The Facebook page of an Arizona bakery became a national story after the owners of Amy’s Baking Company were featured on Gordon Ramsay’s FOX show.
But the insane-seeming duo now says they had nothing to do with the EPIC rants that followed their Kitchen Nightmares appearance, which was ridiculed online.
Instead, they’re playing the “hacking” card.
The couple’s behavior on the show was beyond bad – it was even too much for Ramsay, who walked out before renovations in the May 10 episode.

For Broward County, Fla., law enforcement officials, porn has never been so useful. But we’re not talking about porn of the Farrah Abraham variety.
If it weren’t for a shared photo of a juicy steak – known as “food porn” in social media parlance – a major identity theft ring would still be operational.
Nathaniel Troy Maye, 44, and Tiwanna Tenise Thomason, 39, were arrested after a photo he posted online led police to Morton’s steakhouse in Ft. Lauderdale.
Maye, from Harlem, and Thomason, from Miramar, Fla., were being tracked by investigators after an anonymous person recentlyMore >
McDonald’s is adding three new Quarter Pounders to its menu and phasing out Angus offerings as it looks to focus its attention on one of its most popular brands.
The company says the new burgers will replace its meatier Angus third-pounders, which were among the most expensive items on its menu at around $4 to $5.
The Quarter Pounders will come in two of the same varieties as the Angus burgers, Bacon and Cheese and Deluxe, and Habanero Ranch as well.
The new Quarter Pounder line will use a bun that has eight grams of whole grains, while original Quarter Pounders will stay withMore >

Katie Couric has perfected the art of easy conversation on TV.
Easy, nutritious meals for her kids? That’s more challenging.
One ingredient that’s always the menu, however? Milk.
“When you’re adding milk to your breakfast you’re getting all sorts of added benefits,” says the talk-show host in a new ad with girls Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.
“You’re getting protein when you put it in your cereal,” observes Katie, a paid spokesperson for the National Milk Mustache “Got Milk?” campaign.
“You’re getting calcium when you add it to coffee or just drinking it straight up.”
Britney Spears loves her some KFC. Finger-lickin’ good, y’all.
The 31-year-old mother of two was spotted leaving a Kentucky Fried Chicken in Thousand Oaks, Calif., with takeout (and bodyguard, but no David Lucado) in tow.
Awesomely, Britney stopped by KFC after a photo shoot … for fitness mag Shape. Hey, she still looks awesome, so whatever she’s doing is working for her!

Like countless other young Americans, Honey Boo Boo has been selling Girl Scout cookies.
To her hundreds of thousands of fans online, and the chagrin of the Girl Scouts of the USA.
Honey Boo Boo posted the above ad on her Facebook page, which has 701,000 likes.
She also drew the organization’s ire by posting photos of stacks of boxes she sold.
HBB is not selling the cookies for herself, it’s worth nothing, but for a friend. Nevertheless, to say didn’t go down well with the organization is an understatement.

This is not the sort of prize anyone is hoping to find in his or her cereal box.
Kellogg’s announced on its website late last week that it had recalled numerous boxes of Special K Red Berries because they were contaminated with glass fragments.
The company encourages consumers to check “any packages you may have in your home” and if they match the information below, “do not eat the food.”
You may contact Kellogg’s in order to be issued a replacement coupon.
There have been no reports yet of any injuries associated with the product, but check your items at home now to see ifMore >
The Real Housewives of Atlanta “Praise the Pageant.” If only they would have taken the time for a dress rehearsal. We recap all the bloopers in our THG +/- review.
Cynthia throws her Miss Renaissance Pageant with lots of pushing and little polish. Minus 20. Perhaps a dress rehearsal or two would have helped.
Where to begin?
How about with actor and celebrity host Boris Kodjoe. No doubt he’s a handsome man in anything he wears but Cynthia obviously needed to specify he should wear a suit, especially when all of the ladies on stage were wearing gowns. Minus 15. Who shows upMore >
In a surprising and unsettling statement, Burger King admits to horse meat possibly tainting burgers sold in both the U.K. and Ireland recently.
It’s just the latest chapter in an ongoing scandal in the two nations involving beef burger patties allegedly containing meat from horses and pigs.
It’s suspected that a meat distributor in Poland, which works with Burger King and other supermarket chains, used meats other than beef as filler in cheap burgers.
Burger King had originally stressed, in the face of the scandal, that its patties are made with 100 percent beef, a claim thatMore >
Subway customers are up in arms and busting out measuring tapes amid reports that the chain’s famous foot-long subs fall a half an inch or even a full inch short.
The controversy began on Tuesday in Perth, Australia, when a discerning customer named Matt Corby ordered one and pulled out a tape measure:
Corby found the sub measured only 11 inches long and took his outrage to Facebook, where he posted a photo of it with the caption “subway pls respond.”
The photo, predictably, sparked an abundance of similar photos on Facebook of subs being measured and countless comments onMore >
Eating Denny’s entire 11-piece “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” menu in a single sitting sounds certifiably insane … unless you’re Jamie “The Bear” McDonald did.
Okay, it still sounds insane, but he did it anyway.Denny’s Hobbit Menu Challenge
In 20 minutes, Jamie McDonald inhaled about 156 ounces (9.75 lbs) of food and drink and 8,610 calories, not including ketchup. Totally worth it, undoubtedly.
The Ring Burger alone is a stunning 1,420 calories … of course all Hobbit fans know the Ring has a way of corrupting those who seek it, so that makes sense.
