The cast and crew of Top Chef were not greeted with a tea party upon arriving in Boston to film the show's upcoming 12th season, which debutsWednesday, Oct. 15 on Bravo.
According to a new report from Deadline, host Padma Lakshmi and other Top Chef crew members were verbally attacked by picketing Teamsters in June after the series hired local production assistants to drive cast and crew vehicles.

Use your four-letter words wisely! On Monday, NBC airs back-to-back episodes of Hollywood Game Night starting at 8/7c.
After her breakthrough performances in Bridesmaids and Pitch Perfect, no one would question why Rebel Wilson has become a sought-after star, or why ABC would want to build a show around her ample and fearlessly outrageous talents. But Super Fun Night hasn't been much of a joyride so far.
The original pilot, which has been replaced by another episode for its official premiere (9:31/8:31c), elicited this reaction from me in the Fall Preview issue: "The grotesque extremes to which Wilson stoops to get laughs in this frenetic vehicle have a whiff of desperation. It might also be more fun if she used her authentic Aussie accent." The objection stands about her Americanized speech (her choice), and while the new opener is a little less degrading — instead of exposing her body on a city street with flashing lights on her underwear, a new gag involves an office elevator door shredding her dress, revealing her Spanx at work — it's not much funnier.

Brooke Williamson was riding a three-elimination challenge win streak heading into the Top Chef finale, but the Los Angeles-based chef came up short to Kristen — or more specifically, two rounds short after Kristen took the title 3-1 in a best-of-five contest. "I didn't love the format of how they judged in rounds," she tells TVGuide.com. "I felt like it should've been a collective judging based on an entire meal. It would've been nice to actually put my dessert out." What was her planned dessert? Does she regret making those fried chicken wings? And does she have any more phobias? Find out below.

17. Craziest Crowd: This little British boy band called One Direction — perhaps you've heard of them? — appear on the Today show Tuesday in front of a record-breaking crowd to perform their hit "Live While We're Young" to throngs upon throngs of teenagers (and their very loving parents). Ironically, nobody can hear the performance they camped outside for four whole days to see over the cacophony of screams coming from the audience.
