Shucking Clams Like a Girl: Your Take on 'Top Chef'
"I'm a very sarcastic person," Michael Isabella told me this morning. The news that some viewers are upset with his comment (to fellow contestant Jennifer Carroll of Philadelphia) is "disheartening," he says. "I've been friends with Jen since before the show."
He thinks "Top Chef" producers wanted to "hype it up" in advance of tonight's segment, which pits the male and female chefs against one another.
Did he mean what he said, though? Isabella says he doesn't. "Half my staff is female," he says.
His boss's advice: Focus on the challenge and "don't read the blogs," counseled Jose Andres.
