Khan Promises To Abandon Celebrity Lifestyle In Pursuit Of Mayweather Mega-fight

10 things celebrity chefs won’t tell you

I wont let defeat happen because I know that would leave me with few places to go. But I am confident I will be stronger at the bigger weight and that will enable my speed and movement to prevail. Khan reveals that he had been over-doing what he calls the water diet. Hard work, dedication: Khan has promised to ditch his celebrity lifestyle in pursuit of a fight with Mayweather That requires the drinking of 12 litres of water a day. The intention is to drain toxins from the system but Khan says: It was weakening me. I need to build up my size and strength, not water down. Ive been getting bigger and more muscular and feel much better. I used to be able to squeeze into trousers with a 30 inch waist. Now I need 32-inchers and some of my favourite skinny jeans have had to go. Khan is currently about 10 pounds over the welter limit of 147lbs, which puts him comfortably on track for December 7. In camp: Khan will base himself in San Francisco for three months alongside trainer Virgil Hunter (below) But this is a fight he cannot afford to lose. Not after those two shocking defeats by Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia. A couple of less than entirely convincing wins since have edged him back into title contention and he says: I want another belt. I really miss being a world champion. The Mayweather connection surprises Khans critics but has arisen from the pound-for-pound king demolishing most of his potential challengers… and courtesy of his Golden Boy promoters. Richard Schaefer, chief executive of that company, is intrigued by the notion of Wembley. After masterminding the record-viewing Mayweather-Alvarez spectacular, he says: It would be exciting to bring 100,000 people to an event in London. Next up: Khan is set to face IBF welterweight champion Devon Alexander in New York on December 7 But he concedes there are financial complications for pay-per-view TV in America.

Just add items to create a watchlist now: Add By Charles Passy 1. Our goose is cooked. In the past two decades, the pop culture prestige of chefs has risen dramatically, making them the rock stars of the modern era. Many have built vast empires that include hit TV shows, far-flung restaurants, kitchenware collections and more. The biggest of them are practically identifiable by their first names alone: think Emeril (Lagasse). And their take-home pay reflects their celebrity status, with several chefs earning more than $10 million a year, according to a 2012 Forbes survey. (The top earner? Gordon Ramsay of Foxs Hells Kitchen fame, with $38 million.) Click to Play Little formal kitchen training, mediocre pots and pans, and overexposure are plaguing celebrity chefs.

But there are signs that celebrity chefs may be waning in popularity. For starters, the Food Network, which marks its 20th anniversary this November, has lost some of its ratings luster: Viewership declined by 10% over the past season, according to the latest Nielsen figures. Moreover, in recent years, the network has struggled to find a new breakthrough star, media observers say.

Who’s actually writing your favorite celebrity’s tweets?

Sometimes the clients dont want to have anything to do with it, and sometimes they really want to be involved and be like heres the issue, heres what I want to say about it, and heres the tone Id like to take. Theres no business like tweet business Gotham Ghostwriters was founded as a full-service speechwriting firm, but it gradually got into the ghostposting business as social media became more and more prominent. Leckert believes the ghostposting business is still gaining steam. I think that social media itself is a little bit new; so is the idea that you can pay someone to do it for you, let alone pay someone who wont say they are doing it for you, she says. Ghostwriting [for social media] is definitely gaining ground; The stigma around the whole thing is being lifted. In Annas case, she was contacted and hired the old fashioned way through her literary agent. As this is a relatively new field, a bit of negotiating had to take place to come to acceptable terms. It was the first time that my agent had to negotiate a per-tweet rate, but it definitely was not the last. Loose lips While Takei seemed to take his social media outing in stride, ghostwriters in any medium are not supposed to reveal their own existence. The job of a ghostwriter is to fool everyone into thinking they dont exist, says Leckert. Thats why theyre ghosts. Some celebrities and professionals freely acknowledge that theyve had assistance in the social media realm. Some corporate clients have been like Im a busy person, I cant be bothered to tweet, so Im smart enough to hire a tweeting expert, Leckert explains. Other times, whether its hubris or professional concern, there might be a more ironclad arrangement regarding disclosing their ghostwriting. There were [contractual] clauses forbidding revealing the celebritys identity through miming. Anna found herself in one of those ironclad agreements.
