And everywhere else. Her ego is so huge too. Now that she's getting a spin-off, she'll be even more insufferable.

Bobby Brown was her one big(ish) client. She's a huge joke among the Atlanta legal community.

lol! Yeah, she's always namedropping Bobby Brown, and that was so long ago it's embarrassing to mention him.

Bravo's just as much of a joke these days, honestly. I only ever watched for Top Chef, but even that's gotten pretty farfetched lately.

I like Top Chef too, but even that is kinda a "like" sometimes. Some of the product placement and challenges = awful. I don't like Wolfgang or Emeril. Hugh wasn't there enough. Their winners have improved lately, though. Last Chance Kitchen even improved this season in the sense that some of the challenges were interesting enough that they could/should have been main-show challenges. The winners there are always predictable and usually have little to do with what they cook, though (whoever Tom wants to win would have to produce something raw/inedible to lose and even then, might win.) /essay

Hugh Acheson is my favorite thing about Top Chef now, and I'm a huge fan of his restaurants. I'll probably be going to one of them tomorrow night or Thursday, depending on when my friend gets in town. So exciting!

Oooh, that's awesome!! Enjoy!!

I *love* Hugh!! He's so witty and on point.
