So, let’s get to why I’m so tired. Well, I didn’t get to watch Top Chef until the The wee hours of the night because I was out late. Where was I you ask? What, you don’t ask? How dare you! I’m telling you anyway. I was at the Bravo A-list Awards!!
While we were on line we didn’t have a view of the covered red carpet and could only hear the cheers but I did see Simon from the Real Housewives of NYC. Ugh! But it was still fun to see him and sneer.
Finally we hobbled in on aching feet. The show was just starting Kathy was onstage singing and being Kathy in all her glory. We got seats upstairs and once we were settled we were happy.
Kathy did not disappoint. She was hilarious! Dissing all who dared cross her and cracking as up in the process. Telling us secrets to her Mona’s Basement dress and talking about her peekaboo bra. Be sure to tune in for her duet with Lance Bass. Too funny!
Who did we see? I can’t tell the full list, but all the faves were all there such as:
Tim Ginn, Christain, Tom C., Padma All the Top Chef Faves (although I didn’t see Tre), Margret Cho, Lauren Hutton, Molly Simms, Obama Girl, all the Housewives of NYC and California and the Supermodels. It was a fun time.
Bonus: For the Sex and the City ladies, remeber Dante from the movie? He was there!
Then it was back home and I could not go to sleep so I open my email and see that something not to good has happened on TOP CHEF. I had to watch. Here goes a quickie recap….
The show opens at the the airport and the are 3 faves and 1 villain with freshly washed and cut hair and I think plucked brows, but I’m not sure. The faves are all shocked by this.
We see that Padma is the only person that looks camera ready after the break. She knows where her bread is buttered everyone else has been living in the kitchen.
Quickfire challenge. Faves run to the table and villain runs to the pantry. Okay villain. Cagey.
Bottom two are: Antonia and Richard
Top two are:Stephanie and Villain, I mean, Lisa
The Winner is Stephanie!! Yay.
There is a party, but Richard is not ready to party he is all about winning. I hear that. The game is always on Richard.
Now the Elimination Challenge. Dang! That is a lot of pig.
It’s all pig all the time. A whole pig for each of them to cut up and make 3 dishes with.
And they get help from, Dale, Nikki, Spike and Andrew. All BFF’s of Lisa’s.
The trick is Stephanie as the winner of the quickfire gets to choose who gets who.
She takes Dale. Richard gets Spike. Antonia gets Nikki and Lisa gets… Andrew. That’s right the same Andrew that she ratted out. What does sweet Andrew say? That he’ll do what he can to help her win. But watch out, his eyes say she’d better not drink from an already opened bottle given by him if you know what I mean.
The sioux chefs go shopping as the chefs hang back to butcher the pigs ugh. Then it was manic prep time and Lisa’s true colors start to show.
In the craziness of the tight kitchen horror struck and Dale forgot to put one of Stephanie pans of pork in the fridge overnight. It’s ruined. Now I’m really worried. What if Stephanie has to go home. Mel-O-Drama why are you making me watch this!!!
Now Stephanie has to come up with another dish on the fly.
Dale and Stephanie pull together and come up with something. I won’t recap the dishes here. Let’s just say they all make a lot of pork. A LOT OF PORK!!!
Turns out even with coming up with an on the fly dish Stephanie is in the top 2 along with Richard. Yay!
The Winner is Richard. Good for him. He won a new car. His wife will be so happy. It will come in handy with the new baby girl!
Now for the bottom 2. Antonia and Lisa. The Not so Glad Room has been moved to sunny Puerto Rico to be just as sad. Lisa assumes she’s going home and Antonia is crying because she doesn’t want to go home. I’ve already got a bad feeling.
Just put me out of my misery. Judges please. Out this week is… Antonia.
Lisa rides another week. I’m numb to it all. But it doesn’t stop there. Richard and Stephanie are horrified to see their friend and who they feel is the better person go and Lisa gives them crap for not congratulating her! The nerve. How much did I love Stephanie’s dead pan expression? “well, congratulations,” she said with no emotion. Perfect.
Till next week and the finale. Who knows she may win it all. I won’t be surprised.
