Bravo will kick off Season 5 of its cooking competition show Top Chef Masters on July 24, the network announced Wednesday.
The season will feature 13 chefs (see the full list below) competing against each other for $100,000 for charity. In a new twist, the season will also feature the competitors' sous chefs battling against each other in an online competition. Based on their protégé's performance, each Master will be awarded advantages or disadvantages in their own competition.
Cougar Town's Busy Phillips will be busy for a while on mom duty.
Phillips revealed the sex of her second child on Sunday while promoting her new film, A Case of You. The baby is a girl whose name has not been announced. She will join her older sister, Birdie, 4.
"I haven't said what I'm having yet, I just realized," Phillips, 33, told the Huffington Post. "We've known for a long time now, I just haven't had any reason to say it, but we're having another girl. ... "We're really excited."
The babies' father is Phillips' screenwriter husband Marc Silverstein.read more
