Wild game and mind games on 'Top Chef: Texas'

This week on “Cold Case: Emeril Lagasse,” the 12 remaining cheftestants took on booze and boars.

But the biggest hurdle was Heather The Steamroller, who has gleefully embraced the path of villainy like some sort of comfort-food-cooking Harvey Dent.

We began with the booze. For the Quickfire, chefs had to pair their dishes with tequila. But not just any tequila! Tequila Don Julio, “the original ultra-premium tequila.” Because mere regular-premium tequila just wouldn't be good enough.

Will women see 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'?

According to New York magazine's Vulture, execs behind the upcoming movie “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” may have reason to worry that women won't show up to see it.

The film is based on Stieg Larsson’s best-seller, and although it boasts a large female readership, some audience polling suggests that ladies aren’t expressing interest in seeing David Fincher's adaptation on the big screen.

Vulture cites polling that shows a large swath of women both over and under 25 who are aware of the movie, but only 36 percent on either side of that age have expressed "definite interest" in seeing it.

Amber Heard: Being out in Hollywood takes bravery

Former “Playboy Club” star Amber Heard says in the December issue of Women’s Health that she never thought of attempting to hide her true self from the public, including potential employers in the entertainment industry.

“You can’t respect yourself if you’re afraid to be who you are,” says the “Rum Diary” actress, 25.  “It requires bravery to do something no one else around you is doing. But the risk was outweighed by the possibility of playing into this horribly detrimental lie that some in Hollywood perpetuate.”

Heard, who stepped out with girlfriend Tasya van Ree at a recent GLAAD event, spoke to AfterEllen.com about her decision: "I think when I became aware of my role in the media, I had to ask myself an important question; 'Am I part of the problem?'"
