The bad dream gets worse for a Scottsdale eatery featured on Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, Amy’s Baking Company.

RadarOnline got ahold of records from Arizona’s Maricopa County Health Department and the conditions at Amy and Samy Bouzaglo’s place don’t sound so sanitary.

During various visits, investigators found employees not washing their hands as well as “tuna and meat sauce beyond discard dates,” “several food cases and containers ... on floor,” “pizza cutter stored in standing water at 105F.”

On the May 10 show, host Ramsay walked out for the first time in the history of KN. After the episode aired, the hotheaded couple launched an precedented online diatribe against their critics. They later claimed they were hacked and announced a “grand re-opening,” in response to “unflattering portrayals on national television.”

Radar also reports Amy Bouzaglo was convicted of a class D felony for using a fake social security number on a loan application for a line of credit for $15,000 in 2001. She was sentenced to 14 months in prison and ordered to pay around 36K in restitution.

All business

Jennifer Lopez has another title: chief creative officer of the NUVOtv network. The announcement was made last fall, but her role was solidified as the English-language Latino network prepared to relaunch with new programming July 18. JLo will be involved in marketing, branding and program development.

Marry me

It’s a match: Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi is engaged to model Águeda López. She showed off her ring on Despierta America and told viewers that the Latin Grammy winner proposed in Paris. The couple has a daughter Mikaela, who will be 2 in December. Fonsi’s ex wife is actress Adamari López.

Funny stuff

Poppy cock! Sean Combs will not be appearing on Downton Abbey. The sometime actor ( Monster’s Ball) Tweeted he was set to appear on his favorite show, but it was a hoax to promote a Funny or Die skit. Check out the video; in it Combs portrays Lord Wolcott, who has trouble pronouncing the PBS hit’s title.

Bitter battle

The Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher divorce just gets uglier and more expensive by the day. Moore wants to exact revenge monetarily — and has asked for spousal support, says TMZ. The star seems to think the Two and a Half Men star should share the wealth. He is, after all, the highest paid sitcom actor on TV, making $700,000 per episode. That’s $15.4 million a year.
