‘Top Chef’: Two eliminations for the price of one

After last week’s epic meltdown at Judges’ Table, this week’s ‘Top Chef’ felt a little lacking in the drama department, even with a double elimination. But it was stuffed with some really impressive food.

The show started with an awesome mise-en-place race for the Quickfire, but it had a twist: After teams finished their prep work, they had to make a dish using the ingredients they just prepared.

Oh, and the 15-minute timer to finish all the dishes started when the FIRST team finished its prep work. How deliciously cruel was that? I loved it.

Saying goodbye to 'Larry King Live'

Ladies and gents, the time has come for Larry King to officially hang up his suspenders after 25 years. The finale of “Larry King Live” is airing tonight at 9 p.m. ET.

This is Larry King, we’re talking about, so of course we’re going to send him off with a bang. We’ve got plenty of surprises in store for both King and the viewers at home.

Plus, we’ll be live-streaming the red carpet arrivals at Spago as well as the viewing party starting at 8 p.m. ET. You’ll get to see all of the celebs showing up to wish Larry well. If you can’t be stationed in front of the TV tonight, follow @CNNShowbiz, where we’ll be live-tweeting from the red carpet and viewing party starting, you guessed it, at 8 p.m. (We’re not calling this “Larrypalooza” for nothing.)

"It's been a hell of a marriage,” King has said of his time spent with CNN. “This is not a divorce."

And while it’s certainly a bittersweet moment, “there's a time to go,” King said. “You know when it's time."

'A-Team' director: Movie was victim of marketing misstep

Man, if only “The A-Team” had better marketing, it totally would’ve found a larger audience at the box office this summer – or so says the film’s director, Joe Carnahan.

The filmmaker told the Wall Street Journal, “We kind of fell victim to a marketing misstep in that there wasn’t necessarily an understanding of what the show was. We didn’t do an adequate enough job of telling people what the movie was, if you know what I mean.”

Carnahan thinks that the film, which totaled to just $77 million, could've been a bigger hit, particularly among women.

Jon Favreau on why he won't direct 'Iron Man 3'

The third time definitely won't be the charm for Jon Favreau. According to New York Magazine's Vulture, the director won't return to helm "Iron Man 3."

Favreau, who directed both "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2," explained to the Los Angeles Times that he wasn’t leaving behind the tale of Tony Stark because of a rift in his relationship with Marvel but because he wanted to “find something that lights a fire” for him as a filmmaker.

He told the LAT that he wants the opportunity to “blow people away, which is easier to do with a project that isn’t loaded with built-in expectations.”

Happy Holidays! Love, The Kardashians

Has your mailbox, e- or otherwise, been a little light on holiday well wishes this year? Don’t feel down! The Kardashians are sharing their Christmas card photo with you….and everybody else with Internet access.

Kim Kardashian has posted all 17 iterations of the above shot on her blog at Celebuzz.com. Photographed by Nick Saglimbeni, some of the images are in a dramatic black and white, a few others offer stylized behind-the-scenes glimpses into the making of a Kardashian Christmas card, while others depict the mini-family that has sprung up within the clan, that of Kourtney, Scott Disick and their son, Mason. Another, of course, is just of Kim.

The reality TV star explains in her blog post that the family takes a photo for the holiday each year, and they decided to go all out for 2010.

“We went super glam this year and each went for our own look. Kourt chose a tailored suit to match Mason and Scott, Khloe went for gorgeous peach ruffles and I chose a floor-length white gown,” Kim Kardashian explains. “How stunning do Kendall and Kylie look!? This might be my favorite of all our family Christmas cards!”

Twins on the way for Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon deserve a second round of congratulations: The couple is expecting twins!

Nick Cannon confirmed the news on New York’s 92.3 radio station Thursday morning with a special story about what famous couple was the first to find out that Cannon and his wife are expecting twins.

There’s been plenty of speculation about whether the baby's a boy or a girl - or, if there was more than one on the way - since Carey first confirmed she was pregnant, but Cannon, 30, says they were wary of revealing too much.
