EAT MY SHORTS! SPRINGFIELD TAKES OVER BRAVO’S “TOP CHEF MASTERS” AS THE STARS AND WRITERS BEHIND THE ICONIC HIT TV SHOW “THE SIMPSONS” JUDGE THE CHEFS QUICKFIRE CHALLENGE
It’s A Week Of Class, Catfights, And Charities As “The Real Housewives Of New York City” Take A Vacation And “9 By Design” Raises Money For A Good Cause
NEW YORK – May 10, 2010 – On this week’s “Top Chef Masters,” airing on Bravo Wednesday, May 12th @ 10 p.m. ET/PT, Springfield comes alive as Hank Azaria, Matt Groening, and Matt Selman – the voices and writers behind the critically acclaimed series, “The Simpsons” – drop by to judge the quickfire challenge based on their character’s appetites. In the elimination round, the seven remaining chefs must combine exotic, and often unappetizing proteins in an appealing surf-and-turf inspired duo.
This Tuesday, May 11 @ 10 p.m. ET/PT, tune into “9 By Design” when the Novogratzes open their home for a charity event to raise funds for a friend’s daughter who has leukemia. Bob takes the lead with raising money for his oldest son Wolfie’s basketball team, while Cortney throws herself into fundraising for a dear friend’s daughter who has leukemia and desperately needs to pay for a bone marrow transplant. Cortney adds more to the family’s already full plate when she agrees to make over a big client’s office space without first negotiating the terms of the budget. As both benefits bump up against each other and the money-losing office renovation kicks into overdrive, Bob and Cortney realize that the souring economy may make it harder to sell their two expensive Manhattan properties than they thought.
Then, on “The Real Housewives of New York City” airing Thursday, May 13th @ 10p.m. ET/PT, the women escape the madness of NYC and let their hair and guards down as they soak up the sun and suds during Ramona’s one-of-a-kind Renewal Getaway. Bethenny, still reeling from her personal loss, takes comfort in the company of her girlfriends and the drama seems an ocean away until Kelly starts to get a little too obsessed about revisiting the past. Meanwhile, back in the city, LuAnn works on her new song in the recording studio and goes on a very intriguing date.
Immediately after “The Real Housewives of New York City,” stay tuned for a special episode of “Watch What Happens Live!” at 11PM ET/PT. This week’s guests include “The Real Housewives of New York City” Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan. The Countess performs her new single “Money Can’t By You Class”.
