‘Hell’s Kitchen’: Nedra Cusses Out The Guys

Nedra continues to be very entertaining on “Hell’s Kitchen.” She’s a blast to watch even when she’s being intimidating, as she was on this week’s installment. It all went down after the guys were making fun of the girls. Nedra was not having that, and so she declared that it was time to go “hammer time” on the boys.

For the record, going “hammer time” appears to mean screaming almost more expletives at them than the Fox censors can handle. And they thought Gordon Ramsay used foul language!

“Don’t f*cking say sh*t to us,” Nedra told the guys. “Say something when you can win a challenge. ‘Cause I’ll f*cking tell y’all some sh*t. Quick, fast and a f*cking nerve. You don’t want to f*ck with me. I’m Mike Tyson, bitch! Ring the bell if you want to play. Ring it. Ring it, bitches. Ring it!”

Nobody rang it, and SheKnows thought it was pretty funny watching some of the guys sweat. Buddy TV was laughing, too, but that’s because they found Nedra more funny than threatening.

Nobody was laughing when Ramsay threw everyone out of the kitchen. And then he did it again. Last week, Ramsay left viewers in the dark as to who was getting eliminated — he cut Jeremy at the top of the hour this week. This time, the teams selected Dan, Mary, Nedra and Ray. Ramsay was so disgusted he had all four of them take off their jackets. And that’s how it ended.

Tune in next week to “Hell’s Kitchen” to find out who’s gone. “HK” airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
