'Top Chef': Family brings out the best

This week’s “Top Chef” was the last episode before we move on to the finals rounds, so it’s arguably the most intense point of the competition.

Somehow, that gave us one of the most cordial episodes of the season. (If you don’t want to know what happened, stop reading now.)

Before the Quickfire, we see the chefs hanging out in their loft, with Richard asking Antonia to predict what’s going to happen. Antonia: “Is Padma coming in here?” Cue Padma’s entrance and the ensuing contestant freak out.

Mariah Carey: I'm embarrassed by Gadhafi gaffe

Mariah Carey is the latest celebrity to respond to reports that she accepted payment to perform for Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi.

In a statement, Carey said she was “naïve and unaware of who I was booked to perform for. I feel horrible and embarrassed to have participated in this mess."

The singer's statement comes on the heels of similar announcements from fellow stars Beyoncé and Nelly Furtado, who have also come under fire for accepting money to perform for Gadhafi and his family.

David Cook scores 'Idol' exit song

It will suck for the contestants, but rock for David Cook.

The Season 7 winner of "American Idol" has had one of his songs chosen as the exit theme for this year's departing contestants, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Cook's version of the Simple Mind's song "Don't You (Forget About Me)" will be played as the Season 10 contestants depart after elimination. The track was a 1985 hit for the group and made popular by the film "The Breakfast Club."

Past "Idol" exit songs used have included Daughtry's "Home," Carrie Underwood's "Home, Sweet Home," and Will Young's "Leave Right Now."

New 'Blade Runner' movies on the way?

Alcon Entertainment is looking to acquire the rights to produce prequels and sequels to the 1982 cult classic "Blade Runner," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The trade paper reports that the company is in final negotiations to potentially create a franchise around the movie, which was based on Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep."

It was director Ridley Scott's follow-up to the box office smash "Alien," but it was considered a box office bomb at the time, only grossing $27.6 million, according to Boxofficemojo.com.

Kate Winslet on Botox, weight and motherhood

Winslet gets to do just that in HBO's "Mildred Pierce," a period drama in which she plays a frumpy divorcée. "I’ve never understood the notion that actors and actresses should look great on-screen just because they’re on-screen. That doesn’t make sense to me," she says.
