Top Chef Texas, Week 6: Who Shot JR?
Previously: the horror of the Highland Park dinner, but also Heather hating on Bev (Chekhov's side eye?), and the male cheftestants (mostly Ed) bitching about how Chuy's elimination reduced the number of men in the competition. (Side note: I know this is TOTALLY UNREASONABLE of me, but I was really disappointed to see Paul Qui smoking in this scene.)

Top Chef Texas, Week 5: Trophy Wives Make Easy Targets

Random exclamation of, "Nobody take my breast milk!" Chuy is the Most Interesting Man In the World. Weeping.)

Top Chef Texas, Week 3: The Bus Arrives
I was already a generous tumbler of very good cabernet sauvignon when my friends arrived last night bearing coquito, tiny treats from Cutie Pies, and more wine for a Top Chef-watching party at my house. Another generous tumbler and I was en fuego with the snark, baby!

Top Chef Texas, Week 2: Shoot-Out at the Dimly Lit Corral
So, I defended my dissertation on Wednesday and then drank a bunch of cocktails, so my recollection of this week's episode might be a bit hazy. Thank goodness for the magic of DVR.
