Last week on Top Chef,John Tesar and Josh Valentine created so much drama, Kristen Kish won $10,000 for her extra special mushrooms, Tyler Wiard brought the Eeyore impressions, and Chrissy Camba and Carla Pellegrino were eliminated for soggy salad and undercooked squab, respectively.
Immediately following last week's elimination, the fourteen remaining cheftestants soak in the "Carla's gone" silence, Josh whines because he sucks, and Stefan Richter worries about the season five birthday curse.
Tyler laments, "Being on top today doesn't mean shit. I better continue to do the best I can, because, tomorrow, I could be gone." So goes the Top Chef Seattle kiss of death… Jeffrey Jew excelled in week one and was eliminated in week two. Kuniko Yagi won the elimination challenge in week two and was eliminated in week three. Carla Pellegrino won the elimination challenge in week three and was eliminated in week four. Last week, Lizzie Binder, Kristen, Tyler, and Stefan served the best dishes. As I mentioned above, Kristen rocked the mushrooms and took the prize for the week.
So, what does all of this mean? I have no idea. :) Will Kristen break the curse? Does Tyler have a reason to be worried? Will Stefan lose because it's his birthday? Will John and Josh keep away from each other this week? Let's find out!
I think that Rihanna needs to stick to what she does best…singing and commiserating with douchebags. She doesn't need to be producing and starring in her own reality show. To be honest, I'm so skeeved that she went back to Chris Brown and even encourages his entitled and hateful behavior that I don't really even want to listen to her music, much less watch her on a television show.
Of course, no one asked my opinion, so it appears that RiRi will be heading to the Style Network in 2013 for a show called Styled to Rock where she hand-picks twelve up and coming fashion designers to dress celebrity guests. Does any of this sound familiar?
What started with a series of passive aggressive tweets and a scathing article in which Brandi accused LeAnn of having a severe eating disorder and being an unfit parent has resulted in an all-out war. Brandi also claimed Eddie refuses to speak to her and is impossible to get in touch with, which is why she has resorted to twitter and the media.
Eddie recently took to RadarOnline to leak an email he sent to Brandi proving he does actually communicate with her – albeit unpeaceably.
In his email Eddie writes:
"I know your life exists solely for the purpose of living and creating drama. It's a sad way to live. It's so obvious that you have to constantly mention my wife so people will care what comes out of your mouth"
Not even Stevie J and Joseline could scare this franchise out of existence…unfortunately. VH1's Love & Hip Hop is set to return in January, and hopefully the original show will get back to the original premise and leave Atlanta's scripted ridiculousness behind. I have my fingers crossed, but I'm not holding my breath!
It will be the third season for the network hit, and undoubtedly drama-filled. Rumor has it that first season cast members Olivia Longott and Rich Dollaz will return along with second season additions Erica Mena and new momYandy Smith. It looks like the show has totally cleaned house, although given the success of Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones' spin-off, I'm not shocked they are absent from the roster.
They never go away, do they? Just because a lady has decided (or Bravo for her) that a housewives franchise isn't the way to go, the women who leave their shows always find a way to scurry back into the limelight…no matter how faded said light may seem.
Do you remember original Real Housewives of Atlanta'sLisa Wu Hartwell (now, just plain ol' Lisa Wu after a recent divorce)? She laughed in the face of She By She Broke with her affordable Closet Freak line? Yeah, she's back…and she's touting a lip gloss line and mediocre movie roles along the way. I always liked Lisa, but I understand why she bid farewell to her franchise. She was just far, far too normal.
