This week's Top Chef picked right up with more talk of the mysterious pea puree debacle. But the cheftestants were forced to let it go and move on with a new challenge: preparing international cuisines for a slew of Washington dignitaries, ambassadors and diplomats. Unfortunately, for this season's class clown ...
Tareq Salahi and Michaele Salahi
Michaele Salahi says she doesn't like talking about that time she and her husband Tareq attended — some would say "crashed" — a party at the White House. "It's been media torture," she says. The new star of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. would rather tell the world about her latest claim to fame: a manhandling, she claims, by Whoopi Goldberg.
Brad Goreski, The Rachel Zoe Project
During the Season 3 premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project, Taylor Jacobson was fired by — or left, depending on who you believe — Rachel Zoe. In her wake, adorable, formerly bowtie-clad assistant Brad Goreski was promoted to style director and immediately handed a major Harper's Bazaar cover shoot with Demi Moore, a giraffe and some armadillo shoes. As you can see, he handled it masterfully.
Goreski talked to TVGuide.com about life without Jacobson, and what — or who — the new source of drama is this season.
Top Chef, Andrea
During this week's Top Chef power-lunch elimination challenge, a container of pea puree took center stage as the cheftestants and viewers were left to wonder if Alex actually stole the side dish from Ed and passed it as his own. TVGuide.com spoke with eliminee Andrea Curto-Randazzo to get her take on the matter and why she found it "very weird" that the three people closest to the pea drama wound up in the top three. Plus: Find out which critique she says was a "bunch of bologna."
Fans of Bravo's The Rachel Zoe Project know that between seasons, Zoe and her slave-driving assistant Taylor Jacobson have parted ways. And the end — which you won't see on the upcoming third season — wasn't pretty.
According to WWD, Zoe and her husband and business partner, Rodger Berman, accused Jacobson of ...
Bethenny Getting Married
Last week, viewers watched Bethenny Frankel walk down the aisle and become a bona fide housewife. But now that she and Jason Hoppy have tied the knot, what's the long-term future of Bethenny Getting Married? Frankel, for one, isn't worried.
"The best parts on my show are when Jason and I are sitting in the kitchen talking about nonsense, or...
Note: Violence is never the answer. However, what went down last night on The Real Housewives of New Jersey wasn't so much violence as it was the highest level of low-class art we've ever been blessed with. The screaming. The shoving. The insults. The fake hair. It was all so...Real Housewives. On 'roids...
Lindsay Lohan lashed out at Bravo after the channel's new reality show Double Exposure depicted the actress as late and apparently unreliable.
In the series' second episode, which aired Tuesday, photographers Markus Klinko and Indrani and the rest of the crew were seen waiting more than eight hours for Lohan, 23. The photographers were shooting promotional photos tied to the Mean Girls actress' line of leggings. Double Exposure documents Klinko and Indrani's careers behind the cameras as high-fashion photographers, as well as their personal lives.

Colicchio also sizes up this season's cheftestants for TVGuide.com and tells us his favorite Top Chef dishes of all time. Plus: How would he handle the dreaded dessert course if he were in competition?
