Top Chef New York

SPOILER ALERT!

fabioWell, it’s official, my love Fabio was eliminated last night 😦  It was unfortunate because everyone in the semi-finals cooked well, so he went home for a good dish, but not as good as the others I suppose.  It was quite a shock to see both Fabio and Stefan on the bottom.  One of them had to go home, and they sent Fabio.  All I can say is that Stefan better win this show because he was incredibly lazy in this past episode…didn’t seem to care any more.  

It is a sad day in Top Chef history, but, Fabio was so incredibly popular he is definitely going to win Fan Favorite and probably get his own show or something seeming he is soooo personable (everyone loves him).  

I just watched a video with him and he said that he has a new cookbook coming out, an offer to do a TV show, and his own food brand coming out in a month. Yessssss.

He’s Just Not That Into You Review

Filed under: Uncategorized — smackamack @ 5:37 pm

he_s_just_not_that_into_you_movie_posterPlot: In Kwapis’ adaptation of Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo’s best-selling self-help book He’s Just Not That Into You follows the love lives of a dozen or so characters. Ginnifer Goodwin stars as Gigi, a young women attempting to understand the mixed signals she gets from the men she’s dating. She gets advice from a bar owner (Justin Long) who prides himself on understanding the ins and outs of the dating scene. Gigi’s co-worker Janine (Jennifer Connelly) finds herself involved in a major redecorating project with her husband, Ben (Bradley Cooper). Unbeknownst to Janine, Ben contemplates an affair with Anna (Scarlett Johansson), an attractive woman trying to make a career as a singer. Another of Gigi’s friends at work, Beth (Jennifer Aniston), enjoys a successful, healthy relationship with Neil (Ben Affleck), but storm clouds hover over them as he has no interest in getting married. Kris Kristofferson co-stars as Beth’s father. ~ Perry Seibert, All Movie Guide

For all you girls out there who have read He’s Just Not that Into You (and if you have you better get off your f**king ass and buy it) this film is a must.  I didn’t think the film was anything revolutionary or new, but, it was really fun and sweet.  I thought they did a good job trying to stay true to the book (which is hard seeming its a self-help book).  

I give this film **** because its a great chick flick to see with your friends or boyfriend, easy to watch, good music, and good looking people to star at.  I recommend it for ages 12+.
