So much has happened this week, and we're still catching our breath from all the hot news and gossip. But we'll definitely have a moment to drink in the Top Chef Season 14 finale airing Thursday night. Ahead of the big night, The Daily Dish caught up with the eliminated contestant who reflected on the experience of being on the show before becoming a cheftestant this season. We suggest you stop reading here if you want to avoid any SPOILERS. We're breaking down some of the buzziest moments from last night in The Daily Dish Morning After.
1. Padma's a Softie
Yes, sometimes Padma Lakshmi cries. How do we know? Well, Sheldon Simeon told us when he revealed all about his elimination. "So Padma's super sweet. She had tears in her eyes. I started crying a little bit. And Tom [Colicchio]'s been super supportive all season, and he's had some really amazing words to say. And that felt good to send me off." You can find out if Shirley Chung or Brooke Williamson reigns supreme Thursday at 9/8c.
2. Lisa Vanderpump Does Not Hear Your Shade
Especially when it comes to how she treats her kids, Max and Pandora. If she wants to buy them each a home to call their own, she'll do it, as she recently shared with us. "Also I had such pleasure doing it. I did it as much for me as I did for them."
3. Tom Sandoval Will Cry If He Wants To
His reasoning for all the waterworks? "I think that's mostly just CG [computer graphics]." Um, if you say so.
4. Dorit Kemsley Loves Herself Some Fashion...
...Week. The designer/The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mama finally answers the age-old question: Is it more fun to attend a fashion show or throw one?
5. The Atlanta Gang's All Here
And sometimes they'll be drama, according to Shereé Whitfield. "You have to be able to know how to be a good friend to have a good friend," she said. "So I definitely know that you have to be able to trust somebody, so if you don't completely trust somebody then you guys can't really move forward in that capacity because you don't really think this person has your back 100 percent."
