The Ciprianis aren’t the only ones whose faulty finances are being aired today. Bloomberg reports that Gordon Ramsay International Ltd. (the company that operates the non-U.K. eateries he’s now ducked out of) almost doubled its losses in 2009, from 4.32 million pounds in 2008 to 8.32 million pounds ($12.9 million) in the year ending August 31, 2009. The good news is that the U.K. restaurants are finally turning a profit of 515,373 pounds, which might be why Gordo is on a $10,000 Ducati these days. And his TV empire is feeling no pain: The contestants for the eighth season of Hell’s Kitchen were announced earlier this week.
