'Private Chefs of Beverly Hills' host medieval murder mystery

It’s another gorgeous day in Beverly Hills and the private chefs of Big City Chefs have three new events this week - all of the utmost importance. Chefs Brooke and Brian see to a medieval murder mystery party, chefs Stuart and Manouschka find themselves at the mercy of “Foodzilla,” and chefs Sasha and Jesse stand at the helm of a gourmet dinner club.

First stop: a Scottish Castle located in the heart of Beverly Hills. The chefs must create a multiple-course, 17th century English feast that also incorporates clues to expose a murderous dinner guest. If Medieval Times and Clue were to have a love child, this party would be it.

Unbeknown to the chefs, they too will become part of the murder mystery. Brooke, who is five months pregnant, is assigned the role of the neighborhood wench. (Badum-tish!) Brian is subjected to a pleather and vinyl ensemble somewhere between a cheap “Alice in Wonderland” costume and a MC Hammer video. After the humiliation passes, the quirky guests gnaw on turkey legs, drink from goblets and refer to each other as lords and ladies - all in all, a pretty normal affair. Ultimately, it is the vegetarian dinner guest who is revealed as the lethal milady. Irony ensues. FULL POST

The challenges this week: a doggy debutante’s coming out party, “glamping” (we’ll get to what that even means in a second…) and Botox beauty bash. FULL POST

'P' in P. Diddy gets a new meaning

The “P” in P. Diddy just acquired a whole new, more literal meaning.

Martin Silver, the owner of Georgi Vodka, is demanding an apology from Sean “Diddy” Combs after the hip-hop mogul made defamatory (albeit elementary) observations about rivaling vodka brands.

“If you’re not drinking Ciroc Vodka, then you’re drinking pee pee,” Diddy told partiers at Greenhouse, a popular New York City nightclub. Diddy has a 50 percent profit share in the French label vodka, Ciroc and according to the New York Post, has recently begun referring to himself as “Ciroc Obama.”

As retaliation, beverage tycoon Silver did what any normal, vengeful person would do - attempt to send the hip-hop mogul a toilet bowl full of vodka. FULL POST
