Tequila shots, Betty White, and a Runway run-in.

Andy Cohen and Padma Lakshmi at the Emmy Awards
Our Top Chef didn't continue its Emmy-winning streak for Outstanding Reality Competition, but you wouldn't know that from last night's tweets. "Entire #topchef team at the bar w/ 'dancing w/ stars' and 'runway' teams! Great seeing @ninagarcia again. Time for a #lobbyparty," our Andy Cohen tweeted before spotting his future soulmate at the award show.

"OK I'm back in the theater and I think I'm in love with the seat filler in @tomcolicchio seat! #marrymeseatfiller #wannagotohboparty?" We're not sure how that played out, but the Bravo team didn't seem fazed after the night's miss. "We're doing tequila shots in the #topchef section!" AC added. "#makelemonsoutoflemonade #happytobenominated."

(Check out pics of Andy, Tom, Padma, and other Bravolebs hitting the Emmy circuit last night.)

TC host Padma Lakshmi echoed that by tweeting, "Oh well...maybe next year! Thanks to all who rooted for us. And thanks to our producers. Now: FUN!" And that she had. The highlight of Padma's evening? "I accidentally groped Betty White! Oops," she posted along with a photo posing with the comedy legend.

Earlier in the night, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Kyle Richards manned the red carpet as a correspondent for The Insider and received support from co-star Camille Grammer. "You go girl! Have fun! Xo," K's former frenemy tweeted.

(Who else burned up the carpet? Check out photos of the night's best and worst looks.)
