‘Top Chef: All-Stars’ prepares its final course

We started out with 18 contestants coming back to vie for the title that eluded them all the first time around. And after the longest season in “Top Chef” history, it all comes down to this.

In one corner, we have Richard Blais, the mad scientist from Season Four. In the other, Mike Isabella, the antagonistic Mediterranean-style savant from Season Six.

It’s certainly not the final pair I would have predicted. Along the way, we lost fan favorites Carla and Fabio, super-strong competitors Angelo and Dale, and redemption-seeking former finalists, such as Tiffani, Marcel and Casey.

'Thor' star got too muscular for his costume

Hotshot actor Chris Hemsworth is getting a little too big for his britches — or at least his superhero costume.

The "Thor" star says he packed on so much muscle to play Marvel's hammer-wielding warrior that he couldn't fit into his crime-fighting clothes.

"I got the part and immediately started looking at the comic books, and the guy is 500 pounds or something and looks like Schwarzenegger," the Aussie actor, whose film hits theaters on May 6, tells the L.A. Times. "And I thought, 'OK, I'm not gonna get to that. But I have to get bigger.'"

'Parenthood' takes the leap

The Bravermans return after a break without the clouds that seemed to be hanging over them - well, most of them anyway.

Pre-break saw Jasmine and Crosby breaking up after a fight and infidelity on Crosby's part; the infidelity was with Max's therapist Gabby, which affected Kristina, Adam and Max. Sarah was back to bartending, and her unreliable ex was in and then back out of the scene.

While he was there, he did spark some creativity in her - Sarah's working on refining a play she wrote. Zeek, who brings his own style to being a supportive parent, decides to help Sarah with her dream of being a writer.

Chris Brown's 'F.A.M.E.' lands at No. 1

The predictions proved to be right - Chris Brown has arrived at the top of the charts this week.

The singer, who has made headlines with his outburst at “Good Morning America," has achieved his first No. 1 album with his latest effort, “F.A.M.E.”

According to Billboard.com, the record sits atop the Billboard 200 chart with 270,000 sold. That entry marks his second-best sales week, only surpassed by his 2007 sophomore record “Exclusive,” which hit No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with 294,000 sold.

Rob Lowe: Charlie Sheen could play harder than me 'by a nose'

Rob Lowe, presumably recounting one of the stories he only tells his friends – as the title of his soon-to-be-released autobiography suggests – tells Vanity Fair in the magazine’s May issue that the Charlie Sheen he grew up with was one of the “uncool” guys, like him.

“The cool girls in Malibu had no time for me,” the handsome actor tells VF. “I wasn’t a beach volleyball player, a surfer, or a quasiburnout.”

But by 1987, Sheen and Lowe were young Hollywood stars, with Lowe filming “Masquerade” in the Hamptons as Sheen put in work on “Wall Street.”
