Editor's Note: We know you missed Head Judge Tom Colicchio's blog as much as we did, so we couldn't be happier to say "He's back!" Chef Tom sat down with our very own Andy Cohen and answered the questions we've been dying to ask. Also, watch what happened when Andy sat down with Tom and Rocco DiSpirito here!

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? WE MISSED YOU!

I was out in LA opening a restaurant, doing my day job! Like most restaurant openings, it was a tremendous amount of work, and effort, and focus, so I had to bail on the blog until it was up and running. I was really happy to see Anthony Bourdain and Rocco blogging! They're doing such a great job and it's so interesting to read their opinions from both the inside and outside. They're giving an overview from both what they know of production and also from what they're seeing as viewers.

DO YOU HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT THEIR BLOG WAR THAT'S GOING ON?

It seems like they've buried the hatchet. Anthony fired the first shot, but I don't think it's very serious. They both respect each other and I think they're having fun.
