I'm glad they fired him. He is rude to people and acts like a jerk! His last couple shows really degraded people. So I am happy he's gone. Besides, Character is what it takes to be a leader. He should lose respect of everyone. I believe in forgiveness which he should be forgiven but he put his character on the line. So bye bye Bobby Urrr... Vine!

Robert fired over embellishing his resume? Funny how Food Network's DRAMA etched format for all of their male chefs suddenly can't understand why someone might use the same hype to get hired. If Robert had just been awesome - capable and up to the job, without the white house and royal family in his resume - he'd likely been passed over for a more dramatic 'anybody'. I say keep Robert... Whomever went gunning for him had some other more personal agenda Robert is as alpha male as you can get, and probably caused some underendowed Food Netework exec insecurity issues. Robert, we still luv ya man... maybe even more, now that we see you as less superman and capable of human frailty. Magic Mare

Who gives a flip if he was responsible for the Brits cake for heavens sake. His show is good and he is entertaining and tough to encourage people to do their best and to learn excellent skills. Geez, give us a break, bring him back. We don't give a rats booty about the princess's cake.
