Top Chef Chicago: Mark Out, Antonia Back in the Game

Top Chef, MarkTime now to check in on what’s cooking in the kitchen. The last two weeks have seen pretty boy/chef Ryan and the remaining half of the lesbian couple/competitors, Jen, go home. (Girlfriend Zoi went home in episode 5.)

This week New Zealand native and resident mop head Mark got the axe but not before questioning whether head judge Tom Colicchio, likes him personally. Sadly Mark, I think it might just be your food. This week’s challenge involved cooking for kids and he made vegetable curry, you do the math.

This week also saw single-mom Antonia get back in the game in a big way (last week she nearly went home thanks to a badly improvised dish involving polish sausage). That was then, this is now. Last night, Antonia won both the Quickfire and Elimination challenges.

The Closer

 

MONDAY (12/3)
  • (TNT, 8pm):  The special two-hour holiday episode brings Brenda’s parents into the investigative fold.  Nothing says Christmas like talking blood with your blood.
  • (NBC, 9pm):  (NOTE:  This is the last new episode left.)  ‘Peter squares off against former friends thanks to Adam’s confusing story about the Shanti virus.’  He shouldn’t fault Adam; the confusing storyline is to blame.
  • (FOX, 9pm):  ‘Boulet and Cobb investigate an insurance adjuster’s murder.’  As if there weren’t enough people in New Orleans with a motive.
  • (NBC, 10pm): (First half of the two-parter; 2nd half airs Wednesday).  ‘Evidence points to Reese’s father in the murders that sent Crews to prison.’  I’m guessing this won’t be resolved anytime soon…otherwise, we wouldn’t have a show.

Letterman to Appear on Oprah

Posted by Wendy Michaels Categories: Daytime, Late Night, Talk Shows,

David Letterman Aww, it’s cute that David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey have reconciled. I mean, that whole “Oprah—Uma” thing that Letterman did oh so many Oscars ago is certainly water under the bridge by now? Winfrey finally made her peace and appeared on Late Show in 2005. Sure, she wanted to plug her musical The Color Purple, but it was a stellar reunion nonetheless. Now it’s Dave’s turn to repay the favor—he’ll appear on an upcoming installment of Oprah’s talk show, which will tape the week of September 10th. This is big for a couple of reasons—first, Letterman rarely appears on anyone’s show; second, it’s Oprah. You can’t get much bigger than that. I’ve been a fan of Letterman since I was a kid who could barely keep my eyes open for his show. Come to think of it, I can barely keep my eyes open as an adult for late night television anymore. Have I come full circle? Oprah will be taping in New York City at Madison Square Garden, with her focus on the sixth anniversary of 9/11. Rest assured, her chat with Letterman is not expected to be a serious interview… so you can expect plenty of goofiness from Dave (and maybe a bit from Oprah too). This kicks off Oprah’s 22nd season of the show. Oprah and Dave last appeared on a Super Bowl commercial together.

Madonna to Set Things Straight on Oprah

Madonna If you’re having trouble keeping up with all of the latest happenings of Madonna’s recent adoption of 13-month-old David Banda, look no further than Oprah to clear things up. Things were going swimmingly with her and hubby Guy Ritchie’s recent adoption process. In fact, many child rights groups were saying that things were going too easily for the couple—and too quickly. Madonna was able to gain custody of the child easily and even have him come to live with them in England. Typically, Malawian laws do not allow international adoptions or require the parents to live in the country for up to one year for evaluation. Then, the boys’ father spoke out, saying that he didn’t really understand the permanency of an adoption. He told the Associated Press on Sunday, “If we were told she wants to take the baby as her own, we would not have consented, because I see no reason why I should give up my son.”

So, where does the adoption stand and what is all of the controversy about? Madonna will be shedding light on the details during an upcoming interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show. The show will air on Wednesday.
