Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, Flipping Out and Million Dollar Listing New York were among the many shows given an Emmy nod today.  The Emmy winners will be announced on August 25th. Check out who made the cut!

RHOM Season 3 Cast

Reality television is ruled by Bravo and the network that boasts the most crazy, chaotic 'rich' people behaving badly has just announced a bevy of new and returning shows!

First up, the returning! Super successful rookie shows Below Deck and Newlyweds: The First Year will all have a second season – both with new casts! Thicker Than Water and the surprise hit Blood, Sweat, and Heels will also have sophomore seasons. Also renewed was Kim Zolciak's spinoff Don't Be Tardy and Lisa Vanderpump's spinoff Vanderpump Rules. Interestingly I did not see I Dream of NeNe anywhere on that list! However, I'm positive that will be back

Well set your set your speculation aside, because Real Housewives of New York is definitely coming back! 

Despite not being invited to the Bravo upfronts, the show has officially been confirmed for season 6 on Bravo's website. No cast announcement has been made, but the show is expected to begin filming this month. 

Also definitely getting a return is Real Housewives of Miami, but we already knew that since rumors of the cast have been bandying about and Karent Sierra announced she was not coming back. RHOM just started filming for season three.

Last week on Top Chef, Micah Fields won the sexy knife quickfire challenge and Kristen Kish won the memorable moments elimination challenge. In a cook-off with Lizzie BinderJohn Tesar (and his eye glasses) fell victim to the curse of the risotto and was eliminated. Ouch! Being eliminated over Lizzie, who knowingly cooked and served questionable scallops, had to be embarrassing. 

While Josh Valentine (and his twisty mustache) is glad John is gone, Stefan Richter (and his wrinkle-free face) misses his "morning friend." Josie Malave declares she didn't come back as a stupid chef. True. She came back as an annoying chef.

Padma Lakshmi and Wolfgang Puck introduce the quickfire challenge.
 
Quickfire Challenge
 
The challenge: create a dish highlighting ginger… sponsored by Canada Dry Ginger Ale… in only fifteen minutes. Ginger Ale. It's what pays the bills. 
 
15 minutes? Wolfgang Puck? The pressure is on! Lizzie makes a split-second decision and grabs watermelon. Brooke loves ginger and pairs it with squid. Stefan disses Sheldon's stir fry dish, calling it too pedestrian and Chinese restaurant, and Sheldon yells "mother f-ker" at his meat.

Last week on Top Chef Seattle, the cheftestants harvested fresh oysters and cooked for the Rat City Roller Girls. While everyone wished they could have voted Josie Malave off the Top Chef island, Bart Vandaele was eliminated for serving beyond bland food. I told those suckers that they'd regret not letting Josie sink in the mud, but they didn't listen to me.

This week's episode opens with Sheldon Simeon sharpening his knives and Stefan Richter slathering on wrinkle cream. Funny. Padma Lakshmi introduces this week's special guest, master blade smith Bob Kramer, who makes custom knives that sell for $500 an inch. That's crazy!
 
Bob cuts through two ropes to demonstrate just how awesome a $4,000 knife is. Sheldon begs to give him a hug; Lizzie Binder appears as if she hasn't slept in weeks; Stefan doesn't look too impressed. Perhaps Stefan would have cracked a smile or raised an eyebrow if Bob had busted out $4,000 wrinkle cream.

Last week on Top Chef Seattle, we endured Tuna Gate and Rockin' Josie. While Kristen Kish scored a double win, Danyele McPherson was eliminated for constantly falling short. 

This week, instead of personally introducing the quickfire challenge, Padma Lakshmi and Emeril Lagasse leave a note. The note directs the chefs to take three Toyotas (ohh! ahh!) to Taylor Shellfish Farm. 

When Josie Malave gets stuck in quicksand, Micah Fields and Stefan Richter come to her rescue. I don't know why. She's super annoying, nobody can stand her, and proving to be impossible to eliminate. Overall, the chefs are excited to harvest fresh oysters. They take their time, enjoying every second of the experience and slurping up fresh oysters as they go. 

Quickfire Challenge

The challenge: the chefs must prepare an oyster dish for Emeril. In the kitchen, there are five red aprons and five blue aprons. Red aprons will prepare hot dishes and the blue aprons will prepare cold dishes. The winner gets $5000.

Last week on Top Chef Seattle, the chefs prepared dishes for Anna Faris and Chris Pratt's homecoming party. While Brooke Williamson scored a double win, Eliza Gavin was eliminated. 

Padma Lakshmi introduces this week's guest judge to the eleven remaining contestants, season four winner Stephanie Izard. Stephanie is the only woman to ever win Top Chef

Quickfire Challenge
 
The challenge: The chefs may cook whatever they like but every ingredient in the kitchen is wrapped in Reynolds Wrap (shameless product placement). The chefs blindly choose their ingredients. If they unwrap it, they must use it. Also, foil is the only cooking vessel that they are allowed to use.
 
Danyele McPherson - cannellini bean stew with bacon asiago cheese, and tomatillo. While Danyele was thrown off by the tomatillo, Stephanie thinks it improved the dish. Micah Fields - grilled lamb with tomato fennel panzanella. The lamb is rare. Stefan – hot smoked salmon with german potato salad served with champagne. John Tesar - beed egg drop soup with braised pineapple. Stephanie likes the pineapple and the beef combination.
 
Brooke - bacon roasted yams with bacon, onion, and apple salad. The raw onion nearly kills Padma. Josh Valentine - roasted chicken with potatoes, poblano, tomatillo, and carrots. Stephanie appreciates the small hint of heat.  Kristen Kish - almond and chocolate sponge cake. Not only did Kristen mix the ingredients in a foil bowl but she also baked the cake in a foil pan. The texture of the cake is great. Kristen continues to impress me.
