently in January to start their very own restaurant in The Linnethia Lounge."

Trolls on IG suggested NeNe wants cooks to work for free until after the holidays.

NeNe has denied reports that she is low on cash after the death of her husband, Gregg Leakes, in September.

The 53-year-old mom-of-two listed the couple's marital home for $4 million and slashed the list price twice to $3.4 million after receiving no offers.
