Bobby Flay's looking for the 'Next Great Restaurant'

Celebrity chef and restaurant owner Bobby Flay believes that just about every American has one thing in common: an idea for a great restaurant.

"The restaurant business is about the people who have the drive to make their eateries work," Flay says. "Anyone can make a good pitch, but do they have the personality and drive to make it work and grow?"

That's the concept of "America's Next Great Restaurant," a reality competition show premiering March 6 on NBC. Each week, Flay and three other judges - Chipotle founder Steve Ells and chefs Curtis Stone and Lorena Garcia - will mentor contestants who each have their own restaurant concepts. The winner will see their concept come to life with a three-restaurant chain financially backed by the four judges.

Kim Kardashian not speaking to Paris Hilton

One person Kim Kardashian doesn't keep up with? Paris Hilton.

Though they were pre-school pals who went on to globe-trot together as adults, the women have since fallen out of touch.

"We had so much fun," Kardashian recalls in the March issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I had never traveled the world like that. It was so neat, all the things we did. I think I learned a lot from her."

Best laid plans on 'Modern Family'

Best laid plans on 'Modern Family'

Last year's Valentine's Day episode was an instant classic, so of course, "Modern Family" had to do a sequel, with the return of Phil and Claire's characters Clive Bixby and Giuliana once again meeting up at the hotel.

Without a doubt, this week's MVP was Ty Burrell portraying Phil Dunphy as Clive ("I don't like to talk about money. But I have exactly ten million dollars"), if only for the scene where "Clive" is waiting for "Giuliana" on a bed naked with rose petals... in the wrong hotel room. And he made that realization the moment an old lady showed up... but of course.

Others' Valentine's Day plans didn't do quite as scheduled - like Jay's elaborate idea to have Gloria get upset and leave a restaurant only to find a romantic dinner waiting at home. As he explained it, "Bam! She looks like a big idiot! And isn't that what Valentine's Day is all about?"

Did I say that?!

Given their access to great lighting, pricey wardrobes and airbrushing, it can be easy to forget that celebrities are, well, like the rest of us. And, just like a lot of us do, they can slip up while responding to a question and say something they didn't mean to say or that may not come across quite as they intended.

Jennifer Lawrence, of course, is just the most recent, with her joke to Rolling Stone that the "little redneck things" that still creep into her L.A. lifestyle include an attraction to her brother. One off-the-cuff comment and the next thing you know, she's a blog item.

But Jennifer's not alone in that camp - we've rounded up a few other celebrities who probably would rather forget a certain interview even happened. Of course, there are certainly more celebrity interview gaffes than we can count. If we missed your personal favorite, remind us in the comments.

Look like LiLo for $575

Forget about that necklace Lindsay Lohan allegedly swiped from a Venice, California jeweler – a charge she pleaded not guilty to on Wednesday.

What was she wearing to court?

Well, to be specific, that second-skin white minidress was crafted by Kimberly Ovitz, and can be purchased for $575.

And while TMZ reports that Lohan’s sartorial choice was chosen to represent innocence and purity - you know, it's white and all - others have questioned if she should’ve opted for a more demure ensemble, ivory-hued or not.

But if you liked her look, act fast: According to ABC News, the dress is already selling out.

‘Top Chef’: Too good for its own good

Asking “Top Chef” contestants to whip up some classic favorites may make for a great lunch, but I’m not sure it makes for great television.

On the other hand, it did help me finally figure out what’s been quietly bothering me about this season of All-Stars.

But before we get to that, let’s talk about the fondue party.
