t.A.T.u. Might Make A Comeback And You're Excited [Candy Dish]

You guys remember t.A.T.u. right? You know, the Russian pop duo that sang "All The Things She Said" in the nineties?

Thanksgiving Makes For Some Great TV

If there’s one thing I love more than gorging myself on turkey (and stuffing, and cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie… mmm… wait, what was I talking about again?), it’s loafing on the living room couch before and after Thanksgiving dinner and taking in some fine Thanksgiving television.

Would You Rather…

Would you rather be the next Bachelorette OR be a judge on Top Chef? Things to Consider: 25 guys vying for your love, romantic dates in exotic locations, gourmet food, eating...for a living.

5 Not-So-Celebrity Lives I’m Lusting After

Since we’re well into the lazy days of July, I have no doubt that by now you’ve taken in your fair share of reruns and reality TV. Between puttering back and forth from a boring job at the mall and babysitting the kids down the street, you’re bound to slip into that coma only a comfy couch and summer television can bring.

Coupled. And Fighting Over the Remote

I don’t know about you guys, but when I get home after a long day of interning, working, and gymming, all I want to do is eat dinner and zone out to one of the thousands of Real Housewives or Say Yes to the Dress episodes I have DVR’ed. Unfortunately, my live-in boyfriend isn’t on the same page. Especially now that it’s baseball season.

Life After College: The Food Sucks

I'm a little cocky in the kitchen. But that's probably because I'm the best short order cook that I've ever met (and that's including the time I met Ratatouille). I can't even begin to tell you how many times I sat in my college kitchen and re-enacted stressful scenes from Top Chef. I played all the contestants and my broom played Padma (pre-pregnancy).

Guys and Their Moms: How Close is Too Close?

But last night while I was studying and making snowflake chains (I wish I was kidding…I’m desperate for some holiday cheer over here), I happened to flip on the season finale of Top Chef (no, I haven't watched one episode this season but I still couldn't look away) and witness a level of motherly love that I'm just not sure I'm comfortable with.

You Ready for the Top Chef Finale?!

It’s hard to put into words how much I love Bravo’s series Top Chef. To say I have formed an unhealthy obsession with it is an understatement. I can literally sit on my couch for seven hours straight without blinking an eye if I happen upon a Top Chef marathon.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Bring On The Reality (TV)!

Last week, as I fired up the DVR to catch up on all the shows I'd missed from the week, I had a rather enlightening moment. Sorta like an Oprah "aha!" moment, only way more embarrassing. My entire DVR was taken up by reality shows. Top Chef, Project Runway, The Real Housewives, Ace of Cakes... Hell, I even had a little Real World/Road Rules Duel on there.

The Emmys’ Red (Hot) Red Carpet

So obviously the buzz on all the fashion blogs and entertainment channels today is centered on the red carpet from last night's Emmys. I must admit, I only tune in for the pre-show to see what all the celebs are wearing and to get the scoop on who was hot and who was totally not. Why waste three hours of “I’d like to thank God and the academy” when I can Google all that shiz the next day?

The Weekly Wrap Up: What a Freaking Week!

Big week. Huge. First was St. Patrick's Day. Then we spoke to both the Millionaire Matchmaker and last year's Top Chef, Stephanie Izard (who are both much better female role models than some people out there).

The Five Questions We Ask Everyone: Top Chef Winner Stephanie Izard

If it’s one thing we’ve learned here at CC, it’s that all people are fascinating (Yes, even your econ professor). Let’s face it - people love to glimpse into the lives of other people. Disagree? Then please explain why you’re currently looking at your friend’s brother’s girlfriend’s cousin’s photos on Facebook.
