‘Top Chef’ lays down the law

I think last night’s episode of “Top Chef” taught us all a very important lesson: “There is man law, and there is Chef Law.”

After some initial foreshadowing from an interview and at-home clip, we head to the Quickfire challenge, with Paula Deen as guest judge. Antonia beat me to the joke, predicting that this will be a “fry me something, roll it in butter, dip it in some mayonnaise kind of challenge.”

She is spot on, of course. The challenge is to create a deep-fried dish, with the winner taking home $5,000. Antonia shines, and Paula proclaims her dish easily the best. (By the way, fair warning before you click for more: There's an elimination spoiler at the end of this recap.)

Jennifer Lopez breaks down on 'Idol'

On Wednesday night, we cried right along with Jennifer Lopez.

The "American Idol" judge broke down after having to inform contestant Chris Medina that he didn't make it into the Top 24.

Medina had been an early favorite, as fans cheered for him and his steadfast devotion to his critically injured fiance, Juliana Ramos. Ramos suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident two months before their wedding.

"When I had my first drink of beer, I must have been 4 years old," Arquette tells Winfrey, according to Us Weekly. "I was down in the basement with my dad and beer was there and I just grabbed it and drank it. And I remember that. It's one of my earliest memories."

It was also the start of his lifelong struggle with alcohol and drugs.

Alyssa Milano's feeling happy and healthy

Alyssa Milano hates surprises — and that's exactly why the mom-to-be plans to find out the sex of her baby.

"There's no way I'm not going to be able to," Milano, who recently announced that she and husband Dave Bugliari are expecting their first child, told CNN yesterday at the L.A. premiere of her new film "Hall Pass."

"I don't like it when people keep secrets from me, and I can't keep secrets from other people," she explains. "I always say I'm the person who gives you your Christmas present two weeks before Christmas because I'm so excited to give it to you. So I don't think that kind of person can wait to find out. The suspense would kill me, absolutely.”

'The Bodyguard' to get a more modern remake

Cue the "has Hollywood officially run out of ideas?" comments now:  "The Bodyguard" is the latest movie to get a big-screen reboot.

The 1992 film — which spawned a best-selling soundtrack that included "I Will Always Love You," "I'm Every Woman" and "I Have Nothing" — starred Kevin Costner as a Secret Service Agent assigned with protecting a singer (Whitney Houston) from a crazed fan. While safeguarding her body, he also captures her heart.

According to Deadline, the new movie will have a more modern twist. This time around, it's an Iraq war vet trying to keep the diva out of danger, and thanks to today's world of Twitter, Google Maps, and TMZ that won't be easy.

As of yet, no actors are attached to this tuned-up version of "The Bodyguard," which begs the question: Who would you like to see in the leading roles?
