Rumormongering

Pete Wells of The New York Times, while discussing his article about cursing chefs, takes the opportunity to share the much-publicized Top Chef conspiracy theory that has a woman winning:"I interviewed Andy Cohen, the Bravo executive responsible for Top Chef. Before he got down to talking how much bleeping this season's contestants have required, he suggested, out of nowhere, that The Times run an article on how many female chefs there are. We've done that, I told him, impatient to move on to the gutter language. But now I'm wondering if he was inadvertently telling me something about the outcome of this season. After all, no woman has won yet. So I'll just toss that into the rumor mill." [Diner's Journal via Eater]
