Relive The Boredom All Over Again
Chow's Meredith and I were dishing smack about how annoying Andy Cohen is and she compared him to Ryan Seacrest, but the thing is, Cohen's SO annoying, Seacrest would be a pleasure by comparison. I mean, I saw Knocked Up and Seacrest was funny enough that I actually have some respect for him now. Not so much for the guy who talks about how the beauty of the beach in the Hamptons makes him want to pee in the sea.
Calling it "the most controversial decision of the season," Cohen -- and a lot of his writer-inners, apparently -- want to talk about Tre being sent home after "Restaurant Wars." Did Tre think it was justified? Yes, he did. He was the executive chef and he thinks it was right to send him home. Colicchio weighs in that the judges all know that Tre's a great guy, and Colicchio himself respects the restaurant Tre works in, but the deal is, that night, Tre didn't step up. Tre admits, "I had a bad day," and adds it was a humbling experience. Colicchio chimes back in that most people don't know how hard it is to be on the show, and that the chefs who are watching from home going, "Oh, I could do that!" really can't.
