'Top Chef: Seattle' recap: Will Brooke or Kristen win the 'Finale'?

Two excellent chefs do battle in front of a live audience

For the first time ever, the finale of "Top Chef" will take place in front of a live audience. Suddenly, "Top Chef" looks a lot like "Iron Chef." Not that that's a bad thing. I'm just happy that we have two women in the finals, which is so encouraging, and yes, well-deserved. I'm both Team Kristen and Team Brooke, though. I wish they could both win.

Exclusive: This house is really a killer on 'Hoarding: Buried Alive'

After a woman dies, her adult children walk in on a nightmare mess

Tonight's episode of "Hoarding: Buried Alive" is called "This House Killed Her," so you know it's bad. How bad, you ask? Well, you can watch below if you're not sure. And you have a strong stomach. That would help.

Do we really need an 8th season of 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'?

More importantly, can one new wife save the show?

So, we all know that "The Real Housewives of Orange County" will be returning for an 8th season on April 1 (insert for April Fool's Day joke here). The question is, how many of us care? And is plunking just one new housewife into the mix enough to keep this branch of the franches alive?

The new cast of celebs for 'Dancing with the Stars' is revealed

Lisa Vanderpump, Andy Dick and others will hoof it for charity

As promised, the names of the new cast of "Dancing with the Stars" were revealed on ABC's "Good Morning America" today, and they are... okay, I guess. As usual, we have some athletes, some Olympic gold medal winners, and at least one potential train wreck/inspiration (Andy Dick), though no name suggests inherent drama (and more than a few are head scratchers). We'll just have to see if the show can find the ratings gold that has, of late, been illusive. The new season starts Mon. March 18 at 8:00 p.m. Here's the list of 11 celebrities and their professional partners.

'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' recap: The gals head to Paris to fight

Is Kim falling off the wagon just after she shoves Taylor on it?

You know what's fun? Watching rich, miserable people mess up a perfectly good vacation. Not just any vacation, mind you, but one to Paris. Granted, in this episode we only get the first glimmers of how completely this trip is going to go off the rails, but with these women we can guess pretty well what's going to happen. My suspicion? None of it good.

'The Bachelor' recap: Sean and his final three face overnight dates in Thailand

AshLee, Lindsay and Catherine must decide whether or not to sleep over

This is the big week -- not only do we have the final three in a warm, exotic setting (goodbye, parkas; hello, bikinis), we have the dreaded Overnight Dates. This is all about the ladies having to decide between what they want to do (get naked with Sean) and what they should do (look like proper young ladies on a television show their families, their bosses and anyone they ever hook up with in the future can see for all eternity on the Internet). You can practically see the little angels on one should and the devils sitting opposite. Darn you, long arm of network television!

Did Anne Hathaway make a horrible fashion mistake at the Oscars?

The Oscar-winner wore Prada at the last minute, but maybe shouldn't have

Anyone who saw "Les Miserables" (as I did) has to concede that Anne Hathaway richly deserved her Oscar. But whether or not she won anyone over with her red carpet attire is another matter.

Red Carpet Oscar Rewind: Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Adele and more

What worked on the red carpet at the 2013 Academy Awards?

For every event, there are different rules. At the Grammys, it's best to be wild. At the Golden Globes, it's best to get drunk. And at the Oscars, all anyone needs to do is look dress up and look nice. Not too hard, right? I guess it is, because this year was definitely in the less-than-stunning category. While some celebrities did bring the glamor, others tried too hard, went too bland or brought the Klingon (Halle Berry, how could you)? Here's a look at what worked and what didn't from Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Lawrence, Adele, Amanda Seyfried, Helen Hunt, Naomi Watts and more.

Red Carpet Oscar Hopes: Will sideboob visit the 2013 Academy Awards?

The latest fashion trend could be a wardrobe malfunction for Jessica Chastain, Adele and more

In addition to wondering who will win Best Picture and Best Actress, we have another question to ask ourselves -- who, if anyone, will be rocking sideboob on the red carpet? The hottest fashion trend of late, sideboob has been popping up (couldn't resist) in soms surprisingly places, so we can expect at least a few brave celebrities to be exposing themselves. The question is, who will take the plunge (alas, cleavage is so passe)?  Here are our best guesses as to who will be wearing what (and who will be showing sideboob) for Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain, Adele, Michelle Williams and more.
