Possum Communiqué





























Well, possums, thus endeth the season that established the FCC is apparently ok with “pussy” and “twat” airing on basic cable, the season of interesting personalities and not-so-interesting food.

On a personal note, it was also the season that proved once and for all that our fan favorite endorsement is the kiss of death. For Season 6, we will be accepting cash and gifts from cheftestants in order not to endorse them for fan favorite.

Now that the season is over, posting will be much lighter, as and when the spirit moves us. We are working on a couple of interviews for you, and will post them when they’re ready. We haven’t yet decided whether we will blog Marco Pierre White’s new show, Chopping Block, but we will most definitely keep our claws in working order for Top Chef Masters when it airs. (And look for us on Twitter, where we are sure to spend far too much time.)

Mil gracias, vielen Dank, and merci to you, the possums, for reading, commenting, and sending in tips and piquant (often salacious) rumors (and photographs). (And as the casting and other preparations for Season 6 get underway, please continue to send those in.)

Mientras tanto, hasta la próxima….

I took the bait. Thank you for making Season 5 so much more enjoyable than it would have been. Enjoy the break.

I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful, witty, sassy, commentary all season long for Top Chef 5..

I'm Jamie Lauren's mom, and I must say you have brightened up my work day many times with your pix & words...I think my all time favorite was Fabio in his "Saturday Night Fever' suit! And, thank you for fair treatment of my 'girl'...Her family & friends are very proud of her!

I will miss you...hurry back...

For a blog dedicated to "other matters gustatory," what better artwork than Top Pussy?

Charlus and (oh so silent) Miss XaXa, thanks for a great season and for disecting Season 5 like the Warren Commission watching the Zapruder film. I can still see Stefan's head snapping back in a cloud of blood. Looking forward to Season 6.

Miss you already. It's off to my bunky bed to hibernate until the start of Season 6.

I have really enjoyed this blog. Before I boarded the Carla fan bus and had to watch to see her, I was watching the show more to keep up with this blog than the other way around. Amuse-Biatch is the only reason I'll be tuning into season 6. Great job!

i don't comment too often..but I check this blog like CRAZY; it always makes me laugh!

I pray that for next season that they actually make the show "Top Scallop", just so I can see your proverbial heads explode. With Fabio and Spike judging. And Ilan with a paper bag on his head. Just because.

Dang, I didn't even get to watch one episode of Chopping Block and it's already canceled.
