1CORRECTED : Australian deputy PM at boiling point over Ramsay rant .
2Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay was told he should stick to cooking by Australia 's deputy prime minister Tuesday over a rant in which he suggested a female TV presenter was a lesbian .
3The British cook attacked Nine Network 's `` A Current Affair '' presenter Tracy Grimshaw at a Melbourne cooking expo on Saturday , the day after she interviewed him .
4In front of thousands of onlookers , Ramsay suggested Grimshaw was a lesbian and needed `` to see Simon Cowell 's botox doctor . ''
5He also showed a picture of a woman apparently naked on all fours with the face of a pig and said `` that 's Tracy Grimshaw . ''
6His publicist has since said the comments were a joke and not intended to cause offence .
7But Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard was unimpressed , saying Ramsay had displayed bad manners and poor taste .
8`` I understand from the publicity that Gordon Ramsay is a good chef , '' Gillard said .
9`` I think perhaps what he should do is confine himself to the kitchen and make nice things for people to eat rather than make public comments about others . ''
10Grimshaw also hit back at the `` Hell 's Kitchen '' supremo , labelling him an `` arrogant narcissist '' on her current affairs show on Monday night .
11She said there was nothing funny about Ramsay 's insults , which had upset her friends and family , including her mother .
12`` Truly , I wonder how many people would laugh if they were effectively described as an old , ugly pig , '' she said , adding that she had agreed not to probe Ramsay over an extra-marital affair when he appeared on the show .
13Grimshaw said she initially considered not responding to Ramsay 's comments but decided she had to stand up for herself .
14`` We all know that bullies thrive when no one takes them on and I 'm not going to sit meekly and let some arrogant narcissist bully me , '' she said .
15`` Obviously Gordon thinks that any woman who does n't find him attractive must be gay , '' she added .
