I Want To Go To There: The “Top Chef” Cruise

I've never really had any desire to go on a cruise until I heard there would be one with HOT CHEFS ON BOARD. Bravo's "Top Chef" has announced a five-day voyage, which will set sail in April of 2013. Best part: Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons will be hosting along with some other favorite "To…

Nerd Girl Porn: Hot Chefs

"Top Chef" Texas contestant Ty-Lör Boring (is that his real name?) is anything but boring, especially when sprawled out buck naked on a kitchen table.  I've  had a peek at his sausage and let me tell you, I am suddenly craving Italian food. Is he Italian? He must be with all that hair. Anyhow, thi…

Girl Talk: Sex With A “Top Chef”

At the end of last year, I was in Los Angeles for a TV appearance that required me to be dressed up and in full makeup. That ended in the early afternoon, and I walked around downtown all glammed up, excited to have the rest of the day free. A guy complimented me, and I…

Drool-Worthy: Hot Dudes Surfing And Eating Fish Tacos

The latest video from hot foodie blog Immaculate Infatuation -- run by the infinitely edible Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang -- combines three of my favorite things: hot dudes (in the form of "Top Chef" alum Sam Talbot), surfing (instructed by famed pro surfer Donavon Frankenreiter), and fish tacos (served up at Talbot's Long Island…

And The Prize Goes To … The Top Chef

Last week, we asked you to tell us why you're the top chef of your kitchen, in the hopes of winning a copy of How to Cook Like a Top Chef. I became so hungry from reading all your comments. The Frisky really does have some seasoned chefs and some budding ones too. Find out…

Quotable: Padmi Lakshmi Has Eaten A Lot Of Testicles

“We eat all kinds of funky things on the show, and [my baby] ate everything that I ate, through my breast milk. My baby was having a little bit of yak, a little bit of curry goat, a little bit of duck balls. I’ve eaten a lot of testicles in my days … I’ve had…

Reality TV Star Couples Living Happily Ever After

Awww. It looks like two Bravo reality TV show stars have gotten together—and they didn't even need the help of "The Millionaire Matchmaker." Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” and recently divorced Sam Talbot of “Top Chef” sure look like they are dating. Although this couple is denying rumors of a…

Would You Put A Portrait Of Yourself Over Your Bed?

Our pal Gala Darling points to this photo of Padma Lakshmi in her bed, a bed that has a painting of herself over it. Ego gone wild or appropriate artwork? You be the judge.

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of December 7th 2009

The holiday season is never the best in terms of television and, really, what other terms would we be talking about here? There are far too many reruns and new episodes tend to be Christmas-themed, which is just annoying. Not to mention the commercials that suggest you buy your loved ones cars as gifts? Really,…

Why Was “Top Chef” So Pervy Last Night?

Last night's episode of "Top Chef" featured extra-special guest judge Natalie Portman, who forced the chefs to cook vegetarian food in a steakhouse (so cruel!). But they must have done something right, because when the judges sat down to eat, Natalie and Padma got a little frisky. Clip above!

Stefan From “Top Chef” Needs A Date

If you watched last season's "Top Chef," you either loved or hated Stefan Richter, the snotty German who rubbed a lot of the other chefs the wrong way. Personally, I loved his arrogance and the fact that his food looks delish. He came close to winning in the finals (and probably should have), but hi…

“Top Chef: Las Vegas” Stars Show Off Their Ink

Over at Needles and Sins, Marisa points us to Bravo's 57-page slide show of the seriously tattooed contestants of "Top Chef: Las Vegas." Our favorite? Pictured here, Michael Voltaggio's beautifully rendered forearm koi fish. (That he's cute doesn't hurt, although the work must have.) Check out the 30-year-old, Maryland-born, James Beard finalist's culinary-themed tattoos after…

How People Who Eat For A Living Stay Fit

My mom always used to joke in the kitchen, "Never trust a skinny chef," even though she's a skinny chef herself. Her words always ring through my mind when I see thinso chefs on the Food Network, or super-slim food critics like Padma Lakshmi of "Top Chef." She is perhaps the most baffling—I see her…

“Top Chef” Host Padma Lakshmi To Star In Sitcom

Padma Lakshmi, the hot foodie we've come to love on “Top Chef,” is making the leap into a sitcom. Peacock and Universal Media Studios are creating a half-hour show, tentatively titled “Single Serving,” specifically for Lakshmi. It'll follow her in the culinary world, and sounds a little bit like Courtney Cox’s character on Friends, maybe?

Show Your Amore For Top Chef’s Fabio

Aside from Carla, the crazy Muppet-like chef, our favorite contestant on "Top Chef" this season was Fabio, hands down -- and the fans agreed! On the reunion show, which aired on Wednesday, Fabio won "Fan Favorite" -- and now you can take Fabio home with you. Show your amore for the sexy and charming Italia…

Top Chef Is Back!

"Top Chef" is back on Bravo, y'all! I'm so excited. I think it's one of the best reality TV competition shows and unlike, say, "Hell's Kitchen," these chefs are actually insanely talented. Well, from what I can see. It's not like Taste-O-Vision has been made yet (get on that, scientists). After the jump, I break…

Star Couplings: Heather Matarazzo Asks Her Girlfriend To Join Her Special People’s Club

Heather "Weiner Dog" Matarazzo (Welcome to the Dollhouse) is engaged to her girlfriend of a year, Carolyn Murphy (not the supermodel). Apparently because Heather and Carolyn don't have "male" and "female" roles in their relationship, they proposed to each other. AWW! I think straight couples should take up this practice as well. Anyway, this i…
