For five seasons Bravo has brought us a great show, one that I truly enjoy.
No, not The Real Housewives of Orange County (although I admit I've been sucked into more than an episode or two).
The show I'm talking about is filled with drama, egos, uncomfortable situations, hot chicks, arguments, fights and tears. No, really, it's not about trashy housewives. It's Top Chef, hosted by Padma Lakshmi, ex-wife of controversial novelist Salman Rushdie. Padma is joined by five-time James Beard Award winning chef Tom Colicchio, food critic Gail Simmons and her glorious rack. Since the show is getting ready to air its sixth season, I'll take a moment to catch you guys up.
