Good news for Top Chef fans- that annoying Katie Lee Joel is gone, along with her baby-doll lace belly shirts. She's being replaced as host by Padma Lakshmi, who is actually a cook, as well as being Salman Rushdie's wife. Apparently she's also a supermodel... I'm sure that had nothing to do with it.
The new season starts tonight at 11 on Bravo, right after the finale of Project Runway.
We'll have to watch. Suddenly I feel all, uh, "culinary"...
PS- I'm starting work on a new State of Denial series for the elections today.
