Va-Va-Bardeen: The Hawtness Makes a Fleeting Return
















We admit, possums, that, being suckers for romance, we rather enjoyed the HoJo reunion of sorts this week (since all celebrity couples must have a revolting blended nickname, our math went like this: Howie + Joey = HoJo). As Miss XaXa put it, it was so Like Water for Chocolate, Howie sending out raw meat to his little NooYawk bear, since they couldn't actually be together anymore.

(Confidential to Joey in the black muumuu: Joey, possum, you may be taking the Eye-talian thing a bit far. Just because Sicilian widows dress all in black doesn't mean you have to. And black may be slimming, but, oy, horizontal stripes, possum, are not your friends.)

(And, well, isn't that Sara Nguyen? And what is she wearing? Why, it's high heels and a very low-cut top. Fancy that.)

But what thrilled and tortured us most this week was the fleeting return of Lia Bardeen looking, well, hot. Once you go straight, Lia, you never go back, eh? (We're speaking of her hair, of course, possums.) But oh, why so brief a look at her, Bravo? Why not lingering close-ups of her in her black haltertop as she ate, er, tuna tartare? Oh wait, never mind. She ate at the other restaurant; the close-ups would have been of her spitting out.

Still, Bravo, work with us. How about a little bonus footage--a hair-toss here, a burst of laughter there--in the slow motion so beloved of 1970's shampoo ads?

I missed the epi, but the first thing I thought of looking at the pic is - now what is Sarah wearing???

Ah, Bravo is teasing and tantalizing us with snippets of past cheftestants. Joey, however, got way too much air time. My eyeballs are still smarting.

Who was responsible for the butchering of the butcher papered host's stand? Pack your matt knife and go.

My first thought when I saw Lia with the (BAD!) highlights was that she looks just like Rachael Ray. Hopefully she didn't go to the same colorist, or she will become a crack-monkey who makes disgusting food (the same fate that befell Ms. Ray after she streaked her 'do.
